Alongside the launch of the new Moto X, Moto G, and the company’s first smartwatch, the Moto 360, Motorola has released its new “smart” accessories which would work in tandem with the company’s new smartphones — the Motorola Moto Hint and Moto Power Pack Micro.
Remember when Motorola made its announcement with an invite card GIF with an illustration of an ear next to a Bluetooth headset? That appears to be the new Moto Hint, a Bluetooth headset that is designed to work with the Moto X. The Moto Hint comes in a rather small package for a Bluetooth headset, which allows for a discreet positioning in your ear while not being overly intrusive like many Bluetooth headsets are today. Ambiguity aside, it actually looks fashionable as it comes in six different styles from wooden gain to leather pattern designs.
The Moto Hint intelligently knows when it is being inserted in your ear and will power off as you take it off. Similar to the Moto X, it has an always-on voice recognition engine to activate Google Now. With only three hours of battery capacity, it would certainly needs to be charged on the go. With that, Motorola will be including a charging case that users can pop the Moto Hint in for an extra seven hours of battery life.
On the other hand, Motorola has also released its new power bank named Moto Power Pack Micro, which has a 1,500mAh battery that doubles as a keychain, but it doesn’t stop there. It is designed to also be a tracking device for up to 30 metres that works with your phone. Whenever a set of keys are lost, users can open an app on the smartphone and activate a loud beeping noise which will lead them to their keys. Additionally, it works the other way around as users can also track their lost smartphone by activating the beeping noise on your phone from the Moto Power Pack Micro.
Sales for the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360, may have already began, however, both the Moto Hint and the Moto Power Pack Micro will only be available later this year and it will cost $149.00, and $39.99 respectively.
