    Almost Useful

    Posted
    DavidNYC

    Let's get a couple of things out of the way. I'm an Android geek from day 1, above average knowledge of computers and electronics, and usually -- but not always -- an early adopter. I am full-in on Google Now for a long time. I use a Nexus 5 phone. So, this watch is beautiful. I show it to 65-year olds who have Trac phones and they say "Wow!" The comments about battery life are nonsense; the first full day it ran out in eight hours because I was touching it like crazy. The first full work day, which included 20 minutes of working out with the screen on from an app the whole time and regular texting and notification checks during the day, I came home after about 16 hours of wearing it and it had 15%. And, the stutter and lag comments are true for those who are examining the phone and looking for stutter and lag. Yeah, I noticed it the first day when I was playing with it, but not once in the flow of a regular day. All of that said, it is not particularly useful. It is essentially, right now, a remote control for your phone. Android Wear is nearly beta. There are a few good apps that made certain activities more efficient and the fitness stuff is decent and accurate. Strangely, there's no natural sync with Google calendar, Keep is not much, and Maps drains the watch battery (and why would I need my watch to buzz and fire up a navigation notification when the phone it is tethered to has loudly and clearly told me what to do?) If a $250 purchase isn't a big deal to you, I'd say go for it. I had some extra money come in, so I didn't mind the cost. I like wearing it -- and I didn't own a watch previously or really ever. But know that you are a beta tester essentially. I strongly believe that once Android Wear is improved and app makers figure out how to extend the app experience on wearables and not just duplicate it in miniature, this particular device will really rock. Hopefully that is in the next three months, but more likely after the Apple watch market penetration inspires app makers to get to work. If you're on the fence, know that the next gen will be a killer -- especially if it priced at the more appropriate $179 or so -- and that may be the one to wait for.

    Gorgeous watch with a huge flaw.

    This is by far the prettiest smartwatch on the market. You can wear it with your suits or casual clothes to the gym. The leather band is comfortable and has plenty of notches to fit perfectly. It’s lighter than you would expect from the pictures. I got plenty of compliments when wearing this android wear. The heart rate monitor is a huge plus over the other devices. It doesn’t seem as responsive as other android wear devices I have used. The biggest problem with this watch, is the battery. Yes I can turn off the display and I can cripple the watch to last the whole day with no problem. That is just not a watch. If the screen is off and you raise it to your face to see the time, sometime you have to wait. Sometimes it doesn’t come on and you HAVE to press the button. Yes I know this sound minor, but doing this all day it becomes a pain. If I have to do that, I might as well pull my phone from my pocket to check the time. Yes I have tried all the different reviews (turn off screen, calibrate the battery, decrease brightness, etc.) and nothing makes it a good “Watch” to use. I compared this watch to the LG G Watch today, with the moto having a decreased brightness. When I left the office at 5:30pm, the moto360’s battery level was 23% while the LG had 70%. The only other issue with thing is the location of the microphone. It is located on the side of the unit. When you raise the watch to speak into it, your mouth is facing the bottom of the watch, where they should have located the mic. I believe this is the reason for some of the voice recognition problem I experience with it. If you are looking at a watch to wear that will fit your suits or casual wear, and not really wanting the full experience of a smart watch, this is the one for you. If want a smartwatch to replace your watch, get notifications and be more what android wear is supposed to be, then look elsewhere.

