Serial leaker Mr. Gadget has revealed some of the specs and software features that will arrive with the Moto 360 smart watch later this summer.When it comes to Motorola's Moto 360 there are two sides to the story. The design of the handset is locked and has been known since Motorola unveiled it earlier in the year. Aside from some speculation the device could come with a plastic variant (we handled it at I/O and it is metal), we know what the 360 will look like, and thanks to Android Wear even what software it will run. However, we do not know much about the specs as Motorola has managed to keep the finer details of its first wearable firmly under wraps. Considering this is arguably the most desired wearable ever, the tech community is ready with anticipation for the smart watch to land in the coming weeks or months. Thanks to Mr. Gadget, we now know that the Moto 360 will ship with wireless charging, while it will also sport a pedometer, optical heart rate sensor and IP67 water resistance rating. The tipster says that the Motorola smart watch will have a battery that far surpasses the ones found in Samsung's Galaxy Gear Live and LG's G Watch, the 360's two main Android Wear competitors. Gadget says that he got two full days and then a half day of use out of the 360 before it needed to be charge. That means the battery lasted for 60 hours, far more than we have seen on other Android Wear smart watches. source: Mr. Gadget
