Now that everything is official, it’s time to pre-order! Both the Moto X Pure Edition and Moto 360 (2nd gen) will be available starting today for order through Moto Maker. Orders should ship later in the month.
By now, you should have read the announcement from Motorola about the new Moto 360 (2nd gen). The follow-up to the most popular Android Wear watch is now official and up for pre-order starting today at $299. Oh, we took it for a spin as well, and compared it to the original Moto 360 in case you were looking for all the info you need in order to consider buying one.
If that wasn’t enough, below we have assembled the full specs for the new watch and all of its variants. You will see the differences in sizes, battery capacities depending on those sizes, the newer processor used this time around, and more.
Enough with the leaks, already – it’s now official. Motorola has announced the new Moto 360 (2nd gen) collection, which includes both men’s and women’s lines, along with a new Moto 360 Sport model that is coming later on down the road.
What’s new this time around? Well, you get two sizes of watches to choose from with the regular non-Sport Moto 360. There are 46mm and 42mm options for men, with the women’s collection also carrying that 42mm size. The new Moto 360s have more battery life (up to 2 days), design tweaks (lugs added), quick-release watch bands, a more powerful health experience, and something like 400 combinations of options through Moto Maker.

You have a super difficult decision to make over the next few days, assuming you are at all interested in buying a smartwatch. The Huawei Watch is looking all sorts of promising, even with its massive price tag, but now you also have the new Moto 360 (2nd gen) to consider. Not only that, but there are multiple Moto 360 sizes to choose from, along with up to 400 combinations of bands, colors, and other options through Moto Maker. Seriously, this is a tough call.
To hopefully help get you on the right path, we spent some time with the new Moto 360 (2nd gen) and captured our first impressions on video. Below, you will see each size, a couple of the configurations, and also a whole bunch of images of the device on wrist and with different finishes that are new to Moto Maker.
Here are the full specs as well.
Let’s go! (more…)
Today’s semi-surprise announcement from Motorola was the new sport version of the Moto 360, dubbed Moto 360 Sport. As the name suggests, this is a Moto 360 made for fitness fanatics who want a watch that doesn’t need to be paired at all times with their phone. This is a watch that can be taken for a run and sweat on, yet still manage to track every single step and stay clean, thanks to built-in GPS and its specially made silicon band. (more…)
We’ll have much more time for full comparisons later, but since we spent some time with the new Moto 360 (2nd gen), we thought we should at least show you how it compares to last year’s original Moto 360.
There aren’t a ton of differences, but Motorola did upgrade this new watch in a number of ways over the original release. For one, the watch body now has lugs. Whether you like the look of them or not, Motorola says that this allowed them to increase battery size and also make it easier to switch watch bands. And that’s true, the battery has increased from 310mAh to 400mAh in the 46mm model. They also added a new quickrelease switch to watch bands, making them much easier to swap out. (more…)
If the Moto 360 (2nd gen) and smartwatches aren’t really your thing and you would rather talk phones, then this post is for you. We spent some extra time with the Moto X Pure Edition this week, just before pre-orders kick off later today. We didn’t learn anything new necessarily, only that this phone needs to get here now. (more…)
During Motorola’s launch event for the Moto X Pure Edition, Style, Play, and G (3rd gen), the company told us to expect even more phone options later on in the year. We assumed they meant new DROID phones (like the DROID MAXX 2) would arrive, but leaker @upleaks may have revealed another to be on the lookout for. (more…)
