Motorola unveiled its Moto 360 smartwatch in March at about the same time when we got a glimpse of Google's Android Wear OS. At the moment, it is the only smartwatch in the market which has come out from a big phone manufacturer and has a round screen. As far as the design is concerned, this one seems to be the best one out there till yet.
Unfortunately, we have no idea about what is packed inside because so far we have only seen the pictures and we only have an idea about the design. However, more details are expected to come in at Google's I/O which is coming on June 25 and that is when Motorola is expected to detail the Moto 360.From what we managed to get out of the latest reports, the smartwatch is going to be priced at €249 and it will launch in early July.
The Moto 360 is somewhat similar to Samsung's Tizen-based Gear 2 but it will not be able to make any calls or take pictures. But we are expecting it to be capable enough because it is going to interact with the entire Android OS and its Google Now services.
