Good comments from everyone, haters or not. I can say in my personal opinion: this watch can be the reason for me to use a watch again. Looks very nice
If u have a laptop, what possibly can a smartphone do that the laptop can't? - This was how everyone viewed the smartphone at the beginning. Technology will always evolve and we will always resist change.
you folks that don't understand the purpose of a smart watch have never tried to pull yur phone outa yur pocket while cruising down the highway at 65 mph on yur Harley have ya? or tried to check notifications or missed calls at a stop light while reving yur engine to scare all the people in cars next to ya hahahahaha all bikers would have smart watches if they weren't so nerdy ride free and die hard
Imagine getting drunk and diving into the pool. Then you realize...you forgot to take off your watch. Doh!
Not my most favorite design for a time piece.
I hope they have more than just this single design.
Motorola should team up with the Nixon watch designers. I'd definitely throw away money for one.
Bhahaha1 It's like watching an Apple add, only not of an Apple product! Nice try, Moto:))) But the original is still the best. Next, please
Even if you think smartwatches are a bit of a gimmick, this is a huge step forward from the galaxy gear.
Best looking smartphone so far. If battery life is atleast 2 weeks, it should be good. They should make a phone that you don't need to sync it to your phone. Need a smartphone that takes it's own nanosim.
It seems google put some really good effort designing watch and in my opinions all the rest of the smartphone complimenting wearables were rushed. This 360 makes me want to wear it because it looks cool.
if the actual product same as the concept, plus decent battery life + water proof + scratch-proof screen, then it'll make other smart watch look like from some cheap sci-fi movie.
Is it a gimmick? Yes. But people love gimmicks, and Google likes money.
Plus it looks freakin' nice and adds some more functionality to daily life if worn regularly. I would not feel like a lesser being sporting one of these.
As an owner of the samsung watch, the only real useful thing I find about it is that when I leave my phone somewhere around my house and someone rings, I don't have to run to answer it, that's the only time I say to myself oh so glad to have it.. otherwise.... don't buy, unless you just want it because you reckon you want it.
JJ Freiss, 18 Mar 2014I completely agree...These watches and gear are gimmicky and stupid. There is no useful purpos... moreyou can't wear your smartphone on yr wrist meaning you can't use it rock climbing, bike riding. The list is endless

There is no useful purpos... moreFor starters it can permanently display data (notifications) on your wrist, while if carrying just a phone you have to be mindful of taking it out of your pocket to see if anything was missed or what has just arrived.
It's not that hard to understand the concept.
