Motorola reveals 10 finalists of its Moto 360 Watch Face Design Contest
Last month, Motorola kicked off a contest that asked designers to create a watch face for its upcoming Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch. The first phase of the contest is now over, and Motorola selected 10 final designs (from a total of more than 1,000 submissions). In the second phase of the contest, the designs will gave to gather votes on Google+, and the one that gets the most of them will win. Motorola will offer a Moto 360 smartwatch to the winner, and $50 Google Play gift cards to each of the other 9 finalists.

The 10 final designs “may be used by Motorola at its sole discretion as a watch face for the Moto 360” - so we might see it on the commercial version of the smartwatch. All the designs are included in the slideshow below (and, of course, you can let us know which one you like best). 

The Moto 360 might cost $249 when it launches later this year. Before that, LG’s G Watch will most probably become the world’s first Android Wear device, as it’s supposed to be released in early July.

Out of these I would go for 7.
That one is just too sleek!

I really like 3 but 4 is also pretty good. They are easy to read and show a lot of things, especially 3...

Same here. I don't need an overly complicated clock face.

I only see 3 as the one that is not too busy but yet still useful.

The others seem to either get caught up in uni-functionality or such a flashy display that it's easy to miss what is being displayed without giving it thought at what you're seeing.

There should be a number 6 on the bottom of 4's clock face. Also, what will happen when the hands on 4's clock face get down to the icons? Will it look messy and will the hands go in front or behind the icons? Let's hope they figure something out to make it look good...

They all look great, hard to decide which is best.

Shut up and take my money!

I haven't bothered to wear a watch ever since I started carrying a cellphone - but for THIS, yeah, I'll start wearing a watch again.

3,4 or 5 for me.
If it's software, why not all of them?

Just release a kit for consumers to make their own.

Why can't they let the consumer choose the one they like? Can't they have multiple clock faces loaded onto the watch so that each person can choose their own?

I SO want this watch. Total Geekdom, but the Moto design is just so right. You could spend a few hundred on a decent watch, or you could spend a few hundred on this and it does so much more.

where's casio? are they gonna sit around and let these phone makers take over the watch market? they've been making semi-smart watches for decades

None of these designs really seems all that great. Interesting, different, yes. Something nice to use every day? Not so much.

I concur with those who have already requested the ability to make your own watch... that is really the ticket that would get me to buy one of these. Not because I care about a smartwatch. But because I get to design my own watch.

Sorry this may sound noobish, but I haven't heard an explanation for the why the bottom of the display isn't a full circle?

#3, but what resolution would it need to look good?

#3 is the best one can't wait to see it in person

#3 is exactly how a smartwatch should look.
