Moto 360 also responds to your voice. Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions like who won the Stanford vs. New Mexico game or what time your flight leaves, or to get stuff done like scheduling an appointment, sending a text, setting an alarm or taking a note.

Most importantly, Moto 360’s iconic design, featuring a round face and premium materials, feels comfortable and familiar on your wrist. It’s everything you need, with a look that you want.

Moto 360 will be available in a variety of styles globally in Summer 2014, starting in the US. To learn more about Moto 360 and stay up to date on product news, click here.

Say hello to the round keyboard: Minuum creates keyboard app for Moto 360 watch face

Fleksy recently issued a version of its app for the Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch and Minuum’s keyboard has been available on square-faced smartwtaches for a while now, too. However, the Moto 360 presents a unique problem for keyboards with its round face. Keyboards are almost always rectangular or sometimes square, but they are rarely round. Minuum sought to solve this problem with a new design that it hopes will convince smartwatch wearers to use its keyboard instead.

Minuum’s keyboard is known for being super small and minimalistic, but it too, is rectangular. Now, the company has created a new UI for round smartwatches, which takes the rectangular keyboard and turns it into a horse shoe shape. The letter keys circle around the bottom of the watch face, while the suggestions appear along the top. The actual text of what you are typing shows up in a white semi circle, covering the bottom half of the watch face.

The first third-party Android Wear keyboard curves along the Moto 360′s round face

Unlike LG’s G Watch and the still-unnamed Samsung smartwatch, the Moto 360 will have a round face, which may pose problems for keyboard designers who are used to rectangular screens. While the post doesn’t detail exactly how the keyboard will work, the illustrated GIF shows Minuum’s trademark ribbon keyboard curving along the bottom edge of the watch face.

Minuum is no stranger to putting its keyboard on unusual devices: The keyboard is available for Samsung’s Tizen-based Galaxy Gear smartwatches and Google Glass, and the company will release a keyboard for the iPhone when iOS 8 is released this fall. Plus, Minuum has clearly thought a good deal about how to implement a touch keyboard on a small screen. The company warns that due to limitations built into Android Wear, its keyboard might not work at launch, but full input choice should eventually be built in.
