Full Moto 360 details leaked by premature Best Buy listing

Was that a Moto 360 price tag we just saw or is Best Buy messing with us? You be the judge.

In just over two weeks, Motorola is expected to announce pricing and an availability date for the Moto 360. But it looks like Best Buy spilled the beans about the device a little bit early--including a possible $250 price tag.

Over the weekend, Droid Life spotted a product page for the Moto 360 on Best Buy's site that included specs and the aforementioned pricing. The page has since been taken down, but at this writing was still available in the cache of both Bing and Google.

If Best Buy's pricing is accurate, and not just a placeholder, that would make the Moto 360 $21 more expensive than LG's G Watch and $51 more than the Samsung Gear Live.

The Moto 360 was expected to be more expensive than the the first two Android Wear smartwatches owing to its greater attention to design and an expected wireless charging feature. But a $250 price tag would achieve a higher price without putting it unreasonably out of range compared to the LG and Samsung timepieces.

Beyond price, the Best Buy page also listed a bunch of specs, some of which we've seen before thanks to the recent leaks from Italian radio host Luca Viscardi.

Based on Best Buy's page, the Moto 360 display is a 1.5-inch LCD with 320-by-290 resolution at 205 pixels per inch, all encased by Gorilla Glass 3. There's also a built-in heart rate monitor, a pedometer, and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity, and the device is water proof up to 3.3 feet for 30 minutes.

The Moto 360 will be voice activated, as are the LG and Samsung watches, and the new watch will have vibration alert for incoming notifications.

Best Buy's product page also says the watch has a stainless steel case, a plastic case back, and a Texas Instruments processor. The page did not mention anything about wireless charging.

It's not clear if all of these specs will hold up when Motorola makes the official announcement on Thursday, September 4. But with previous leaks offering similar details about the smartwatch, there's a good chance Best Buy gave us an accurate (albeit accidental) sneak preview of the Moto 360.
