The Moto 360 Wear smartwatch has returned to the market in an all-new avatar. Motorola had exited the smartwatches spaces a few years back, but the Moto 360 name has now been revived by Motorola’s partner, eBuyNow. The new Moto 360 runs on Wear OS and is powered by the Snapdragon 3100 processor. The RAM is 1GB, which means the smartwatch has gotten better in performance. The storage capacity of the Moto 360 is 8GB.

The original Moto 360 was released in 2015. It was a substantial machine at that time with a classy lightweight design. It was among the first smartwatches with the round, fully-touch display. That version of Moto 360 was ill-famed for the “flat tire”, a small black half-moon at the bottom of the spherical watch face. The new Moto 360 has gotten rid of that. The new version has a stainless steel body, rotating crown and a button on the side of the dial. There are three colour choices for the Moto 360 — rose-gold, silver, and black. Silicone and leather strap options are available. The watch has an AMOLED display with an always-on option and a resolution of 390×390 pixels. The Moto 360 survives for three days on a single charge in its battery-saving mode. The battery is fast charging and takes only an hour to get to full charge.

This Wear OS smartwatch has applications like Google Pay and Google Assistant. There are no speakers though, for Google Assistant’s voice response. Moto 360 has built-in GPS . The watch is swim-proof as well. For fitness lovers, the phone has a heart-rate monitor and the GPS can track workouts. Moto 360 is priced at 25,500 INR and they are available for pre-order.
