Moto 360 (2015) Release: Everything We Know So Far

The Moto 360 is arguably one of the best and most popular smartwatch options available today, but a new one is coming soon. Over the course of the past month we’ve seen countless leaks and heard multiple rumors about Motorola’s new Moto 360 for 2015, and now we even have a potential release date. Below is everything buyers need to know.

This week Google released Android Wear for iOS, allowing all the Android-powered smartwatches on the market to work wonderfully with iPhone devices. Just in time for that announcement is an all-new Moto 360 with two sizes, more customization, and even reportedly a “Sport” model and more coming in the next few weeks.

In fact, during this first week of September it’s reported that multiple manufacturers from LG, Motorola, ASUS, to even Fossil Watch Group, will all be announcing new Android Wear smartwatches for 2015. At the top of the list though, is the all-new 2015 Moto 360.

Back in July Motorola announced three new smartphones, and many expected a new smartwatch to be announced at the same time. Last year the Moto 360 was released alongside the Moto X, so many expected the same thing year.

However, the company has been completely silent regarding what to expect from its next smartwatch. With tons of competition, not to mention support to work with iPhone and all iOS 8.2 and above devices, now is more important than ever for smartwatch makers. Motorola has big plans for the 2015 Moto 360 (2nd Gen) and we know nearly everything already.

Last week some photos leaked of the new watch, and it was even spotted in the wild being worn throughout Chicago on multiple wrists, which is where Motorola’s headquarters are in the United States. Add in official-looking photos from the popular leakster @Evleaks, and even more photos from @Upleaks, and we know nearly all the details. Now we just need Motorola to make it official. We’re hearing an announcement will come by the end of the week. That said, the slideshow below goes over everything Moto 360 buyers should know.

Since countless photos have leaked revealing almost everything already, most potential buyers are only interested in the release date. We have a pretty good idea of when it's coming, and in the rest of this slideshow we'll go over everything you need to know about the new Moto 360.

So when is it coming? According to a leaked photo or teaser of the announcement, Lenovo (who now owns Motorola) looks to announce and possibly release the new Moto 360 on September 8th. This could be the announcement date, but most likely will be when the new smartwatch is released.

With countless leaks over the past month, and even Lenovo saying "It's Time" and teasing the image above with a new Moto 360 in Gold coming out of water, we're assuming that is the release date. We'll know more before the end of the week.
