Motorola rumored to release Moto 360 at Moto X+1 unveiling

Motorola Moto X

Motorola is a bit later than the others in bringing an Android Wear smartwatch to the world, but seeing the general response towards the Moto 360 leaves me with no doubt in my mind that it’s the most anticipated Android Wear device that’s been announced. It’ll definitely be worth the wait, so long as Android Wear in general lives up to the hype.

However, a new rumor claims that the Moto 360 will be released during the announcement of the Moto X+1, which will be during the “end of the summer.” So we should see it around August. The rumor also states that the watch will be sold through Moto Maker and will feature either a black or steel-colored body and a choice of wrist strap. And in usual Motorola fashion, more wrist straps will be available as time goes on.

If this rumor ends up true, the Moto 360 isn’t too far out. Since the folks from Google I/O are still waiting for their Moto 360 as well, we’re all excited to find out the release date. And of course I’m excited for the Moto X+1 to be unveiled. Will you be picking up a Moto 360, or will you get impatient and get an LG G Watch or Samsung Gear Live?

    Ordered up my Gear Live already. I can make it work for me and it has a lot of potential. And, honestly, I think it looks nicer than the the LG or the Moto360.

      I agree, but that’s an individual opinion, the other positive the Samsung has it it’s own watch is on version two, and it’s really nice (even if it is tizen), shame it’s galaxy only. So this Samsung watch looks nice.

      360is going to streal the headlines soon tho.

      I love my Galaxy S4 but I just can’t imagine wearing their or LGs smartwatch. Personally I want something that looks more like a watch which is why I’m waiting for the 360.

      Samsung definitely does have an edge though since they have the most experience when it comes to smart watches.

    The ’360′ as it will be known has much more fashion appeal. I’m waiting.

    I was hoping we wouldn’t need to wait until August for the release of the 360. Rather, I was hoping for an early July release, but oh well. :/

    Summer ends September 22nd this year…

    MotoX was released in the 1st week of August last year and its predecessor wont be too far off from that date. But of course there is that Pre-order and 2 week waiting period before you actually get your hands on it. Definitely worth the wait though.

    I sold my FitBit in anticipation of the 360 release. July would be great, but August is looking more likely.
