Today MOTA has announced that their new SmartWatch G2 is now available to pre-order for $80 and provides connectivity to both Google Now and Apple’s Siri personal assistant depending on your preference.
The new MOTA SmartWatch G2 is available to purchase in a variety of colours including black, white and red and will start shipping later this month on June 20th 2014.
Unfortunately the SmartWatch G2 device only supports Bluetooth 3.0 which will definitely cause a knock-on effect to the battery life of your devices and seems a strange move by its developers considering that Bluetooth 4.0 has been widely available for quite some time. MOTA explains a little more about the features you can expect to use if you purchase a SmartWatch G2.
“The all-new SmartWatch G2 introduces support for Google Now and Apple’s Siri intelligent personal assistants. Once paired with an Android or iPhone, users can speak commands to the SmartWatch and hear the results without having to hold or wear their phone.
Paired with a smartphone, the SmartWatch G2 can be used to quickly and easily send email, check a weather forecast, search the web and more. Lightweight and solidly built, it is engineered for superior performance with integrated premium speakers, a microphone and a vibrant OLED screen.”
Using Bluetooth 3.0, MOTA says their SmartWatch G2 device can remain in standby mode for up to 72 hours on a single charge. However this is reduced to just three hours of talk time before the battery runs dry.
