Photos leak of Google's prototype smartwatch, built by Motorola AndroidPolice has released some leaked pictures of an early prototype of Motorola's smartwatch.
The photos do not reveal too much but show off a standard square display with large bezel (and Moto logo), a rocker and a power button on the lower left of the watch. In keeping with Android, there is a capacitive "back" button on the face.

On the other photo, we can briefly see the settings screen which includes a developer mode, giving credence to the fact that it was an early dev prototype.

Also tough to see is the icons on the rocker, one of which looks like a microphone with the other looking like a person. It is a possibility that one is for fitness and the other is for Google Now or other voice activation features.

More recent rumors have LG building the Google Now smartwatch for release in June at the company's I/O conference.

In a time where phone batteries are hardly lasting a day before always needing to be charged the only real feature I could see being useful with these watches is 1 the clock, as i still where a watch, and secondly if it has true GPS With maps on it that alone would make for a viable product, but most likely the GPS is assisted.

I read somewhere that the black market for knockoffs in China is a very good indicator of how things will do when they are released in the US. Nobody is touching the knockoffs of either Google Glass or any watch/smartphone combination. We shall see...
