Motorola's "Moto Watch 100" appears in new leaked renders
Motorola has confirmed that it will partner with CE Brands to produce a successor for the 360-series smartwatches. However, the first of these is expected to move away from that older product name to become the Moto Watch 100 instead. Now, a new leak might confirm its design as well as some of its specs.
The new renders, presented "exclusively" by 91Mobiles, show a wearable very similar to one allegedly depicted in CE Brands' most recent investor-relation material. Accordingly, the new images reprise the round face, flat physical buttons and strap quite like that of the OnePlus Watch from that earlier leak.
This Moto Watch 100 is also now said to have a heart-rate sensor hidden behind a 1.3-inch display, kept on with a 355mAh battery. It is also now believed to support Bluetooth 5.0, despite the distinct mention of the newer 5.2 standard in a prior leak.
These new rumors might thus underpin indications that Motorola and CE Brands intend to pitch the Watch 100 as a more affordable wearable, particularly as that display may not be AMOLED. Accordingly, up-to-date specs such as the Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform are looking less and less likely.
The Moto Watch 100's case might look quite bulky at 20 millimeters (mm) in depth, although it is now tipped to weigh just 29 grams (g). Finally, there is still nothing concrete on the software this upcoming device might run.
Nevertheless, it is also projected to pack a blood-oxygen sensor, GPS, ambient light sensors and sleep-tracking features. The Moto Watch 100 may be in mass production at this point; therefore, combined with the fact one or two of its latest renders look like official marketing material, it might just make it to a launch before the end of 2021.
