The Moto 360 represented one of the first options for smartwatches with interesting features. Unfortunately, over the years, it has not always been met with hoped-for success. Despite this, however, Motorola does not seem to have given up on this market segment. In fact, according to some rumors reported by “Best Buy Canada,” the company is said to be launching a new smartwatch named “Motorcycle Watch 70”.
Moto Watch 70 Without Wear OS
In detail, the site reported the specifications and other details on the new watch: “Achieve your fitness goals with the cutting-edge features of Motorola’s Moto Watch 70. Designed to showcase your active lifestyle, it measures your health, activity level, steps, and other important information so you can monitor your progress. It has 23 sports modes to support all your activities and connects directly to your smartphone to receive convenient notifications”.
As for the technical specifications, the Moto Watch 70 will have a 1.69″ square display and an IP67 water resistance rating.
There will be sensors such as the heart rate monitor, SpO2 measurements, integrated GPS, and other typical sensors dedicated to fitness. The rumors, among other things, refer to support for both Android and iOS, as well as up to 10 days of battery life under typical use and 14 hours of battery life with continuous fitness tracking.
Considering the battery life data, then, one could speculate that the wearable device will not run Wear OS but the company’s proprietary operating system, ie Moto Watch as well as the Moto Watch 100, launched last year with a retail price of $100 in the United States. And speaking of price, the Moto Watch 70 should cost $75, while the timing of the market launch is not yet clear.
