An unreleased Motorola¬†“smart watch”¬†has stopped by the FCC ahead of its official unveiling. The device is believed to be Motorola’s second-generation Moto 360, which we’ve been hearing about for a while, and the filing suggests we’ll see it very soon.

With the original Moto 360 celebrating its first birthday this September, we’re expecting a new model very soon. Images of the device have already appeared online, suggesting small but significant design changes, including a thinner form factor, a quick swap band system similar to that of the Apple Watch, and no bezels.

The watch’s internals remain a mystery at this point, but the FCC listing confirms Bluetooth 4.0 + EDR and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n connectivity.

Is this the Moto 360 2?

After Motorola announced the Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and 2015 Moto G on Tuesday, it’s unlikely the company will have another event planned in the immediate future — but we can likely expect to see the device this fall ahead of the lucrative holiday shopping period.
