China-based Lenovo, which bought the Motorola phone business from Google in 2014, has launched the Moto 360 (2nd Gen) smartwatch in Malaysia.
Available globally since late last year, the second generation 2015 version of the Moto 360 comes in Classic and Sport Edition.
Moto 360’s case design now features lugs specifically tailored for men and women, and polished bezels in new styles. With new quick-release bands, users can easily swap between leather and metal bands in seconds. The Moto 360 (2nd Gen) watch case come in different sizes. Women can get a 42mm case for a sleeker & more elegant look while men can opt for the 46mm version.
On the other hand, the new Moto 360 Sport edition is designed to give the training information users need without having to bring their phone on a run. Moto 360 features on-board GPS to track speed, distance and pace. It also features Motorola’s AnyLight hybrid display, a new technology that makes it easy to use the watch indoors or out; an LCD display that combines a traditional backlit transmissive screen with a front lit reflective technology.
