Motorola will be following up on their first wildly successful “round” smartwatch, Moto 360, with a smartwatch that is, indeed, truly round. The Moto 360 is no doubt a success. As the first round smartwatch to hit the very young wearable tech industry.
Motorola Moto 360 2 (or 720) round-faced smartwatch

Processor: 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400-series 8026 2x SoC, 450 MHz Adreno-450 MHz GPU
RAM: 512 MB
Battery: 400 mAh
Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0

The next Moto smartwatch isn’t significantly different in size. The display on the second Moto smartwatch is the same plus a bit extra because it’s a real circle now, not blocked off at the bottom like the Moto 360. This display will be sharper, too, owing to new panels appearing with slightly more pixels in the same amount of space.
While it might seem odd that Motorola would go with the same processor that devices like the LG G Watch used at launch last year, Motorola previously used the TI OMAP3630, a Texas Instruments processor. This TI processor was the same unit they used in the Motorola MOTOACTV from all the way back in 2011.
If they could create an awesome smartwatch with the Moto 360 using a four-year-old processor, imagine what they could do with a new one!
Moto 360 2 may be unveiled in the Moto event held on 28 th July 2015.
