Moto 360 Shown Off In New Images – Wireless Charging, Metal Build Confirmed

Almost everyone is looking forward to Motorola’s first step into the Android Wear game, the Moto 360, to finally drop. Motorola has done a good job so far keeping the details of this device a secret, but several of our biggest questions were finally answered in some new pictures.

Luca Viscardi, also known as one of the most fortunate men on the planet today, has a Moto 360 is his possession and decided it was finally time to tease the world with his experience with the watch. Out of the images he shared, two are very important.



These two images reveal many of the very things we were wondering about the Moto 360. The first of those is that the Moto 360 will indeed have wireless charging. This is something that’s been rumored since the watch’s announcement, but remained unconfirmed until now. The charging dock itself is also pretty interesting as the watch lays flat on it but sideways. When charging, a circular charging screen comes up to tell you the current charge level. The time also appears on this screen. Unfortunately though because of the fact the Moto 360 isn’t actually a perfect circle, the charging screen is actually partially cut off.

The other important image reveals the “specs” of the Moto 360, or at least as close as we’ll get for now. 

  • Stainless Steel 316L
  • Optical Heart Rate Sensor
  • Wireless Charging
  • Pedometer
  • Water Resistant IP67

The final image shows the Moto 360 next to the LG G Watch and it’s unexpectedly smaller than the G Watch. Even though it appears to be thicker, users with smaller wrists can rest assured that they will not have a large watch on their wrists.

After giving us these wonderful images, Luca was kind enough to let us know some of the experience he had with the watch, but what really caught our eye was his battery life report. The LG G Watch and Gear Live can comfortably make it through a day, but that’s about it. The Moto 360 on the other hand apparently squeezes 2.5 days out of it’s battery. Once again, Motorola proves to be the king of batteries. You can check out Luca’s full thoughts on the 360 (link below), but fair warning, you’re just going to want it that much more. He also has a gallery filled with even more images of the watch.
