Next Moto 360 may come in two different models, according to leaked pics

The tweaks look to be relatively minor, but two versions could have broader appeal.

There may not be one, but two new versions of the Moto 360 coming your way.

Two leaked pictures show off what could be the next version of Motorola’s Android Wear smartwatch.

A slimmed-down Moto 360 is shown next to the current model.

In one picture, a smaller model is on a wrist next to the current Moto 360. This would be a wise move to appeal to a wider variety of potential customers, since not all wrists are created equal.

The other picture shows a model that looks rather similar to the current edition, with the crown moved to the 2 o’clock position.

Why this matters: Usually when such leaks show up it means the final version is almost ready. The Moto 360 was the first premium-grade Android Wear watch, though it took a few software updates to cut back on some of the battery life issues it had at launch. Smartwatches are still a rather new product, so with each iteration we should see more improvements in design and engineering.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
