It will be compatible with devices running on Android 4.3 and later like all the Android Wear devices out there. Heart rate, ambient light sensors and a pedomter for the device also seem to be confirmed.
Coming towards the design specifications of the Moto 360, the device 1.8 x 1.8 x 0.4 inches for height, width and depth. It will come with a plastic back case, a stainless steel design with the leather strap.It will also be waterproof for up to 30 minutes under a depth of 3 feet.
