Back in June, Motorola displayed their Android powered watch at Google's I/O developer conference stunning everyone with it's sleek new look for Android wearable devices. Unlike all of the other watches that were showcased, the Moto360 had a rounded display that caught everybody's eye unlike the square displays around it. But today, Italian tech blogger MisterGadget presented to the world pictures of the finished design, showing off it's smooth edges and neat display that give it a classy tech look.
The most informative part about the released pictures is the docking station. This tells us that the Moto360 is wireless and receives it's energy through a wireless charger inside of the docking station. The watch has a lot of functionality allowing it to sync with your phone to allow display of messages, phone calls, alarms, a calender, weather and much more. Did I mention it tells time? The watch also responds to key phrases allowing you to use Google Voice to send text messages as well as other things. You could even make calls all without taking your phone out of your pocket if you have a bluetooth earpiece.
What Motorola was trying to accomplish when they first began the project was "to create a balance of design and functionality. The trick for us was how to interact with that technology in a simple but super intuitive way." And they have done that to the letter. It's designed with a stainless steel exclosure, IP67 waterproofing, light sensor, pedometer, and even a heart rate sensor that will always monitor your pulse, unlike Samsung's Galaxy S5 watch. It is a little thicker than the original design because of the inductive Qi wireless charging pads making an estimated 13.5mm thick and a diameter of 48mm. You can expect to see them available late this month to early September.
I don't know about you but I'm ready to buy one even though a price has not been released. It just has everything you can think of all in a elegant simple design.
