Mike’s Surprise VR Proposal: Cardboard Cuteness

Mike’s Surprise VR Proposal: Cardboard Cuteness

Mike Rios had a really good idea. It involved a Google Cardboard virtual reality headset, a Moto 360 smartwatch, and his then-girlfriend Maggie. He wanted to ask her to marry him, and he wanted to do it in as special - and unexpected - a way as possible. To do this, he needed to transport Maggie to a virtual realm, one where her friends and family - and a mariachi band - were able to help make this marriage proposal with a truly next-level set of plans and execution.

Moto 360 successor leaked to have 360×360 resolution

Moto 360 successor leaked to have 360×360 resolution

After its initial bout of fame, the Moto 360 has seemingly faded into the background, especially with the arrival of some pretty strong contenders. That's not to say that the Moto 360 has become any less the smartwatch darling that it was, but Motorola does need to step up a bit if it wants to stay on top. A successor to that smartwatch might already be in the works, as "accidentally" leaked last month. Now a new leak has come up claiming that the next Moto 360 will have a higher resolution screen.

As we’ve yet to see what Tag Heuer can cook up for Android Wear, the Moto 360 still holds the crown of ‘most attractive Android Wear device’. A recent trip into Moto Maker only solidified its place as an Android Wear device to consider every time you may be shopping for a wearable. It might be seeing increased customization options in the future, though. A now-deleted social media post from Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing shows a new-look Moto 360, and some new accessories.

Moto 360 hits Moto Maker for custom smartwatch

Moto 360 hits Moto Maker for custom smartwatch

Motorola has added its Moto 360 to Moto Maker, allowing buyers of the smartwatch to customize it with a variety of strap, casing, and face options. The wearable has been on sale for some months now, but it's the first time the circular-faced gadget has been offered customizable from the outset. In total, there are 27 physical combinations that can be pieced together, though that number gets even bigger if you take custom digital watchfaces into account as well.

Motorola boss: more wearables coming, maybe even a new phone

Motorola boss: more wearables coming, maybe even a new phone

With Motorola, you pretty much know what you’re getting. There are a few really good smartphones that make a mark at their respective price points, and a wearable. There are even a few neat accessories. At Mobile World Congress this week, Motorola President Rick Osterloh said nothing was going to change, either. Motorola will continue to iterate on their stuff, but will stay their course. Interestingly, Osterloh also suggests Motorola is probably done with tablets, a sector best left to Lenovo, in his view.

Motorola will let you ‘Moto Make’ a Moto 360 soon

Motorola will let you ‘Moto Make’ a Moto 360 soon

Customization has become a hallmark for Motorola, where users find favor with Moto X’s open-source design platform. That choice is about to come to wearables, too. Motorola is about to unleash a Moto Maker suite for their Moto 360, which allows for customization almost all the way through. You can choose your casing, where Motorola gives you options for silver, black, or champagne. You’ll also get to decide on other visual features, but don’t get too excited — it’s not total customization.

Motorola teases something new arriving next week

Motorola teases something new arriving next week

Though Jony Ive may disagree, Motorola has a lot going for them. After a brief stint at Google to recalibrate themselves, they’re now under the auspices of Lenovo. They’re doing really good work, too, with the new Moto X winning much praise while the Moto 360 makes a home on wrists. That tandem might not be enough, though, and the company has begun hinting that more is on the way. In an email to some press, Moto says they’re ready to seed something new.

Android Wear may run out of time as Apple Watch nears

Android Wear may run out of time as Apple Watch nears

Android Wear may have beaten Apple Watch to market, but demand for smartwatches running Google's OS hasn't been as rampant as some predicted, new research released today suggests. Over 720,000 Android Wear watches shipped in 2014, Canalys suggests, and while some like Motorola's Moto 360 can't be produced fast enough to meet demand, the overall diagnosis is that the smartwatch market is still up for grabs. While the research firm appears confident that Google will continue to improve Android Wear, the lingering question is whether those enhancements can come quickly enough.

Apple Watch’s premium fashion price ok with consumers, says survey

Apple Watch’s premium fashion price ok with consumers, says survey

In 2007, Apple kicked the smartphone industry into high gear and really got consumers interested in touchscreen devices with the original iPhone. A similar situation could be said for the Apple Watch and how the adoption rate of wearables may start to take off after its release early next year. A new survey from First Insight, a retail research company, seems to indicate that people are very interested in the Apple Watch, but much more as a fashion item than other smartwatches.

Gold Moto 360 hands-on – Let’s talk smartwatch luxury

Gold Moto 360 hands-on – Let’s talk smartwatch luxury

Can a smartwatch be stylish? That's an argument set to run and run, but of the options on the market right now, a majority would probably point to the Moto 360 as the poster-child for looks, even if its Android Wear OS is still a work-in-progress. It was joined today as a range with a Champagne Gold version complete with a thinner, 18mm band, along with a range of new leather straps, so I brought my very best wrist along to try out Motorola's take on an altogether glitzier wearable.
