The legendary Moto 360 returns with an improved version and without Motorola

Do you remember the legendary Moto 360, one of the first (and best) watches with Android Wear? Well, he is back with a new model based on Wear OS.

The history of smart watches is not too broad, but it has given enough time to create authentic icons. Devices that dominate the market, such as the Apple Watch ; sporty and elegant watches, such as the Samsung Watch Active 2 ; and one that marked an era in the beginning of Android Wear, the Motorola Moto 360 .

Do you remember that smartwatch? It broke the trend in smart watches by betting on a really round dial ; however much I had the inconvenience of the lower strip to lighten the brightness sensor. A second generation eliminated that strip, but it did not curdle enough for Motorola to keep the watch range active since Lenovo canceled it. And now comes a third generation of Moto 360 that is not manufactured by Motorola .

The new Moto 360 takes the Motorola brand to offer an updated design and features and with Wear OS
