    This is the best smart watch on the market now and months to come, hands down. Unless you're a die hard Apple or Samsung fan, if you have an Android phone, get this! PRICE: The Moto 360 can be had for $249. If this sounds expensive, put this into perspective: The older smart watches will cost you at least $149-199 (without any special discounts, deals, trades, and etc) and the new Samsung Gear S costs $349. The Apple watches WILL START at $349 when they come out and go up to $600 as things currently stand. Hopefully you get my drift! STYLING: Head-turner, head-turner, head-turner! Due to the round face, it turns heads every time, especially when people realize it's a smart watch on your wrist! You can change the watch faces on the fly and the majority of them are free! You'll blow your friends and family's minds when you change the look of your screen immediately. There are plenty of free screens for everyone! If you use the voice commands, it will REALLY make them drool! The styling will fool some people into thinking it's just an expensive regular watch until the screen lights up. All the other smart watches on the market except for the LG G Watch R are square watches, including the Apple Watch when it gets here and the new Samsung Gear S. This is as close to a real watch as you can get. Also, unlike the Gear S and Apple watches, you can switch bands out to ANY standard watch band, and you have bumper cases (pictured) and skins to protect and style your watch with. The light sensor bar doesn't even bother you like some reviewers said it would. I've never had an issue viewing my screen in any light setting as well. Don't be swayed by these harsh magazine reviews pointing out the Moto's flaws, it just won't bother most users in reality. FITNESS: Why spend $100+ on a fitness band and etc when this watch has everything you need in it. Walking, running, biking, gym, etc, etc, it has it covered. You can even use Google Maps through this, with turn by turn vibrating alerts for walking/driving, and etc. The vibrating direction change alerts REALLY help when you are not paying attention or want to zone out yet be notified of direction changes. Google Fit has me not missing my Samsung S Health App and etc (and I almost didn't buy this watch for that reason alone), and you can monitor your heart rate on the fly and it's pretty accurate when worn correctly at that. You also have Nike and a few other health apps. FUNCTIONALITY: It takes a few minutes to get used to the UI (user interface), but you'll quickly jump right in. The vibrating alerts are just right and can be customized and muted as well. It's very easy to use and you can dismiss the notifications from piling up on your phone through you watch. The voice has some flaws (what doesn't??), but works fairly well for the most part. This comes in handy when your hands are full and you need to do commands through your watch. It's a developer's watch, so you can tweak and edit things that you could only dream of doing on other smart watches. The processors are older tech, but honestly, I have yet to encounter any lagging and etc that bothers you. Everything has it's flaws, no matter what it is and how much it costs. This device has very few. It's worth every penny, trust me!

    Best watch that is also smart

    As a watch, this thing looks beautiful. People seem to notice it fairly regularly and comment how nice it looks. So, it passes the fashion test if you plan on wearing this out to fancy shindigs. I make sure to wear nothing but short sleeves so that the watch really stands out. Also, when I'm talking to people face to face, I like to bring my hand up and pretend to rub my chin as if I'm seriously contemplating what they are saying but I'm just purposefully directing their attention to the watch on my wrist that is in their line of sight. It's made from very nice materials. For $250, you want something that doesn't feel like a toy, which this doesn't. And surprisingly for all the premium materials it's made from, the watch is very light. I've stopped wearing a watch for over 20 years because I couldn't find a manly watch that also didn't feel like I was weight lifting every time I wanted to see what time it was. I'm sure there is something out there, but I didn't want it to become a lifelong pursuit so I never bothered to embark on a holy grail search for one. But the Moto 360 looks very nice on my wrist and my arm doesn't get tired from lifting it every time I check it. Yeah, I'm weak but with this watch, it doesn't matter. Now, let's talk about the "smart" features. It buzzes to let me know when I receive a notification. If it's an unimportant notification, I can easily dismiss it away straight from the watch. I no longer have to struggle with trying to pull out my gigantic phone as it gets caught in my pocket nearly ripping a hole just to find out that there is a daily deal from best buy on microwaves. No sir, I can swipe that one away on my watch now and save wrestling with my phone for more important messages like from my mom reminding me to take my vitamins. And I'm a grown man already, but that's for a different review. I can control my music, Chromecast, and podcasts from my watch. Very sweet. I can make voice texts while I'm driv...um...walking so that I'm not engaging in dangerous and unsafe practices. Basically, it's allowed me to not have to pull my phone out as much during the day so that I can save my phone's battery for far more important business such as checking my Clash of Clans or how far I can launch my goat into the air in Goat Simulator. Battery life, oh man, sounds like I'm venturing into scary territory but ever since that fancy new update from Googorola, my watch far outlasts me. Typical day for me is 16 hours and the watch still has about 20% left. That translates to about another 5-6 hours so while I'm in bed after a long day, my watch can still go out clubbing my itself and be back home before I get up. So, for me, I'm very satisfied with the battery life of the Moto 360. Android wear is really helpful. The watch looks nice. It lasts as long as I need it to. Do I need to say more? I highly recommend this over any smart watch on the market so sell your Pebble, sell you G Watch and your Samsung bricks and choose the Moto 360. It runs circles around all of them. (Pun extremely intended)!

