ECHLN, 02 Dec 2016Its because Samsung and Apple make superior smartwatches and no one really wants anything else.As I've said long ago, the whole this 'smartwatch category' is BS,....invented and forced by Wall Street.
Only beautiful, slim, functional arm-bands (not only fitness trackers, though) make some sense in the future. With simple displays battery-efficient, and bendable batteries. But Wall Street are not interested there, because of the price.
If we are talking about smartwatch anyhow, the only one OEM that made it right is Samsung, and developing and innovating.
Apple has nothing there, but counting on colors and such.
The only thing that Apple have is fateful ifans, holding few apple-stocks, to care and fight about. LOL
"We don't "see enough pull in the market"
Well duh. Motorola only released the Moto watch in very few markets, and even when they reached other countries, they only do discounts in western markets like US (not sure about European countries). So it's OBVIOUS that they don't see enough pull, since they were not pushing it to begin with.
Moto had something going with the 2nd gen. The Moto360 remains my favorite Android watch.
JohnNy L, 02 Dec 2016Anyways no one buys Moto phones these days, let alone Moto smartwatches..And you're saying this based on what? Moto z only has beew well received and it has reached the million milestone months ago. Same with g series. The first moto smart watch is still one of the best looking

Note7 owner, 02 Dec 2016Samsung watches are too good, there's no need for moto watches in the market. True

JohnNy L, 02 Dec 2016Anyways no one buys Moto phones these days, let alone Moto smartwatches..Moto z sold million plus phones since September. What is your point?

-- Check out eBay.in or eBay.com. I myself bought Apple TV 4 off Amazon.in.
-- Phones can only "consume" content, that's thier strength ofcourse. They can "create" content only in a very limited fashion. So no true PC replacement at least for next 5-8 years.

None of the smart components are available in india and in india TV's are super costly at least 2 to 2.5 times the pricing in US. Thats why there is a need for good smart TV in budget segment.
2. Smartphone's are doing way better job of replacing PC's.
3. My point is that there is a lot companies can do to modernise TV's but may be due to low profitability growth has been slow.
& then in the far future moto won't release any phones thus lenovo killing Motorola
Anyways no one buys Moto phones these days, let alone Moto smartwatches..
I remember the beginning of the year, every tech site said the "big thing" of 2016 will be smartwatches, premium mid range phones and VR. None of them were successful and smartwatch sales even slowed down after the Big Bang of the Apple Watch was out. I don't think we will see a revolution like the first iPhone in the next years and that also isn't bad. I mean we still have so many issues with today's phones like battery life, durability, software updates and only when we overcame those, we will be ready for something new
"We don't "see enough pull in the market"??
- one more device to charge that barely lasts a day on a charge
- very thick, should be 2x thinner
- focus on "health" and "fitness" while this interests only a few
- crazy overpriced. Should be 100 EUR max
Bummer, I was actually expecting the new gen 360 within Q1 2017, I got 2nd gen myself and it is really useful for me, at least they should give an OTA update to Android Wear 2 for all 360's.

Well, unless they can pack more useful stuff such that for that short period that i have no access to my phone i can still do the more important stuff while battery still lasting about 3 days. Sometimes i go grocery shopping i just dun wanna have to reach out for my phone carrying so many things :(

A stupid accesorry for nerds, they will never be able to ... moreThe only reason for a smartwatch to exist for me is for all the fitness tracking sensor like the one in the Fitbit Charge 2 or the Samsung Gear Fit 2. Other than that, a smartphone will do just fine.
