Motorola Smartwatch Coming in 2014?

According to a report from The Verge, Motorola will be launching a few wearable devices in the coming year. The news was revealed at MWC 2014 in Barcelona in an interview with Senior Vice President of Motorola Rick Osterloch. According to Osterloch, Motorola will launch a stylish smartwatch, promising to address style and battery life issues in its wearable products.

Wearables are nothing new to the tech scene, but they are becoming more plentiful and feature-rich. 2013 saw the rise of the wearable, with Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, Pebble’s smartwatch and a ton of fitness trackers. Throw Google Glass in there and you’ve got a pretty veritable line-up of wearables which are maturing in 2014. Rumors are pointing to the possibility of a LG smartwatch in 2014, made in conjunction with Google, and Samsung just unveiled three new wearable devices, the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit. If MWC 2014 was any indication, wearables are going to be the hottest thing on everyone’s list this year.

As for Motorola’s designs on the smartwatch market, we’ll just have to wait and see how that plays out. It’s a pretty good bet that whatever the company has up its sleeves began development before Google jettisoned the company into the hands of Lenovo. If that’s the case, we can expect to see a sleek and “hip” smartwatch, akin to the Moto X and Moto G.
