The Moto 360 is an Android-based smartwatch announced by Motorola in 2014. It is one of the first to be announced with Android Wear, a modified version of Android designed specifically for smartwatches and other wearables.
The Moto 360 is said to come with a round face design. The notification system will be based on 'Google Now' technology, enabling it to accept, receive, transduce and ultimately process verbal commands of audio frequency, given by the user.
Moto 360 is said to be available in various designs across the globe, starting in the US in Summer 2014.
The wristwatch has been through several evolutions since it first became a popular fashion accessory more than a 100 years ago. From mechanical to electronic movements, analog to digital faces, the wristwatch has been reinvented several times over, but the basic design has endured for a century because of its elegance and usefulness ‘at a glance.’ Our vision for Moto 360 was to celebrate that history as we reimagined the wristwatch for the future.
Moto 360 keeps you on time and up to date without taking you out of the moment or distracting you, telling you what you need to know before you know you need it through subtle alerts and notifications. With just a twist of the wrist you can see who’s emailing or calling, what time your next meeting is or a friend’s latest social post.
Moto 360 also responds to your voice. Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions like who won the Stanford vs. New Mexico game or what time your flight leaves, or to get stuff done like scheduling an appointment, sending a text, setting an alarm or taking a note.
Most importantly, Moto 360’s iconic design, featuring a round face and premium materials, feels comfortable and familiar on your wrist. It’s everything you need, with a look that you want.
