Motorola unveils second gen Moto 360's

Motorola's Moto 360 is the most popular Android Wear device to date , the watch , designed in a round (flat tire) design made it a instant as rival products went on a squarish design philosophy which didn't appeal well to the masses . Although Android wear is still a bit "small" in comparison , the market is expected to grow as Android Wear is slowly pushed to potential iOS users who are keen to try new hardware . Although Motorola enjoyed success with the 360 , the outdated specs and the somewhat plain design needed some drastic change and So Motorola has unveiled not one , but two Moto 360 smartwatches today

As the name suggests , this is basically the "regular" Moto 360 -stepped up for 2015 .The new watch which is now available in 42mm and 46mm face sizes ,still retains much of the old Motorola DNA from last year -including the flat tire bezel up front . Hardware specs including processor and display information is still not available , but so far we managed to find out that the new watch(es) feature a 275mAh battery for the 42mm version and 375mAh battery for the 46mm version .Pricing for the new models start at $299 (42mm) and prices will run upto $429 for a top of the range model
