After a huge amount of leaks over the past few months regarding what exactly Motorola might launch at the IFA 2015, they have finally unveiled the all-new second-generation Moto 360 smartwatch. The new Moto 360 smartwatch collection comes in both men’s and women’s models, and there is also a sports variant that will become available at a later date.
Somewhat similar to its previous smartwatch the regular model comes in both 46 mm and 42 mm options for men, and the women’s line comes in at 42 mm. All variants of the smartwatch will feature a 1.2 GHz QUALCOMM Snapdragon 400 processor, 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage. The 46 mm option comes with a 400 mAh battery and a 1.56 inch LCD display with a 360 x 330 resolution, while both 42 mm variants come with a 1.37 inch LCD display with 360 x 325 resolution. The rest of the specifications for the 42 mm variant is exactly the same as the 46 mm one. Both sizes will be covered by Gorilla Glass 3.
A few welcome design changes by Motorola have been added this time around. For example, Motorola has added traditional lugs which will let you change out your watch band much easier than on the previous Moto 360. The power button has also been moved from the 3 o’clock position on the last year’s model to a 2 o’clock position. The Moto 360 Sport variant (see feature image) it features GPS, silicon band and an AnyLight display that will allow for easier reading in both light and dark situations.
As it goes for all Motorola devices you do get the option of customizing the new Moto 360 via Moto Maker, which gives you the ability to choose from different bands, colours and sizes. You get a ton of different colour options to choose from including black, gold, silver and Rose gold for the women’s variant. You can also choose from various straps for the Moto 360 like leather, stainless steel and an exclusive rose gold strap for the women’s variant.
The non-sport variants of the Moto 360 will be available for pre-order starting today from the Google store, Motorola.com and Best Buy. Prices range from about $299 to $429 depending on which type of watch band you select.
