Last year, Motorola’s iconic Moto 360 smartwatch running on Wear OS made a comeback, but it was manufactured by one of Motorola’s partners – eBuyNow. And it looks like the two companies are extending their partnership by bringing three more Moto-branded smartwatches later this year.
In a presentation showing off the roadmap of future devices, we can see a Moto G smartwatch scheduled for a June release and as the name implies, we are probably looking at a budget device. A circular design is at hand with two physical buttons to the side.
If all goes as planned, we should see a Moto Watch and Moto One appear a month later. The Watch will adopt an Apple Watch-like design, while the One will likely be the premium offering.
There’s also a mysterious 3D-rendered Moto smartwatch in the investor’s presentation that doesn’t look like any of the wearables pictured above but strikes a resemblance to the 360. It has a transparent chassis on the back, letting you have a peek at the charging coil and some of the components inside.
In any case, since the maker has listed Qualcomm as one of its strategic partners, it’s likely that the more expensive Moto watches will employ the Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform with at least 1GB of RAM while the Snapdragon 3100 will be used for the more budget offerings. All will be running WearOS, of course.
