When we saw the comeback of the nostalgic Moto 360 Wear OS smartwatch, back in 2019, the device was not developed or manufactured by Motorola itself. Instead, a licensing partner called eBuyNow manufactured the new Moto 360. Now, eBuyNow is merging with another company called CE Brands Ltd., and a product roadmap exposes three new Moto-branded smartwatches which include a rectangular Apple Watch-like model, slated to launch later this year probably sometime in June.
The Moto G Smartwatch will come with a circular design, similar to the current Moto 360. The inspiration for this particular name comes from Motorola’s budget G-series smartphones. Hence, it might be a budget smartwatch rather than a premium one. Further, in July, the company plans to release two other smartwatches – the Moto Watch and Moto One. According to reports, the Moto Watch might fall somewhere between the Moto G and the Moto One, which features a square-shaped dial with rounded corners. That makes it look very similar to Apple’s wearable offerings that are pretty popular in the market. The Moto One will be a premium offering from the company as it looks sleeker and more attractive than the other two.
Other than the picture of the devices and approximate launch periods, the slide does not reveal much about them. As a result of which, we do not know much about the specs of the individual models. Everything we know for now is that these devices will run Google’s Wear OS. The slide also says that eBuyNow is “among the earliest stage companies partnered with Qualcomm for premium wearables.” So, there are high chances that the premium Moto smartwatches will feature Snapdragon Wear 4100 and 1GB of RAM under the hood. The budget smartwatch will feature the affordable Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC. The company aims to capitalize on the growing wearables market, with the upcoming launch of the three new Moto-branded smartwatches.
