Motorola shows off the Moto 360 at Google I/O

Moto360_Macro_alt1_with text
Whenever we’ve posted anything regarding Android Wear, we’re overwhelmed by comments saying they’re waiting for the Moto 360. Despite not really having been showed off completely, the Moto 360 design seems to be the one that has sparked a large amount of peoples imaginations and desire for a ‘good’ looking Smartwatch. So, with Android Wear out in the open at Google I/O, Motorola has taken the wraps of their watch and shown it off in this hands-on video from Google I/O.

The video shows a lot of the watch, describes the materials used in its constructions (Stainless steel for the watch and leather for the band). It also shows how to activate the watch (hit the button on the side, or touch and hold the screen). The rest of the video shows watchfaces (more of which are coming this summer when the watch launches), as well as the cards notifications and voice commands.

The Moto 360 is a great looking piece of kit, a little thick, but we definitely can’t wait to get our hands on it.

What do you think of the Moto 360?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Needs to be completely waterproof, have vibration for incoming notifications, and get rid of that black like below the watch face.

Useless to me if not fully waterproof.
