Last week we shared news about the new series of Moto-branded smartwatches released over the coming months, but we missed an important hint at their potential. In one of the slides showing the backside of one of the watches, the bezel of the case had a list of specs were hidden unless you look carefully at the images. If these specs hold-up, we might finally get another next-gen Wear OS to watch to compete with the TicWatch Pro 3.
If we enhance the image we see that the Moto watch will have 5ATM water resistance, GPS, NFC, and what appears to be wireless charging through a coil underneath what seems to be a glass cover. But the biggest news it seems to have a print of “Snapdragon Wear 4100.”
Snapdragon Wear 4100 dramatically improves performance over watches running the Wear 3100. The difference is so big that we wouldn’t recommend anyone buy a watch running the Wear 3100.
Adding Motorola to the mix, even if eBuyNow is the company making the watch, gives us a bit of hope for Wear OS.