    Flagship Android Wear Smartwatch okay, with issues

    Announced as part of the initial batch of smart watches based off of Google's Android Wear platform in spring 2014, the then uniquely round faced Motorola Moto 360 represented the hallmark of this new collection of accessories for your Android-based smartphone. Here is the bottom line regarding this watch: Technology - The components inside this watch aren't as new as some of its competitors. The battery capacity may not be as large as its competitors and the overall size of the watch might be somewhat bulky by comparison. What you'll come to find out, as I did, is that the Moto 360 is, **overall all**, the best offering in terms of styling and acceptable capabilities of any Android Wear device currently available (as of Dec 2014). Battery life - if you intend to configure your Moto 360 to have the screen lit up displaying the time constantly, you are very likely going to struggle to make it through one day on a single charge regardless of how much you use it. Thankfully the default is to keep the screen dark until tapped or if the user raises their wrist up to check the time (which this gesture works most of the time). Given this setting you'll be less likely to get the battery low warnings (which start at 15% remaining) before 10-12+ hours of daytime use. Nightly charging in either case is going to be a requirement but the upside is the charger is fast and is a nice ascetic addition to your nightstand. Features - this watch is as well outfitted as pretty much every other Android Wear smart watch. Motorola adds some additional items such as the "Connect" app running on your smartphone which allows you to manage your Motorola accessories such as your Moto 360. On the watch, "Moto Body" acts as an overlay to Google's Fit health tracking options by offering to track calories, heart activity, heart rate, and step counting. Sadly, I have found multiple bugs around the heart activity and step counting. Previous days will sometimes incorrectly state 0 steps taken when in fact 10-14k steps were completed while wearing the watch. Also, the heart rate functionality works best when the device is affixed quite snuggly to your wrist - which may not be comfortable for all if wearing it that way all day. If you own an Android Phone (required to use Android Wear devices such as this) and you feel compelled to get a smart watch, the Moto 360 has acceptable technology inside which won't leave you wanting and above average styling which won't leave you feeling like you strapped on a calculator watch pulled straight out of the 1980s.

    A Very Good Looking Watch, Lacking OS

    Posted
    Springsteenfan1020

    I was very excited to get my hands on this product and was looking forward to it for months. I used it for about a week and then ended up returning the device. Nothing against the watch, it had amazing looks and looked very classy. For me, it was the software that came up very short. I just did not see the need for a $250 watch to let me know how long it will take to get home from work or to show me how many steps I have taken. I understand it is only suppose to be an extension of your phone but it was just too bare bones for my liking. The bluetooth connection also ate at my battery life on my Note 3, after I returned it the other day my battery is back to normal. The terrible battery life rumors are just false. I used it for a solid week and never got "scared" of it dying on me. Unless you get constant notifications the watch will last you easily throughout the day, but you will for sure want to charge it at night. But when you do, charging the device is a breeze and extremely easy since it is wireless, just put the watch on the stand and boom it charges, and fast. I found it to charge almost 1% every minute or two. So if you are a heavy user just bring the small charger with you and you are good to go. The screen looked crisp for a watch and I can't get over the design. Motorola knocked it out of the park. But for me it just was not worth the money in the long run. Android Wear has a very long way to go and until then I recommend holding off on a smart watch. But if you really like the way it looks and want text messages on your wrist...go for it, you may or may not be disappointed.

    Decent looking, but below expectations

    I think Moto360 was hyped too much, so I was very disappointed when I purchased it. One of the biggest draw that online reviews and moto hyped was the round watch face. Yes, it is good looking, but there are plenty of good looking square watches out there too. I was also aware of the outdated TI CPU it uses, and have read reviews on it. I thought I could over look this, but the battery life just doesn't measure up. I had GearLive at the same time. On Gear Live brightness set to 3, with dim screen turned on, it lasts me 2 days (dies around 4 pm the next day from 8 am current day). Where as moto360, with setting of auto brightness (yes it has a sensor), auto dim screen also turned on, it lasts to about 8 pm from 8 am on the same day! Putting the two watches side by side, you can also see the animation/swiping/replying is all much faster on the Gear Live with the snapdragon 400 cpu. Yes I know for both watches you can turn off the auto-dim, which would extend battery life, but it looks so much sexier with the dimmed screen, rather than a black face with nothing on it. It catches people's eyes much better with an elegant watch face (dimmed screen). Also the AMOLED screen on GearLive only lights up the pixels that it needs to display, so having the screen always on in dimmed mode doesn't actually uses much battery life either. Moto360 has the ergular IPS LCD, which does not work that way. Pro: - good looking watch (not necessarily due to its round face) - great leather band, very comfortable - inductive charging - (almost) edge-to-edge screen - Android Wear platform Con: - TI OLD CHIP!!! - battery life - more sluggish performance compared to the other two, but not a deal breaker I would not recommend this product to another friend.

    Reserving judgement for a few days...

