Google Watch prototype of a smartwatch made by Motorola
Motorola and Google have designed the prototype for a smartwatch
Just before the beginning of MWC new rumors for the smartwatch by Google surfaced on the web. According to sources the timepiece by Google will be presented during the developers’ conference I/O in the summer. The gossips revealed that LG is the manufacturer that is teaming up with the mobile giant for the launching of the smartwatch. Recently a new leak with photos of the alleged prototype of Google Watch appeared on the Internet.
The guys from Android Police shared the images of the depicted smartwatch Google-branded. The interesting about the depicted device is that it is made by Motorola instead of LG. Rumors say that the prototype of the Motorola-made smartwatch was planned to be released as part of the Nexus line. The particular device was manufactured in 2013. The leaksters reveal that the model was supposed to be named Google Watch.
Recently Motorola confirmed that it is planning to release its own model smartwatch. The company did not reveal further details about the specs of the device. We only got the confirmation that the smartwatch will be launched in 2014. The depicted prototype is an interesting gadget that reminds to the Motorola’s fitness tracker the MOTOACTV. It comes with a rubber band. The square display makes the smartwatch a bit bulky but as the same time it seems to provide enough space for working with the screen. The displayed options on the screen include Developer mode, 3 Bit mode Apps and Date & Time settings. The leak with the photo does not reveal any details about the hardware or the software of the prototype.
The most interesting about the software of the gadget is the look of the icons suggesting more expanded functionality of the device. For instance you can see the icon with running person/mic icons on the volume rocker which replace the simple “+” and “-“. It is still a mystery whether Google is continuing with the development of the project or if it has been canceled.
