Motorola's Moto 360 did not leave any stone unturned to set itself apart in this space by showcasing a round watch design. Other smartwatch makers have been offering rectangular or square designs due to logical impediments.
The circular components or round dials make them extremely difficult to manufacture in large quantities. Motorola might have to endure a limited supply in all the countries it plans to launch the smartwatch. The other significant option is to cut back on launch locations, CNet claimed.
According to reports, the circular components and boards are currently not very common and the chips required for the watches are not designed to get accommodated in small circular housings.
Motorola Moto 360 is believed to launch this summer in the U.S., followed by other countries. Motorola did not shed light on the pricing or the features department. So we might have to wait a little more to gain access to those details.
Could this smartwatch be the game changer in the wearable devices sphere? Are you planning on buying Moto 360?
