New Moto 360 teaser talks about the round design

New Moto 360 teaser talks about the round design
Information about the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch has been in short supply; and, while Motorola wants to tease the device and keep up interest, it doesn't want to give away anything. That means that we're getting another teaser video that talks about the design of the watch, but doesn't really give away anything else that you might want to know.

The video reinforces ideas that Motorola has mentioned basically anytime the Moto 360 comes up: the uniqueness and tradition of the round design. The round design is unique (right now) in the realm of smartwatches, but has been the standard when it comes to wristwatches. So, Motorola is talking up the comfort of the round design and the fashion. 

Unfortunately, we're not getting anything else that we want to know, like specs, price, or release date. The assumption is that it will be announced and released along with the Moto X+1 in August, but until then, it doesn't look like we'll get anything solid.

Very nice, but priced in a pretty different category.

Very true. If you pre order it before december or something you can get a huge discount. Don't quote me on this though.

if they don't hurry and release this soon people will get the others and when they realize it's the same as the others they won't get it just like one plus one great idea execution I am happy with my galaxy live unless the moto has a speaker or bigger battery other then looks is not work it

that black bar on the watch screen looks ugly and out of place.

MKBHD's hands-on explains it: instead of putting a black bezel all around the screen,moto decided to go with the bar.

I don't recall earlier images of the watch having the annoying black mini-bezel. I guess watch faces with black backgrounds will be popular.

but it is standing out in the design and looking real bad, could actually be a potential deal breaker for me

Doesn't make it any less uglier. Remember HTC M8?

Pricing, compatibility ( work with certainly all Android and iOS devices < via Wifi/Bluetooth) and release date is key. Motorola must not make the mistake they made with the Xoom tablet by over pricing it even though it had greater capabilities then the OG iPad. The price must be no more then 249.00 USD to sell well if they price it at 199.00 USD then they will have a killer product on their hands. They must follow the Moto G and E pricing strategy and quick release to have any measure of success. If they wait to long then the Apple will get the foot hold when it releases the iWatch
