Motorola has confirmed it is working on a smartwatch, with plans to release the device ‘in the next few months’. Speaking at Mobile World Congress (MWC), the company’s Rick Osterloh detailed his plans for the device and took a dig at rivals too.

Osterloh, who runs Motorola’s Product division, said that he wanted to create watch that people actually wanted to wear, something which he feels doesn’t apply to current smartwatches.

That subtle dig at Samsung aside, Osterloh suggested the Motorola smartwatch would go beyond simply offering fitness smarts and solve "real user problems.”

Motorola, which was recently sold to Lenovo by Google, has already released one smartwatch. Its fitness–focused MOTOACTV failed to catch on and was seen off by the likes of Nike’s FuelBand and FitBit’s wide array of devices.
