Picture of supposed new Moto 360 smartwatch leaked on Weibo

While there are a growing number of players in the smartwatch market, one of the earliest OEMs to have made their mark in the market is Motorola and its Moto 360. Supposedly, it was the first round-faced Android Wear device to come out, but LG G Watch R beat them to the punch in terms of launching. And while the Moto 360 received stellar reviews, it just went quiet all of a sudden. However, a new image leaked on China's social networking giant might see the revival of the smartwatch.

LG G Watch R now available from Google Play Store
