Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch gets first hands-on at Google I/O

Looks quite good

While both Samsung's Gear Live and LG's G Watch events were the wearable stars of Google I/O 2014, Motorola's circular Moto 360 smartwatch was probably the most interesting Android Wear powered device to appear at the event.

Engadget.com managed to spend some time with it and according to the first impressions, the Moto 360 definitely feels like a premium device with "luxurious look and feel". According to Motorola's wearable products guy, Lior Ron, the design was focused on the premium watch aesthetic as the Moto 360 aims to look like a standard watch rather than a smartwatch.

Unfortunately, like every other device at Google I/O 2014, the Moto 360 was also running Android Wear in a demo mode so there is not much to see regarding in terms of actual features, but it surelly looks good.

While the LG G Watch is already up for pre-order and should ship on July 7th, the Motorola Moto 360 will launch "later this summer" and Motorola still did not officially announce the price of it.
