Famous leaker EvLeaks weighs in with a possible name for the accessory, the Quark X.

Additionally, Android Police has managed to get its hands on images of a prototype smartwatch which was being developed by Motorola for Google. This device is the rumored to go by the codenames Gem and Google Watch. There’s no confirmation on whether Motorola will continue to develop this accessory or start fresh and the Mountain View giant is said to have now teamed up with LG for its upcoming smartwatch.
