Motorola’s second smartwatch following last year’s stylish Moto 360 may well be approaching launch, if recent FCC filings are anything to go by.
Many were half-expecting Motorola to announce the Moto 360 2 (or Moto 360 (2015), if you prefer) during its global launch event held yesterday. However, the company stuck with its three new smartphones instead: the Moto X Play, Moto X Style, and Moto G 3 (2015).
That doesn’t mean that a follow-up to the poster boy of the Android Wear first wave isn’t in the works. In fact, the Moto 360 2 could be imminent.
An unnamed Motorola device recently passed though America’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC). That’s typically one of the last stops before a connected device is made public.
So what do we learn from this FCC filing? Not a great deal, as it turns out, other than that it’s a “Smart Watch” from “Motorola Mobility,” and that it features WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.

To be honest, though, that’s all we really need to know in order to confirm that the Moto 360 2 – or whatever it turns out to be called – is on its way.
Here’s hoping that Motorola has addressed the Moto 360’s flaws (poor performance, poor battery, that ‘flat tire’ display) while maintaining its striking design.
