    Motorola just updated their blog about their wearable device. Here's the website. http://moto360.motorola.com/

    Says it will be released in the Summer.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what this will able to do and if it'll be worth the cost.

    I hope they come out with a version for us ladies because that thing is way too big for me.

    I wonder if it'll be released along side the Moto X2?

    Color me impressed--far better looking than anything available so far, and actually looks like a watch.

    That being said, I still anticipate using an iPhone at that time and am not holding my breath for compatibility. Regardless, a big step up in quality and utility.

    I'm genuinely excited about this. I just hope it doesn't end up being too thick.

    That's leather? I didn't read all of the details on their website, assumed from the picture is was some sort of synthetic material. Regardless, the metal band looks far nicer, complements the actual watch nicely, IMO.

    Now this is what a smartwatch should look like.

    Finally, a decent looking smartwatch that's actually in the right orientation (unlike that idiotic Smart Fit watch).

    I don't think any of the images that were posted are the leather band.

    That bottom picture is the leather band according to Motorola's press pics. I have yet to read anything that says they are making a rubber band at all for the smartwatch. Looks to me like they are trying to keep a premium look and if they go with a plastic band I think it would cheapen it.

    I know it's only a render but that is one ugly a$$ leather band.

    I think it is meh. :eek: I would personally take the metal band one, if given a choice, but I think Motorola is taking note of the skin irritation issues (and recalls of products) caused by the plastic on the FitBit Force and select Canon camera's over the past 6 months.

    Might just be the first smart watch design I'd actually wear. I'm interested.

    At the bottom of the website, it says it will come in a "selection of styles" so maybe they'll have better looking bands.

    Motorola.. please make this compatible with iOS. Apple.. please please allow 3rd parties to integrate.

    Well.. scratch that. Apple, please make a better looking watch! The bar has been set.

    Wonder what the battery life is like? Hopefully I'm just blind and they mentioned it somewhere on their website (which I didn't see)..

    If (and that is a big if) Google can deliver, I will probably switch.
    This is the first time I have gotten fed up with Apple and stagnation.
    Hell, I have been waiting to buy 10 new MacMinis for MONTHS now. Its almost as if Apple doesn't even want my money.
