Currently riding at the front of the technology and gadgets hype-train are wearables, and among these, no device is more hyped than the Moto360. While we have known about Motorola’s supposedly ‘revolutionary’ smartwatch for some months, all we have seen of it is a few teaser videos, and a brief appearance at the Google I/O developer conference.
The device itself will be running Android Wear, Google’s new mobile operating system designed especially for smartwatches. Unlike its competitors (the Gear Live and the LG G Watch) the Moto360 will not feature a blocky, square design. Rather it is made to imitate the look and feel of a regular luxury watch. As such, it features a round multi-touch screen similar to a clock face, as well as fashionable leather and metal bands.
Motorola, on its last legs as part of Google, had promised a Summer 2014 release, however it now seems that they will narrowly miss this target. It has been announced in the last 24 hours that Motorola will be hosting a product launch on the 4 of September, which is highly likely to include the Moto360 smartwatch.
Alongside the invitation for this event, Motorola also included pictures of the Moto G and Moto X smartphones, indicating that they may also be due for a refresh. Such phones have seen considerable popularity in the mid-range smartphone market, both for their use of standard Android, as well as their quirky aesthetic designs. Supplementing this, it is rumoured that Motorola will also be releasing some form of Bluetooth audio accessory.
Despite the rapidly approaching release date, little is known about the cost of the Moto360 or indeed any of its internal specs. Luckily, we won’t have to wait much longer, with the release little more than two weeks away.
