There’s no shortage of smartwatches to choose from these days. But it’s hard to find the one that matches your expectations. eBuyNow, a Motorola brand licensee, is all set to introduce not one but three new Moto-branded smartwatches in 2021. According to Twitter user Felipe Berhau, eBuyNow will be soon releasing these Motorola-branded smartwatches: Moto Watch, Moto Watch One and Moto G Smartwatch.
A few images appearing in Twitter shows the design of the watches. The Moto Watch One and the Moto G Smartwatch are likely to come with a circular build, similar to that of the Moto 360 smartwatch. In contrast, the Moto Watch appears to come in a square-shaped design. The watches are expected to run on Google’s Wear OS and powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor.
The image that shows the potential watch was found in an investor presentation alongside three other smartwatches. The image reportedly also shows a wireless charging coil, reports TheVerge.
According to Reddit user TheMacJezza, one of the images used in the presentation just barely shows some hardware details for one of the new Motorola watches (seemingly the Moto Watch One, based on the lug design). The back of one of the watches says 5ATM (water resistance), GPS, NFC, and most importantly, Snapdragon Wear 4100.
If the new Moto watches succeed to take off, they could offer serious competition to larger Wear OS watchmakers like Mobvoi and Fossil. Compared to what Apple and Samsung offer, the Wear OS smartwatch market is still relatively small. This will give any newcomer to thrive in this market.
Motorola stopped making Moto-branded smartwatches. The name was licensed to a company called eBuyNow, which released the third-generation Moto 360 in 2019.
