Specs/Size/Design

The Moto 360 is popular for their incredibly traditional, sophisticated, and beautiful face designs that belay the fact that it is also a smart watch. Available in a size perfect for men and women (42mm), there is an additional option for an oversized round clock face at 46mm. Not many smart watches offer this customization option. You can chose from three band sizes, including 16mm, 20mm, and 22mm, depending on your selection of a men’s band, women’s band, or oversize 46mm case, which requires a 22mm band.

The bezel options come in a variety of tones using Chamfer or Micro Knurl, and the case can be purchased in black, silver, and gold. Leather band options include Cognac leather, Black leather, and metal link bands include silver, gold, and black. These color tones make any and all customization and personalization options exceptional for a traditional and business look.

The Good

The Moto 360 features 14 different, pre-installed dial faces to choose from to freshen up your look and style according to your needs in seconds. They include the following faces: minimalism, artistic, digital, refined, classic, rotation style, world clock, Roman numeral, dials, pascal, and retrograde designs.

This smart watch has a processor, graphics, and connectivity that almost no other smart watch in the world has.

The Moto 360 has a processor typically seen in smartphones—the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 with 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU, Adreno 305 with 450 MHz GPU. This is an incredible processor with razor-sharp speed.

The on-board memory includes 4 GB of internal storage and 512 MB of RAM. This makes importing contacts, applications, information, etc…easier than ever.

The connectivity uses WiFi 802.11 b/g, typically found in laptops and smartphones. In addition, this watch contains dual digital mikes for music streaming, voice activated commands, notification sounds, and more.

The Bad

This highly customizable and high tech smart watch does not have any negative aspects to it. This smart watch is one of the best created.

However, depending on if you purchase the 42mm or the 46mm, the battery lasts anywhere from 1.5 to 2 days of mixed use with Ambient off. If you use Ambient (which uses a sensor to adjust the screen brightness for outdoor/indoor use), that can cut this time in half.

While not the best battery life, it is certainly not the worst and is equal to or better than mainstream smart watches. This is even truer if you consider that this watch is powering a Snapdragon processor and quad-core CPU as well as graphics, sensors, and an impressive on-board memory storage and RAM.
