The Moto 360 smartwatch has made a comeback, only it isn't in the way you imagined. Between 2015 and 2016, Motorola launched two iterations of the Moto 360, but the company pulled out from the smartwatch market soon after that. Cut to 2019 and we now have a third-gen Moto 360, but this one isn't from Motorola. Instead, it comes from a company called eBuyNow, which decided to revive the Moto 360 for some reason.

According to the eBuyNow's website, the company has been in business for 15 years, "building products and services with major hardware and software brands to help rapidly execute new product development."

The new Moto 360 looks very similar to its predecessor, but it comes with updated internals. It gets the same circular design with a 1.2-inch OLED display and a 360x360 resolution. The Moto 360 third-gen runs on Wear OS by Google and gets features like Google Assistant, Google Fit and Google Pay support. It is powered by a Snapdragon 3100 chipset paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

Moto 360 gets two buttons on the side of the body. The crown can rotate, allowing you to easily browse through the UI while the bottom button can be customised to launch your prefered app. The new Moto 360 also gets Always On support and a 355mAh battery. Notably, the smartwatch supports fast charging and will fully charge to 100 per cent in one hour.

Moto 360 from eBuyNow will cost USD 350 (approx Rs 24,800) which makes a pretty premium Android smartwatch. It is expected to start shipping in December in Steel Grey, Rose Gold, or Phantom Black colors with stainless steel finishing. The new Moto 360 is not expected to launch in India.
