Motorola Unveils New Moto 360 Smartwatch Range; There’s One for Fitness Freaks Too

September 4, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

At the IFA technology show in Berlin, Motorola lifted the wraps off its second gen range of Moto 360 smartwatches.

As it was with its first wave of Moto 360 devices, Motorola has made sure it doesn’t drift away from the style quotient, for which it has now made the device sleeker and more stylish.

The bezel is now more polished, and it appears like Moto 360 has gone more traditional.

The strap mounting is now made easier with the quick release pins that let you swap between straps in quick time.

The bezel is made available in silver, gold, and black colors for men and silver, gold, or a new rose gold color for women and the choice is plenty in the case of straps, including metallic ones.

The hardware has also been slightly altered. The display is the same LED type and has not made the jump to OLED unlike other smartwatches. But it still has got a slightly improved resolution over the previous version.

The processor running inside is Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, which ensures a better overall performance alongside an improved battery life of up to two days.

Other than the standard Moto devices, Motorola is also launching a new Sports edition that’s aimed at the fitness freaks.

The device comes with a silicone strap, and also sports an LCD display that will be easy to view even under direct sunlight.

Besides, it also comes with dedicated GPS chips and heart-rate sensors to track all your fitness activities.

The standard edition will be the one to hit the markets first, for which the pre-orders have already commenced. Shipping is expected to begin within two weeks.

It will be followed by the release of Moto 360 Sports later this year. Motorola has revealed that the pricing would be between $300 and $430, and that the device will be making it to the markets of North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia.
