(Pocket-lint) - After Google announced the Android Wear watches were available for pre-order last night everyone was excited. Then we found out that was only the Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch and that we'd have to wait for Motorola's Moto 360. Realising we might be upset Motorola had a treat lined up with new faces.

The Motorola Moto 360 Design Face-Off competition has come to a close and the winner, above, has been announced. But even the runner's up are brilliant, below, and will hopefully be available in some form – even if not officially. There were 1,300 entries in total.

The winning design manages to combine the classic analogue watch face with myriad alerts that are expected from a smartwatch. There's a second hand, along with blue bars to show where the minute and hour hands sit at a glance. Email, calls, messages and battery all appear to be represented with icons along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, alarm and charging.  

The winning design was the work of David Pascual. He says the design: "Displays calendar events, allows for user defined notification widgets, and provides status information for basic watch functions (charging, alarm, bluetooth, and wifi connection)".

What is the Pocket-lint daily and how do you get it for free?

We'd hope to see the winner along with the watch and expect the runners up will have a chance to get their faces in use also via third-party downloads.
