A new Moto 360 is finally coming, but it’s not from Motorola
The original Moto 360 smartwatch was launched way back in 2014 and it was one of the very first devices with Android Wear. Of the few options at the time, the Moto 360 was widely considered the most attractive (despite the “flat tire” display). Motorola followed it up with a second-generation in 2015, but since then the company has dropped out of the wearable game. A new Moto 360 is finally coming, but not from where you’d expect.
Completely out of left field, a new Moto 360 has been announced and is launching in December. This device, however, is not being made by Motorola or Lenovo. A company called eBuyNow has licensed the Moto 360 brand from Motorola. It looks like what you might expect a third-generation Moto 360 to look like, but it really has no connection to the previous models.
Physically, the Moto 360 third-generation weighs 52g and has a 42mm body that takes 20mm bands. There are two buttons on the right side: the top rotates and the bottom can be customized. It will come in silver, gold, and black finishes. Each watch comes with two bands: leather and rubber. That’s good because this is a pretty expensive Wear OS device. You can pre-order the Moto 360 third-generation in November for $349 and it will ship in December.
