If you’re looking for a smart watch that’s round, the Moto 360 smart watch is heading to Malaysia. The Android Wear powered device has been spotted in our very own SIRIM database with Brightstar as its distributor.
In the US, it is priced at US$249.99 which is about RM817 if converted directly. So far there’s no official release date for Malaysia yet but you probably be able to get one before the Christmas holidays.
There are few sharp-edged downsides to the Moto 360, and none of them can be found on its round, 1.56-inch LCD display. In fact, Motorola’s enterprising circular screen is so attractive it instantly became the antithesis of the “smartwatches look like a miniaturized cell phone worn on your wrist” argument when Google first announced Android Wear in March.
Moto 360 further draws circles around its competition with an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the LCD brightness. It’s especially convenient when you need a bright screen in sunny conditions or want to reduce battery life consumption in dark environments without having to manually adjust the setting
How it works:
Basically, Moto 360 is just like any other Android Wear smartwatch — it brings all of your smartphone’s notifications to your wrist. All of your new notifications, such as SMSs, WhatsApp messages, emails, updates or alerts by apps etc, come on your wrist as soon as you pair it with an Android 4.3 or 4.4 smartphone.
However, you can go for it only if you are an early adopter
