Motorola has silently launched its newest smartwatch named Moto Watch 100. It is the same wearable that surfaced in recent leaks. It is the first wearable launch by the company since it debuted the Moto 360 in 2019 but is not exactly a successor. The main highlight of the smartwatch is that is easier on the pocket and does not run Google's Wear OS.
The Moto Watch 100 sports a 1.3-inch LCD circular display which is big enough for daily usage. The watch case measures 42mm and is made up of aluminum. It weighs only 45.8 grams that makes it lightweight. The whole package is powered by a 335mAh battery claimed to last for up to two weeks on a single charge. This is the significant battery life for a smartwatch.
In terms of health and fitness features, the smartwatch has support for a total of 26 outdoor and indoor sports modes. It boasts 5ATM water resistance that makes it suitable for swimming sessions. The watch 24/7 heart rate monitor, SpO2 monitor, sleep tracker, stress monitor, step counter, calories burned, and much more. There is obviously a companion app to help you check all the details from your smartphone. It is currently available for Android and the iOS version will release in December.
The smartwatch does not run on Google's Wear OS and instead boots a custom operating system named Moto Watch OS. This seems to be one of the crucial reasons behind such a long battery life claim. This seems like a good choice on paper but we will have to wait for real-world usage to see if it actually is.
The Motorola Moto Watch 100 is priced at $99.99 and is already up for pre-orders. It is available in two color options: Phantom Black and Silver Glacier.
