Motorola’s highly-anticipated, Android Wear-powered, voice activated smartwatch – the Moto 360 – is expected to see its release, later this year.

However, as we all await the wrist device’s public debut – at an event the company reportedly has planned for September 4, some have noticed that the device is already listed on Best Buy’s mobile site.

Appearing on the U.S retailer’s website a full 2-weeks early, the device was listed as a price of $249.99 and is currently expected to feature a 1.5″ backlit LCD touch screen, complete with a resolution of 320 x 290 at 205 pixels-per-inch.

In addition, the Moto is reported to also take advantage of Corning’s ‘Gorilla Glass 3’ – making the device both durable and rigid for everyday use. On the health side of things, the Moto is expected to give Apple’s reportedly-in-development “iWatch” a clean run for its money, too, thanks to its in-built optical heart rate monitor (PPG).

The sensor will “helps you achieve or stay within your ideal heart rate range,” says Motorola.

Those into their fitness tracking will also find a pedometer. Allowing for the measuring of the number of steps you take in a given day, Motorola says that its Moto 360 smartwatch will see you “easily able to monitor your fitness progress throughout the last 24 hours.”

Other specifications revealed by the listing, include:

● Compatible with most devices with an Android 4.3 or later operating system – For wide-ranging use
● Bluetooth 4.0 technology- Enables wireless syncing to select devices for hassle-free connectivity.
● Voice activated – Allows you to use spoken commands to operate the smart watch via the built-in microphone.
● Vibration alert – Discreetly notifies you of important events.
● Digital watch interface – Provides crisp, clear readouts of the time and date. Built-in alarm and calendar features help you stay on schedule.
● Waterproof up to 3.3′ for up to 30 minutes – So you can safely wear the watch while swimming or engaging in other aquatic activities.
● Stainless-steel case and plastic case back – Offer durability. The adjustable-length Horween leather band and metal buckle closure deliver a secure, comfortable fit.
● Built-in lithium-ion battery pack – Provides long-lasting operation. The battery-strength indicator lets you know when the battery needs to be powered via the included dock and charger.
● Texas Instruments processor – Helps ensure fast, efficient performance.

While Apple is also thought to be planning its own media event for September 9, the company is not expected to provide any further detail on its reported health wearable.

Instead, the unannounced event is now expected to focus on providing details of Apple’s next-generation iPhone(s), which could include the introduction of new iPhone models with larger, sapphire crystal-type displays.

In terms of pricing of its own wrist wearable, one report to surface from KGI Securities analyst – Ming Chi Kuo – last year, suggested that the higher-end models of Apple’s “iWatch” could end up costing consumers “several thousand dollars.”

Exactly how accurate that prediction may turn out to be, is unclear.

Apple is expected to unveil the device, sometime next year.
