Motorola has announced the Moto 360, a smartwatch that runs Google’s new Android Wear platform.
The Moto 360 will feature a premium build centered around a circular watch face, this is very unlike most smartwatches on the market today from the likes of Samsung’s Gear and Pebble, but like most other Android Wear smartwatches we expect to see over the next few months, Google Now will be the biggest feature and can be activated by saying “OK Google.” Once activated, the features are just like the ones found on your smartphone or tablet. Sports scores, transportation times, reminders, and even sending a text message can be handled through the device via voice input.
The Moto 360 will be available this Summer in a variety of designs. You can sign up for alerts from Motorola here, Motorola will also holding a Google Hangout tomorrow at 6pm GMT 19th of March, with the Moto 360′s lead designer, Jim Wicks.
We expect to get more information on both Moto 360 and Android Wear as we get closer to the Google I/O in June later this year, I for one cannot wait until I can get my palms on these new devices, Pebble must be sat thinking to themselves… Oh Sh…
