Android Developers post shows off the LG G Watch and Moto 360
We're getting very close to the announcement and release of the first Android Wear devices. We've been seeing a few interesting leaks about the LG G Watch, and today Google's Android Developer blog has posted an interesting article that happens to also show a couple teasers of the LG G Watch and the Moto 360.

The post itself is a description of building an app for Android Wear which would provide the user with a walking tour of a place. It shows how developers will be able to see their apps in action because the Android Design Preview will mirror what you're building on a connected wearable. It also shows that the difference between designing for the square G Watch and the circular Moto 360 is pretty small, just a matter of tweaking the metrics on a layout with no need to create two layouts. 

The devices on the developers' wrists actually look pretty good. They don't look too bulky or odd. The Moto 360 actually looks slightly bigger, but without seeing the full scale of the man wearing the device, it's hard to judge exactly what to expect. Either way, we've got less than one month to go!

Is it me or are square watches ugly (unless done right [which in this case it wasn't done right])?

Moto 360 puts this McDonalds kids toy and Samsung junk gear to shame

Thought the same thing. Moto360 should be called MotoWristSaucer the damn thing is so big.

Ditto. On one hand, it's big, but the screen will be easier to use with the size of the display.

Because the Moto360 is marketed towards lumberjacks and body builders? :)

You guys still think that 360 looks like a normal watch? I didn't think so... It will be a few years until these devices can actually be the size that we want them to be.

That's so BS. I've used OS X and Windows, with many laptops from many OEMs, and Macs have nothing to shame both hardware and software wise. And btw almost everybody at Google uses Macs.

im surprised people like the looks of the moto 360, its just too big, it looks like a spaceship on your wrist. Both watches looks like plastic kids toys in my opinion.

I think the Galaxy gear fit has the best design of all smart watches.

Sony Smart Watch 2 is the best in design and compact too..

"he circular Moto 360 is pretty small" Really are you looking at the same pictures as everyone else, that is a very large phone, way better looking than the LG watch, but i hope they also make a slightly smaller watch for normal male wrist sizes.
