Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch to come in July

€249 price tag rumoured

Although many expected it to be quite as bit more expensive, according to the latest report, the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch could cost around €249 and be on retail/e-tail shelves in July.

The fresh report comes from the French website Journal du Geek which suggest that the Moto 360 could be ready and on shelves in July and carry a €249 price tag. The site did not reveal many details other than the information came from their sources and although sketchy, the info is pretty much in line with what have been brewing in rumor pot for quite some time.

Many, yours truly included, consider the Moto 360 as the first real smartwatch as it retains the look and design of a standard wrist watch and not a large box like thing sitting a top of your wrist. The rectangular design of some other smartwatches that are currently on the market could appeal to those feeling nostalgia for the Casio calculator watch, but Moto 360 simply looks better.

There have not been many details regarding the actual specifications of the Motorola Moto 360 but some earlier rumors suggested both premium sapphire glass protection, secret charging method, with some sort of wireless charging due to lack of USB port, and an ability to remove it from the strap and replace the strap with some other Moto 360 strap which will be available in multiple colors.

The smartwatch race is certainly heating up and we are sure we will see more than a few devices by the end of this year.
