Motorola has retained much of the design language on its new Moto 360, and unfortunately the “flat tire” is still there. There is however one visible change and that is the position of the physical button. Instead of the 3 o’ clock position on the first-generation smartwatch, the button on the new Moto 360 is at the 2 o’ clock position. Like the Apple Watch, the new Moto 360 too is available in two sizes — 46mm and 42mm. Also Read - Best camera phones under Rs 10,000 in June: Moto G10 Power, Redmi 9 Prime and more
Motorola is also offering users a range of customization options, and the presence of traditional lug mounts makes it easier to swap watch straps. The company has also made the Moto 360 a part of Moto Maker, which opens the watch to a whole range of customization options.

Moto 360 specifications: The 46mm variant features a 1.55-inch display, and a 375mAh battery, which the company claims is good enough for two days. The 42mm, on the other hand, features a 1.37-inch display with a 270mAh battery, which is said to be good enough for a day and half.
Under the hood is a Snapdragon 400 processor. On the software front, the smartwatch runs on the latest Android Wear, which is compatible with iOS devices as well.
Motorola also unveiled a variant targeted at sports enthusiasts, called the Moto 360 Sport. This edition features a rubber body with built-in GPS, heart rate sensor, and an AnyLight Display, which is legible under bright sunlight as well.
Moto 360 prices: The new Moto 360 is priced at $300- Rs 19,856 (approximately) for the 42mm variant, and $430- Rs 28,460 (approximately) for the 46mm variant. Motorola hasn’t revealed the details of the Moto 360 Sport, keeping it for a later date.
