One of the first smartwatches I ever bought was the Moto 360 when it was released back in 2015. It looked good despite the “flat tire” aesthetic it had on the watch face. I still loved wearing it all the time up until it stopped getting support from Google and Motorola. Now, finally, years later, Motorola, in partnership with eBuyNow, has finally announced a new version of the Moto 360 and it looks even better than the last two generations.
The watch is keeping the same circular design as the previous models and looks like the 2nd generation variant with a new button added on the right side. It comes with a 1.2-inch (390×390) AMOLED display on a 42mm sized watch. As far as internals go, you’re getting 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage which isn’t too bad since smartwatches don’t require much power to operate. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 Platform is also featured on the inside. The battery size is 335mAh and comes with quick charge capabilities that can charge the watch from 0% to 100% in about an hour.
One feature that Moto added to the new smartwatch is making the crown work similar to that on the Apple Watch. The crown will allow you to navigate through menus and other features for easier access. On top of all that, it comes with Always On Display and comes in three different colors, Steel Grey, Rose Gold, and Phantom Black.
Pre-orders will begin in mid-November for the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., while major retailers in the UK will see them in December for about US$350.
