Moto 360 Sport review: Solid smartwatch, subpar workout tool

 

The original Moto 360 was the first Android Wear watch to get people really excited about the platform. The second was a thoughtful update, if not exactly a game-changer. And now we have a third, the new Moto 360 Sport, which has a slightly different...

Hybrid" display works great ; GPS does a respectable job tracking runs ; Lightweight and comfortable

Can't swap out the watch band ; Could use more physical controls ; Battery life could have been better

The Moto 360 Sport doesn't stray too far from the path this year's other Moto 360s took, but goodies like its AnyLight hybrid display make it great watch for the outdoors. It's plenty snappy for an Android Wear watch, too -- we just wish the hardware...

Moto 360 review: It's the best Android Wear watch, but that isn't saying much

 

The Moto 360 is the most attractive Android Wear device you can buy right now, with a design that's more reminiscent of a regular watch. Even so, it suffers from poor battery life, just like other early smartwatches, and it has a higher price, too.

Beautiful design ; Comfortable and lightweight ; Leather and metal straps ; Ambient light sensor ; Wireless charging

Terrible battery life ; Large size isn't for everyone ; Pricey for an Android Wear watch ; Charging cradle doesn't come with a USB cable

With its stylish good looks, comfortable feel and overall premium build, the Moto 360 is the Android Wear watch to beat. When it comes to design, at least, it outclasses everything else on the market. Aside from aesthetics, the 360 offers many of the...

Motorola Moto 360 Stone Leather Band

 

Motorola's Moto 360 was the first draw-dropping wearable concept of 2014 when it was teased back in March: a round watch running futuristic Google software, it seemed like a device descended from the middle future. Clearly, this was the next wave of...

The Moto 360's distinctive round design and premium materials look sharp. It's lightweight and comfortable, and it doubles as a bedside clock with its clever included inductive charging cradle.

Its battery life is not good enough for a watch. Its Android Wear software is awkward and not entirely useful, its fitness features are lacking, and its round display has a weird black bar at the bottom.

The Moto 360 tries to be the ultimate smartwatch, but it just ends up being a better-looking Android Wear watch with some notable limitations.

Relatively sophisticated design ; Wireless dock makes charging easy ; Legible outdoors

Too big for many wrists ; Battery life is a deal-breaker ; Annoying glitches abound

Weak battery life, technical glitches and a bulky frame mar Motorola's first smartwatch.

Motorola Moto 360

 

Motorola's Moto 360 is the best-looking smartwatch you can get right now, and Android Wear works surprisingly well considering how young the OS is, but the single-day battery life and lack of waterproofing might deter some.

Beautiful design. Premium materials. Snappy performance. Runs Android Wear. Compatible with any Android device running 4.3 or higher

Voice recognition needs work. Weak battery life. Display could be sharper. Not waterproof

Advertently or not, manufacturers releasing smartwatches running Android Wear are technically wristwatch designers. For the most part, they're leaving the operating system and its functionality in Google's able, OS-developing hands. Motorola...

Moto 360 review

 

I lost my phone this morning. Normally that's impossible. My phone is always either in my pocket or in my hands, because missing an email or a text or a killer snap is just entirely...

Gorgeous design ; Great voice recognition ; Round is the right form factor ; Nice, interchangeable straps

Frustrating battery life ; Round display causes some software awkwardness

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

 

The first thing that struck me about the Moto 360 Sport is how together it felt. While the first Moto 360 seemed the epitome of style at the time back when it was launched in late 2014, it was also rolling with a replaceable watch strap system that was...

Fitness trackers, the Pebble, and Samsung's myriad of Gear-branded smartwatches may have kickstarted the wrist-worn wearables trend, but the true test for this category is just beginning. While Apple recently put the watch world on notice with Apple...

Moto 360 Review: Flawed Charm

 

The Moto 360 has a lot to live up to. Motorola's wearable spoiled our first taste of Android Wear smartwatches back in July, leaving the first square-faced examples to run the platform looking hopelessly geeky in comparison. Arguably the closest to a...

Charming but flawed is perhaps the kindest way to describe the Moto 360. Motorola’s circular smartwatch looks better than any other on the market, feels great, and is eye-catching in the way that an indulgence gadget arguably should be. Nobody really...

Motorola Moto 360 Smartwatch Review

 

All-around smart? Motorola puts its Moto 360 smart watch with leather band and classic design into the smart watch race -- and, at first glance, the Moto 360 makes a good first impression. Our report will check to see if this $249 USD gadget, in...

Noble materials, Dust and water resistant, Compatible with many Android devices, Wristband adjustable in many lengths, Bright screen, Wireless charging feature

Bulky casing, Inaccurate sensors, Use sometimes awkward, Speech detection sometimes inaccurate, Circular display slices contents

The Moto 360 is Motorola’s rather stylish entry into the smart watch market,. The materials are of good quality, and the circular display is a nice change from the earlier square smart watches. Users should definitely update to Android Wear 5.0.1...
