    Not quite amazing

    This watch looks amazing and it would be perfect if the battery lasted all day. The heart rate monitor doesn't quite work sometimes (especially if you're not standing completely still). It's okay overall, but it's not a must have for Android users.

    Great watch. Very nice scratch-resistant screen. My only complaints are low battery life and heart rate monitor inconsistency. It would be nice if there were more watch band options as well.

    I have had few issues with my watch. I bought the floor model because it was on sale and loving it. The only con I can think of is that the heart rate monitor doesn't work 100% of the time. I may get a hit maybe 2 out 5 times I check it.

    I use this watch mostly for notifications paired to my moto 360, which works perfect and looks good doing it. Battery life is not an issue. I get 15 hour days with 35% battery left on ambient mode. My only issue is the heart rate sensor does not work with the watch in its normal position. If you are looking for a activity tracker I would go another route but if you want a discreet and convenient way to see why your phone made a noise, this fits the bill.

    This is an awesome watch and very easy to use. Some minor glitches, but the pluses are greater than the negatives. The heart monitor doesn't always work. The battery life is short, but it's an electronic device. The watch design is better then any other smartwatches.

    Genuinely impressed with this purchase. Beautiful watch, with great battery life after the much talked about patch. I can easy wear it all day and come home with 65 - 70 percent still remaining, and in a pinch it will last overnight! Pedometer and heart rate monitor are excellent, and more apps seem to be updating frequently to send notifications to Android Wear. Only real downside I've found so far, is no apps currently pull the pedometer and heart rate info from the watch.

    No issues with battery life. Getting full day's use on one charge. Screen is crisp and clear with no issues in bright light. Only con so far is that the HR monitor is not reliable at times. Tried tightening the band and making sure that the watch-back was clean with some moderate improvement. Otherwise does as advertised.

    The Moto 360 is a great device for telling time, and it's good for other stuff too! I think there is great potential with Android wear and upcoming apps for this device. The battery life is pretty good (unless you compare it to a pebble watch). I grab it off the charger about 6AM and when I put it back on the charger at about 11PM at night it's usually about 50-60% charge. Likes: * Notifications * Different Watchfaces * Music Controls * Adding to do lists, checking the weather, sending messages and other things (if you can get used to talking to your watch) * Best looking smart watch IMO Dislikes * I set the watch screen to turn off when not active and sometimes it doesn't turn on when I want to see the time. @@@@@ Heart rate and step counter is off and unreliable * Scared I may scratch or break it because it looks so nice

    I bought this as an early birthday present. I've heard a lot about wearables so I thought at the sale price it would be a nice experiment. I've to say it's actually more useful to me than I expected. I thought it it be a toy but I find it great to be driving and just see the navigation on my wrist, control music and see what notifications are coming up. It does drain the phone battery a bit with bluetooth on but I'm excited for the wifi update and maybe a few bug fixes as well. . The only really annoying bug is that sometimes I touch the screen to do something like check heart rate and it will not open the app until the phone goes back to sleep and I reopen but it's a first gen device.

    Great gadget, but limited functionality

    So I bought this knowing its clearly in development so I know its not going to be all singing, all dancing and have all the bells and whistles I would love to have, or expected I would have in 2014 when I was a kid... but then if that was the case, we would have hoverboards and flying cars!! But I have to admit, the more I use it, the more I see it has great potential and I hope others will buy into it so that Google further develop Android Wear and the likes of Motorola make more improved watches like this. Notification system works well, there is limited apps right now and the remote control of apps on the phone is expanding or I'm finding them as I go... So far I have used it to answer calls, control the play of spotify and chromecast, although there is no volume control on these at this time. Down side is the integrated heart rate monitor doesn't appear to be very accurate... that may be an algorithm needing tweaking, or a limitation of the technology used. So the battery lasts a day, since this is essentially an extension to my phone with a similar battery life, I'm good with that. It doesn't have a camera, but then has anyone took a good picture with the one on the Samsung gear watch? I'm guessing not. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase and look forward to the updates that make it even better

    i would give it 5 stars if the battery life was just a little bit better. But on the whole, I like this watch a lot. I bought it to replace a Polar M400 and Pebble Steel. I got tired of wearing two watches, one to track steps and my workouts and the other for smartphone notifications and weather on my wrist. The Moto 360 isn't great at heart rate on its own, but there are a few apps that have Android Wear components so I can see calories burned and heart rate from my bluetooth heart rate monitor while I work out. And with the Jawbone Up app and Google Fit, I can keep track of my steps. And the weather options are more robust than what I had on the Pebble, not to mention the app scene in general is better for Android Wear and is improving constantly. A great purchase and I look forward to the next generation with hopefully improved battery life although I acknowledge the 5 day battery life on the Pebble and the 30 day battery life on the Polar totally spoiled me. I use the watch for sleep tracking, so I have to charge it at least twice daily (after workouts and before going to bed).

