Motorola discontinues the second-generation Moto 360 and Moto 360 Sport?
Last month, Google removed the second generation Moto 360 smartwatch from its online store. At the time, there was speculation that Motorola was ready to shut down the whole smartwatch division. While that may or may not happen, we can tell you that it appears that the company has discontinued the second-generation Moto 360 and the Moto 360 Sport. While the watches do appear on the Motorola website, there is no pricing information or links to purchase the two timepieces. In some regions, the watches have reportedly disappeared from the Motorola website.

The decision by Motorola to discontinue its smartwatch models comes as Google is about to start rolling out Android Wear 2.0. Yesterday, the LG Watch Style and the LG Watch Sport were unveiled, along with Verizon's Wear24 smartwatch. All three models come out of the box with the new build of Android Wear installed. In addition, both the Watch Sport and the Wear24 offer LTE connectivity allowing the two to make and take phone calls without having to pair with a smartphone.

Last June, word leaked that the original Moto 360 would not be receiving the new Android Wear build. Even though it seems as though the second-gen model and the Moto 360 Sport are no longer being sold, both wearables will be updated to Android 2.0.

It's a shame the Apple Watch is an ugly brick. Still selling +5 million units is not that bad I guess...

That was in one quarter. It's estimated at 11.9 mill for the entire year.

Apple sales never tell the story in what people really like or not. Just look at Apples new Airpods. They look ridiculous, and function even worse, with poor battery life. Apples brand has proven to me and many others. If Apple made and sold poop on a stick, then people like you nctx77, and others would be here preaching that Apples poop on a stick is the best poop on a stick, and everyone should get one.

You really need to fill out the butthurt form. Here, please point out on the doll where Apple has touched you.

A wise guy like you should provide a wise debate to him, or counter his answer....

Well, the Apple Watch IS a terrible smartwatch, so he's right. And the sad thing is that not only the customers but also the reviewers are oblivious to Apple's epic fail with the Watch. I mean sorry, a smartwatch that looks like a Fisher Price toy, one that can't tell the time at all times, one that doesn't allow third parties to "spoil' the monster show of watch faces out of the box? No cellular connectivity and I could go on...
