The build of Moto 360 is not a real build of a real watch. The band is locked at the very bottom of the watch....only Lg watch and apple watch has the characteristics of a real watch build, but again the Lg watch feels cheaper as well
Moto 360 and Apple Watch are the only two smartwatches I like so far. I hope Motorola continue on their design path and usage of good materials.
Actually its moto 300 . 60 degree of it doesnt cover with screen .
I bought one on Saturday and have to agree every bit in this review.
I own a couple expensive watch and the moto360 has become my favourite everyday watch. This phone is not perfect, but great first attempt and I have no complaint.
1) The bottom cutoff, it is an eyesore, if you don't like it, just don't buy it and until next year
2) If the screen goes all white, you will see the edge of the cirular glass is reflecting unwanted pixel to your eyes, moto should have make it smooth or dome shape.
3) The resolution needs to be improved
4) I wish I can answer phone and play music with this watch.
For battery life, 8am to 8pm, I still get 60%, so the new firmware fixed the battery draining. Too bad, it won't last more than 2 days.
bought ,used for 15 days and now its up for sale...back to my gear1...i was really misiing that amoled screen,camera(mighty useful) and the ability to as a stand alone music player (play music not in ky country)..only downside is its size and its tied to samsung phone...
motorola y did u cut on display res...swioing gestures are very irritating..its thick if not big and sits on the wrist like a carrom board striker...
The only thing this watch can do is to have watchfaces,did see also Google now for a moment,but I do not see myself talking to a watch,at list not in public ,(it even does not work well outdoors) but wat else can it do without me losing my finger from wiping?
so much work to get to one function looks like the first smartwatch ever,a prototype.
The watch itself looks nice and I would like to have one,but this watch isn't as smart as it looks and live view from 2011 could do more,faster and easier. and the battery life...
And APPLE WATCH arrive and will show all the companies out there (yet again) how to do a proper product!!!
Again APPLE needs to show everyone the way...
1st it was with Smartphones (and mobile OS), then with Tablets and now its time for Smartwatches so eveyone could follow the way of how it should be done!!!
meh, motorola with their inferior hardware, watch that can on with ambient sensor is awkward and annoying, watch should always on not just black screen when not used, baterry life is big hazzle too.
I had a plans to bay this watch, but >1 year and still no Kitkat on Motorola XT925. Good bay Motorola!!! yesterday I just order Nokia lumia 930
you just put as the "Main disadvantages"
->>> "Android Wear tries to do too many things at once"
yet the next line you are complaining about
"Motorola Moto 360 lags behind some of its competitors in terms of hardware specs"
i don't get it, make up tour mind.
It's great to see you making reviews also for smartwatches, I really want to read your opinion on every device i am willing to buy.
Keep'em coming :)
The first of a series.
These watches are actualy a work in progress.They remind us the first Android phones, so only time will tell how far they'll go.
