The Moto 360 v2 keep appearing on the streets and in pics, still no release date coming

Moto360 Gen2
The Moto 360 2015 (gen 2) is definitely real, Motorola themselves even showed it off accidentally last week. It’s also apparently quite popular around the streets of Motorola’s headquarters in Chicago where it’s been spotted on the wrists of various people on the streets.

The watch has been seen twice on the streets of Chicago, with keen eyed redditors snapping pics of the watch in both Gold and Black case stylings that show off the new lugs for attaching a watch band to. Also seen is the newly positioned crown (the button on the side) which sits at the 1-2 o’clock mark on the watch.

The takeaway from both is that the infamous ‘flat tyre’ still exists, which points to the Moto 360 2015 having an ambient light sensor again.

Pictures of the watch in the wild are great, but another user on reddit from Truffol, a company who makes phone cases and Pebble watchbands has gotten their hands on the casing for the Moto 360 2015 and has shown off several pics of the casing on reddit.

The user who uploaded the pics had a few things to say about the watch, there is a microphone hole on the left and those lugs now support standard 22mm watch bands – seemingly the de facto standard for Android Wear (indeed most mainstream) watches.

The launch date for the Moto 360 2015 remains unclear – it has passed through the FCC and Brazilian regulators – but we hope it’s soon.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Don’t care about flat tyre, just want it to come in a smaller size.

The one the women was wearing looks like a smaller variant, possibly?
