moto-360-s

My only gripe with the current crop of circular Android watches is that they’re all bulky, even the ones that look more traditional like the Moto 360 and the G Watch R. Motorola may be working on that pain point for its impending Moto 360 refresh, which may occur as soon as next week, and a new image shows a much more svelte industrial design.

In the image above, you’ll note the smaller Moto 360S to the right of the current Moto 360. The materials look more premium and the watch face now has lugs for easier swapping of watch bands. The Moto 360S is said to launch alongside a possible Moto 360L, the “S” and “L” representing smaller and larger sizes. PhoneArena said the Moto 360L, with extra space, will accommodate a larger 375mAh battery than the 270mAh unit in the Moto 360S.

Still no word on a launch date or how much these are going to cost, but we’re liking what we see. Rumor has it Motorola may introduce its new smart watches next week during IFA in Berlin. Here’s a look at some earlier leaks to tide you over.
