My first gen Moto 360 updated this morning. Waiting to see how well it works because I have to charge it again. It was on the charger all night and when it was done updating the OS and apps, 30 min later, it was down to %45 battery.
I imagine that it was something like that when they made Android Wear:
-Hey! lets make watch that is just to show time, notification and basic info/controls of phone!
-But what about system? Its should be small and optimized to do what it should do and not take too much battery power.
-Nah! Lets put there Android system that just act like watch! And 4Ghz CPU and 16GB of RAM! Thats what smartwatch need to show notifications and time!
-Quiet! Just imagine how many money we gonna get for updates every year!
