Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch makes its late night television debut
The Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch might be getting ready for its launch. The timepiece made an unannounced trip to the Tonight Show, although it wasn't introduced to the large television audience. Actually, it was strapped to the wrist of Joshua Topolsky, editor-in-chief of The Verge. Topolsky was on the Tonight Show to show off some new technology.

While Topolsky displayed a new Lytro camera and a new virtual reality game, the watch on his wrist went unnoticed. A closer look at it shows the familiar circular face of the Moto 360. At one point, the wearable lights up, showing off the face of the watch with a soft neon glow.

The Moto 360 will be one of the first wearables to be powered by Android Wear, which is a version of Android designed specifically for wearables. We could hear more about the device and Android Wear at Google I/O, which is scheduled to take place June 25th and June 26th in San Francisco.

It definitely looks like 360 and as far as I'm concerned there are no copies announced.

Watches with large faces have been in for a while now. The Moto doesn't look any bigger than those.

It seems to me that it's only an extension of Google Now on your wrist. For the same price Pebble Steel offers a lot more options including an app shop on the Play Store.

You just like to pile on assumption on assumption, huh?

Mind you, I'm just a casual observer of smart watches (I don't care to wear a normal watch, either), so I'm not biased toward any of these smart watches.

I just find it funny that people can already write something off before its even unveiled or even leaked in any sort of substantial detail.

JT was on the Verge in a video, pleading to see the watch close up, not long ago while Moto's guy acted coy, stating he couldn't. The whole thing an act obviously.

Now tht Motorola made moto 360
All companies will try their hands on Round faced smartwatches
Such a shame seeing a struggling company like motorola actually come up with something and then have it copied by other big companies :/