    Just got this watch last night. Had a G Watch since launch of Android Wear. So I have been looking forward to this since the announcement but as of right now I am not sold yet. Here's why: Pros: Very sleek and elegant looking Extremely light (like surprisingly light) Very pretty screen (bright, vivid) Amazing charging solution (elegant) Nice feeling leather band Cons: * Compared to the G Watch, seems sluggish in UI * Voice recognition nowhere near as good as G Watch * Overall, battery on Android Wear isn't great but I took it off the charger at 1025. It's now 1242 and it's down to 74%. W T F? * Weird black spot on screen at bottom (where antennas are) is more noticeable than I thought it would be All in all, it's hands down the best looking Android Wear watch. I just wonder if LG had it right using a more current processor for better battery management (the Moto 360 uses a cell phone processor from 2010) over having a pretty form factor. I'm holding off on final judgement for a few days, but for now I am not sold. I'm hoping a software update will fix a lot of the issues. LG G Watch R is looking mighty compelling...

      The device needs to download a software update after initial setup, and this does eat a lot of battery. However, after the update is installed, the battery life will improve. Also consider that anytime you've got a new piece of tech, you're probably going to be using it / playing with it a lot more than you would once you've had it for a while and gotten used to it. Give it a few days, even a week, and then see how you feel about it.MotorolaMobility

    It's the best smart watch out but still needs work

    Battery life is good with the latest update. I like the wireless charging setup and "alarm" clock look when charging. Sometimes when saying a phrase it will correctly open the app or function other times it will search the internet. For example saying "show my steps" will usually open the fitness app and show how many steps you have taken but sometimes it get's into a state where all it will do is search the web. Both the heart rate monitor and pedometer are better than the Samsung smart watch but still only about 60% accurate. I'm hoping Android Wear 2.0 turns the tide and makes this a really useful product. Right now it's a fun toy. This is not for a novice or somebody who wants support from Motorola. They don't support this product online through chat or email and when you call them about an issue they told me they didn't have any info on the product and would have to "look up" the information and couldn't help me troubleshoot a problem and would call me back.

    Great Looking Watch, Android Wear Needs Work

    I was so excited for this watch when it was announced. It was the only smartwatch that actually looked like a watch. And it for sure did not disappoint there. It is just flat out sexy looking. The leather band felt great for a day or two but after it broke in my friends told me it then felt cheap which was a shame. That wasn't the problem with the watch, the problem was the operating system in android wear. I basically only used it for getting a quick look at the weather and seeing who texted me and who was calling me. The watch didn't do much else other ththan count my steps which was nice. But I just didn't see a use for it right then and there. Maybe after an update the OS will be great but it needs time to bake. Battery life easily got me threw an entire day and now Motorola has put out a new update (after I returned watch) which apparently doubles the battery life and many people who still have theirs said that it is true. So if you just want texts and calls on a sexy cool looking watch. Get this. I'm personally waiting it out after trying it for a week.

    Great looks with major battery issues

    Posted
    Canuck279

    I have owned the Samsung Gear Live for about six months now, and while it has performed well with Android Wear, it lacked the class to wear it for more formal occasions. Therefore I decided to get myself the Moto 360, which looks very classy. Unfortunately, the classy looks are not matched by performance, with first and foremost the horrendous battery life (max 16 hours with moderate use). Therefore, if you are looking for a timepiece that is classy and does not exude "geek", then the Moto 360 is a fine watch. If performance, especially battery life, is important to you, then perhaps you should get another Android Wear smartwatch, or wait for the next generation of watches to come to market. In summary, here are some pros and cons: Pros: - Looks - Build quality - Ability to customize (ex. change up watch bands, etc.) Cons: - Battery life - Performance (sluggish compared to other Android Wear watches) - Screen is not always on (as this would absolutely kill the battery)

    Great watch, lacked functionality for me

    I only owned the Moto 360 for roughly a week. While it is a beautiful watch, for me at least, it lacked the functionality that I had been looking for. It fit nicely on my wrist and it was comfortable to wear. One thing I didn't like, or couldn't get adjusted to was the bezel of the glass over the screen. The distortion was just annoying. The battery life was horrible too. I could barely make it through an 8 hour day before it died on me. Finally, while i know the light sensor at the bottom of the screen was a needed feature, it took away valuabke screen space. Combined with the screen bezel, it takes away from the enjoyment of the device. Motorola is headed in the right direction but I believe there will be better models in the future as the tech advances. In the end, I returned it after a week for a brand that provided greater functionality and features I didn't think I'd use that I do almost every day and I am very happy with it.

