Motorola Moto 360 Smartwatch To Launch in Chicago on Sept. 4

The time is fast approaching for the launch of the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch.

The new device, shown off at Google I/O in June, is set to be officially announced at a September 4 event in Chicago. The invitation also shows images of a Moto G and a Moto X smartphone, as well as some sort of Bluetooth headset.

The Moto 360 is the latest smartwatch to run Google's Android Wear operating system, which, as we noted in our reviews of the Samsung Gear Live and the LG G Watch, is a work in progress. Earlier this year, the Moto 360's price of $249 was also leaked, which would make it more expensive than either the $199 Gear live and the $229 LG G Watch. 

Motorola's announcement will come about a week before Apple's rumored event on September 9, at which it's expected to announce the iPhone 6. There's no word yet on when Apple will release its own smartwatch. Samsung is also expected to release yet another smartwatch, the Gear Solo, at IFA, which is also around the same time as Motorola's announcement. Stay tuned for our coverage of all these events.
