It will launch this summer, a bit behind the Q2-bound LG G Watch
Google has just launched the Android Wear dedicated OS for wearable devices, prompting LG and, now, Motorola to reveal their plans for smartwatches featuring the software.We have already checked out LG's G Watch. Now, we can look at the Motorola Moto 360.
And there isn't much to tell because the company hasn't disclosed the specifications of the device, and probably won't even at the upcoming Hangount event set to discuss the gadget at length.
The Moto 360 has a round display, a metallic casing, a stem-like control on the side, and probably more than one color option, maybe even etched patterns.
Where the LG G Watch could be a device intended for mainstream customers, Motorola Moto 360 might be more of a luxury piece. We'll have to wait until the hardware details emerge to be sure.
Voice control will probably be included, along with motion-based gesture tracking, maybe.
Availability is expected this summer, which is actually surprising because, unlike the gadgets revealed at Google's Android Wear announcement, Motorola isn't still stuck in the device mockup stage. There already are prototypes of the Moto 360, if we understand things correctly, so it's unexpected that the ETA wasn't set for a month or two sooner (estimated time of arrival).
