    So disappointed that the release date wasn't announced.

    I was more disappointed with the screen design. Not really a full circle, and that dead chunk of wasted screen?!

    So you'd rather have huge bezels all the way around like the lg and Samsung?

    probably, yes. once you've seen the dead space, you can't unsee it...

    I've spent some time thinking about it, and I don't think it bothers me. In fact, I'm not completely sure that I don't kind of like it. The thing already has a lot of roundness; I think making the bezel in the way they did gives it character.

    Exactly. If it was a just an outside bezel, well... but it's right inside the screen! And it's dead! And it doesn't do anything! I'm almost hoping this was only to cover something up they didn't want to show during I/O (like the sticker they had on the back to hide the charging bits).

    It's in the circle, but not part of the screen technically. They have to put the screen digitizer controls, and sensors somewhere.

    How about underneath the screen?

    You know what? I think it's more about the expectation build-up. When Android Wear was first announced and the Moto360 dummy render was shown, the images for the 'round' version was that of a FULL circle. Fast Forward to Google I/O and it turns out the 360 is not actually a full circle.

    I'll wait until I see one in person. But at least from the pictures, I just can't stop staring at that dark area. At least they should print a logo on it or something...

    Hm. I'm not sure how I'd feel about that.

    Hahaha no :P

    And I was thinking more of a subtle "M" logo... something to make it seem more useful than 'it's just a dead chunk of plastic'

    Somewhere I saw an interview where they said that little area holds the display driver and light sensor. Not sure how much of the space the light sensor takes up, but it would certainly mean any logo couldn't cover the whole thing. It does hurt the aesthetic a bit, but IMO it's not that big of a deal. The bottom was probably the best place to put it, though they probably could've done something creative with that area to make it seem like it was on purpose. Trying to make it blend in sort of ends up making it stand out.

    in some images (can't find them again, sorry) you can actually see the ambient light sensor, about the same size as it is on most smartphones I think (a bit over 1mm diameter)

    the "empty" space doesnt bother me at all. if moto addresses this then yeah cool, but if not, its no biggie for me. 360 is the only wearable i enjoy the most so far aesthetically speaking, it just looks the nicest, imo. and id prefer it with the metal band instead of leather. what i also like about it is the regular face of it, on how its a cool looking watch.

    I'll be surprised if they price it above $300. Nobody will buy one. I'm expecting something in the $200-$300 range.

    I am expecting a price of 350-450 to be honest...I will be excited if you are right though.

    Everyday I just get more and more down on this watch. Rumors about the size, price and battery life have me much less excited than when it was first announced. Also, the wait is ridiculous. That is one thing about Apple I really like....they announce it and it's available. Don't tease me.

    I agree! Its like they want to beat the competition to the punch, just to say they did it first, but still it's takes months to deliver. Same thing with apps and pc gaming, I feel I'm always paying to play a beta or for Christ sake an alpha game for that matter and by the time the release is out....... I'm on to the next beta or alpha. Phones and watches are no different we are all paying testers.

    while I agree that it's usually better to announce a product and release it soon after (before the hype dies down) I think they might have gotten pushed out the door by Google this time, since Google is the one to announce Android Wear not Motorola
    and I'm not sure what people have been hearing about the size and battery life that's really that disappointing

    EDIT: seen the rumour I think this was referring now but it sounds like bs since what was shown at Google I/O was supposed to be production hardware and now it's made out of plastic? I doubt this

    I had the Galaxy Gear watch and really loved it...the battery life was horrible at first but got much better with each update....then tizen was installed and at least I could last the day without a charge, the watch charged quickly anyway. So im sure as they tweak the os battery life will get better over time.

    I'm already budgeting for it to be $360. I just hope it comes out in late August.
