Can’t seem to find yourself a suitable smartwatch that combines high practicality, outstanding endurance and unique design, promising to live up to all your needs and expectations? Well, you should definitely check out Moto 360 by Motorola, due to arrive on the market in summer 2014.
A highly modern timepiece designed by Motorola and powered by Android Wear, the Moto 360 aims to celebrate the history of horology as a genuine wristwatch for the future. The Moto 360 keeps you up to date on all the essentials you may need without distracting you as it provides you with all the necessary information by subtle alerts and notifications.
Just like any other smartwatch, the Moto 360 connects with your smartphone to retrieve data and interacts with you to display calls, messages, e-mails, scheduled meetings and events, weather updates, sports scores, flight ticketing information, navigation directions based on your location, notes, alarms, social networking posts and all other information you deem relevant.
What Motorola’s smartwatch seeks to accomplish most is a heightened contextual awareness of the information you’re likely to care about and want to know, depending on the day, the time, or your location. Thanks to its new operating system, Moto 360 will allow for voice recognition and provide intuitive and applicable information delivery.
Motorola has not yet revealed the details concerning the charge options and it only said, in a Google Hangouts video with Moto 360’s lead designer Jim Wicks, that the watch does not have any charging contacts, USB or headphone ports. The Moto 360 has been announced as water-resistant, but the specificities about the amount of water it would be able to withstand have not been made public yet.
Motorola said that their smartwatch will not feature a camera but it will offer the auto-orientation option for ambidexterity and will have swappable bands, one with a metallic finish and one with a leather finish. The smartwatch will be compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 or newer versions, and will feature a heavy Google Now integration.
Design-wise, the Moto 360 will comprise a clean-looking glass-fronted round face and a 1.8-inch diameter screen, and it will be made from premium materials that will guarantee high functionality and durability and the two interchangeable watchbands will certainly cling comfortably to your wrist.
If you want a high-quality smartwatch that can handle your day-to-day essentials without much fuss, all in a beautiful sleek package, then you’d better check out Moto 360 as soon as it makes its big break on the global market this summer. [via]
