The Moto 360 is back, but it's not made by Motorola

When Google originally announced Android Wear (now called Wear OS), one of the first smartwatches with it was Motorola's Moto 360, it quickly became a fan-favorite with its elegant design; it was also one of the first Android-powered smartwatches with a round design.

Many were disappointed in 2016 when Motorola said it was getting out of the smartwatch market, after two generations of the Moto 360. But if you're a fan of the brand, there's good news: the Moto 360 is back. The brand is being licensed to a company called eBuyNow, similar to how Nokia licenses its brand to HMD Global and BlackBerry licenses its brand to TCL.

The third-generation Moto 360 has a stainless steel frame that comes in Steel Grey, Rose Gold, and Phantom Black. It does have larger bezels than its predecessors, also eliminating the so-called "flat tire" in the display. It packs a Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset, 1GB RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, so while it's somewhat expensive at $350, it does include top-end specs.

It's unclear if the Moto 360 will be able to win back the hearts of consumers, being that in the last few years, the Wear OS market has seen many stylish options, such as the Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch. The new Moto 360 will be available in December, and you can check it out at