    Great Watch, Excellent Styling, Impressive

    I've owned the 360 for 4 days now. I'll start be talking about the battery, which seems to hang up most people. I have not run out of battery once. I have not had to charge during the day. I start my day taking it off the charger around 7am and put it back around 10:30pm or 11:00pm with plenty of battery life left (< 25%). This is during the first few days of use, when I'm constantly playing with it, measuring heart rates, trying new commands, new faces, etc. I do not use ambient mode - my screen turns off when not in use, which I like. It looks good in all black and responds nicely when I actually want to see the time. Now that that is out of the way. I will talk about the rest. Style: I love the round, simple style of the 360. I have black on black right now and will probably purchase more straps when available. The leather is soft, but sturdy. I have relatively small wrists for a man, but the watch looks great on my arm. I've already gotten compliments from strangers. The watch faces are customizable - i.e. choose the basic design, then you can change the background from white to black or vice-versa, and change the accent to one of almost twelve colors. Make it exactly the way you want it. Software: The Android Wear platform is great so far. I love getting messages on my wrist to quickly view a comment in a messaging app, or the latest score of the baseball game. I'm still learning all the different features, but I'm very happy with the main point of the watch - keeping time! I am not sure if this is specific to the Moto 360 or if other Android Wear phones do this, but on the watch face I chose, if you have a scheduled appointment at a specific time - the watch face highlights that region of the watch with white - showing when you have an appointment. As you approach that time - the minute markers highlight showing you how many minutes before your next appointment and they disappear as the time approaches. Finally, when you are in your appointment the region is highlighted again. Battery Life / Charging: I spoke earlier about battery and I won't go over it again expect to state: this has lasted me more than a full day each day I've had it without any worry of not making it. At the end of the day I place the phone on the wireless charger next to my bed and it's a nice night time clock. Ease of just resting it in the cradle without having to work a wonky adapter on it is great. Performance: I understand this watch has an older processor. I do not have a comparison watch to judge against, but to me the performance has been good. It reacts quickly to touches and swipes. Voice commands work well.

    Holy Smoke!

    I bought the Gear Live first and thought that the Android Wear experience would be the same. Then I read that the Moto 360 has an older CPU than Gear Live, and that maybe things would be more zippy on the Gear Live. Regardless, the Moto 360 looked better online so I decided to order it in addition to the Gear Live. Let me tell you this thus far: 1) Holy Moly! Not only is it infinitely more beautiful in real life compared to Gear Live, it is just beautiful on its own. I already got one compliment from a non-techie woman on the elevator. 2) The stone-color band is a new model. I received mine with the latest OS 4.4W.1 Build KGW42N, which fixes many of the issues others had when ordering the original colors. The hardware is the same, so if you receive an older firmware you MUST let it charge completely and it will update. The update will fix the way the screen operates so battery will be better. 3) I was wrong about the CPU and possibility of being slower than Gear Live. I don't know if it is something Samsung did or what Moto knows, but the Moto 360 is immediate and responsive to my commands to open apps. Gear Live stutters and makes the experience useless. Now I hear that Moto will soon release a new update with the same version, but higher build #. This could further improve battery and performance. 4) The heart rate sensor hasn't failed me once. The Gear Live is hit or miss (mostly miss). 5) I read somewhere that you should let it go through several 0-100% charge/discharge cycles. Over about a week, the battery will improve dramatically. 6) I love the watchfaces that Moto has included, and can be customized from your phone. In fact, the app reports battery level of the watch so you know even when it is charging in its dock, but not in front of it to see status. 7) I am proud of Moto for a knockout 1st gen device that actually works, is beautiful, and was released before the fugly-square Apple Watch. Thanks! Now let's see what you can do in version 2!

