Bluetooth SIG website lists potential Motorola Moto 360 successor
A new Motorola device has been recently spotted getting its Bluetooth certifications, and there's a good chance that we're looking at the rumored Motorola Moto 360 successor. The device listed over at the official Bluetooth SIG website bears the model number BTMW03, while the original Moto 360 has the model number BTMW01.

Unfortunately, there's nothing else that we can spot from this listing in the Bluetooth SIG database. As a side note, it's worth mentioning that when a device gets a Bluetooth certification, an official unveiling usually isn't very far off, although there have been multiple cases when this pattern was broken. The last time we've heard about the Motorola Moto 360, a render allegedly leaked online revealing a fully-circular display.

The original Motorola Moto 360 was one of the hottest smartwatches of 2014, being the first Android-powered smartwatch to adopt a rounded form factor. As the months passed, however, the Motorola Moto 360 has become increasingly less competitive. The display is not completely circular (there's a black portion at the bottom), the TI chip isn't quite as snappy as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 that powers most other Android Wear smartwatches, while the thickness of the device isn't exactly very appealing to those with smaller wrists. 

Acknowledging the limitations of its smartwatch, Motorola has lately offered significant price cuts, and the Moto 360 is now available for just $165 from the Google Play Store with free shipping. 

While these price cuts have largely been interpreted as a response to the launch of the Apple Watch, they can also be a sign that Motorola could soon release a successor to the Moto 360.
