Moto 360 2nd Gen reveal date announced along with leaked hardware specs including Sport model



After a handful of leaks have spilled most of the beans surrounding the Moto 360 (2nd Gen), we’re just sitting here — money in hand — anxiously waiting for Motorola to make the dang watch official. Today even more details have allegedly been revealed, along with an expected unveiling date. @evleaks posted some new product renders of the large version of the watch, complete with all the colors and straps.

As far as when we can expect the watch to be formally unveiled, Lenovo’s Weibo page posted an invite for an event scheduled to take place next Tuesday, September 8th in Shanghai. Although the teaser doesn’t reveal any details about the watch, it does confirm the design we’ve seen leaked online countless times (notice the placement of the physical button). Might want to mark that date on your calendars.

With that out of the way, we can now dive into some of the rumored specs. GizmoChina is reporting that the smartwatch — which will be available in 2 sizes — will feature a 1.55-inch display with 375mAh battery for the regular model, and 1.37-inch display with 270mAh battery for the smaller version. We even got a few new details on the Sport edition, which @Upleaks is saying will feature some kind of hybrid display for improved outdoor visibility, along with 3ATM water resistance, GPS, and barometer.

You’ll notice the Moto 360’s infamous “flat tire” is looking extremely small in the leaked Sport render. We’re not sure if that’s just designer having too much free reign, or if that’s accurate to the real-world model.

In either case, we probably wont have to wait much longer to find out what’s the story behind all these devices. Motorola is definitely planning to go hard in the wearable market with the Moto 360 and given the success of the first model, the competition better watch out. Heh.
