The rumoured Motorola Smartwatch, Moto Watch 100, gets official, and for a change, the company waives Wear OS and starts the software journey by launching the company’s first smartwatch that runs on a brand new in-house Moto OS. The surprising change in the operating system will help the smartwatch increase its battery life and deliver up to 14 days of battery life on a single charge, which is far ahead of what Wear OS can provide.
The newly launched Moto OS is claimed to be focused on health as it features preloaded 26 sport modes, including SPO2 tracking, a heart rate monitor, accelerometer and gyroscope, which helps the watch provide fitness results with detailed stats and data. The Moto Watch 100 also track the results of activities and games like basketball, badminton, bike indoor, cricket, snowboard, tennis, and yoga, among others.
The Moto Watch 100 features a 1.3-inch circular LCD display with a 360 x 360 pixels resolution and an always-on mode, which is a surprise package. The Moto Watch 100 is 5ATM water-resistant and supports Bluetooth 5.0. The watch comes with a 355mAh battery that takes about an hour to charge fully. It also supports features like GPS, BeiDou, and GLONASS for better navigation and connectivity.
The 45.8g smartwatch is packed in an aluminium casing and measures 42x46x11.9mm. The case of the Moto Watch 100 will be available in two colour variants, Glacier Silver and Phantom Black. Along with the stylish cases, the watch also offers replaceable 20mm straps with various colour options. The smartwatch is compatible with devices running on at least Android 5.0 or iOS 10.0.
Price & Availability
The Moto Watch 100 is listed on the Motorola US website with a price tag of $99.99 (approx. ₹7500) and is available for pre-orders in the US market only. The availability of the watch in other countries and regions, including India, is not yet confirmed, but we expect the company will soon launch the Moto Watch 100 in several other locations outside the US.
