The market of smartwatches has a new player before the end of 2021. Motorola is the company behind one of the most interesting smartwatches with the Moto Watch 100. The wearable leaves Wear OS behind and brings a brand new Moto OS, which is proprietary software made from scratch. The Moto Watch 100 comes with a bold promise of two weeks battery life.
MOTO WATCH 100 SPECS AND FEATURES
The Moto Watch 100 comes has a case of 42 mm with a 1.3-inch circular LCD display. The device supports Always-On Mode, which makes us think that the LCD spec may be wrongly listed. Other details include SpO2 tracking for detecting the oxygen levels in your blood. It also comes with a heart rate monitor, gyroscope, accelerometer, and a 20 mm strap size for easy changes. In terms of software, we have the proprietary Moto OS that offers up to 26 sports modes.
The device’s case is made from aluminum, and it comes in two colors Glacier Silver and Phantom Black. The watch has a 5 ATM water resistance and supports GPS, GLONASS, and Beidou as well as Bluetooth 5.0. Thanks to the full GPS support, you don’t need to take your smartphone everywhere to make the wearable “capable” of tracking your routes. It also has a 355 mAh battery that charges from zero to full in just one hour. That’s the capacity behind the watch two week’s battery life claim. The wearable weighs just 45.8 grams and measures 42 x 46 x 11.9 mm.
The tag price is extremely accessible at only USD 99.99 from the official website. However, there is a catch, the wearable does not come from Motorola, but from a company called eBuyNow. The company licensed Motorola’s name for use in smartwatches and also produced the Moto 360 variant from 2019.
