moto yo contest broken 640x640We know there are many of you guys out there who can’t wait to get their hands on the Moto 360 smartwatch, and one of the ways you could guarantee yourself the watch is by participating in a contest that Motorola and Yo held together. For those unfamiliar, Yo is a messaging app that seems to have garnered a lot of attention for its simplicity.

That being said, Motorola only had plans to give away 20 Moto 360 to 20 winners, but unfortunately due to a glitch or perhaps it was by accident, by Motorola seems to have sent out congratulatory messages to definitely a lot more than 20 contest participants. This resulted in a lot of excited users who rushed to try and claim the watch, only to be met with the error message above.

Naturally this did not sit well with people who thought they had rightfully won themselves a Moto 360. As you can see in Motorola’s Google+ post, there are a lot of irate customers who are wondering what’s up with the deal – did they win themselves a Moto 360 or not? Unfortunately Motorola has yet to comment on the snafu and we have to wonder what they can do about all their angry customers who had thought they had won themselves a Moto 360.

What do you guys think about this situation? Were you one of the people who had received the congratulatory message in error? Or were you really part of the lucky 20 who did win themselves a Moto 360 smartwatch?
