New Moto 360: Two sizes, sleeker design, but still has that black bar on the face (hands-on)

 

This is the new Moto 360 (not the Moto 360 2 as was widely touted) Android Wear smartwatch. It's a sleeker smartwatch than its predecessor, embodying a number of tweaks and enhancements. But it's still got that darn black band at the bottom of the...

More model sizes and choices, Moto Maker options, sleeker design, longer-lasting battery

Still has that black band on the lower part of watch face

Moto 360 (2014) review

 

Motorola's first smartwatch has looks, but lacks longevity

Stylish circular design ; Great build quality ; Affordable price ; Wireless charging

Battery life is poor ; Inefficient processor ; Few default faces

Scores in depth Moto 360 proves that smartwatches can be as fashionable as its Google Now-integrated software is functional, making it the first Android Wear watch worth strapping to your wrist.

Motorola Moto 360 review

 

When Android Wear - Google's operating system for wearables - was announced, three devices lined up for scrutiny: the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live and the Moto 360. Of the three, the Moto 360 was heralded as the best of the bunch, the apple of Android...

Steel body, round watch face rather than rectangular, wireless charging dock, ambient display is a nice option for an always-on watch face

Design rather bland, poor leather strap, average battery life, heart rate sensor inconsistent, sensor "black bar" disrupts round watch face, Android Wear voice controls won't suit all

The Motorola Moto 360 arrives at an unusual time for Android Wear. Announced at the outset, but slower in coming to market than its peers, it's facing second-generation devices like the LG G Watch R that may very well eclipse it.

Moto 360 hands-on: The big round smartwatch - Pocket-lint

 

Announced at Google I/O in June, the Moto 360 has taken a long-ish time to make it to UK shores but the wait is almost over. Costing £199 and avialable

Moto 360 smartwatch review

 

The wearables market is kicking off, and the most popular form factor, by far is the smartwatch. With new submissions from Sony, Samsung and even ASUS, Motorola has stepped up and unleashed the Moto 360 smartwatch. The Moto 360's UK onsale date is Sept...

Design ; Alerts ; Media controls

Confusing UI ; Old chipset

We were surprised how useful the Moto 360 was in everyday use, and we didn’t encounter any of the battery issues that others have reported, getting a full 7am till 11pm day with charge to spare. Wrist alerts are weirdly compelling, as is the fitness...

Moto 360 review: this Android Wear watch is loveable but still flawed

 

Much more refined, but there's still room for improvement

Best design ; Great specs ; Customisation options

Black bar is back ; Screen is worse than rivals ; Battery life so-so

Motorola Moto 360 review - end of the road for the first round Android watch

 

Still our favourite Android Wear device, but the Moto 360 isn't the perfect smartwatch

At £200, the Moto 360 is also the most expensive Android Wear smartwatch currently available. It's the best of the bunch, so if you're determined to buy a wearable this is absolutely the one to go for. You'll need to wait until early October to get...

Moto 360

 

Motorola's round smartwatch is another Android Wear disappointment

Light, comfortable design ; Wireless charging support ; Solid, robust build quality

Poor battery life ; Ugly black bar at bottom of screen ; Inconsistent heart-rate monitor

connected to the Polar H7 heart-rate monitor chest strap and the Epson Pulsense tracker with its dedicated heart-rate sensor, measurements were accurate at times but mostly generated readings that were either slightly above or below the more accurate...

The Moto 360 is a fantastic smartwatch with excellent build quality, luxurious design and an affordable price tag. However, it's not flawless with one day battery life, a lower resolution screen which is tainted by the black section at the bottom. It...

Motorola Moto 360 review

 

Everyone's trying to create magic on your wrist. To date, few have succeeded.

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.
