The wearable category is in a booming pace, as we see a smartwatch being teased already by Motorola. Named the Moto 360, the smartwatch is going to be powered by Android Wear. Yes, the same OS which was just announced by Google. Things happen pretty quickly once there is a source available, and here’s an example of that.
It’s time for a watch that looks and feels great and gives you the information you need, when you need it. – That’s how Motorola introduces this. But for the features given, it’s nothing really new. But the final point – it’s going to be Android in the end, so you are going to see a lot of possibilities with this. As for the Moto 360 showcased by the company, it would let you keep up with time and date, and would keep you updated with the stuff you wanted to know on time. There are various alerts and notifications shown on the smart watch, and with the twist of the wrist, you would be able to see a lot other details such as the next meeting, latest social updates from your friends etc.

There is a lot you can ask, from your flight details to a live score, from scheduling an appointment to setting an alarm. It’s more like the features of the smartphone getting into the smartwatch, and that’s where the advancement in the technology is seen.
