Motorola looking to make its own smartwatch and other "wearables"

In a world where “wearable computing” is the new favourite buzzword, many companies are trying to create successful wearable devices. But only a handful are seen as real possible contenders in this space.

According to a job posting, Motorola is looking to get back into this game and create a “new world-class wearables design group”. The company has previously tried to enter the world of wearable technology back in 2011 when they launched the MotoACTV – the wearable watch-mp3player-fitness device. However, that device flopped.

With Samsung already officially in the race, Microsoft courting this space, and the ever-looming spectre of Apple’s iWatch, it’s interesting to see if the company, now owned by Google, is capable of competing.

What do you folks think, is the future of  technology going to be strapped to our bodies or is this just another passing fad? Let us know in the comments below.
