Moto 360 (2015) Design

The new Moto 360 won't look very different from last year, at least if all of these leaks are accurate. We have the same minimal round design, but this time the power button will be at 2'oclock, rather than at 3. This makes it easier to reach and use with the opposite hand. We're also hearing it could have a rotating crown, similar to the Apple Watch, for improved controls, but that's yet to be confirmed. It doesn't appear that the actual top of the watch will have a rotating bezel, which would be a great way to navigate through apps and settings, which is something Samsung's recently added to its new Gear S2 smartwatch.

Another thing users probably didn't notice from these photos, is lugs. Lugs are the metal extensions that come off the body and allow for watch straps to attach to the watch. These were missing on the original and bands clipped in on the bottom using a typical watch pin and spring. This year though, Motorola had added the long lugs to give it a more typical watch look. This takes away from the minimal design, but could make it appeal to more "regular" watch users. Before it was just a gigantic screen resting on your wrist.
