Already for some time it seethes with Lenovo and the successor to the Moto 360 in the rumor mill on the subject. After the manufacturer announced a few months ago, that there should be no successor this year, it is now even more concrete: Lenovo is completely withdrawing from the market.
The reasons for Lenovo:
The reason according to Ross Barkat, Head of the Development Department at Moto: the low demand for the smart watches. Therefore not worth for the company each year to bring out a new watch. However, the Chinese manufacturer not quite rule out a comeback. “We believe that the companion for the wrist still has its value, and there will be a point at which they offer sufficient added value the customer,” the company continued.
