Motorola is breaking into the wearables market today with the launch of the Moto 360 smartwatch, billed by the company as a modern timepiece that, needless to say, is very technologically advanced.
Like most other smartwatches on the market, the device connects to the wearer’s mobile device, displaying content such as calendar notifications and text messages and even giving directions to a particular destination. Much of the functionality is activated by just talking to the watch, according to Dickon Isaacs, design director at Motorola. For example, the wearer just has to say “Navigate to home,” and, over time, the watch, similar to Google Glass, will learn things such as the wearer’s address and behavior patterns.
