Moto360 Review

moto 360 and ipodMy brother, the coolest brother, gave me a Christmas gift early this year. We typically give each other gifts a few days before events but 2 months has been the earliest so far. I guess I’m going to have to one-up him on that later. Back to the gift, my brother gifted me the Moto360 Android watch.

Before diving into the watch deeper, I’d like to say that it’s built really well. The only thing that wasn’t so great is the black bar at the bottom. I’m not sure why but I think a complete circle would have put this watch over the top.

After wearing it for a week, I’ve come to love and hate it. Here are the good things:

  • I don’t have to open my phone to see what notifications came up.
  • I know that my heart rate doesn’t go above 85 during my day.
  • I can send quick texts.
  • I can find the answers to anything if it’s on the internet.
  • It looks great.

Here are the not so great things:

  • I received random notifications at random times.
  • Battery life, for me, is about 16 hours.
  • It doesn’t play music.
  • It doesn’t show my pictures.
  • Not a great base set of applications.
  • I was hoping for a sleep monitor.

I’ve worn my iPod Nano 6th Generation as a watch since they came out in 2010 and I’ve hoped that future smartwatches would copy and add more instead of removing items. I love playing music, looking through photos, and listening to the radio. These new smart watches do nothing but send me alerts everything my phone has an alert.

Not that I mind the alerts, it’s just that I miss plugging in my ear buds to my wrist area and taking a jog through the woods. The heart rate monitor and step monitor has been my friend so far on this watch. I definitely know that I walk over 10,000 steps a day and my heart rate is active about 33% in my day. The question is what will I do with this information? They say I should double what I’m doing now in order to get into better shape.

Oh, during Thanksgiving, the watch came in handy. “Set timer for 25 minutes.” This was an additional timer to help me keep the dishes on track.

I have had some great conversations with people who have commented that they admire my watch and want to learn more about it. I simply give them a small tour of the features and end it by sending at random contact a message saying ‘hello’.

The reviews out on the web do not do any smartwatch any justice. I’ve look at the other watches for sale right now and I can say that the Moto360 has to be the best looking watch there is for Droid phones (especially since they all use the same technology).
