The last we heard of the Moto 360 smartwatch was all the way back in 2016. There appears to be a new one that’s on the horizon, but oddly enough it’s not being made by Motorola.
In fact, the production of the upcoming Moto 360 is licensed to another company, the same way Nokia is licensed to HMD Global. The licensee, though, may not be a name that many are familiar with. It’s called eBuyNow, and the company claims over 15 years of working with major brands.
As for the smartwatch itself, it will come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It will also have a 1.2-inch 390 x 390 always-on AMOLED display, and will run Google’s WearOS. For swimmers, it also comes with a 3ATM water resistance rating
Its 355mAh battery is also claimed to be able to give the smartwatch all-day battery life. When it gets low enough, it automatically engages Battery Saver Mode that allows it to continue displaying the time for three more days.
The Moto 360 will be available for pre-order starting 12 November, for a price of US$349.99 (~RM1465). That said, the website only lists the US, Canada and the UK. It remains to be seen if the smartwatch will be made available in other markets once it officially launches.
