Motorola promotional videos for Moto 360 and Moto Hint appear online

As we continue to wait for official information about the launch of the Motorola‘s Moto 360, there’s some new promotional videos doing the rounds asking you to “Choose Moto 360″ and “Choose Moto Hint”.

Motorola is set to reveal a new line of products later today at a private event in Chicago.
