Motorola enjoyed a decent success with the Moto 360. This was largely down to the fact that the Moto 360 was the first round Android Wear smartwatch, in between the LG and Samsung offering, both of which were rectangular. LG did bring out the LG G Watch Urbane, but thanks to a bad pricing and slightly over complicated design, the Motorola Moto 360 continued to rule. The watch is now more than an year old since its announcement and is due an upgrade.

The upgrade is expected to come in the form of Motorola Moto 360 second generation at the upcoming IFA event in Berlin. The watch has been leaked out several times especially on Weibo and we do have a fair idea of what the watch is going to be packing and looking like. However, the official render of the watch was made public on Twitter by the master leakster, @Evleaks recently. The watch looks very similar to the current Moto 360, and has a round dial. However, what has changed is that just like the Apple Watch, the Moto 360 will come in two different dial sizes to cater to people with different sizes of wrist.
It is also interesting to note that the render shows the Moto 360 in both, the metallic and leather variant signalling that Motorola plans to continue with the two models. The physical button too has been moved away from the 3 o’ clock position to a 2 o’ clock position in what is a slight redesign. Other than that, the watch will come with a larger 270 and 300 mAh battery based on the size that you decide to pick up. The watch is expected to be announced at IFA and will go on sale before the end of the year, presumably around the holiday period.
