Motorola’s first smartwatch, the original Moto 360, was pretty popular. It was one of the first smartwatches on the market to really nail the circular display design but early adopters felt that it could have had better specifications. Turns out that the second-generation Moto 360 addressed many of those concerns but sadly it didn’t perform well.
So now Google has gone ahead removed the smartwatch from its online store.
While the second-generation Moto 360 did address many of the issues of the original smartwatch, it was the $300 price tag that turned away many buyers, who went with more affordably options. Since this, Motorola hasn’t really shown any intention of making new smartwatches. It is unclear if it will jump back into this market. Only time will tell.
Google also removed the second-generation Moto 360 just a week after it decided to no longer offer all of Fossil’s Android Wear smartwatches on its online store too. So it looks like it is getting rid of dead weight. The company had already removed the Moto 360 Sport from the online store just a few months after the smartwatch was released. It is obviously not a real great time for the company when it comes to smartwatches.
