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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
