‘Moto Watch 70’ shows up with fitness tracking, square design, and no Wear OS

From 9to5google.com


The Moto 360 was one of the first great smartwatch options on top of Google’s Android Wear, but fell out of favor in later years. The name was brought back from another brand later on, but in lieu of a proper sequel to that device, the “Moto Watch†line has instead appeared, with a new “Moto Watch 70†apparently right around the corner.

Best Buy Canada has posted the “Moto Watch 70†online ahead of any apparent announcement of the product. The watch isn’t available for purchase, but the listing reveals the design, pricing, and features.

The product listing summarizes the watch saying:

Reach your fitness goals with the cutting-edge features of Motorola’s Moto Watch 70. Designed to showcase your active lifestyle, it measures your health, activity level, steps and other important information so you can monitor your progress. It has 23 sport modes to support all your activities and connects directly to your smartphone for convenient notifications.

The design of the “Moto Watch 70†is somewhat Apple Watch-esque with a square 1.69-inch display and a black zinc alloy case. The watch has an IP67 water resistance rating, a heart rate monitor, SpO2 measurements, and other typical fitness sensors as well as built-in GPS. The listing mentions both Android and iOS support as well as up to 10 days of battery life under typical use, and 14 hours of battery life under continuous fitness tracking.

As you might assume based on the battery life figures, there’s no Wear OS on board here. Rather, this is using a basic smartwatch OS much like the Moto Watch 100 which launched late last year for $100 in the US.

The “Moto Watch 70†is listed for $99 CAD at Best Buy, which seems to translate to around $75 in US dollars. A release date isn’t clear at this point, but it seems to be reasonably close.
