We’ve been talking a lot about smartwatches lately. Google I/O is just around the corner, and both the Moto 360 and LG G Watch are expected to be shown off. These are the first devices to run Android Wear. That is where most of the similarities end, because these two devices could not look any more different.
The LG G Watch looks like the typical 2013 smartwatch. It’s square, blocky, and not terribly attractive. Some people like the non-tradition square look. It screams “this is not a regular watch.” The Moto 360, on the other hand, is meant to blend in with the world. It has a more tradition round design that looks more like a regular watch. The 360 also seems to be made of more premium-looking materials.
These two devices will likely come out at around the same time, and they could be priced relatively close together as well. The big question for consumers will be “round or square?” What side of the fence are you on? Traditional or different? Sharp or soft? Which shape is the best for a smartwatch going forward? Do you want to see more round devices or square? Let us know in the poll and comments below!
