Motorola has a new smartwatch in the form of the Moto 360 which is the second device to bear that name - here's an unboxing

There's a new version of the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch out in the wild, and early reviews are really positive. It has a new steamlined design with an impressively thin bezel, an on board activity tracker and the ability to function without a phone connected while you're using Wi-Fi. Which is a feature we're surprised more smartphones don't include.

Here's a look at what you'll get in the box with the new smartwatch.

 

 

Just to be a little confusing, this is the second generation of this model with the exact same name. The best way to distinguish them apart is that the button on the bezel is now at around the two o'clock postition rather than at 3 in the older model.

The straps are easier to take off now, which is always a plus, and that screen looks absolutely gorgeous. The wireless charger looks great, letting you use the watch as a kind of bedside clock as you're using it and it all sets up really quickly with the use of Android Wear.

Mostly, it looks like a nice watch- if one that's a little big!

The Motorola Moto 360 (2015) is set for release in September 2015, priced around €300.
