Motorola Moto 360 - Video Review

Motorola Moto 360

Meet the , a beautifully crafted smartwatch which runs Google's Android Wear platform. Its unique round design along with its exclusive fitness features and its decent price tag may give it an edge above some of its Android Wear competitors.

Besides its beautiful industrial design, the Moto 360 is packed with a heart rate sensor, wireless charging, ambient light sensor and dual microphones. While Google’s new Android Wear is still in its infancy, it’s slowly seeing more support from third-party apps. The core experience of the Moto 360 is nearly identical to other Android Wear smartwatches, but the presentation does differ because of its round display. Just like other Android Wear watches, the Moto 360 utilizes various finger gestures and taps to operate around the UI. Swiping up/down/left/right on the display allows us to move around through various cards, while long-pressing on the watch face gives us additional ones to choose from. In addition, we can cover the display with our palm to instantly turn off the display – putting it back to its standby mode.

Other than the standard Android Wear features, Motorola has added some of their own enhancements, like the Heart Rate app, which measures your pulse and the 'heart Activity' app which checks your heart rate every 30 minutes. Other than that, the Android Wear experience here is identical to every other smartwatch running the platform.

Priced at $249.99 for the base model, which comes with a leather band, it’s more expensive than the $200 Samsung Gear Live and $230 LG G Watch. Considering that the three share the same core experience, the deciding factor here is the Moto 360’s design.