    This watch is really helpful. It helps me to not miss phone calls and texts. It does not have the greatest pulse monitor in the world. I think there are other watches that do a better job with fitness related activities. This does count your footsteps, etc. but I don't think it is super accurate. However, it looks really sharp - I get many people commenting on the watch and being interested in it. It also does a GREAT job of giving you a heads up on texts and emails and phone calls. The only big negative for me is how quickly the battery runs out. I bought a second charger cradle that I keep in the car. If you forget to put it in the cradle at night, it WILL be dead by morning. Overall, I love it and I would highly recommend it.

    Nice, but is not without flaws

    VERY nice smart watch. Best on the market in my opinion. Beautiful in looks, fit, and finish, BUT it still has some flaws; 1. @@@@@@@ Battery Life - About 10 hours with mild use results in 15% battery life . No Buenos 2. @@@@@@@ Sometime the UI is respond to events such as lift my arm to wake the device, especially if I have on a a long sleeved shirt of coat, but tapping the screen will also wake it in the events where it doesn't register the movement of your body. 3. @@@@@@@ Voice recognition is considerably worse than it is on my phone which is a major drawback considering its the only way to fully interact with incoming messages 4. @@@@@@@ In order for the heart rate monitor to work, u must wear the watch rally tight to you wrist which kinda sucks given its size. When its tight and doesn't move around sometimes it impedes the movement of your and and wrist and you will inadvertently power the watch down by depressing the crown for a few seconds Other than that its a nice watch that happens to be smart. ALSO this and all smart watches should fall into TOY category . Its defiantly not a must have as it adds no functionality you cant currently do with one

    For starters I am a computer engineer and I enjoy everything related to new tech. I had the moto 360 for a week. From what I read the battery apparently is supposed to get better after a few charge cycles, well mine did not instead it got worse with every charge. I did not receive many notifications on the device, the battery after 12 hours of use was sitting at 2% or already dead. My screen was also defective 16 dead pixels. The heart rate monitor never got a reading but that really depends on how skinny your wrist is as the sensor most likely wont lay flat. The watch was gorgeous though, the faces looked nice as well. I really wanted to enjoy this but I am 99% sure mine was defective from the get go with the battery and the screen. The cpu inside is 4 years old (identical to the cpu in the moto droid 2) and my experience noticed lagged in doing anything. To me $250 is a steep price for a smartwatch when you can spend that on a nice seiko,citizen or any of the decent watches out there and not worry about it being dead or the screen being off. I was hype for this but this has put me off smartwatches completely. Truth be told until there is a proper low power arm cpu made specifically for smartwatches battery life will always be terrible they are shoehorning full blown smartphone/tablet cpus in these right now which is overkill for what these do. I uploaded a picture showing a small cluster of dead pixels(upper right) the rest were hard to get on camera.

    Android wear is a useful concep and 360 is pretty

    Posted
    Sina

    I already like the smart watch concept, and 360 in general, with the way android wear is envisioning it seems very promising. I already really like my Moto 360. If I lose it I will be buying another one instead of upgrading m phone. That's how much I like the android wear concept. The battery life is good enough for android wear concept, however 30-40% more juice would have been better, because with the current Moto 360 battery life you will get into trouble for the days you will be using the watch heavier, for instance for its navigation capability. Android wear should improve too. At the moment there is no useful third party apps, except the Lyft app and the mini launcher. Hope android would get its own stock launcher in its upcoming releases. Also I wish the heart rate monitor app would have had better use for its data. Not sure how accurate and constant moto 360 gathers your heart rate data either. If it actually does gather the heart rate data, it would make sense for google fit app to also tell you how much calories you've burnt as a function of your heart rate and steps taken, that's how the upcoming Apple watch is going to do that. It would also make sense to add a battery saver mode on the watch, which would stop the heart monitoring and notifications pop ups when your battery is low, so your watch can get a couple of more hours of juice to show you the time.

    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.