    Fantastic Watch!

    Posted

    This is hands down the best smartwatch to date. Besides being so difficult to get your hands on, there are so many fantastic things about the 360 I'm not even sure where to start. I'll keep this as concise as possible. Screen - Super bright, easily visible in direct sunlight (unlike most smartphones out there!), the rounded bezel is just gorgeous, and the small "flat tire" at the bottom is barely noticeable. The only issue is that the display is a little on the low side of pixel density, but not too big of a deal. Build quality - absolutely solid. Stainless steel feels great, horween leather is super soft and comfortable and still smells like new after 2 weeks of use Battery life - lots of complaints can be heard from everywhere, but if you leave ambient mode off, you can easily get battery life of up to 30-40 hours. I currently sit at 27% and have been off the charger for 28 hours. (granted 7 of those hours was idle b/c I was asleep; purposely left it off the charger to test battery life). Honestly, I feel a smartwatch should have battery life of greater than a few days, but if you don't mind charging it up every night, you will never need to baby the battery during the day. Performance - There was a tiny bit of lag when I first got it, but the update that came out last night (9/24) basically fixed almost everything. Now there are no bluetooth drops ever and zero lag. I expect future updates to make this watch feel even better than ever. This is really impressive for Moto to pull off, considering they're using a processor that is 4 years old. Usability - Android wear is honestly still unpolished. It feels a bit unintuitive at times, with google now cards not doing what you think they would do, with google search being your gateway to all the actions, and with only a handful of apps that currently support android wear. Of course, I fully understand that, as an early adopter, this is what to expect for a first iteration of anything android. That's why I have really high hopes for this 360 as time goes on. When google now works for you, it works amazingly. I love seeing how long it will take me to go somewhere right before I leave the house, I love the ability to set location based reminders, and I love being able to act on emails and texts without ever pulling my phone out of my pocket. The software and hardware may be in its infancy, but I am so excited for the future of my 360. Overall, I would 110% recommend this to anyone on the fence about it. Get it first and you will fall in love with it, I guarantee it!!!

    Moto 360

    Introduction: The Smartwatch market is about to get very interesting 2015. With the impending release of the Apple Watch, and CES kicking off within days of this review, the Smartwatch market will see many companies trying their hand at good Smartwatch design. The Moto 360 managed to not only be one of the first Smartwatches available, but also the best looking, by a long shot. Without further ado here are the points that stood out. Build: Currently, most Smartwatch manufacturers are sticking with plastic as the go-to material. Motorola on the other hand has decided to go with the ideal material, metal. The body of the Moto 360 is absolutely beautiful; polished aluminum, and glass. It doesn't get much better than that. In addition to the high end materials directly on the watch, Motorola also included a very comfy and high end Horween leather strap. This altogether gives the Moto 360 a premium look and feel. Nothing on the market can match it at this point. Display: The display leaves much to be desired. It is a good starting point, but pixels are easily discernible. Consumers are accustomed to today's Retina HD and Quad HD displays, so seeing the Moto 360's display for the first time can be a bit jarring to pixel sensitive eyes. If pixel count is an after-thought for you, then ignore the criticisms.  Software: The Moto 360 in it's current state features a pretty stable Android Wear 5.0 which also includes the almost perfect Google Now, custom watch faces, apps, Google Fit, Motorola's fitness software, and notifications. It is meant to be more in sync with Android 5.0 Lollipop, and at the same time give the user more options when customizing the look and feel.  Battery Life:  The Moto 360 has never been a champion of battery life. The luxury of having a beautiful time piece around the wrist comes at the cost of battery life. Even with the display off a majority of the day, you would be lucky to get more than a day and a half of use per charge. This may be ok for some, and a deal breaker for others, but it depends on your expectations. Comparably, the Pebble Smartwatch is advertised to last five to seven days on one charge which is great.  Extras:  In the box, the Moto 360 includes a nifty inductive charging base station, power adapter, and some literature. Inductive charging makes charging the Moto 360 a cinch! You simply lay the watch in the cradle and it begins to charge (a nice aside, while charging, the watch can double as a night stand clock).  The Moto 360, and it's companion app from Motorola include a suite of fitness applications to take advantage of the included pedometer and heart rate monitor. The software is designed to analyze your movements and heart rate periodically to give you a overview of your general activity. The software is relatively easy to use, and helpful.  Conclusion:  The Moto 360 is easily the most beautiful Smartwatch available today, by a long shot. Considering most Smartwatches today run some variant of Android Wear, the only decision left to the consumer is what form factor they prefer. Considering this is the only Smartwatch suitable for a professional environment, this will probably be the go-to for most prospective Smartwatch shoppers. The design, material choice, price, and software make the Moto 360 a no brainer when considering the competition. But for the general population, Smartwatches remain a gadget for only the truest of tech enthusiasts.

