While enthusiasts scream "enough already," Motorola is putting the finishing touches on its Android Wear device

The tech community is eagerly awaiting the launch of the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch, which is powered by Google’s Android Wear operating system. You could just feel the excitement during Google I/O whenever the Moto 360 was displayed. Even more telling was when it was announced that Google I/O attendees would receive either an LG G Watch or Samsung Gear Live for free — there was a slight round of “applause” from the audience.
 
However, when it was announced that the Moto 360 would also be given away for free to attendees, the crowd was definitely more pumped — almost as if they had just received a truckload of loot from “Oprah’s Favorite Things.” When it was announced earlier in the presentation that the Moto 360 wouldn’t be shipping until later this summer, the crowd was ready to pull out their pitchforks.

 
There’s no doubt that style is one of the big reasons why the Moto 360 has captured so much attention from tech enthusiasts and the press. Whereas the G Watch and Gear Live look unimaginative and decidedly “geeky,” the Moto 360 tries its best to look like a traditional timepiece.
 
In a short teaser video, Motorola explains its thought process behind the design of the Moto 360 and why the round design was chosen for its first foray into smartwatches.

 
Motorola’s project lead for the Moto 360, Lior Ron, describes that the round shape is “super comfortable” and allows for “self-expression on a wrist.”
 
By all accounts, the reviews suggest that the G Watch and Gear Live perform as you would expect for products that were seemingly rushed to the market. While Motorola’s decision to take it slow with the development and release of the Moto 360 may annoy the fans that are wiling to drop $250+ for the device, it appears that the company wants to make sure it gets it right the first time and doesn’t release an unfinished product.
