[UPDATE] [6:20PM] Well the contest is now over... But it looks like things didn't go as planned for Motorola.. Once the contest ended, 20 lucky winners were contacted through Yo regarding their price... But it turned out that more than 20 users were shown a message saying "Yo! You won a Moto 360!" But, once they put an email address into the form, users were then greeted with a more somber message saying, "Yo, unfortunately all Moto 360 watches have been claimed..." If you check on Twitter, you'll find that far more than 20 users were shown this message.

Did you receive a false message that you won a Moto 360 ? Or were you one of the twenty lucky winners?In any case please leave us a comment and let us know. Motorola is claiming that they "paid Yo to run the promotion" and that users will have to contact Yo to get confirmation before they can submit their claim to Motorola.