    Beyond a doubt one the best watch purchases I've made in years. I have more watches than I'll admit to in print... Bad news : Battery life sucks- On at 6:30 am and at 50% by 8:30. It took a while to get that range. I keep the faces to low power (thank you Intellicom app!) and wifi to home at nights. Not really a go to for all day adventures as an activity tracker. Not completely able to use any 22mm band (tiny groove in the middle why?) and the spring coils are evil little demons. Messing with the band will more than likely cause the infamous cracks on the back. The heart rate monitor makes me wish I had my fitbit back or maybe I'm heartless. It doesn't report monitoring unless you activate the app. Again miss the fitbit but only when I want to track activity levels because... The good part: This is a watch collector must have! The silver/stone combo is the ultimate neutral. On my girly wrist, it doesn't come off too manly and on husband's it looks just right. I like big ole chronograph watches so there wasn't a moment of "Gah! What is Big Ben doing on my wrist?!" Some reviews said it looked odd from the side and yup, it does now that you mention it.. but that angle is not a common position so okay.. I wish the band was more flush with the casing so I needn't worry about the back cracking.. But it gets compliments almost daily. The leather is study and has worn to a nice weathered look. Which is way better than the black strapped ones. I know people with the black band it looks crinkled and ready to replace within a few months. The UI is very intuitive. I love all the geeky things it can do. Everything from running my car radio, buzzing me to turn left, finding my phone and replying to texts without digging for the phone in my purse. Notifications are more subtle in meetings. Paring this to my old HTC m7 and now Galaxy s6 edge was easy. Yes, I now match outfits to watch faces, this might stop someday but until then I've got a great watch to play with at a great price point. Tech geek is more than appeased.

    Love it! Better than expected

    First - battery life. It's fine. The first day I was using the watch, learning about all the apps and capabilities. The battery was ready to charge by the time I went to bed. Every day after that, I used the watch in a more normal manner. I use it to text every now and then, check my heart rate, and have notifications turned on. I've consistently had around 30-40% charge remaining when I went to bed. I love the charging cradle. When you cradle the watch, it goes into this display that serves as an alarm clock and stays lit. This is way cool! I got rid of my big bulky alarm clock and now use only the 360. It's just the right brightness in the cradle - not too bright that it's distracting at night. No problem connecting to my Moto X. Phone and watch stay connected at decent distances. When you do walk too far from your phone, the watch automatically connects back when you get into range. When you mute the ringer on your phone, the watch will vibrate when you get a call. Another way cool feature. Sometimes I turn my ringer off when I'm in a meeting then forget to turn it back on. I used to miss calls, now I don't. Nice! Now, Best Buy's website for weeks has been saying "unavailable in your area" when I try to see if it's in a local store. I was in Best Buy last week looking at a monitor, and just on a whim went to look at smart watches. Lo and behold, they had TWO Stone Leather watches in stock, even though the website didn't indicate this. I recommend calling or checking in your local store - they may have one. I wanted the black band, but they only had stone. But, I LOVE THIS COLOR! It looks very sharp with the aluminum frame. When my leather band wears out or is looking dirty, I'll eventually get a metal band. But, I'm pleasantly surprised how good the stone leather band looks. I had a huge panic attack - I was stupid and clumsy and dropped my watch from above waist height on our porcelain tile floor, and it make a huge 'whack' sound. I thought for sure the face was cracked. It landed on the watch, not the bands. But, no damage, no adverse effects. Whew! So, it's pretty durable. The watch is pretty thick - sort of like my Ir0nm@n watch. So every now and then I bump it on something. I plan to get one of those military grade screen protectors and see how that works. Overall, VERY HAPPY. The round face makes this watch THE watch to get over anything else out there. It looks very stylish and fits right in with a suit and tie.

