Next Moto 360 may come in two different models, according to leaked pics

The tweaks look to be relatively minor, but two versions could have broader appeal.

There may not be one, but two new versions of the Moto 360 coming your way.

Two leaked pictures show off what could be the next version of Motorola’s Android Wear smartwatch.

A slimmed-down Moto 360 is shown next to the current model.

In one picture, from well-known Motorola facebook page hellomotoHK, a smaller model is on a wrist next to the current Moto 360. This would be a wise move to appeal to a wider variety of potential customers, since not all wrists are created equal. HellomotoHK has a mixed track record, but the photo looks legit and jibes well with other rumors we've heard about the Moto 360 lately.

The other picture, posted to Weibo (think: China's Facebook) shows a model that looks rather similar to the current edition, with the crown moved to the 2 o’clock position. This resembles previously leaked photos and design rumors. 

Why this matters: Usually when such leaks show up it means the final version is almost ready. The Moto 360 was the first premium-grade Android Wear watch, though it took a few software updates to cut back on some of the battery life issues it had at launch. Smartwatches are still a rather new product, so with each iteration we should see more improvements in design and engineering.
