Wednesday Poll: LG G Watch R or Moto 360?

Now that the LG G Watch R, LG’s new round smartwatch (pictured above), is official, we can’t help but ask for your opinions on it. More importantly, we want to know how you think it stacks up to Motorola’s yet-to-be-fully-revealed Moto 360. Both are made of premium materials (stainless steel and leather), both look much more desirable than the rest of the Android smartwatches on the market, and both look like real watches first, smartwatches second.

The G Watch R packs in a P-OLED display and will arrive in Q4. The Moto 360 carries an edge-to-edge, almost infinity-like display, coupled with stainless and chamfered edges, but should be here much sooner than Q4.

As of tonight, with the unveiling of the G Watch R, which one are you leaning towards?

Motorola Hosts Moto 360 Giveaway Via Yo App, Mentions $249 Price Again

Next week, Motorola is set to announce availability and official pricing for the Moto 360, but before that takes place, the Chicago-based company is holding a contest via the silly “Yo” app, available for both iOS and Android devices.

With Yo, you add friends (and now companies apparently), and send a “Yo” message. That’s it. No other text or images are allowed. Just “Yo.” Once you add “MOTOROLA” as a contact in the Yo app, during the promotional period (August 27 at 3:05pm CT to August 28 at 3:01pm CT), you must send a Yo to your Motorola contact. 20 eligible entrants will be selected to possibly win a Moto 360 smartwatch.

Easy enough, right?  (more…)
