What’s the best thing about the new Moto 360 Fashion? Well, it can be worn at formal events, because it can be compared with a traditional watch. This is probably the main thought that Motorola had in mind when it decided to redesign Moto 360.
To be added that the original Moto 360 smartwatch was the first handset that featured a premium stainless steel body and a circular display. This happened in September of 2014. Well, it is September 2015 and Motorola has announced another released, called Moto 360 Fashion.
This new handset will be available in two different sizes, meaning that the first one will be a 46mm watch with a 22mm band, while the second one will be a smaller 42mm device with a 20mm band.
However, the best thing is that the company has also decided to release a special women’s collection model, featuring a 42mm face and slim 16mm strap. Prices for these new models will start at 300 dollars and go up to approximately 440 dollars, depending on the model and the band that costumers will choose. This means that the new model will start at approximately 50 dollars more than the original model.
As for design, the new Moto 360 Fashion looks approximately the same as the previous model. This means that it still has a circular display and even the strange black bar located at the bottom. Moreover, this model can display customized Google Now cards and other notifications that come from the user’s Android and iPhone device.
Probably, the most significant change that users will find on this new handset are given by the traditional watch lugs, which make it easier for them to swap out the strap and replace it with a new one. Moreover, these lugs also make the handset more flexible, meaning that they are more comfortable to wear.
To be added that the crown found on the new Moto 360 Fashion was relocated to the top right, more exactly at two o’clock. However, this isn’t like the digital crown found on other brands, because it doesn’t spin, meaning that users can’t scroll through apps.
This crown is just a simple button that can be used to access the app menu and light up the display. This new handset comes with a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400, 4GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM. Moreover, Moto 360 Fashion has a water-resistant rating of IP67, meaning that it can be used when taking a shower or while washing the dishes, but it can’t be used in the pool.
