Is the Motorola Moto 360 larger than advertised?

Several months ago, Google announced Android Wear, a new Android OS that would cater to wearables. Along with the announcement, LG and Motorola touted new smartwatches that would be running the new OS. Although the LG watch looked like standard fare, the Moto 360 practically reinvented the idea of what a smartwatch could look like with its round design that reflected a traditional timepiece.

While details about the device were scarce, Motorola did have a teaser site that included mockups of the device and how the Moto 360 would look on a wrist.

On the Android Developers Blog, new pictures have surfaced of a Moto 360 prototype, which shows that it might be quite a bit larger than the initial mockups. Although it’s difficult to gauge size from a picture, the new images of the Moto 360 seem to show that the dial will protrude outside the boundaries of the wearers arm.

Although we understand that what we're seeing here are mockups and prototypes, but if the watch is as large as the prototype appears, how will this influence your decision in purchasing the Moto 360?

With Google I/O scheduled for a two day event on June 25, one can only hope that the Moto 360 will be officially unveiled to end the speculation.
