Motorola's Moto 360 smartwatch was announced back in March, and now we're hearing reports that the device will be launched in the July timeframe at a price point in the $400 range. The Moto 360 was unveiled at the same time as Google's Android Wear OS was outed. The circular screen on the Moto 360 sure is pleasing to the eye, and it's nice to at least hear of a launch within the next couple of months.
The only design feature we know of for sure is the single button. I'm a big fan of a minimalist design and the Moto 360 looks to hit that sweet spot in eye-catching aesthetics. We will probably hear more on the Moto 360 during Google I/O which begins on June 25. The device will include the functionality to integrate with the entire Android OS and Google Now services. Customization of bands will be included which will be a nice addition.
I know there is a huge amount of interest in the smartwatch craze, but it will be interesting to see if the platform actually takes off full-throttle. Can you see yourself using a smartwatch on a daily basis to add functionality to your digital lives? Now is definitely a good time to assess your individual needs and decide for yourselves.
