The circular smart watch will try its luck with a third generation, although this time it will not be manufactured by Motorola, but by an external company.
The Moto 360 is back, although not thanks to Motorola
When Motorola ventured into the field of smart watches, the Moto 360 looked like a great success. Unfortunately, this was not the case, and the company ended up withdrawing from the market after a second unattractive attempt. Apparently the Moto 360 is looking for a third chance, although this time away from Lenovo’s control.
The circular smartwatch has been retaken by an external company called eBuyNow, who seems to have the rights to produce and market the Moto 360. This is very similar to what we see with HMD Global and the Nokia brand, although unlike the Finnish company, Little is known about eBuy Now.
The new Moto 360 maintains the characteristic design and features a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. In terms of connectivity we have Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi b / g / n, NFC and GPS smartwatch. Everything operates under Wear OS thanks to a 355 mAh battery with support for fast charging and is compatible with iOS and Android devices.
The circular cover has a 1.2-inch (390 x 390 px) AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass 3 coating and is water resistant. The body of the Moto 360 measures 42.8 mm and is compatible with 20 mm straps. It is offered in pink, gray and black gold colors, each with interchangeable silicone and leather straps.
The Moto 360 will be available from December 12 in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. The suggested price is $ 350 and those interested can book it from November 12. So far it is unknown if the smartwatch will arrive in Spain or Latin America.
