    Default Getting harder to wait for the 360

    I want the watch now !!!

    Part of my enjoyment is in being an early adopter and getting in on the ground floor. The thrill of discovery and early coolness.

    I am starting to get the itch for an impulse purchase of the Samsung, waiting is not my strong suit.

    If I wait a few months and am disappointed with the 360 I will be aggravated to say the least.

    Anybody else thinking of caving in?

    Me too. Was looking at the g watch though (due to that charging thing). Wish we had a release date.

    Stop your crying and just go pick up one them! LOL. They are not THAT expensive. If you prefer the 360 once it comes out, sell your LG/Samsung to some other person who is waiting on the next best thing. ;-)

    Oddly, I find myself going the other way. After the rather weak reviews on both the Live and the G watch, I am finding it difficult to want either. While I like the idea, it sounds like they are not quite ready yet. So, I'm (maybe not so) patiently waiting for the 360, hoping it will solve some of the issues that the Live and G watch have.

    None of these first generation watched look good. The moto 360 looks the best design wise but it is rather thick. Even with a better design the moto 360 cannot hide the fact that android wear isn't quite ready for prime time.

    We are probably one year away from where we start seeing android wear a complete complementary OS to our smart phones and two years from experience we expected from our smart watched

    I'm with mogelijk. Too many times I've been burned as an early adopter. Bought something on release of a new system then a few months later some really terrific gear hits the market to take best advantage of it -- but I'm struggling on with a device that's "good but not quite there yet."

    I bought the G watch last night from best buy. I didn't want to wait any more. I love the g watch and android wear, but not as much as Glass.

    Just pick up the gear live and if you like the 360 when it comes out sell it and get the 360.

    I love android wear too, hope that it can add a speaker for alert or playing music.

    Considering how little we've seen of the 1+1, I doubt it. Motorola may be taking its sweet time, but they surely aren't going to be THAT slow.

    I can see some reasons for having a speaker, but playing music isn't one of them.

    A) a speaker small enough to fit in a watch is going to have horrible sound.
    B) people walking around with music playing from their watches is just obnoxious and annoying.

    C) Having the watch connected by Bluetooth to the phone does not cancel audible alerts or music from the phone (or does it?). How far from the phone is the smartwatch wearer going to be?

    If it likes other launcher on Android can add widget. I think I will like it.

    Part of the reason I'm using the G watch at least for this generation is that a lot of the cool things on it so far may not work great on the moto. Like calculator, mini launcher etc. I'm hoping by gen 2 or gen 3 everything will be more suited to these circular watches and I can switch
