A report in Detik points out Lenovo's Vice-President Smartphone Business Lead of Asia Pacific wearing the next-gen Moto 360 at an event in Indonesia.  It was earlier reported to be launched by the end of this year, and we could probably see it at the IFA.

It also gets a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. At the core of the wearable, it is powered by the TI OMAP 3 processor coupled with 512MB RAM.

It also gets 4GB internal memory. For tracking activities, it is fitted with a pedometer and optical heart rate monitor (PPG). The IP67-certified Moto 360 is water-resistant and also supports wireless charging.

The support for voice control makes it easy to get things done, even when your hands are full. Users can send texts, set a reminder, check the weather, and even ask for directions by saying ‘Ok Google’. The Moto 360 runs Google’s Android Wear, especially crafted for smartwatches and offers compatibility with devices running Android 4.3 and higher.
