A new Moto X-specific accessory called the “Skip” just showed up on Motorola’s site, days before rumored launch dates have suggested that the Moto X would arrive. The accessory is listed as being a special “wearable accessory” that can be used to unlock your phone with a single tap. And yeah, that’s all it says. So in other words, when you pull your phone out of your pocket, you could tap your phone to it to wake rather than having to reach for the lock switch?
The accessory is listed at an introductory $ 19.99, which seems a bit steep for an accessory that only wakes your phone (which your thumb can do for free). There has to be more to this story. Maybe?