    Best watch ever

    The watch is a winner. The recent firmware updates have greatly improved the battery life. In fact, I've been using mine regularly all day and still have 45% battery at 10:00pm. After reading other reviews, I adopted the method of checking the watch, glancing at emails and messages, and briefly scanning over GPS directions instead of treating the watch as an equal to my Note 3. Instead, use this device as a time saver to interact with your phone, and you'll be pleasantly surprised by its battery and usability. The Android Wear ecosystem is still in its infancy, but it's already proven an exceptional experience. More work has yet to be done for 3rd party apps, but this will improve once the Wear APIs are released. So far though, it is an impressive debut into the wearable realm. The look and functionality of this device actually convinced me to leave my beloved iPhone. While the Apple Watch isn't yet available, it does not appear to appreciate what a smartwatch ought to be, a quick tool for glancing at your phone's notifications and activities. The Card based design is beautifully intuitive and glance friendly, and a quick tap on the screen prepares the watch to listen to a command without needing to shout out "OK Google." A single push button on the side provides a way to trigger settings, power options, or just turning off the display. No squinting or turning of a crown required. Regarding the screen, my job requires heavy driving and a lot of viewing of the watch outdoors or in the car. Rest assured, the screen can be read with clarity and ease. I have not run into a situation yet when I couldn't read the display, and my eyes are terrible. The watch looks great, wears comfortably, and is amazingly useful. No typing and no clicking get in the way of you using the device quickly. The swipes can take some getting accustomed to, but they are so intuitive and the card design so efficient, you should have no problems incorporating it into your daily routine. I do wish a speaker were included, offering pairing options with the audio from your phone, but the drain on the battery probably nixes that idea. Other than that, this is a gorgeous and intuitive device. This device is not just for early adopters, Motorola released the first smartwatch truly ready for the masses. If you are an Android user or considering making the switch to Android, you should definitely consider purchasing the best Android accessory available.

    Best Android Wear Smartwatch

    Loving my Moto 360 so far. I do not typically wear watches, but for some reason, I need to wear my 360 all the time. I have received numerous compliments, especially from iphone users who thought it was the iwatch, later to find out its android and then wishing the iwatch was round instead of square like most of the other smartwatches. Battery life is much better after the last 2 updates. I can get through the whole day with a lot of notifications (email, text, hangouts, google now cards etc). Do I wish the battery life was better, of course. But do I need it to last more than a day, nope. I don't wear my watch to sleep so its easy enough to place it on the wireless charger at the end of the day. The charger is definitely the best smartwatch charger currently out there. Again, It also would've been nice to have the fastest and most recent processor out there, but even with the TI processor, I hardly have any issues with connectivity, lag, receiving notifications or even replying to texts. It is actually pretty accurate when it comes to responding to hangouts and text messages using the watch. In fact, I hardly have issues in places with a lot of loud background noise. Yes, I need to put the watch closer to my face, but that doesn't really look any more weird than talking to your watch in the first place. If you want the better battery and faster processor, go ahead and get the LG gr, but no way you're gonna spend less than $300 on that. That's another great thing with the 360, is the 249 price tag. Well worth it in my opinion. Not so sure about spending 300+ on the LG or Iwatch when it probably does the same thing but just a little bit faster with just a little bit more battery life. Overall, I completely recommend this to anyone that likes Android, likes new technology and likes to wear watches that not only look nice but have multiple uses. I remember walking into a fancy watch store at the forum shops in Vegas and seeing these expensive watches for 1000+. I asked the lady working there, can these watches show you your text or email notifications or can you change the watch face to whatever picture you want? She just laughed and then asked what watch I had. Another thing that I like about the watch is not having to use my phone most of the time. I have terrible signal at work, but I can just leave my phone at my desk where I get some signal, and walk around my classroom receiving my notifications. It saves the battery on my phone and it's a whole lot better than taking my phone out every time I get a notification. Yes, you can do this with any smartwatch, but does it look as good as the 360? Doubtful. Also changing watch faces with the Facer app is even better with the sleek look of the 360. The step counter does not seem as accurate, but I have a Fitbit anyways so I do not really use the 360 for that.

