A few Android Wear smartwatches have been released lately, and we decided to take a look inside the Moto 360 from Motorola. As usual with the small, water resistant devices we’ve been taking apart lately, the Moto 360 uses adhesives, flex PCB connectors, and other methods to keep the product compact, so some creativity is necessary to find your way inside. We took inspiration from iFixit’s Moto 360 teardown but did not take care to be able to put it back together. Read more for photos and datasheets for the chips we could identify!