    Love This Watch

    I owned this watch for approximately 2 month and I love, it is best android smartwatch out there not only because it work awesome but it looks beautiful. The initial software right out the box was not the best but it got better over time with updates. Battery life was the issue for a lot of people, and to be honest it was not that bad it will last at least over 8hrs without a need to be charged. After the 2 updates battery life has gotten better I tested it and last me 26hrs and still had 18% battery left. The battery charge will drain fast depending on the watch face, the more complex the face the faster it will drain, the simplest will last you longer such as the stock watchfaces. This watch has a heart rate sensor is hit and missed sometimes you'll may have to run it twice due to bad reading, most of the time you'll get it on the first read if you wear it tight. The sensor on the front of the watch is dam accurate if you have the ambient screen off the watch will turn on when you twist your wrist to look at the time. This watch does not have a speaker like the gear watch so you cannot have a phone conversation on the watch, but it does have a mic for voice commands. The voice command is really good and accurate due to it uses Google's voice and the internet from your phone. You can use the mic to reply to text messages or other voice feature such as voice search or call someone. Another neat feature of the watch is the wireless charging and how fast it does it, just let it sit on the charger and you'll be set in about hour or so depending how low the battery level. If you use Google now you'll love this all your now cards are sent to the watch. Overall this watch is awesome and looks beautiful despite the small black line at the bottom of the watch where one of the sensor is located over time you'll forget that is there. This watch is very customizable including the watch band I have the pebble metal band with it, and with the Facer app and Facerepo.com you can have a watchface for any occasion or styles.

    I had my reservations with android wear and this watch has sold me. After using the lg g watch for a couple of days I decided to give the 360 a try. The screen is significantly larger and provides enough real estate to scroll thorugh emails quite easily. I've been able to get through a full day with 30% remaining before I head to bed with ambient mode ON. The watch charges extremely quickly. As an example, I got home dropped the watch on the charger @ 50%. Took a shower, got dressed, picked up the watch and it was @ 80%. 30% in about 20min is astounding. Very happy with the purchase. Cons: 1. Battery definitely won't last two days 2. Interface can sometimes be sluggish. 3. Heart rate sensor does a bad job when you're moving. Basically, don't expect it to work well for exercise.

    Above Expectations

    I've reserved my opinion until I had this for a week and I can say my initial excitement hasn't really worn off. I suppose I had lower expectations because of the battery life comments, but I get up at 6am go to work and put it on the charger around 11pm and have 40% of my battery left. Consistently. Sure I would love to not charge the battery more than once a week, but it gets me through my day using it for notifications, time checks and voice reply. It isn't a drain on my phone either. I've found it to actually conserve my phone battery (s5 Galaxy) because I'm not using the display as much. The negatives include the large face. I put it on my wife and it screams, "Hey tiny wrist. I look enormous on you." Also, I'ven'ticed the heart rate monitor is inconsistent or I've HUGE fluctuations when walking within seconds of readings. When I'm sitting or standing still the reading seems much more reliable. In my opinion this is a huge step for Android Wear. I'ven't been interested in any previous smart watches and had a difficult time justifying why I would need one. The 360 look got me over that wall and now that I've had it I'm not sure I would want to go without again.

    I love this watch! It looks great and its convenient when you have a phone the size of the Nexus 6. I love the leather band it comes with as it makes it super comfortable. Sometimes I forget I'm wearing it. I'm a HS teacher, so checking my phone throughout the day (let's face it, we're all addicted) doesn't set a good example for the kids. This watch lets me know silently through a short vibration that I've gotten a new email, FB update, text, hangout msg, twitter, Instagram, etc. As long as its just text, I can read the messages. I can send messages and emails just by talking to it, hands free. This has come in handy when I'm running late or need to ask a quick question while I'm driving. I don't even have to look at it, just say who I'm texting and the msg. It even let's me know when I'm supposed to turn when I'm following directions from the GPS on my phone. You can customize which app notifications you want to know about. It only takes a quick swipe to remove it from your screen. To look at the time/bring your watch to life you just have to tilt your arm towards you like you normally would. The watch knows and so will light up. Like other less expensive watches, of course, it tracks your steps, exercise and heart rate. You can set goals for yourself and it will remind you throughout the day and week to work on them while telling you how close you are. Also, battery is great! I put it on around 7am and put it on the charger around 8 or 9pm and still have about 40% life left. I definitely recommend this watch.