    Awesome Watch...Okay Battery

    I love this watch....i know this review is early but i received this about a week ago from Motorola...very nice looking watch...does everything you want it to do BUT i don't like the battery life it last just about the same as any other phone out there (less than a full day)...my phone seems to out last it only because it gets the random middle of the day charge....when i cant do the same with the watch because i refuse to carry the wireless charging dock around with me (which is awesome) i work in retail and to give everyone an example...leaving the house at 8am at 100% at about noon its at 75% with normal usage of swiping away random livingsocial and groupon email notifications and such at around 3pm its dropped to an average of about 45% due to answering text messages and relying more on the watch for everything because phone is more likely charging or not near at about 7pm its other 10% or less (but im on my way home anyway) only thing that sucks about that is if i ever had plans for dinner or anything after work i know this watch couldn't make it but when this watch is on its on....looks great..no issues..just hate the battery..its taken a few hits as well...the gorilla glass seems to be okay just wish it was sapphire glass only because it a higher quality..i would grab this watch if your in the market...

    I've been following this watch for some time, and after the initial reviews I was hesitant about the battery life. However, after using this watch for some time now, I'm convinced that it's a good bet for what is still a very new field of devices. Also, with the update released recently (9/26/14), the battery life and responsiveness have both increased tremendously. The watch works well with notifications, and it's generally unobtrusive. Also, I was worried about this watch being huge from other reviews, but holding it up to my old watch, I found it to be pretty reasonably sized. I wear cuffed shirts for work on a regular basis,and it fits under my sleeves now problem. Pros: -Very lightweight -Battery can now last well over a day of moderate use. If you use it heavily, it should make it well over a work day, and likely 10-12 hours. -Very responsive after update, and I'm noticing no lag. -The voice recognition was great, and I've found myself using my watch to respond to texts. Cons: -Battery isn't like a pebble, so you should charge it every night, maybe two. -Notifications seem to be tied to cards on google now, so if you dismiss them from your watch, you won't see the update on your phone within an hour or so, depending on what it is. -Face support. Facer is an excellent app for finding new watch faces, but there are only 10 faces or so stock. Overall, I would recommend this for anyone interested in a smartwatch. It is a beautiful piece of hardware that functions as a timepiece and an adjunct to your smartphone.

    I really cannot take my eyes off of my moto 360-stone leather band! I was lucky enough to snatch one right before it was sold out in a mere 30 minutes when this color first came out to best buy! I've been getting a lot of compliments on how beautiful it looks, and I do agree it's a great looking device with a lot to offer! I love being able to show it off to people who ask me "how can you tell time when the screen is all black?!". I just flick my wrist, give it a few swipes and amaze the crowd! I like that I can get all of my notifications while I'm in a meeting, driving, or if I leave my phone in my office to meet with employees, I don't miss a thing! The battery life is great, my moto 360 gets off the charger at 7:30am and by the time I get home at 7:00pm it's still around 50-60% charged, and I do get a lot of notifications!!! Sometimes I can go for 2 days without fully charging it. I just throw it on the charger when I wake up to wash up/get dressed for work for 30 mins, and by the time I take it off to leave, it's good to last for the rest of the day. I like how most of the apps are free on android wear, unlike the pebble which charges you when you download the companion apps in the play store. In addition, I don't have to download extra apps to control music, or display notifications with foreign languages (ex. Chinese) as I do get notifications on Whatsapp and WeChat. Android Wear still has a lot of space for improvement, but so far I have no complains and love having it on my wrist everyday!!! I can't wait for the other android wear smartwatches to come out!

