Motorola is set to launch its latest smartwatch sometime next month, but the price and specs for the watch have leaked. The leak came in the form of a Best Buy listing page for the watch that went live too early. The listing showed a retail price for the watch of $250.


Specifications include a 1.5-inch backlit LCD with 320 x 290 resolution and 205 pixels per inch. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 will be used to protect the smartwatch's screen from scratches and breakage. Scratch protection is a big deal on a watch that will see lots of bumps while worn.

Other features will include an optical heart rate monitor, pedometer, and Bluetooth 4.0 for connectivity with smartphones. Most devices running Android 4.3 or later will be compatible with the Moto 360 smartwatch. One thing that the listing on Best Buy doesn't give up is the launch date; the official unveiling is expected during an event in Chicago on September 4.
