Winner will be announced on June 24
Moto 360 is Motorola’s first foray into the realm of smartwatches
, and it’s definitely one of the most attractive entries into this burgeoning market. The Moto 360 runs
Google’s new Android Wear operating system
and features a circular display screen.
Interest in the Moto 360 has been high, and Motorola called on everyday folks to enter a competition to design a “face” for the smartwatch. The competition started in April and finished this week with ten finalists being announced.
The winner will get to take home a Moto 360, while the nine runners-up will get a $50 Google Play gift card.
So far, the overwhelming crowed favorite is this entry from David Pascual. It has over 8741 +1s on Google+:
The current second place entry is from Layton Diament with his minimalistic “Vanishing Hour” watch face concept:
We do know that the winner will have his or her watch face included with shipping Moto 360 smartwatches, but it is unknown if any of the other finalists will see their watch faces on the production model as well.

If Google took the submissions and enabled support for themes on the watch face. Many of the submissions are good and have supporters. I still don't understand why you can't customize your interface on modern operating systems other than setting included themes.

you can customize it but there needs to be a default theme. That default theme will probably be the most used theme and therefore needs to look attractive.
Great designs but..

What everyone is not asking is what the display tech is on this watch before making designs like this. The problem is that NO ONE knows what Moto360's display resolution will be.
These designs would look great on 400dpi+ displays to get the resolution needed to draw such fine details.
I just hope the watch resolution is at least 'retina' level to have the resolution to draw the detail required of these watch designs.
The finer the detail the better looking the display.
None of these designs will look anything like what has been submitted if Moto does not deliver 'retina' class displays.
