Recently, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) officially announced the Moto Watch 70 before it launched in the U.S. In November, there was a small leak about the watch online. Still, no other details have surfaced.
Supposed to be released a year ago, the Moto Watch 200, Moto Watch 100S and other timepieces have yet to hit the market for some unknown reason.
In the U.S., smartwatch manufacturers must acquire FCC approval if their devices have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or any other wireless communication capability. Recently, Watch 70 joined its predecessor, Moto Watch 200, in receiving the FCC’s endorsement. The Federal Communications Commission governs America’s radiofrequency spectrum- a fraction of the electromagnetic field used for wireless communication.
Consequently, the device is now available in the U.S., so there may soon be an official announcement from Motorola about their new watches. It would be extraordinary if that weren’t the case!
An affordable option
The Watch 200 and 100S provide a better user experience while the more affordable Watch 70 is ideal for those with tighter budgets. A recently leaked.
The simple design of the Moto Watch 70 helps to keep the price down – it is square and features one physical button on its side. Zinc alloy construction makes this case heavier than aluminium, but it’s also more susceptible to denting and scratching.
The included colour screen is 1.69” with a relatively low resolution of 240×280 pixels.
Here’s what Watch 70 looks like.
The sensors are the same as those on higher-performance models. These include an accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter, heart rate monitor and SpO2 sensor. With them, you can track your steps, distance run, elevation gained, calories burned and heart rate, and 23 different sports modes.
However, instead of built-in GPS, you only get Connected GPS on Watch 70. The water resistance is also not as good as on the other two – only IP67.
This device can go up to 10 days before needing a charge, thanks to its low-power-consuming proprietary operating system.
