Hot on the heels of Google’s release of the Android Wear preview SDK, Motorola has announced a smartwatch powered by Android’s UI for wearables dubbed the Moto 360.
The device’s hardware evokes a classic timepiece, with a premium metal body and a visually stunning round display. On the software front, the Moto 360 will feature the standard array of Google Now elements – like “Ok Google” voice commands and contextual cards – central to Android Wear, in addition to a wrist-twisting gesture which will allow you to quickly view e-mail, call, and appointment notifications.
Pricing and release details on the device are scarce, but Motorola is aiming for a Summer 2014 launch window. For those interested in the Moto 360 (and who isn’t?), head on over to Motorola’s website to sign up for more info.
