For all Motorola fans in India, here’s good news for them. The company is all set to launch the second-generation of its smartwatch Moto 360 in India. The company has sent out invites for a launch event scheduled for December 1.

The invite makes it quite clear that the company will be launching the Moto 360 second-generation. As the image on the invite shows a circular dial and has the hashtag #MotoTimeHack.

Lenovo-owned Motorola unveiled Moto 360 second-generation at IFA in Berlin in early September. The new Moto 360 smartwatch comes in three variants: A men’s watch in two sizes, a women’s version and a sports model called Moto 360 Sport.


The men’s model comes in 42×11.4mm and 46×11.4mm sizes. The women’s version is 42mm. The 42mm Moto 360 comes with a 1.37-inch (360×325-pixel resolution) display, while the bigger 46mm model has a 1.56-inch (360×330-pixel resolution) display.

Visually, Moto 360 still sports a round display as last year’s model. Users can customise Moto 360 using Motorola’s Moto Maker design studio. “Customize your Moto 360 to your exact specifications —- multiple case sizes, finishes, bezels, and bands—using Moto Maker, our online design studio,” says the company on its blogpost.

Specs include a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400, 512MB of RAM, 300mAh battery and 4GB of internal storage. The new Moto 360 models support wireless charging and packs accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope and vibration/haptics engine.

For connectivity there’s Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g. Similar to many recent Android Wear watches, Moto 360 second-gen too supports ambient display capability with the watch display switching to a power efficient black and white mode with minimal information, when you’re not actively looking at it.
