Pre-orders start for Moto X Style and Moto 360 (2nd Gen.) smartwatch

Motorola's brand new phablet, the Moto X Style, is now available for pre-orders on the company's website. The phablet will also be available for purchase at Carphone Warehouse starting September 25.

The Moto X Style, featuring a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 21MP primary camera, Snapdragon 808 chip and a 64GB variant, is no less than traditional flagship phones. You can pre-order the 32GB variant for £399 onwards and can get to choose among a range of colours from Saffiano leather to real wood.

Besides being waterproof, the Moto X Style contains impressive camera technologies like Phase Detect Auto-Focus, Tap (anywhere) to capture, 4X digital zoom, Burst mode, Panorama, Auto HDR, 1080p HD video, slow motion videos and night mode.

You can customise the phones' skins as per your tastes and colour preferences using the online Motomaker design studio.

The smaller Moto X Play with an impressive 3,630 mAh battery, a 21MP camera, a 5.5-inch full HD display and a Snapdragon 615 processor is already available at prices starting from £279.

Both phones were launched by Motorola on July 28.

Along with the X Style, Motorola has also unveiled the Moto 360 2nd Gen smartwatch for pre-orders with prices starting from £229.

The new Moto 360, says Motorola, isn't just a watch with smart features, but is refined to suit the tastes of men, women as well as fitness enthusiasts, especially as far as changeable bands are concerned.

For men, the Moto 360 is available in 46mm and 42mm cases with 22mm and 20mm bands respectively, while women can choose a 42mm case with a thinner 16mm band.

Powered by the latest Android Wear, the new Moto 360 can be synced with both Android phones and iPhones, making it available for purchase by millions of iPhone users across the globe. If you are one, gone are the days when you were restricted to the Apple Watch alone as the optimal smartwatch.

In terms of internal features, the new Moto 360 is powered by a 512MB RAM and contains 4GB worth internal storage for your music. The watch also features a Snapdragon™ 400 chip with 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU, among the most powerful ones in the smartwatch world. Featuring wireless charging functionality, the 46m Moto 360 contains a 400mAh battery while the 42mm case holds a 300mAh battery which can last 1.5 days of regular usage.

For your fitness requirements, the Moto 360 features the Moto Body which uses accurate sensors to measure your heart rate as well as calories burnt. The new watch will also come as a Moto 360 Sport variant which contains built-in GPS that can track your speed, distance, and pace. This feature means you won't have to carry your phone while going out on daily runs.

Using the Moto Maker design studio, you will be able to customise the Moto 360 as per your needs, choosing among a range of bezels, colours, materials and band designs.
