MotoACTV Taught Motorola A lot for the Moto X and the Moto 360

Right now, Motorola is doing a Hangout on Air about the Moto 360, so you may see a lot of Moto 360 content coming out quickly from us. One of the more interesting things that Motorola stated during this “interview” was about the MotoACTV. Obviously the Moto 360 isn’t their first wearable, we all know they made the MotoACTV a few years ago. But what was interesting is that Motorola learned a lot about power consumption from the MotoACTV which they put into the Moto X. Then they also said that they learned a lot about power consumption which they’ve added into the Moto 360.

So basically, what we’re saying here is that you probably won’t need to worry about the battery life on the Moto 360. As we’ve seen from the DROID Razr Maxx, DROID Razr Maxx HD, DROID Maxx and the Moto X, Motorola definitely knows their battery tech which is a great thing.

Additionally, what Motorola has stated as far as compatibility goes, we’re looking at Moto 360 being compatible with all Android devices running Android 4.3 and up. I’d venture to guess that this is due to the Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy that is in Android 4.3 and up. So that basically tells us that it’s connecting to your device using Bluetooth, which we’re fine with. Much better than needing a separate data plan for your watch.

We’re learning more and more about the Moto 360 right now, so we’ll post more and more as we learn more. Right now the Moto 360 is definitely a popular topic, not just because it’s using Android Wear, but because it’s a round watch that looks amazing. How many of you are throwing your money at Motorola right now for the Moto 360? Let us know in the comments down below.
