Motorola has just said that they will be releasing a new smartwatch before the end of the year, but according to some leaked images, they may have also been previously working on a Google device. Rumors point to LG now being behind the hardware for Google's smartwatch, but from the looks of things, Motorola had gone pretty far in creating a prototype device.
As seen in the images here, the device looks pretty standard. We can see a silicone band that looks to be removable, but it's packing a secret USB connection inside that would most likely be used for sync and charging. There are some buttons located on the top of the face as well as a capacitive button on the face itself. The display shows off some developer functions but not much aside from that.
It's unclear if Motorola is going forward with a similar design for their own watch or if this has been scrapped totally. In any case, we should see offerings from both Google and Motorola sometime this year.
