Manila, Philippines, August 3, 2016: Today’s connected world is a paradox: people want up-to-the-minute information feed but also don’t want too many distractions. Designed to streamline mobile life, the Moto 360 2nd Gen smartwatch perfectly understands this paradox and delivers the updates that matter, and comes in stylish fashion and sports lines.
“We are pleased to roll out in the country the Moto 360 2nd Gen smartwatch, promising to simplify our lives amidst a world full of distractions. It raises the bar in smartwatch design, craftsmanship and style. But more importantly, it allows users to prioritize what they truly need without missing out on the daily bliss of life with its full suite of useful functions,” said Dino Romano, Country Manager for Lenovo Smartphone, Philippines.
Wi-Fi enabled and featuring Live Dials, Moto 360 gives updates at a glance
The beauty of wearable devices is maximized in the new iteration of the Moto 360. When the first series of Moto 360 was launched, it wowed the world as the first smartwatch that actually looked like a stylish watch. The second generation not only oozes a more premium watch design, it gives wearers complete control of the phone functions right from the wrist.
No need to constantly grab their phones from their pocket or purse, wearers of the new Moto 360 can get notifications, read Gmail messages and calendar invites as easily as if they’re just glancing at the time. They can also conveniently respond to messages hands-free through voice command. It is powered by Android Wear™ and is Wi-Fi enabled so users can keep connected even if their phone is out of Bluetooth range.
Diving right in to the most used apps has been made easier, too, with the new Moto 360 exclusive Live Dials providing shortcuts right on the watch face. Music is always within reach with this smartwatch, as it allows users to sync their favorite playlists and podcasts from Google Play Music right to their Moto 360. They can also scan their flight’s boarding pass with the Fly Delta app.
Classically premium design for all
Taking further inspiration from the traditional watch world, Moto 360 comes in three different case sizes to fit different wrist sizes and features lugs specifically tailored for men and women. The case is precision-crafted from aircraft-grade stainless steel. Sleek and sophisticated, it combines edge-to-edge glass and an exceptionally thin, polished bezel to give the largest viewing area.
For fitness enthusiasts, the Moto 360 Sport comes in 45mm design. Men can choose between the 42mm model with Black Leather and its larger brother, the 46mm variant in Cognac Leather. Women, on the other hand, can wear the 42mm Moto 360 in one of the trendiest colors right now, the Rose Gold. These smartwatches sport the world-renowned Chicago-based Horween® leather band.
Moreover, users have the freedom to choose from a wide variety of watch faces just by a long press anywhere on the screen. Users can go for a classic watch face or more intricate designs among the 20 watch faces available in the Moto 360.
Holistic fitness experience with Moto Body
The new Moto 360 also features Moto Body, a holistic experience that helps the smartwatch wearer lead a healthier lifestyle. The sports variant comes with GPS to track speed, distance and pace while the users work out. It is also designed to give the training information without bringing a smartphone when jogging or running. Plus, the watch features incredibly accurate sensors, so it can track the calories burned, heart rate and so much more.
The Motorola’s AnyLight hybrid display makes it easy to use the watch in any environment – indoors or out. Users can receive spontaneous coaching throughout the day to keep them informed, up to date, and inspired to maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Quad-core processor in a highly sophisticated package
The new Moto 360 runs with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 with 1.2 GHz quad-core processor. The 42mm variant is powered by 300mAh battery and it can run up to 1.5 days. The bigger 46mm model houses a 400mAh battery that can last up to two days when fully-charged. It is charged through a wireless charging inductive.
