The Moto Hint is a new Bluetooth headset. While this is normally a bit boring, Motorola has put extra effort into this headset.

The size and shape is specifically made to fit in ears as well as possible and to make it less obvious than most headsets. The headset also has microphones which also serve as a method to access Google Now and Moto Voice on the new Moto X. One use case demonstrated was turn by turn navigation with the phone in a pocket and relying upon the headset for directions. There's also a sensor that will automatically detect when the headset is removed from the ear and will shut off the headset upon detection. Finally, it will charge and store itself on a keychain charger if not in use.

The Moto Hint will go on sale later this fall. It will cost 149.99 USD in the US and will be available on Motorola's website and expand to other regions in time for the holidays.

    The Motorola Hint appeals to me far more than a smartwatch. I use the Touchless Control features of my Moto X a lot, the Motorola Hint really clicks with me Reply

    are they trying to get the antennas as close as possible to our body? I recently got some interest in BT Headsets (dont have one yet), but apart from a few use-cases I would not like to keep this inside of my ear for too long... Reply

    Waiting for the inevitable "Take a Hint" advertising campaign or internet meme photos. Reply

    I used to have a Motorola Hint in 2009. Great little phone, but a little unusual to reuse the name for a Bluetooth earpiece. They could have called it the tweeter or the whisper or something. Reply
