All signs are saying that our long wait for the new Moto 360 is almost over. We should be hearing all about it next week at IFA. But just in case knowing that fact is still not enough, we have a couple photo leaks today that should help ease the pain.
To recall, past leaks have pointed at two variants of the new Moto 360, a large (Moto 360L) and a small (Moto 360S). We have a snapshot of both today.
Beginning with the 360L, the size is very reminiscent of the original Moto 360. There are a few details to note. First, you can tell the “flat tire” non-screen area is still present on the bottom. There is a new band attachment mechanism, via lugs that come out of the circular chassis. It can be assumed that this change will allow users to switch out the bands more easily. Lastly, the power button has moved, up to a 2-o’clock position. We don’t know if this was due to design requirements or if Moto figured this was a better spot for it.
Next up, we have a shot of the 360S, right next to the original 360 for a good size comparison.
The size is much more watch-like (personally, I’ve always felt the original 360 was a tad too large). We also see similar design language with the 360L, which adds credibility.
It is reasonable to expect that the 360S will be inferior spec-wise to the 360L, due to space restriction. Leaks have suggested a 270mAh battery in the 360S and a 375mAh battery in the 360L.
It’s not much longer until we know the whole deal! Do you like the small/large approach that Motorola is taking?

Much better than the first gen, but the flat tyre still makes me pause.
Definitely. Thought they would’ve figured out how enable the entire screen by now. It especially hurts because other circular smartwatches do.
Other round smartwatches also have enormous bezels. I choose flat tire! http://images.gizmag.com/hero/moto-360-vs-lg-watch-urbane.jpg
