Motorola has announced two more Moto Mods for its Moto Z lineup. The two new mods further expand the companies module phone system and provide new functionality for supported devices.
The first mod is the Vital Moto Mod. It was created for personal health monitoring and can check your heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, body temperature, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure. It’s a pretty serious device and the $395 price tag reflects this. Nonetheless, it may be a vital (get it?) companion for some people and will be launching in April.
The other is the Livermorium Slider Keyboard. You might have seen this mod at the Transform the Smartphone Challenge, where it won the grand prize. It’s a slide-out keyboard reminiscent of the old days, and it gives you the ability to tilt the screen 60 degrees. It may add bulk but this is a seriously awesome mod that should be available later this winter for $99.
Motorola is sticking with the idea of modular devices and we’re finally seeing some truly useful Moto Mods on the market.
