Motorola Moto Watch 200: Leak reveals design and specifications of upcoming smartwatch
The Moto Watch 200 has stopped by the FCC, almost a year after the arrival of the Moto Watch 100. To recap, the Moto Watch 100 features a round display and Moto Watch OS, a proprietary operating system that Motorola described as 'streamlined experience focused on health and routine dramatically increases battery life.' In other words, the Moto Watch 100 lacks many of the features that its Wear OS counterparts offer, a trade-off for superior battery life.
Like the Moto Watch 100, the Moto Watch 200 is a Motorola smartwatch in name only. Instead, Motorola partnered with eBuyNow to produce the Moto Watch 200, which explains why the FCC listing was filed under the latter rather than the former. Regardless, the Moto Watch 200 has a rectangular display, unlike its predecessor. Typically, the FCC does not publish pictures of a device before launch, but the regulatory body has done so with the Moto Watch 200 by sharing its box art.
Accordingly, the Moto Watch 200 has two physical buttons, a quick change system for swapping between watch bands and is 5 ATM water resistant. Additionally, the smartwatch has heart rate monitoring and GPS capabilities, as well a magnetic charging ring ion its rear. As the drawing below shows, the Moto Watch 200 features an aluminium case and supports Bluetooth Low Energy too. Unfortunately, it remains to be seen when the Moto Watch 200 will arrive and whether it will price-match its predecessor at US$99.99.
