IFA is full of new gadgets, wearables, and home appliances this year. ASUS took the event to launch its 3rd generation Zenwatch, though it is not the first from the company.
The only difference between the 3rd gen watch with its predecessor is that the new watch is a big change from the previous models that used a circular display instead of a square/rectangle. A new leak shows that ASUS is not the only company that is introducing square-face watches.
Motorola, another technology company, is also keen on launching its smartwatch with a square display. Some leaked image shows that a watch is most likely a prototype unit from the early days that was shelved in favor of a better-looking round-face Moto 360.
The images tweeted by tipster @upleaks on Monday and Tuesday show that the Moto 360 ‘Sport’ version would arrive in Black, White and Orange rubber bands and would as a fitness tracker, let users know about the time taken, miles covered, speed, and even blood pressure per minute during activities.
Another tweet added that the watch would feature a “Hybrid Display optimized for outdoor use,” which has 3ATM, i.e., atmosphere water resistance, GPS, and barometer.
Moreover, the crown button is seen at the same 2 o’clock position, but there are no external lugs as seen in metal versions. The band merges with the smartwatch‘s body, while a separate dial is visible on the side.
The tipster on Tuesday also revealed the alleged sizes of the Moto 360 Large and Moto 360 Small, divergent’s which have been rumored before. The smaller version is said to sport a 1.37-inch display, 42mm body, and 20mm band, while the larger version would feature a 1.55-inch display, 46mm body, and 22mm band.
Furthermore, a source says that the company was expected to launch a new version of the Moto 360 watch at IFA Berlin, but that didn’t happen. We still have more than 3 months before the year runs out, so we wouldn’t rule out a Moto 360 3rd Gen. The watch might launch just in time for the holidays.
The official launch date from Motorola for the Moto 360 successor is not revealed yet.
