The company has already accepted pre-orders in most of the western countries. Stayed tuned for more updates since the launch of the smartwatch is scheduled for tomorrow.

Earlier: Sep 3, 2015 – Motorola on a surprise note unveiled its collection of smartwatches at the IFA Expo in Berlin. It was not until next week that the launched was expected, but company stunned the enthusiasts with the launch of new Moto 360 on the first day of the IFA week.

Pricing for these new Moto 360s ranges from $299.99 to $429.99 while the company hasn’t revealed the price for the sport variant.

The wearable is said to pack upgraded specifications such as Snapdragon 400 chipset, and a special LCD display that is readable in direct sunlight. Yes, that’s correct, the company hasn’t moved on to the OLED display such as many smartwatch makers are using on their models. It is said that OLED displays are more efficient and have good legibility under sunlight. But let’s hope Motorola found its perfect LCD display this time.

The Moto 360s would be coming in two different sizes, 46mm and 42mm for men’s version. And the company is claiming the two day’s battery for large dial model while one and a half day for the smaller model.

Moreover, with Moto Maker service, Company said that there are up to 300 unique looks you’ll be able to make with a combination of bands, colors, bezels, and sizes in all mix.

The Moto 360 sport would be coming with a fixed silicone strap as well as that special LCD display to read under direct sunlight. It is based on the 42mm size watch, although it’s bulkier than the standard watch. It is said to track distance and map your runs, as it comes with the GPS functionality.
