Original post: We’ve all probably assumed that a new Moto 360 is in the works for a while now, but today Lenovo has finally given us a launch date. The company has just sent out an invitation via Weibo for a launch conference that will take place in Shanghai on September 8th, accompanied by the words “it’s time”.
Along with the launch date, the teaser confirms the design spotted in leaked images over the past weeks, complete with the new 2 o’clock physical button. Along with the rose gold color in the invitation, the Moto 360 2 is also expected to arrive in silver and black options.
We have had a few good looks at the second generation Moto 360 recently, following a number of leaks. Most recently, the new smartwatch is said to be arriving in regular and sporty variants.

Some hardware rumors pin one version on a 1.37-inch display and 270mAh battery, while the second variant will feature a larger 1.55-inch display and 375mAh battery. The sport version is said to come with a hybrid display for better outdoor viewing, 3ATM water resistance, GPS location tracking, and a barometer, according to @upleaks. However, this version is not expected to be unveiled until November.
