A closer look at the Moto 360

By Adam Zeis on 25 Mar 2014 12:38 pm

Motorola unveiled their Android Wear Moto 360 less than a week ago, but we hadn't really seen all the angles of the device. Even during the Hangout with Jim Wicks, we weren't able to get in very close to the actual device to see any of the goods.

Some more images of the Moto 360 have popped up however that now show a bit more of what we're looking for โ€” though they also still leave a fair amount to the imagination. Most of the specs are still up in the air, but we do know that the Moto 360 will have a sapphire glass, OLED display. The power button is said to be able to actually wind the watch as well, though the time can be set using the touchscreen. Various colors and band options will be available, adding to the customization that should make the Moto 360 a big seller.

We're definitely excited to get our hands on this one, so hopefully there will be a steady stream of info from Motorola over the coming weeks/months.

Sounds like you can play with the dial if you have an analog watch face. That is excellent. I like to set my clocks (car, oven, Wristwatch) and little ahead so I'm not late anywhere.

Kinetic energy charging with the winder? Cool. I'll be sold on this if the analog watch face is on all the time. I want to be able to just glance at the thing to know how late I am and not have to touch it or "Hello 360, what time is it?." If it will show analog and digital simultaneously, I can retire my collection of Armitrons. Incorporate a FitBit brain and I'll continue to keep my distance from elevators. I'm probably just dreaming and will have to have my wrist extended.

As much as I probably won't be getting this as I'm primarily a BlackBerry user, I really am looking forward to seeing one in action. But I think I'll stick with my Pebble.

Third photo it looks like the watch face highlights meetings or events. The second marks are replaced with lines blocking off two hour periods and one half hour. Pretty cool.

This is hands down the best looking smart watch so far. Good that moto finally figured out how to make a watch that actually looks like a watch. As long as the price is right, I will be picking one of these up.

Without doubt I'm in! Throw in some Dick Tracy functions in and I'll fund the project right now!

I ended up cancelling my Pebble Steel order and seeing these renderings I am happy.

Random aside: cancelled Pebble more because waiting for an order to arrive is very different than waiting to see place an order. I'll wait to see if I still want a Pebble after the supply craziness settles down... but if amazing watches like the Moto 360 are on the (far) horizon, then it's worth waiting to see what my options are later.

@keypad hear hear, but I've a note 3 you know Samsung like to lock out third party peripherals(booooo). Do they really expect me to buy something that won't work when/if I choose something else on upgrade.
