Motorola Moto 360 review

Motorola Moto 360

In the matter of looks, Moto 360 stands on top being the only circular smartwatch, outclassing everything else in the market. The stylish looks, the premium build and the comfy levels make it the best Android watch.

Keeping the looks aside, it offers many of the same features as those in its competition, that include a heart rate sensor, pedometer and other goodies like wireless charging, water resistance and an ambient light sensor.

It has a 1.56 inch round LCD display with Gorilla Glass 3, the IPS panel is good and it lights up every time you turn your wrist around to look at your watch. The brushed metal finish with leather strap looks attractive. One long press on the button at the sides will give you access to all the features. And all your notifications pop up on your watch immediately when you pair it up with your Android 4.3 or 4.4 smartphone.

It also lets you receive calls, but the only drawback is that you will have to take the phone out of your pocket to receive the call. The only challenge here is responding to the SMSs and email via voice recognition, that almost failed in recognizing the voice. But using google maps on the small screen is very much convenient while travelling. Moto 360, sadly, does not have an all-day battery life if used to full capabilities. The average period id only 14-15 hours

If you really want a smart watch this one’s the best in the market today. This is fun to use but Rs.17, 999 is a bit too much to spend on a gadget that is now evolving.

Moto 360 was designed to be timeless—and that goes for our software, too!

  • Smart Battery Saving – When your battery hits 15%, your Moto 360 will turn off ambient mode, so you don’t have to remember to.

  • Timely Time Checks – Moto 360 will synchronize the time with your phone more often to make sure it is up to the minute.

  • User Interface Tweaks – We observed with consumers that there are many times where you want to use your Moto 360 as truly a classic watch—a beautiful way to see the time. A new gesture now lets you see the full watch face without permanently dismissing a notification. Just touch the top of a notification and swipe down. You’ll see the notification again when you have another high priority notification.

  • Mood Lighting – Moto 360 will adjust to the lighting of the room while charging, so that it isn’t too bright or too dark.

  • Readying the wires for Bluetooth - There are a couple of under-the-hood enhancements that will pave the way for connecting Bluetooth headsets to the watch.

  • Bug Squashing - As usual, bugs are squashed to enhance the overall user experience.

We will roll out the new software in phases. Look for the update notification on your watch! You will be prompted to install. To install the update, make sure that you’re connected to your phone with an internet connection and that your watch has at least 80% battery.
