Motorola’s latest smartwatch is finally here. Lenovo Malaysia has started selling the Moto 360 2nd gen exclusively on Lazada with a starting price of RM1,399. Powered by Android Wear, it has access to a wide variety of apps and it will work for both Android and iPhone smartphones.
There are 3 options available for Malaysia. The 42mm version in Black with a matching black leather strap is priced at RM1,399 followed by a Rose Gold 42mm version that comes with Brush Leather at RM1,499. The larger 46mm version is priced at RM1,599 and it gets a silver watch case and a cognac leather strap.
The Moto 360 features a durable 316L stainless steel case and the front is toughen with Gorilla Glass 3. Display wise, the 46mm unit gets a 1.56″ display that does 360×330, while the 42mm model gets a smaller 1.37″ display that pushes 360×325 resolution. Like the first moto 360, it isn’t a full circular display as there’s a “flat-tire” on the bottom of the screen. Apparently this “flaw” was necessary to make the bezels smaller. The Moto 360 connects via Bluetooth and Wifi and it also gets a heart rate sensor, IP67 water/dust resistance and a dedicated button on the right which mimics a crown.
The price is similar to Samsung’s Gear S2 smartwatch that’s priced between RM1,399-RM1,599. If you prefer Android Wear, the Huawei Watch can be a better alternative with its full circular display that does a higher 400×400 pixels resolution. The Huawei Watch is priced between RM1,799-RM1,999 in Malaysia.
