MOTO 360 WATCH – A quick Review:
Watch out, Samsung Galaxy Gear ! Because Motorola is all geared to take head-on with Samsung’s premium Bluetooth watch, which is currently priced at, well, a hefty sum for which you could probably get yourself an Armani !
With the vision of making a compelling device, Motorola has chosen to stick to the conventional design of watches and has come up with something completely unexpected. Presenting the Moto 360, a Bluetooth device which looks, feels and most importantly, functions, as a watch. A circular dial with 46 mm diameter gives the 360 a classier look in comparison to the Gear 2.
We don’t have an exact update on the specifications of this contraption, but analysts suggest use of Moto X’s “Active Screen” functionality on a crisp organic LED screen. This also means you can check info, notifications etc. without waking up the device. Motorola has claimed to use premium materials in the construction of the 360, and it will be offered in many more wristbands, especially metallic bands, which was probably something Samsung should have taken into consideration before releasing the Galaxy Gear 2.
Judging by the fact that Motorola entered the UK market and claimed 7% of the smartphone market share within months of releasing the Moto G, we can expect a high end premium watch which will function as a powerful accessory to the smartphones. A wide range of compatibility options can be expected as essentially this is still a Google device, and it should be supporting the horde of Android devices.
Moto 360 is up for grabs this summer, and judging by the looks of it, the Galaxy Gear 2 has a lot of catching up to do.
