Motorola’s new smartwatch, the Moto 360, started shipping recently and customers who have been waiting for it for a long time have finally been able to get their hands on it. Some customers are facing an issue which looks an awful lot like image persistence. Basically it messes up the entire display of this smartwatch and can prove to be quite irritating if you’re trying to constantly use the device.

Moto 360 review: Does it live up to the hype?

Image Moto_360_Main_Rotate_Watch_Face_01_TA-630x354.jpg

Google introduced Android Wear back in March with a lot of fanfare all because of a circular watch about the size of an Oreo cookie. Motorola announced the Moto 360 on the very same day telling us that we would have to wait until the summer. The anticipation seemed to grow daily for what seemed to be the sexiest smartwatch ever. We would see a few leaks here and there, but they just left us salivating for more. Then came Google I/O in June when Google officially launched Android wear and a [Read Entire Story]

Moto 360 Smartwatch Review

Fitness trackers, the Pebble, and Samsung’s myriad of Gear-branded smartwatches may have kickstarted the wrist-worn wearables trend, but the true test for this category is just beginning. While Apple recently put the watch world on notice with Apple Watch plans, that device isn’t coming until “early 2015.” Motorola’s own stylish smartwatch, the Moto 360, however, is available today. With a round display, stainless steel casing, leather and stainless steel band [Read Entire Story]

Growing pains? Motorola VP Punit Soni is leaving

You can tell that a company is undergoing a significant transition phase when its top brass start dropping off, which might be the case here for Motorola. The latest exec to leave its ranks is, quite sadly, Punit Soni, Motorola's Vice President for Product Management. Beyond that formal executive title, Punit Soni is more known as the public face of Motorola's software efforts. Originally a Google employee, he was promoted to his current (now former) position in 2012 after search giant acquired [Read Entire Story]

Image iWatch-vs-Moto-360-640x257.png

After a year of silence while all of their competitors have gotten moving on the smart watch arms race, Apple has finally decided to reveal their plans to launch a smart watch. Dubbed the Apple Watch, the device struts its stuff in typical Apple fashion: it aims to be beautiful, and Apple — as usual — feels like they’re the only ones who have done the smart watch “right.” Whether that’s accurate is a different story altogether and certainly remains to be seen.

Bezels – hate them, but can’t do without them. Bezels do serve their purpose, but we want less and less of them and more screen, right? Now, with a nod to the original infographic for phones, this new one shows us which smartwatch gives you more screen usage for your money.

Moto 360 teardown reveals smaller than advertised 300mAh battery, Motorola quickly responds

Image Moto-360-300mAh-battery-iFixit-640x527.jpg

During the hoopla that was this morning’s Apple event, the folks at iFixit published an interesting teardown of the Motorola Moto 360. During the gruesome autopsy, iFixit discovered the Moto 360 may have had a smaller battery than Motorola advertised on the smartwatch’s packaging: a 300mAh battery vs 320mAh as printed on the box. With reports of the Moto 360′s lackluster battery life, this of course caused some alarm with early adopters who’ve already dropped a few bills [Read Entire Story]

Moto 360 square prototype unveiled in lab tour

Image moto-square-200x200.jpg

One of the coolest things about the Moto 360 smartwatch is that it has a round face. Most all of the other devices on the market have square or rectangular designs making the round face of the Moto 360 a selling point. That round face also makes the Moto 360 more like a traditional jewelry watch. However, that round design wasn't the first that Motorola tried for its wearable, it originally built several prototypes that all had a traditional square design. The square prototype of the [Read Entire Story]

The Moto 360 will charge from any Qi wireless charger, but be careful

Image moto-360-demo.png

Recent smart watches have all featured proprietary charging methods. The Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch both feature a special charger you have to put your watch on or in, meaning that if you forget the charger, your watch is useless. Even worse is if the charger breaks, something that isn’t unlikely with complicated chargers. Luckily, the Moto 360 has your back. Instead of featuring a complicated charging method and external pins on the device itself, the Moto 360 simply charges [Read Entire Story]

Motorola Connect snafu installs Moto 360 apps on non-Motorola devices

Motorola is suffering from the sting of embarrassment after an updated version of their Motorola Connect app made it out into the wild with some fairly critical code omitted. The missing code is that related to checking whether a smartwatch being paired to a Motorola smartphone is a Moto 360. Even worse, the app automatically installs apps intended for Moto 360 smartwatches on those non-Moto 360 devices. Motorola’s Motorola Connect app is supposed to be the “central hub” for [Read Entire Story]

Moto 360 Battery Life Test: So Far, Not As Bad As You Heard

Image gwganvreoxtz27tlacxg.jpg

Battery life is generally the slowest thing to test on a gadget, and it's almost always the toughest to get right. There's just no way to rush it, and there are just so many variables regarding how people use a particular gadget that it's always one of those "your mileage may vary" type of situations. Last week, some very early reviews of the Moto 360 smartwatch lambasted its weak battery performance. It's possible they may have jumped the gun. Read more...

Early Moto 360 prototypes look uglier than expected

Early tests may prove the Moto 360 certainly has its defects, but no device has yet to beat its good looks (at least that’s what most techies believe). The Moto 360 wasn’t always meant to be the gorgeous, circular smartwatch made with premium materials. It turns out early prototypes were quite ugly! New images show the Moto 360 early designs included square screens with rounded edges, sporting straps that were less than attractive. These were mostly made of plastic and what looks [Read Entire Story]
