New Moto smartwatches coming soon
Moto smartwatches are preparing for their comeback and this time they will not appeal to any nostalgia for Moto 360. As WatchSmarty and 9to5Google noted, a presentation by CE Brands (which runs eBuyNow) notably revealed the launch in the current of this year 2021 of three new models of Moto connected watches. Among them, a model that seems to descend directly from the Moto 360.
including one in rectangular format, Apple Watch style
The first model, which is currently slated for June, is inspired by the Moto G. The only leaked slide reveals no specification of these devices but this Moto G could make a perfect entry-level device. , with a circular dial, simple, without rotating crown. Things get more interesting in July. In addition to a more evolved circular model like One, a Moto Watch could move to a rectangular format not without recalling the very popular Apple Watch -, marking a real separation from the habits of the brand.
All of these devices should run Wear OS and should have recent chips on the market like the Snapdragon Wear 4100 as CE Brands and eBuyNow tout their partnership with Qualcomm on “premium wearable devices”.
The new Moto watches aren’t guaranteed to match expectations. If they succeed, though, they could offer serious competition to larger Wear OS watch makers like Mobvoi (of TicWatch fame) and Fossil. The Wear OS smartwatch market is still relatively small compared to what Apple and Samsung offer, and that provides opportunities for relative newcomers to thrive.
