SINGAPORE - Lenovo is bringing the new Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch to the local market, making it the first time that the Chinese company is launching a Motorola product in Singapore.

The second generation Moto 360, which was announced at IFA 2015 in September, is available in two sizes and will go on sale from Dec 15 at retail stores Newstead and Challenger, and from online retailer Lazada.

The 46mm silver and cognac leather version will retail at $549. The 42mm rose gold and blush leather model is retailing at $499, while the 42mm black and black leather model is priced at $479.

The circular device is one of the latest smartwatches to run Android Wear. It comes with 4GB of storage, and the larger version houses a 400 mAh battery, while the smaller one has a 300 mAh battery.

Lenovo, which bought Motorola Mobility in 2014, had previously focused on launching its own devices for the local market.