    First generation tech is always pretty much either hit or miss, but this is sort of in the middle. It is certainly not with out it's bugs/glitches/annoyances but what makes up for it is the cool style and utility that you do get from a device like this. I never would have purchased this had I not had some gift certs to use towards it, but I am glad that I got it. Looking back if I did have to spend my own money on it, but knowing what I know now, I'd not, and wait another generation or two. The screen works, but is not that great quality. Even glancing at it reveals the low pixel density, and the "flat tire" caused by the LCD driver is ugly. Pairing this device with an App like Trigger, that allows me to use a pin on my phone but disable pinlock when watch and phone are near each other has been invaluable. I would only recommend to a friend under the circumstance that they are a gadget junky.

    This watch looks amazing. I get people asking me about it all the time. One guy asked if I was from the future, haha. The current version of Android Wear is a great start to the software. It still needs a lot of work but it is already useful. Motorola's built in watchfaces are pretty nice looking and customizable through Motorola's app. Battery life is pretty awful. Processor is apparently old and outdated in performance and efficiency. I see lagging/stuttering on the watch occasionally, and have had a few crashes on the watch itself. Needs some software love and updated insides.

    Before deciding which smartwatch to buy I looked at all of them online and decided on the Moto360. The concept and features of the Moto were great but after using it for three weeks I became unhappy with how it performed. My clock face selection was changing arbitrarily, the watch did not respond to my touch most of the time, the tracking was not even close to my wife's who had brand-X tracker and our friends that had the same as hers. The biggest disappointment was the battery life which was about 16 hours. Kudos to BestBuy for excepting my return even though it was beyond the normal 30 day period. I did purchase a different brand which i am perfectly happy with.

    I really wanted to like this watch, but the overall execution was lacking... Notifications are a little quirky, and the battery life is not very good... About a day, maybe a day and a 1/2... But the notification features, (or basically the whole reason for a smart watch) are not very useful... The marriage between the Watch and notifications is lacking, it's use as a fitness watch (steps, etc...) are hard to get to, the "OK Google" doesn't work well... I personally think the Pebble has a better user experience at this point... Maybe in a year or two Android Wear will mature enough to be easy and useful, but not today... IMHO...

    Don't let the title fool you. This is a great Google Wear watch, but it still doesn't live up to the name of Motorola. Pros: Great build quality Bright Screen Decent specs Was on sale when I purchased Cons: (-1 star) horrible battery life - only lasted 3-5 hours with lowest brightness and minimum settings. (-1 star) sensors taking up screen space Outdated processor Grainy resolution Spotty voice recognition All in all, its a decent smartwatch, but I ended up returning it after 4 days because of the terrible battery life. I wouldn't recommend it to someone who would heavily use it.

    I got this for my girlfriend. It was fine other then the fact that it looked more for a man then it did for a woman. The real big down sides where that it was a little on the big side. I was super worried she was going to break it on something. The battery would die by the end of the day. All and all its not worth the $200 plus that we bough it for. I would wait till it dropped in price and or maybe come out with a newer better model. We had to return it. We could just not justife that much money.

    I purchased the 360 in hopes it would get me thru the day. Sadly my job doesn't allow this as I use my hands all day which continually turns the display on. This runs the battery down to fast. I was only getting 8 hrs of use. With ambient off and display set to one. But with that all aside it was a great watch as far as looks go. To a normal consumer this watch will last a day. I'm holding out hoping a new watch will come out with a little bit longer battery life that will last "me" all day.

    Great looking, needs a longer band. Plastic back is cheap and scratches. Screen is vibrant. Google features need to be as robust as the phone OS. Navigation to added functions is clumsy. The Google messages like drive time are cartoon like and cheap looking. The messages should be as elegant and polished as the time piece. If they can be customized, I haven't figured that out. Torn between Moto and Gear 2 but the Moto looks super nice. Zagg protection is a must.

    This watch is stylish and very fun at first, however my toddler daughter can alter the programming my "playing" with it while I'm holding her. (It is nearly impossible to keep her from being able to touch or alter the watch while it is being worn.) Once she alters the settings it can be difficult to reprogram if you are a tech novice like I am. Also, it is difficult to alter which notifications you reciwve from your phone so o have disconnected the watch from my phone completely.

Once I noticed the single white dead pixel... It was impossible to ignore. Otherwise the new update sent the battery life into overdrive... I got an easy 24 hours + with moderate use.. If youre on the fence about it.. I would buy it or wait till the toyish looking Gwatch R at 299.99,
