In a video posted on TechCrunch’s YouTube channel featuring a hands-on with the upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch, a Motorola demonstrator revealed the smartwatch includes an ambient light sensor, a feature yet to be seen on any other Android Wear device. The light sensor could be the key to greater battery life compared to the other Android Wear devices, as it will most likely be used to adjust the display’s brightness depending on the lighting conditions.

Other than the embedded video, there has been no mention of the device having a light sensor and these representatives aren’t always filled with accurate information, but for what it is, the Moto 360 is shaping up to the most well-rounded Wear device on the market.

Skip to the 1:50 mark of the video to hear the demonstrator mention the light sensor.
