Design, not tech, is what matters in smartwatches

ArsTechnica’s review of the new Moto 360 confirms what we already new. There’s not much new tech on the new smartwatches.

What matters is design, and that defies the real value of this devices. If you want design over functionality, just get a nice watch. You’ll have plenty of options, and battery will last far more than a day.

Disappointing.
