What's the deal with the black bit on the bottom of the Moto 360's screen? Seems to be in all the pictures...

Awful isn't it. I think its space reserved for Notifications or summat.
I personally couldn't abide it and definitely won't be getting one.
Not that I'll get a smartwatch at all.......

It houses the ambient light sensor and display drivers. Apparently it was something of a compromise for Motorola; they had to put them somewhere, and it was either there or in the bezel. The latter would have resulted in a rim around the screen, making the face larger or the screen smaller. They decided the current set-up looked better.
I expect they'll find a third option eventually, probably in time for the Moto 360 (2015)...
