Motorola to host live Hangout on Air to talk Moto 360 design

Tune in Wednesday, March 19 to watch Jim Wicks talk about the design of the new wearable

Motorola just dropped the bombshell of Moto 360 on us moments ago, and now we'll have a better idea of how it was designed tomorrow with a Hangout on Air hosted by lead designer Jim Wicks. The Hangout will kick off at 11am PT / 2pm ET tomorrow, March 19th, and will focus primarily on the design of Moto 360 — the craftsmanship, style and features that Moto says make it "unlike any watch on the market today."

You can bet we're adding this one to our calendars, and will be seeing what Jim has to say about this new Android Wear device from Motorola.

  • Great now there wont be monopoly for samsung finally some competition out there and choices! Posted via Android Central App
  • Not to mention, something that looks great.
  • Exactly! This moto watch is something I'll actually wear.
  • Amen to that.
  • Looks good. Posted via Android Central App
  • Now, that is a design I am willing to strap on my wrist. Posted via Android Central App
  • If moto is putting this kind of effort into the new moto x I do not see how any other company can compete for my heart.
  • Yep. Agreed.
  • I'll be watching this one. :)
  • I'm on my way too Jared Motorola,I'm gonna marry you :-D "I'll stop buying smartphones when they make one smarter than me."Where's the stylus pen for the new One?
  • Oh Wow!! Now that's pretty sweet!
  • Take my money Posted via Android Central App
  • Like I said on another site,.... This Moto watch makes the Samsung Galaxy Gear look like it was made from Legos.
  • Very true Posted via Android Central App
  • Yea, by the time it launches, Samsung would be in 3rd gen of Gear products and would have sold millions maybe. I remember Glass a lot, announced with so much enthusiasm and still a vapourware. End of day most of these companies will be fighting for scraps and Apple and Samsung would be the only ones making real money.
  • This has me way now excited about smart watches then Samsung could have ever done. Attention to detail pays off! People want something to wear that is elegant and not goofy looking. Looking at you Samsung! Posted via Android Central App
  • You know, I've been intrigued by smart watches in the past, but this is the first time I've been genuinely excited about a smart watch. If this thing works well and doesn't cost a small fortune, I think Moto has absolutely *NAILED* it.
  • I am hoping for $200 but I have a feeling its going to be $300...either way I will be setting aside money for this one.
  • Agreed. *This* watch I think is probably actually worth $300, though ;) That said, they're going to have to try and keep the price down to get real, "mainstream" success with it, I think, even with it being as beautiful as it is.
  • I think you need to revise your weekly poll
  • Motorola - A Lenovo Company Posted via Android Central App
  • If this is represents what will be released, I will be buying one for sure. When it comes to smartwatches form is just as important as function and this right here definitely works for me.
  • I want one of these. Really hope it brings the extension of functionality we have all been looking for!
  • When will they launch it to public? Posted via Android Central App
  • If this is the watch it looks awesome!!!
  • I'm buying it. This looks awesome! Posted via Android Central App
  • Hopefully it isn't too bulky.. Posted via Android Central App
  • The Posted via Android Central App
  • That's actually what it looks like? This shows promise.
  • I am definitely tuning in. Watch is crazy. That is how you design watches. Great job Moto Posted via Android Central App
  • This watch looks fantastic. I think I may have just changed my opinion on smart watches. Hopefully it has good battery life Posted via Android Central App
  • Pretty sure the chick in the video Motorola posted is wearing one and its not bulky at all! Looks like a watch just like it should. Mike
  • Assuming no obvious fails, like terrible battery, or difficulty being able to see the screen quickly when needed, or being $500, this is my next smartwatch. I've loved my Pebble since the moment I got it, but it was clearly a stopgap to a full solution. This is that solution.
  • Host what??
  • These watches are going to make hanging onto phones longer a lot easier. The 2 year contract that everyone seems to be getting away from isn't so bad when you can get a new phone one year and a new smart watch the next.
  • I love the classic look of this for a guy
  • So let's see, Samsung leads the way, again, and because a new shiney thing comes out they get railed on? Is that what it is? I HATE the GG, think it is as worthless as the Nexus 4, but let's give kudos where they are due. The first, and usually the second generation of anything is gonna kinda suck. The guy who takes no chance at all, sits back and improves on an idea is always going to come out on top. All that being said, it is gonna be tough later this year to choose a wearable.
  • Assuming the functionality is top-shelf, this Moto 360 brings the style I desire to begin wearing watches again.
