Motorola brings its "A game" to smartwatch design

We just reported earlier today that Google is going full steam ahead with wearable devices thanks to its Android Wear operating system. We’ve already seen LG’s rather bland offering with the G Watch, and now it’s Motorola’s turn.
We’re just gonna go ahead and say it — the Moto 360 blows the G Watch out of the water when it comes to esthetics. The smartwatch features a circular LCD that can display traditional analog or digital watch faces. It’s actually the first smartwatch that actually looks like a real watch that regular human beings would want to wear.

Motorola describes the device, stating:

Moto 360 keeps you on time and up to date without taking you out of the moment or distracting you, telling you what you need to know before you know you need it through subtle alerts and notifications. With just a twist of the wrist you can see who’s emailing or calling, what time your next meeting is or a friend’s latest social post...

Most importantly, Moto 360’s iconic design, featuring a round face and premium materials, feels comfortable and familiar on your wrist. It’s everything you need, with a look that you want.

Motorola is giving away much when it comes to specs (we do know, however, that it will be available this summer), but you can watch the video above and peruse over the pictures below.

Um, wow... I often have 4-5 12 ounce coffees a morning.

At my previous job (where "foo-foo" coffee drinks were free,) I often had 3-4 double (16 ounce) mochas a day.

Yet I have no problem going caffeine free for multiple weeks. (I do so every few months for 1-2 weeks, just to make sure I still can.) I feel no ill effects while off caffeine. I have in the past gone many months without having more than 1 or 2 caffeinated drinks during that time.

I just like the taste of (some) caffeinated drinks, and drink them because I enjoy them. When my last employer changed their coffee provider, I switched to mochas because I didn't like the black coffee any more. At my current employer, the black coffee is good. (The same as my prior before they switched, ironically!)

How much did you weigh at that time?

I can't drink more than 1 mocha a week without seeing visible (negative!) effects ;)
