The Moto 360 in the picture above appears to be charged via a wireless charging dock.

Little is known about the hardware of the Moto 360, but is is certain that Motorola has filed a “Motorola Wireless Charger” with the FCC.

The charger utilizes the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) protocol, otherwise known as Qi.

It is likely that the dock in Mister Gadget’s photo is the Qi wireless charger that Motorola has gotten FCC approval for.

Mister Gadget also claims that the Moto 360 will last for more than 48 hours on a single charge, and has an IP67 certification, which makes it water and dust resistant.

The smartwatch is also speculated to have an optical heart rate sensor and pedometer functions.

The Moto 360 is also rumored to have a plastic body, has a 1.88-inch screen, and is 13.5mm thick.

Like Samsung and LG’s “wearables,” the Moto 360 will run on Android Wear OS.

Motorola has only confirmed that the Moto 360 uses Android Wear though, and all other specifications listed above remain speculation.

The watch is supposedly slated for a summer 2014 release.

Motorola has not announced an official launch date at present.