    Better than I expected

    I'd been waiting on this watch for just over 6 months (announcement in March, on sale in September). I had a Pebble Steel on order in February but when this was announced I immediately cancelled that order - no matter how long I would have to wait for the Moto 360 to be released. I ordered the Silver/Gray and am very impressed with the overall look/feel of the watch and materials used. I've received numerous compliments and inquisitive looks from people. Even had my dentist ask what kind of watch it was since it had a black face :) Overall, it's more than I expected in the look/feel/function departments. Look - not as big as I was expecting it to be (definitely a plus) Feel - much lighter than I was expecting - barely know it's there half the time (another plus) Function - here's another area I've been impressed with. This is my first smart-watch and as far as function goes - I know it isn't supposed to replace my phone (LG Nexus 5). I've seen many reviews/comments from people wishing there was a way to type on a keyboard on the watch or browse the web. Since it's running android, I'm sure there are plenty of entrepreneurial people out there that can/will make those things happen. For me, the beauty of android wear (and this watch) is being able to (at a glance) see what notifications are coming into my phone and either take action on them on the watch, or dismiss them on the watch/phone so I don't have to worry about them - all without taking my phone out of my pocket. The list of wear-compatible apps is growing by the day and there is definitely even more potential for this watch/android wear. From a battery life perspective, I was also skeptical after reading initial reviews. After a couple of android wear software updates over the last 6 weeks, the battery life has kept improving. I can easily get through a day without worrying about whether my watch is going to be able to even tell me the time later on that night. A typical day for me has the watch off the charger (at 100%) and on my wrist around 7:30am. As I'm writing this, it's 1:10pm and it still has 76% left. Most nights when I go to bed (around 11pm or 12am) there is still at least 30% or so left. Actual mileage will, of course, vary based on how often you're using it and what you're using it for. At $250 it is a bit pricey compared to other current offerings in this space. However, it is cheaper than other high-end watches you can buy as well. If you're debating whether or not to get this vs something else out there in the smart-watch arena - stop debating and place an order. You will not be disappointed!

    There needs to be diversity in development. The watch face is definitely made for a man's wrist. Women wear watches, too! I knew it would be too big, but I wanted to play with the technology (rather than wait until it dawns on the hardware developers that there are women interested in tech and willing to spend money). My son will get this once I am finished playing with it. It can only be paired to one device, which is a bummer. I wanted to be able to pair it with my Nexus 5 and my Nexus 7. I found a post with instructions on how to get the watch to be able to switch between devices, but I haven't tried it yet. Setting it up with my Nexus 5 was incredibly easy. It just worked. Charging it is simple, and I haven't noticed a problem with the battery (but I haven't had it that long). The heart rate monitor has worked just fine. It tracks my steps more accurately than my fitbit does (I knew that my fitbit was overestimating my steps). It is nice to be able to control my phone with the watch. And the e-mail notifications are really convenient. The screen is nice, though the blacked out section on the bottom part of the watch is a little distracting. But again, I knew that it was there when I ordered it. So there were no surprises. Overall, I am happy with the functionality of the product. I just wish it were smaller. But that doesn't affect the number of stars I am giving to the product…I knew what it was when I ordered it. And it is a really neat gadget. For people who want a more refined product, you might want to wait until the next iteration. I am glad that I purchased it, and will be sad when I pass it along to my son. But he will only get it when I find something better!

    A great **watch**

    I picked up my Moto 360 on Saturday and feel like I have spent enough time with it to give a honest review. Generally, I really like it. It is comfortable, works as advertised, and enhances my phone experience. The important thing to remember is that it is a watch, that has smart capabilities. I have it paired with my Samsung Galaxy S5 and have not experienced any issues with connectivity or notifications. Battery life: Managing the screen brightness is the key here. The standard settings within the watch allow for 5 brightness levels (+0) but I have found that the Wear Mini Launcher app lets me dial back the brightness even more using an Android-like brightness slider. The lowest setting is still plenty bright for my daily grind. I have found through using this method that after 12 hours I have 65-70% battery remaining which is more than manageable. I will use exercise for the context of practical use. My biggest disappointment is the lack of fitness app support. I had to stop using MapMyRun because it still does not have an Android Wear app. RunKeeper's app is not perfect though, since it does not allow you to select a pre-saved route from the Android Wear interface, only allowing you to start or stop an activity. While running I can see my run stats on the screen, and I use my Jaybird Freedom bluetooth headphones with no issues. I can control music from the watch pre, and post workout as long as I start Play Music before I place the phone in my armband. You cannot open Play Music from Android Wear. For during workout music control I use the buttons on the headphones so this is not a problem. The biggest complaint is the microphone and "Okay Google" integration. It is tricky and you have to say your command at the right time... I am completely happy with my purchase and it has met my expectations as a watch first, smart device second. I am looking forward to seeing how this platform develops...

