Motorola showed us their new Moto 360 smartwatch last week and now it looks like the company will launch the device in China.
Motorola is now owned by Chinese company Lenovo and the company now plans to launch the Moto 360 in China.
Many of Google’s Android Wear devices rely on a range of Google services, like Google Now and Google Play, although these services are not available in China.
Lenovo and Motorola have teamed up with Chinese company Mobvoi, who will provide search information and voice recognition on the new Moto 360 in China. What Google have done is remove some of their services from the version of Android Wear that will be available on the Chinese version of the Moto 360.
This apparently took some work for them to remove these features from Android Wear, according to Google’s engineering director for Android, David Singleton.
For example instead of saying ‘OK Google’ to the Moto 360 in China, users of the device will say ‘Ni hao Android’ before speaking commands to the device.
As yet there are no details on exactly when the Moto 360 will launch in China, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.
