In recent times, Motorola has focused only on releasing smartphones but recent rumors suggested that the brand is ready to go back to making smartwatches as well. The first product that will mark the brand's return is tipped to be called the Moto Watch 100. A new leak has surfaced that sheds some light on what to expect from the Motorola smartwatch and what it might look like.
The report is from 91Mobiles, an online publication, citing anonymous sources. It shows that the alleged Moto Watch 100 will have a circular dial as we have seen on the Samsung Galaxy wearables. There are two physical buttons on the right side and if you were hoping for something like a rotating bezel, the report makes it clear that it will not be the case. The renders show the smartwatch in the Black color option but we can expect more.
The Moto Watch 100 is tipped to sport a 1.3-inch LCD display with 360 x 360 pixels resolution. The build features an aluminum watch case and a plastic backplate. It is reported to have 42x46x11.9mm dimensions and weigh just 29 grams. The smartwatch will have both Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS connectivity. The latter is important as it will eliminate the need for carrying the smartphone every time you want to go for a run or a walk.
The smartwatch is said to have your usual set of sensors like a heart-rate monitor, SpO2 sensor, sleep tracker, steps counter, gyroscope, accelerometer, and ambient light. There will be a 350mAh battery to keep the lights on but we will have to wait to know the exact battery life. In terms of software, it is unknown whether the Moto Watch 100 will run Google's Wear OS or some other operating system. The pricing details are also missing but Motorola is said to be eying the budget wearable market.
