Moto 360 smartwatch will be compatible with Android 4.3+ devices

Moto 360

The widely acclaimed Moto 360 smartwatch has now been revealed to be compatible with any device running Android 4.3 and up. Motorola just gave out this information while speaking at the Meet Moto 360 event which was conducted via Google Hangouts. The Moto 360 requires connectivity to Bluetooth 4.0 LE which is a feature that came with Android 4.3 to support better pairing between devices.

We haven’t heard anything in terms of pricing or launch apart from the tentative summer release date, but we’re hoping the device will land in the markets early. Google has certainly struck a home run with its new Android Wear project, with plenty of manufacturers already announcing plans to launch hardware. The likes of Fossil and LG will launch their own Android Wear based smartwatch too, but without the visual appeal of the Moto 360.

This Motorola smartwatch has generated massive interest across the world within just a day of its launch, so we hope the manufacturer is able to meet demand when the time arrives. Pricing will be very crucial in its success as well.

  1. Yeah. So many companies are working on this. I guess this whole year is going to be about wearable tech.

  2. Quite unexpected of Motorola but it’s also a good way for this struggling company to find a segment separate from smartphones.
    I’m glad that more and more companies are producing wearable electronics.

  3. That’s a good news. That will include so many devices to the list. I’m happy that the company is not going the Samsung way and restricting the watch to only Motorola smartphones. But that was never expected of Motorola.
