Second-gen Moto 360-Motorola’s Answer to Competitors

Moto 360 was one of the first Android smartwatches in the market with a round display. Though it was not free of faults, it was a quite popular wrist wearable.

4 GB Storage gives an edge

Along with 512 MB RAM, 4 GB of ample storage gives it a competitive edge over other Android counterparts. Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. In the previous version of Moto 360, the company used the TI processor. The processor was accountable for poor performance and reduced battery life. Taking a corrective action, the company has included a superior quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor in the new timepiece. It makes it more powerful and reliable in terms of performance and battery life.

Extended battery life

For the first time, Motorola comes up with different models for men and women. Its 42 mm model has a battery of 300 mAh capacity that lasts for 1.5 days, and 46 mm model has a 400 mAh capacity battery that lasts for up to 2 days of mixed usage. Inclusion of GPS. Motorola has come forward with a sports version for users with an active lifestyle. It has built-in GPS for tracking both distance and speed. Also, Moto 360 Sport model also boasts about a silicon band with a unique USB coating. The band has ventilation channels as well to facilitate wrist’s movement during the workout.

AnyLight hybrid display

Again, it is Moto 360 Sport’s amazing feature that enables users to view the display in any lighting condition. Users can readily see the display irrespective of remaining inside or outside their houses because of this technology.  The second version of Moto 360 timepiece has an onboard Wi-Fi along with these features. On the downside, the company has continued a “flat tire” cutout at the bottom of the display, which makes the display less appealing as it does not look completely circular. There, Motorola’s rivals including LG, Huawei, and Samsung do well as they give fully circular display without any cutout. Barring this, the company has done the job in making this attractive smartwatch.

In conclusion, we can mention that Motorola gives a strong answer to its competitors through launching the second-generation Moto 360 smartwatch. Its price is said to fall in the range of $299 to $429. However, the company is yet to announce the price for the sports variant.
