Motorola’s first wearable tech, Moto 360, is here. It is a little bit expensive, $250, but c’mon the device is beautiful and really captivating and worth every cent. Moto 360 is just not a show off fancy device, it really has some good incentives to buy the device.

  • What people will most like about Moto 360 is its metal finish design, which is made up of Stainless Steel and the Gorilla Glass protection for the especially round LCD screen to which I am attracted too, and probably everyone else would also be attracted to.

    Another feature of Moto 360, the belts. The belts are yet just available in black-leather and grey-leather. No other features in belt are available at this point, which might be annoying for many of the users.

    The battery has been a major setback as according to this blogpost author. According to Ryan, the watch would work at a stretch of 18-20 hours maximum with less than 5% power drainage per hour. As the reasoning given, I would also agree that this watch needs to carry on much more longer than that to beat the competition given by our conventional quartz watches.

    But you see Motorola is clever to compensate some of our anger by giving us a Qi wireless charging which can simply be docked into a convenient desktop charging cradle or used with a number of existing Qi-based charging mats.

    The Apple Watch uses a magnetic MagSafe charger for its wireless charging needs. Compared to pin based charging, wireless charging is much more better way to charge a watch. So, here we presented some of the important things that customers like to see before buying them.
