A year after the first generation took the smartwatch world by storm with its timeless looks, it is time for the new Moto 360 to step up to the plate. The new iteration of Motorola's acclaimed Android Wear device arrives on the market with revamped design, highly customizable body in two sizes, a version designed for ladies, and a brand new Sport model.
Of course, in addition to new looks and levels of customizability, the new Moto 360 also features improved hardware over the first generation. The newcomer packs a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 solution, sharper display, and bigger battery. Take a look at its key features below.
The standard for the segment Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC found in the new Moto 360 promises speedier performance and faster firmware updates than in the outgoing model. The latter features a TI OMAP 3 chipset.
This year's Moto 360 is now fully customizable in Moto Maker too - users can choose from roughly 300 possible combinations of size, metal finish, body textures and accents, and wristband. This particular feature will be a key for the new smartwatch, as no competitor comes close to offering such levels of personalization.
Sharper display is a welcome sight too. Once again it is not completely circular, though Motorola officials pointed that this setup is what allows the Moto 360 to feature ultra-thin bezels and bigger battery.
