    Apparently following along in the footsteps of the Moto X naming scheme, the new 360 is simply... the 2015 360. It seems Motorola likes this naming scheme instead of putting a 2 on everything.

    The "Collection" as they are calling it, starts out at $299 for the 2 smaller versions (a men's and women's) and a larger one that comes with a $50 bump in price. It's actually available right now on the Moto Maker website for pre-order. The most expensive version with every option checked is $450.

    It's a lot more customizable then its predecessor, has improved better battery life and yes, it still has the flat tire which Moto claims doesn't bother most people.

    Oh, and did I mention a Sport version coming soon, too, that rounds out the "Motorola Collection"?

    Looks great! I had this story in queue to post, but I got swamped with other stuff. Thanks for taking care of this @PereDroid! :)

    Well I know I'm getting the Sport....only question is how long do I have to wait. I could breakdown and just get the Smartwatch 3.

    Are there any new features that the 2015 360 will do that my 2014 360 doesn't do now? I mean, I love the new look, a bit classier, but if theres nothing new inside it other than a hardware update, mine is just fine. I dont' see a reason to upgrade.

    Also, is 46mm the screen size or the bezel from side to side?

    Other than an upgraded CPU, I don't think so. The Sport version adds GPS and water resistance.

    The Sport version is more like it. I may need to upgrade.

    I really like this one especially the smaller men's version.
    I guess the flat tire isn't terrible on some of the faces. That's the thing though. It's barely noticeable on some... and HIDEOUS on others.

    So horrible I can't believe this is a stock one:

    Flat tire? I don't see a flat tire? Looks great here.
