At Google I/O, the Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch Android Wear smartwatches were announced along with a proper demonstration. Both smartwearables also went on sale the same day on the Google Play Store.

Sensing the disappointment among early Android and Moto fans, Motorola recently has uploaded a demo video to show how the watch looks like in action. In the demo video, Motorola product marketing manager Cathay Bi gives us a walkthrough of the Moto 360, confirming that it comes with a stainless steel case, and a genuine leather wrist strap (we assume that this is customizable anyway).

Running Android Wear – just like Samsung’s Gear Live and LG’s G Watch – the Moto 360 displays notifications at the bottom of its screen. These can be dismissed the same way you’re doing it on an Android smartphone. The custom watch screen backgrounds designed for the Moto 360 actually seem quite a bit more stylish than those shown off at Google I/O on stage. You can also take (or reject) calls with the Moto 360.

Voice command also gets a quick demo, and works in much the same way as touchless control on the Moto X by simply saying “Ok, Google.” There’s also a physical button on the side of the watch’s body that’s used to wake it up, or you can tap the face.

Moto 360 is expected to release “later this summer” for a price that hasn’t been announced yet.Recently,Motorola revealed the winning design of its watch face contest – which might be used as one of the faces for the commercial version of the Moto 360.
