Never fear, there are more leaks and gossip to report in advance of the next Google hype-fest, set for August 1, when CNET will be on hand for the official Moto X reveal.
In particular, the case for a Motorola smartwatch companion often referred to as the "Moto xWatch" seems to have strengthened, but we may not see it at the Moto X event next week. According to Android blogger and Texan (Motorola has operations in Texas, where the Moto X is being assembled) Taylor Wimberly: "Unverified source tells me moto xWATCH has been shelved for now. No way it gets announced August 1st."
This would seem to track with a Motorola job posting (since removed) for an industrial design person to work on "wearable connected products," according to TechRadar.
It's also worth revisiting a little of the smartwatch history within Google, which has reportedly applied for a patent for such a device, and Motorola, the company that made the MotoActv fitness tracker, sporting Bluetooth, GPS, heart monitor and MP3 player -- essentially a smartwatch.
Lots of compelling tidbits there pointing toward a Moto xWatch reality, but that doesn't mean it will ever see the light of day. We shall see.
