Moto Watch 200 appears online in retailer listing, along with Watch 150 & 70
Detailed technical specs and images of Moto Watch 200 have appeared in an online listing by Best Buy in Canada. This will be the sequel to the Moto Watch 100 revealed about a year ago. Other timepieces that will also launch include Watch 150 and 70.
The CE Brands roadmap published in early 2021 said Watch 100 would be followed by Moto Watch 200 and Moto Watch 100S. These were supposed to see the light of day in Q1 2022. However it is only now that we will get the first of these two. Along with two others. It’s possible one of them is a replacement for the 100S that was planned.
Moto Watch 200 – what is known
The device had received the approval from the FCC last month. This revealed pics of the packaging which gave us the first glimpse of Moto Watch 200. Unlike its predecessor, it will be a square timepiece with a large colour display and two physical buttons on the right-hand side. The straps are removable so you can swap them around.

This retail listing from Best Buy shows that the watch comes in a 45 mm body and two case colour options – a Black/Gold and Black/Silver. Both will retail for 199 Canadian dollars which equates to around 150 US dollars.
The listing describes the watch with the following text.
Accelerate your progress with the Motorola Motorcycle Watch 200. Designed for your active lifestyle, it is filled with functions such as step and distance tracking, heart rate and Sp02 monitoring, 28 sports modes and much more. It effortlessly connects to your smartphone so that you can receive instant notifications for text messages, phone calls and other important alerts.
As far as the other specs, here are the highlights.
- 45mm AMOLED touchscreen with 348 x 442 pixel resolution
- Aluminum case and silicone bracelet for increased durability during your most intense workouts
- Sensors: Accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter, heart rate monitor and SpO2 sensor to monitor your steps, distance, running, elevation, calories burned, heart rate, and more
- Built-in GPS
- Integrated microphone and speaker
- 28 sports modes supporting your active lifestyle by helping you establish routines and surpass yourself
- Battery life with typical use: up to 14 days. Fully recharges in just 60 minutes via 60 cm black USB-A charging base.
- Water resistance up to 5 atmospheres allowing you to wear the watch in the shower or when swimming
Smart functions seem to be pretty standard. They include notifications (message and call), camera controls, music controls, Find My Phone, calendar, alarm, vibration and weather information. The device does not have Google Assistant or Alexa compatibility. Also no support for ANT+, WiFi or NFC, only Bluetooth 5.0.
The watch will be both iOS and Android compatible. As far as the operating system, the retailer listing mentions “other”. So in all likelihood, this will be a device running on Moto Watch OS rather than Google’s Wear OS. The same was the case for Moto Watch 100.
Moto Watch 150 – a circular timepiece
Moto Watch 150 is a circular timepiece. It comes in two combinations – a Rose Gold/Brown Leather and a Black/Black Leather. Both retail for 199 Canadian dollars.
This one uses the same fitness sensors as Watch 200 but with Connected rather than built-in GPS. The number of sports modes Is 24.
As far as battery life, this is unchanged at 14 days. The same applies to quick charging.
The highlight of the device is the 30.5mm full-colour AMOLED which boasts a 390 x 390 pixel resolution. Which means you should get something that is crisp, clear and easy on the eyes. Beyond that you get a stainless steel case and a silicone strap which should be good for even the toughest of workouts.
Moto Watch 70 – low spec option
Finally, Best Buy also lists Moto Watch 70. As its name indicates, this will be a lower specs timepiece that will retail for half the price of Watch 200 and 150 – only 99 Canadian dollars.
It also comes in a square design but with only one physical button. The build is a zinc alloy case rather than Aluminum. On-board is a lower spec ACL 1.69″ color screen with 240 x 280 pixels resolution. The water resistance is also not as good as on the other two – only IP67. There appears to be only a single Black iteration of Watch 70.
Other differences from Watch 200 include Connected rather than built-in GPS, battery life of 10 days and support for 23 sports modes. The fitness and health sensors look to be the same.
