Motorola gave us a glimpse of its new smartwatch called the 3rd-generation Moto 360 back in October. However, it was a full-fledged introduction of the smartwatch but lacking drum rolls. Motorola kept the announcement really simple and unveiled the watch and now we are seeing it getting available for pre-orders as well.
This 3rd-gen Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch is not produced by Motorola, rather a company by the name eBuyNow has produced it who is a licensee of Moto 360 branding as well.
The new Moto 360 smartwatch has a round stainless steel casing design and stylish color finishes. It has a 1.2-inch circular AMOLED full-color display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is an always-on display and you need not tilt or press a button to activate the screen. The watch also sports a stainless-steel curved case, rotating crown, and a customizable action button. All three colors have a trendy leather and sporty silicone strap.
The Moto 360 smartwatch features a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform, 8GB storage, and 1GB RAM. With the power of Wear OS from Google, the Moto 360 gives you access to Google’s library of apps. It includes apps like WhatsApp, Spotify, Pandora, and Strava. Also, it can monitor your health and track fitness goals with apps like Google Fit, Runtastic, and Lifesum. It comes with Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 5 (802.11n) support and has a built-in GPS and other sensors.
The Moto 360 is also water-resistant up to 3 ATM (30 meters), so it can be used during rains. It comes with a 355mAH battery for all-day power and it takes 60 minutes for the watch to get charged from 0 to 100%.
The Moto 360 comes in Rose Gold Stainless Steel Case, Steel Grey Stainless Steel Case, and Phantom Black Stainless Steel Case. It is priced at $349.99. Pre-orders are currently live in the US. You can head over to the official site to get a pre-order one. The shipping of the watch will start on January 10th.
