In line with Google’s announcement regarding its new wearables OS Android Wear, Motorola have showcased the smartwatch to rule them all.
The Moto 360 will be one of the first smartwatches to run on the new mobile OS and has been showed off in one of Google’s promo videos. The new premium looking device features a traditional looking round digital watch face and features gesture based notifications. According to Motorola these notifications will all be delivered through ‘the twist of a wrist’.
Motorola has promised that when the smartwatch is released in summer it come in a range of styles and include a choice of leather of metal straps.
In what has been a mostly disappointing line up of smartwatches thus far, the Moto 360 may well be the most beautiful device yet!
Today Google announced it was getting involved in the wearables scene by means of their new, super mobile operating system – Android Wear. Google Wear is designed specifically for smartwatches and the company has released a couple of promo videos showcasing what looks like a sweet and intuitive user interface. The new OS will feature initially on smartwatches designed by Motorola and LG, and from what has been seen so far both look pretty damn amazing!
Looking after all your fitness needs, Android Wear will display distance, speed and time information and will feature Google maps. Another key feature will be Google Now which will allow users to easily access functions via voice command. This will be an ‘always listening experience’ and users can access instant relevant information with the voice command ‘Ok Google’.
From what we have seen of Google Wear it looks pretty amazing. It may be exactly what the wearable’s market has been waiting for.
