Motorola’s upcoming Android Wear smartwatch, the Moto 360 is supposed to be launched late this summer. It is the only smartwatch to have a round watch face and according to a video released by TechCrunch, it will have an ambient light sensor in the little black bar at the bottom along with the display drivers.
No other Android Wear device has this ambient light display which will adjust the brightness of the display automatically according to the surrounding lighting conditions. This would save some battery usage of the device. Both the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live do not have such an ambient light sensor and the users have to adjust the brightness manually.
The Moto 360 was showcased in the Google’s I/O last month and it was known that the black bar at the bottom of the smartwatch contains display drivers. However, little else about the watch is known apart from the fact that it could be charged wirelessly.
It turns out that Darrell Etherington of TechCrunch had a chat about the Moto 360 with Motorola’s Cathay Bi at the I/O itself where she showed the working of the device and told him about the presence of the ambient light sensor in the smartwatch (at the1.55 mark in the video).

At the moment, the Motorola Moto 360 seems to be a little more advanced as compared to its other Android Wear counterparts and is expected to provide a tough competition to them.
