A Leaked Look at the Moto 360’s Wireless Charging Dock

The Moto 360 is quickly becoming the most-anticipated device of the year for Android users. We already think that the Moto 360 will cause more people to side only with Android. We also believe that those who have both an Android and iPhone will put more weight into using their Android device since the Moto 360 is only available for use with Android devices.

Though the release is due later this month or on early September, we now have a glimpse of the wireless charger that was previously confirmed for the Moto 360. It’s important to note that the other Android Wear Devices, the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live do not support wireless charging and instead, use a proprietary pin connector adding to the bundle of chords by your night stand.

The wireless charging cradle for the Moto 360 holds the smartwatch at an angle that makes it easy to see the time if it were to be placed on a desk or nightstand. While charging, the Moto 360 will display the percentage of how charged the device is.

Other Leaked Features for the Moto 360

With the wireless charging dock being the biggest leak, others were sure to follow thanks to the guys over at Mister Gadget. The Moto 360 will also feature IP67 certification which, put in simpler terms, means that the Moto 360 is water resistant as well as dust resistant as we would hope a smartwatch to be (something of considerable cost shouldn’t be useless in the rain).

Also, based on the usage of Mister Gadget and their testing, the Moto 360 will last roughly 2.5 days of battery life. Although, previous leaks suggested it would be able to last about a week, whereas the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live seems to last just over a day depending on usage.

The Moto 360 will also feature stainless steel, interchangeable watch bands with the images in the gallery sporting a leather band. It’s been noted that the watch will be available in two versions later this year including black and silver. It is very likely that the silver one will be the first to launch later this summer.

A feature that hasn’t been widely mentioned is that the Moto 360 will also have an optical heart rate sensor on the back and support pedometer functions.

What’s Missing About the Moto 360

So far, we still have no idea what price points we will have to pay to get the Moto 360 around our wrist. There’s also no specific date. We only have a time frame that Google gave at Google I/O 2014 saying that it will be launched later in the summer and summer is one month from being over. It is believed that Motorola is finishing up their next flagship phone, the Moto X+1 so that they can launch the device at the same time.
