When Android wear came out, I was very excited. I had seen friend's with Pebble watches, and I loved how you could discreetly check notifications in class, at work, with family, etc. I got the moto360 the day it came out, and had high hopes.
It was good, but not amazing. It was bulky, masculine, and not enough functionality. Plus, I HATED the flat tire display (a chunk of the circle wasn't there at the bottom, cut off at a flat line). I sold it off in hopes that the second wave of watches would be better - alas, they were either masculine or had the flat-tire display or both. The first feminine watch that was good was the Huawei Watch for ladies, but that was depressingly expensive.
I have high hopes for these watches, and with the birth of a rose gold, beautiful watch WITH android wear 2.0, I decided to go for it. I have been wearing it for a week now, and here are my thoughts.
-Android wear 2.0: it's nice to not need your phone with you for certain functionality. I use hangouts/fi wifi texting, so I can send/receive texts without my phone. You can receive and answer facebook messenger as well, or download music from google play or stream spotify. That's AWESOME at the gym. If you use IFTTT with smart home products, you can create widget buttons to turn on/off lights, tv, etc.
-Customizable watch faces: you can choose different custom peeks into apps right on the watch face. This could be steps, next meeting on calendar, battery, date, or a shortcut to an app (I choose IFTTT so I can easily access my smart home functionality).
-Look: NO FLAT TIRE display! Wonderful. Plus it has a crown in between rose gold and regular gold. It's not crazy pink gold like the iPhone 7, but a nice rich rosey hue. The bezel isn't too large so it still can look feminine.
-Battery life: The setup or any downloads will drain the battery a lot. If you use it just for notifications throughout the day, it will last you until night time, maybe. I'm hoping updates will help optimize the battery life like they did with the moto360. I own a fitbit alta, and it's low-maintenance charging is almost preferable, though with much less specs.
-Band: the band is packaged straight and is pretty stiff. It's still adjusting to being curved. However, the mode bands make it easy to switch up - so I bought a few on amazon to match outfits haha.
-Features: I do miss the moto360's heart rate sensor and wish it at least had a microphone. The sport version of this watch has nfc, HR, microphone, GPS, and cellular. That would be beautiful additions, but I guess the sacrifice is a slimmer, prettier watch which I prefer.
I'm definitely satisfied enough to keep it, and I hope the feature will come with added functionality, but it is a good watch and one of the best lady watches on the market.
