Motorola's new Bluetooth headset hides inside your ear

In case you need a stylish new Bluetooth headset to go along with your brand new Moto X, Motorola also announced the Moto Hint. Meant to be as discreet as possible, the Hint almost looks like an ear plug when worn. It's so discreet that the Hint doesn't even have buttons -- simply tap its capacitive-touch surface to answer or end calls. As for the volume, you have to adjust that via the phone. The Hint comes with a charge case that apparently gives it up to 10 hours of talk time.

Though the Hint can be used with any smartphone, it was specifically designed to go along with the new X thanks to its ability to recognize the new Moto Voice. As a reminder, that means it'll recognize your custom voice prompt along with special phrases like "What's the weather?" and "Navigate home." The Hint even comes in six different design styles in fabric, leather and wood to compliment the X. Though we're not sure when the availability of the Hint is yet, it's set to be out this fall for $149.99 each.

If that isn't enough for you, Motorola also announced the Turbo Charger, which promises to give the Moto X 8 hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charge time, and the Power Pack Micro, a 1,500 mAh portable battery pack that can be used to find your phone or keys. If the Micro is attached to your keys (it has a keyring), you can use the Motorola Connect app on your phone to make it beep, and when you press a button on the Micro, it'll cause your phone to beep too. The Turbo Charger will cost you $34.99 while the Power Pack Micro is available for $39.99 starting today.