    Really amazing watch

    OK, so I have seen a lot of reviews on this watch claiming that the battery life is terrible. From my experience this is true/false depending on who you are. The watch should not be set to always on for the screen. I think it looks amazing with the screen off set to turn on when raised to your eye level. The watch simply put is AWESOME. I love this watch so much and have all the intentions of keeping it. The wireless charging is great and also fast! I was able to charge the watch at a rate of about 1% per minute. I took it off the charger the first night at 10 PM and it died the next night at 7 PM and that was with A LOT of playing with it and notifications coming in about 5-8 per hour sometimes more. The vibration was always on for notifications and the watch screen was set to automatic brightness. So yeah, the watch could have a better battery but ya know what? This is one of those situations where the watch's looks and functionality WAYYY outweigh the battery issue some people are complaining about. If you are on the fence about this watch and can get your hands on one, just try it out. Everyone has different preferences and experiences but don't let the negativity put you off about the Moto 360. This watch is sick!

    Awesome device!!

    First off let me get the battery issue out the way. I received my watch on Friday and as soon as I turned it on it prompted me to install the lastest update which addressed the battery issues. I haven't experienced any issues with battery (some reviewers claimed they couldnt make it through the day with moderate use). I took it off the charger at 9am and received moderate notifications and also showed it off to my friends. When I made it home I kept it on my wrist and went to sleep. I woke up the next day at 11am with 9% left. Now to the watch itself...........I love the Moto 360 because its look like a normal watch. The software isn't perfect but what is. Very seldom it stutters but its tolerable. I have experienced a couple of disconnects from my phone even with the lastest firmware but I dont know if has anything to do with the apps I installed. I say that because I didnt start to lose connection until I started downloading apps (it happened twice in 2 days). Other than that everything is okay. The navigation is easy to pick up on. The watch faces that come with the watch are pretty decent and there are a few apps in the market that let you customize even more. The build is excellent, the software is decent, and the battery is good. The watch allows you to decline or answer a call (you have to use the phone to talk), view and reply to emails and texts, full control over music thats playing on phone, adjust volume, toggle wifi, toggle ring/vib/sil, and much more. This by far is the best looking smartwatch on the market. Please remember that this is a first gen device and in my opinion is living up to the hype. Motorola has something and I pray that they continue to go in the right direction to make this the greatest line of smartwatches for years to come. For you guys that can't wait for Motorola to release their metal bands I purchased a Pebble stainless steel band and its look great with my Moto 360.

    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 will 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 will 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.

    Review of Moto 360 after 2 weeks of use

    Posted
    FebS
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Alright, this is my Updated Review after 2 weeks of using Moto 360. Do note that Moto 360 just received a New Firmware Update yesterday (9/24/2014): http://www.gottabemobile.com/2014/09/25/moto-360-update-brings-connection-and-battery-improvements/ What does this mean? - Connection drops don't happen anymore! It's been 2 days for me and I don't have a single connection drop at all. I used to get 2-4 drops each day prior to this update. - Battery life is significantly improved! I used to get between 12-16 hours before the update, but now I can easily get a full day (24 hours)! Do note that the battery drains faster for the first 5-10% (from 100% to 95 or 90%). I'm not sure why but this happens on my Galaxy S4 and S3 phones as well. As a side note, I turn off Ambient Mode and set the Brightness to Auto. And yes, the WOW factor of this watch is just one of the biggest plus points. People praise the coolness and sleekness of this watch, what it can do, etc. And there are more and more useful apps that Android Wear has. I keep checking for new apps once every few days so I can tell you what apps that can go well with Moto 360. These are just some Wear-specific apps that I have installed: http://goo.gl/bOJCJa. There are other apps that are not Wear-specific i.e. these apps can work both on your phone and Moto 360 e.g. Evernote, GroupMe, WhatsApp, and many more. The To-do List feature on Evernote is personally one of my favorite Apps for Moto 360. This is the list of Wear Apps that I think are pretty cool: http://goo.gl/ddPEmQ. Some of these apps work perfectly, some are not fully optimized yet for round Android Smartwatches (like Moto 360) but the developers have promised to work hard to make it fully compatible with Moto 360. I know Android Wear is new, v.1 but trust me, the apps are getting better and better each day and I know my decision to buy Moto 360 was right. I initially gave myself and Moto 360 two weeks to see if we "could get along well" with each other as I could always return it within 14 days. Now, I am not looking back and am completely happy with this. My only complain is the price. I personally feel $250 is still a steep price. $150 would be just perfect. A lot of my friends do think $250 is high too.
