Oh, look, it’s the Moto 360 on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon

by: Bogdan PetrovanJune 7, 2014

We all know the Moto 360 is coming “soon”. How soon, you ask? Pretty soon, if you think that at least one tech journalist is wearing it right now, and on national television of all places.

Joshua Topolsky, the editor in chief of The Verge, is Jimmy Fallon’s resident tech guru. As a recurrent guest on Jimmy Fallon’s shows, Josh shows off new gadgets and sometimes demoes them together with Jimmy and his guests. Yesterday, Josh demoed a Lytro camera and Sony’s new VR headset, but what really caught our eye was the Moto 360 that he was so casually sporting.

You can clearly tell it’s a Moto 360, and, at one point, the device lights up with a sleek neon watch face. And, on its official Facebook page, The Verge appears to be teasing the device, so this could be a planned hype-building move, rather than a simple slip-up.

The Verge is in great relationship with Motorola and Google, and has received devices for exclusive advance testing several times before. This is probably what’s happening here, as well, meaning that the Moto 360’s official debut can’t be far. Google I/O, just start already!

    Gosh, this thing is really going to be that huge :/

    • MasterMuffin

      That’s not huge…

      • Corbin Crutch

        I am glad to see the bezels arn’t as large as the prototype

        • MasterMuffin

          Yea it looks good!

    • Rickrau5

      You must have baby hands.

      • Dave

        I indeed don’t have the biggest wrists, that’s why I was hoping for a size like that: http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/1066/4435/original.jpg
        And it seems like the one shown by Joshua Topolsky is slightly bigger, at least to me :(

        • Rickrau5

          I was just kidding man, oversized watches are the in thing right now. So it wont look too awkward. Good find though

    • K

      That looks like a pretty good size especially since it looks like Josh has normal sized wrists.

    • I hate wearing my pebble steel because it is too small. looks childish.

      • BehelitOutlaw

        I agree wearing a big Tron watch is so manly

    • mmmmmbop

      It looks a little bit bigger than your average citizen or seiko, but it is by no means a huge watch.

  • Francois Foote

    Lol, I got so caught with whats happening in this video, I totally forgot it was about the moto360..

    • K2

      Moto 360 is the only thing that should catch your eye, not even the more innovative lytro camera and sony’s project morpheus.

  • mitchellvii

    On the one hand yeah that is Flava Flav BIG but on the other hand it will be easy to read.

  • mitchellvii

    Unless thw functionality sucks I pretty much predict the MOTO360 will dominate Samsung and LG. Why would anyone choose S Voice over Google Now?

    • Richard

      LG already has an Android Wear watch.
      Samsung is also making an Android Wear watch.
      Motorola won’t outsell LG and Samsung.
      Also, why bash S Voice?
      While Google Now is amazing, not every one needs it.
      There are regular consumers who are happy with their Gear wearables.

      • mitchellvii

        If you don’t mind slow performance and terrible accuracy as well as limited search results, S Voice is awesome. It is nowhere even remotely close to the power of Google Now. Samsung is going to do an Android Wear watch? Don’t count on it – they are all in with Tizen. Samsung has always loved shoving their proprietary crap down our throats – look at S Note – a complete joke of an app that isn’t compatible with anything.

        Moto 360 will vastly outsell G watch, it won’t even be close. Gear 2 will die once these Android Wear products are out.

        • Benjamin Pavel

          It’s already confirmed since March that Samsung will do OFFICIAL Android Wear smartwatch!
          LG, Motorola, Samsung and HTC are the companies where it’s confirmed that they will release Android Wear watch in near future!

        • Evan Lam

          I hate to bring it up, especially on an Android website, but if you want a company that loved proprietary, its definitely Apple.

        • xoj_21

          u can export to jpeg and pdf and evernote.

      • frhow

        Thats because the regular consumer doesnt know there are better options on their way. Once it hits and everybody starts talking about the MOTO 360 then it will take off like wildfire. Plus I am sure LG and Samsung versions both will be less stylish & more expensive.

        • PoisonApple31

          Better options on the way? That’s subjective. I’d gladly look into the Moto 360, but if it’s only going to be an extension of Google Now that I’ll have to charge each day, screw it – plenty happy with Gear 2 Neo.

    • xoj_21

      i think moto360 gotta have bad battery life.
      then samsung will release their version with better battery life.

  • Jayfeather787

    I was thinking about the watch and then… HOLY CRAP DRAGON!!!!!
