The short supply of smartwatches accessible on the Google Store just got significantly more constrained, as the Moto 360 (second Gen) was recently knocked off the store.

On the other side, the second-era Moto 360, dissimilar to the first model, is set to get an upgrade to the forthcoming Android Wear 2.0. Google is relied upon to launch the new form of its wearable OS one month from now and it ought to pack various new elements and functionality.
The second-era Moto 360 gets along with Android cell phones running Android 4.3 or higher, or iPhone 5 or subsequent models running iOS 8.2 or higher.
