Re: Another one?
As a watch, it also looks too thick.

Re: Another one?
Yes, I'm not seeing a compelling use case here. I get that device makers need to start pushing these products to get in on the wave of wearables, but where's the killer app?

I just don't think it has been created. But then again, in order for it to be created companies like Motorola need to get product on the shelves.

Technical changes...
Not good, Motorola. The anticipation has been high for the 360 with AMOLED and Sapphire Glass. AMOLED will be necessary for blacks dark enough to make the clock face look like a real watch face. LCD can't produce dark enough blacks and this will diminish the value and beauty of the device.

No thanks, Motorola. I'll wait to see what Samsung comes up with in a round smartwatch.

Another one?
It doesn't seem to do much. I hope the heart rate sensor actually works. So far, none of those on phones or watches are usable.
