Voice is not enough: Motion is key to Android Wear

Google and Motorola rolled out their joint vision of Android Wear, the Moto 360, and the future of wearables on Tuesday. (LG also gave us a taste of its upcoming G Watch.) Based on the few videos and all the information released for developers, it appears that Google's wearable platform is a fancy port of Google Now "cards" and voice control in a pretty spiffy, new form factor.

While this is the focus of the developer preview out this week, don't be fooled. Android Wear will be much more than just some full-faced watches that respond to speech, taps, and swipes. For the past few years now, Google has been telegraphing that it is much more interested in how we ambulate our entire bodies, not just our index fingers and vocal cords. … Read more

Moto 360 smartwatch to ship in limited quantity, says report

Motorola's upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch, which will use Google's Android Wear, might not be readily available, a new report claimed.

The Moto 360's circular design and thus, circular-shaped components, make it exceedingly difficult to manufacture it in large quantities, Android Headlines reported on Wednesday, citing a person who claims to have knowledge of the launch plans. Therefore, Motorola will either have to deal with limited supply in all the countries it plans to launch the smartwatch, or it will have to cut back on launch locations out of the gate, the report claimed.
