Moto fans, the wait is finally over. Motorola has launched the much-awaited second-generation version of its Moto 360 smartwatch in India with prices starting at Rs 19,999. The smartwatch will be available starting today at 7.30 pm IST on Myntra and Flipkart websites.
Moto-360 (second-generation) was unveiled at IFA in Berlin in early September. The new Moto 360 smartwatch, from Lenovo-owned Motorola, comes in three variants: A men’s watch in two sizes, a women’s version and a sports model called Moto 360 Sport.
The men’s model comes in 42×11.4mm and 46×11.4mm sizes. The women’s version is 42mm. The 42mm Moto 360 comes with a 1.37-inch (360×325-pixel resolution) display, while the bigger 46mm model has a 1.56-inch (360×330-pixel resolution) display. Visually, Moto 360 still sports a round display as last year’s model. Users can customise Moto 360 using Motorola’s Moto Maker design studio. “Customize your Moto 360 to your exact specifications —- multiple case sizes, finishes, bezels, and bands—using Moto Maker, our online design studio,” says the company on its blogpost.
Specs include a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400, 512MB of RAM, 300mAh battery and 4GB of internal storage. The new Moto 360 models support wireless charging and packs accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope and vibration/haptics engine.
For connectivity there’s Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g. Similar to many recent Android Wear watches, Moto 360 second-gen too supports ambient display capability with the watch display switching to a power efficient black and white mode with minimal information, when you’re not actively looking at it.
Early last month, Apple launched its much-awaited Watch range in the country. Apple Watch is officially available for sale through Apple’s retail channels across the country. The smartwatch – in Gold, Rose Gold, Space Gray, Silver Anodized Aluminium; polished Silver or Space Black stainless steel, and 18-Carat Rose Gold and Yellow Gold – was launched seven months after its launch in many countries.
Apple Watch comes in 40 combinations in two case sizes of 38mm and 42mm across three collections of Sport, Edition, and the regular. Besides the case, the box includes a band or strap, both of which come in different material and colour combinations.
