What is it?
This is the second generation Moto360 which in my opinion was the best smartwatch out there. 

What new?
  • The Moto360 now comes in multiple sizes 42mm and 46mm
  • It now runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 w/ 1.2GHz quad-core cpu | Adreno 305 GPU
  • You no longer need a Jeweler if you want to change the bands. 
  • Fully Customization via Moto Maker. 
  • New Sport Model 

" The original Moto 360 was the first smartwatch that actually looked like a watch. With the second generation, we’ve refined the classic and timeless design and created a watch collection specifically designed for men, women and fitness enthusiasts. Taking further inspiration from the traditional watch world, Moto 360’s case design now features lugs specifically tailored for men and women, and polished bezels in new styles. With new quick-release bands, you can easily swap between leather and metal bands in seconds to match your look for the day." - Motorola

I have mixed feelings about the whole smartwatch ordeal. I love the improvements that they have made to the Moto360 but i cant help but think that yearly updates to the hardware may turn me and other users off from the platform. When you buy a watch especially one for $200+ you aren't likely to buy a newer model of the same watch every year so why would you for a smartwatch? Right now I think i will hold off on upgrading my Moto360 but, I am really interested in the Moto360 Sport.
