With the first anniversary of the launch of the Moto 360 at retail in the US, one of the nicest looking Android Wear watches is due for an update. Motorola has advised they are indeed working on a new Moto 360 and it may have just shown up in a tweet from the company themselves.

The tweet in question features quite a silly video really of how you can use the Moto 360, and indeed Android Wear to search for a video for your dog, in this case a Maltese Cross dog called Tiny Indiana Jones.

The video shows an static asset of a Moto 360 with a brand new design, with external watch band lugs and a crown located at the 1 o’clock position on the right hand side of the watch face. The big takeaway from this first look, if that’s what this is, is the ‘flat tyre’ is back.


We’ve captured the video in case the tweet is removed shortly, but it’s still live for the time being and links to the US Moto 360 website, which so far only shows the original Moto 360.

The new design matches up very closely with some of the samples that Lenovo CEO, Yang Yuanqing, showed off accidentallyback in March.

It’s a good looking watch there’s no doubt. Will it be released? Or is this just a mockup? Let us know your thoughts below.

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.

I’d much rather deal with the flat tyre than have some chunky bezel or fake dial around the edges of the watch. Besides so much of the fun with the first gen was finding watch faces that made use of the black bar in creative ways

since it’s close to the earlier leak I’m hoping their is still 2 different sizes


Surely the second gen won’t have a flat tyre again?! I was fine putting up with it in the first gen, but not for the second gen.

I hardly notice it on mine but yeah you’d think they would have ‘fixed’ it for gen 2.

Interesting. Something I don’t remember reading about that bottom photo though (unless I missed it) is that there seem to be a large and a small size watch.

That’s one great observation. ?

I definitely remember stories of the first leak, here and at other sites and yes, there definitely was two sizes in that photo, not clear if we are still getting two sizes
