Posted on the 30 October 2019 by Anees @ZulfiqarAAnees

The smartwatch corresponds to the third generation of one of the first ‘smartwatches’ with Android, although now it is not manufactured by Motorola. The Moto 360 smartwatch will have a third-generation that will go on sale in December with a price of US $350.

But Motorola, the creator of the first two generations of this watch, will not be the one that manufactures the new model, but eBuyNow, a company focused on electronic commerce that would have bought – or licensed – the brand from Motorola.

The new Moto 360 smartwatch has the Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor, although there is evidence of a new version, the Snapdragon Wear 3300, according to the reliable XDA Developers site. The new watch would also have a second processor for low consumption tasks; It will have 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

The watch will be available in presale from November on the moto360.com page and will begin delivery from December. The price of US $350, although it may sound high to pay for an Android smartwatch, includes two straps, one leather, and one silicone.

Motorola was one of the first companies to jump into the arena of smartwatches but was losing presence in that market to other manufacturers, including Apple (the current leader), Huawei, Xiaomi, and Samsung. Motorola stopped the direct production of watches with the second generation of the Moto 360, and it seems that for the third generation, it has chosen to assign the license before doing it at home.

Motorola Moto 360 Sport

In general, the Moto 360 Sport is a good smartwatch, but its sporting approach is limited by functions, and the use of GPS makes the battery last much less than that of watches specialized in physical activity.
