After reaching a license agreement with Motorola, a Canadian company called eBuyNow released the new Moto 360 in early 2020. With the introduction of new Moto-branded Wear OS devices, this arrangement will be expanded later this year.
This information comes from an investor presentation (via Watch Smarty) delivered by eBuyNow and CE Brands Inc on February 9, 2021. Buyers of the new Moto 360 know the first company, but the merger is underway:
CE Brands Inc and eBuyNow eCommerce Ltd have reached a binding merger agreement, which will enable CE Brands Inc to assume the operations and assets of eBuyNow eCommerce Ltd.
This Moto G Smartwatch (apparently named after the phone series) is almost the same as the current Moto 360. However, there is a white/silver case, no rotatable crown, and two flat buttons on the right. The naming indicates that this will be a more affordable product and also indicates that the Motorola brand license agreement has been expanded.
Assuming that the order is correct, one month later, we should see a brand new rectangular Moto Watch running Moar OS with a button to get tips from the Apple Watch. The signature dial has been adapted to different screens. Moto One looks slimmer, more sleek, and there may be more advanced products.
Elsewhere, the “Product Partners” slide stated that “eBuyNow is one of the few active Wear OS licensees,” and the company “is one of the earliest companies in the early stages of partnering with Qualcomm to provide quality wearables.” .
What specifications will drive these devices remains to be seen, but the Snapdragon Wear 4100 equipped with 1GB RAM will prove these watches in the future and engage in dialogue with eBuyNow’s touted relationship with Qualcomm. In other words, the implicit endurance of G Smartwatch may mean the 3100 processor.
This presentation also seems to show the unprecedented white third-generation Moto 360, which has a transparent back cover that allows users to see the charging coil and other circuits. Its design is pretty cool.
Overall, the expanded lineup of newly launched Moto watches (if launched) will help provide meaningful competition to existing Fossil Group products and help develop the Wear OS ecosystem.
