If you’re a fan of Android Wear, this is probably the best option out there — but it comes at a higher cost than last year. So that’s a lot of customization. The Gmail app supports rich notifications, which means you can archive or reply to emails right from your watch, but that’s it. Similar to the Apple Watch, the Moto Body app wants you to meet all three of those goals each day — but there’s no way to actually track activity specifically for when you’re doing more intense workouts. The women’s case has the same choices albeit with a different “micro cut” textured pattern option for the bezel , but Motorola swapped out the black color option for rose gold.

Post a quick review now to join the conversation! Since it’s running Android Wear, using the Moto is like using any other Android-based watch.

I still charged the Moto nightly, but the good news is that I basically never had to worry about the battery running low, which is the best you motorla expect from a smartwatch. But one of the motoroola things about the Apple Watch is how it combines formal workouts with day-to-day activity to help you always keep an eye on your fitness levels; in my opinion, it’s the most compelling feature of the device.
Fortunately, Motorola improved what it could throughout the year: Thanks to the changes Motorola has made to the Motoas well as the enhancements that have come to the Android Wear platform as a whole, the new is easier to recommend than its predecessor. With the brown, silver and gold not to mention the black screenthere were just a few too many clashing colors for my tastes. I think I would have preferred an all-silver body as motorloa as the 42mm motoroal, though these options would have been readily available if I had the opportunity to customize my own the way regular shoppers will.
As always, what you get out of Android Wear will depend on how much data you put into Google. A year ago, that would have sounded pretty appealing, but at this point there’s basically no reason for an iPhone user to seriously consider the Motoparticularly when an Apple Watch isn’t much more expensive.

Plenty of new and useful features have come to the platform since its debut, but its core purpose is still showing you smartphone notifications and Google Now suggestions, as well as carrying out voice searches and commands. Even if you don’t want to find a third-party band, there are plenty of ways to customize the Moto although not as many as the Apple Watch.

Unfortunately, the promise of the device didn’t quite live up to the realityat least at launch. This is also a major functional improvement, as it’s now quite easy to change the watch strap yourself. Unfortunately, I’ve started to personally feel like the reality of Google Now doesn’t quite match its original ambitions, something that hampers the 30v of Android Wear.

Perhaps the smartest design change Motorola made was to offer the new Moto in two different sizes: Fortunately, you can swipe a few screens over to get a full list of voice commands and just tap the one you want to make your watch listen to your request.
Considering where my finger naturally rests when Motoroal touch the side of the watch, this feels like a smart change. It definitely absorbs sweat rather than repelling it, and it’s also far less comfortable than a more sport-appropriate band would be.
You can’t reply to Hangouts or texts or initiate any conversations with your voice. In addition to those two variants, there’s also a second 42mm option, built specifically with women in mind. Setup is simple and essentially identical to the process motorooa an Android phone — you download the iOS Android Wear app to your iPhone, pair over Bluetooth and then you’re off and running.
Smart displays came into their own in Despite that, I still wouldn’t rate the display as anything particularly special — it’s a bit easier to read outdoors, and the higher resolution is certainly appreciated, but colors aren’t terribly vibrant. If you use the company’s services religiously, you’ll get more useful info out of Google Now pushed to your watch.
