Motorola has a solid, though shaky, track record with smartwatches. The initial Moto 360 was released in 2014, and while it hasn’t aged as well as good wine, it has served as a model for many subsequent smartwatches. It helped promote round screens over square ones, despite its iconic flat tire bottom bezel. In 2015, Motorola released a second-generation gadget before licensing the Moto 360 name to a new eBuyNow for the 2019 iteration. We’ve been anticipating some new Moto-branded smartwatches from the business, and the Moto Smartwatch 100 is the first to hit the market.
According to previous reports, Motorola will release the Moto watch 100 next year. But it made an unexpected early appearance today. While this may appear to be the same as the Moto 360 smartwatches you’re used to, looks may be misleading. This one, on the other hand, is more analogous to a fitness band. You’re definitely out of luck, at least for now, if you were hoping to see Google’s new Wear OS 3.0 operating system on the new Moto watch. This device uses a proprietary operating system called “Moto OS.” For those of you who were hoping for a suitable successor to the Moto 360, this may be a disappointment.
In terms of hardware, we’re looking at a sporty-looking watch face with a heart rate sensor on the back. The watch incorporates a SpO2 sensor, sleep monitoring, is 5ATM water-resistant, and has a battery life of up to two weeks, according to Motorola. Despite the inexpensive price, the body is composed of aluminum, giving it a little more quality feel.
Pre-orders for the Moto Watch 100 are now open on the Moto Watch website, with a December 10th shipment date. You can get your hands on one for around $100, and it comes in Phantom Black and Glacier Silver hues. Just keep in mind that you won’t be able to run any of your favorite Wear OS apps.
