The Moto 360 was the first Android Wear smartwatch with a round clock face and its sleek design drove everyone nuts. Only that beneath all that, it packed some not-so-exciting hardware. Many forgave it because it is a timepiece first and everything else second and future software updates made it worth having despite earlier misgivings. However, its spot at the top of the Android Wear admiration and sales charts has been under threat from a new breed of impressive watches from the likes of LG with more from other competitors also on the way. So it is about time Motorola did something, right?
