Happy With the Purchase of Motorola Moto 360
I received my Motorola Moto 360 2nd Gen four days ago and I’ve been putting it through all the hoops. I was certainly pleased about how easy it was to set up. Mine came charged at about 80%, but I still set it on the charger for setup.
All the apps installed easily and it synced quickly with my phone (all done withing about ten minutes). Here’s what I did to make the setup go so well: While I was waiting for my watch to be delivered, I got online and watched a couple of videos on how to set it up. I downloaded the apps I needed to my phone and so it was all ready to go when the watch arrived. I was also familiar with what to expect and how to use the watch.
I found this watch with lower prices, but since this was sold by Amazon I decided to pay the extra for the peace of mind. That being said, I’m wondering now if I should have explored more options for the watch color, band etc..
The watch band is okay, but just a little tight for my wrist so I’m going to have to order something else, probably black leather.
Bottom line: I can’t figure out why other reviewers had problems with syncing. It went really smooth for me. It hooks right up to my home and work networks, and that is a feature I love. It looks great, I’ve already gotten many complements. It works great and I’d recommend this to any of my friends.
Perfect For This Kinda Techy Older Woman
I did a lot of research before deciding on this watch. I haven’t worn a watch for years and the CNET review said the strap holders angled down to make it look nicer on a woman’s wrist. It does.
I began looking at smart watches as an alternative to some type of medic alert device. Besides the monthly cost of the service with GPS, they depend on a cell phone company that works poorly in my area – very rural town near Death Valley. Being able to use the one dependable cell service here via a smart watch seemed smart.
I’ve had it for a while and, like any new device, the relationship takes time. Setting up and pairing with my Nexus 6p phone was simple, using the Android wear app.
The display, watch faces, ease of use are very good. The app allows for several settings, which I will decide in another few days. One is notifications, and I will probably block Facebook notification, as I am not tied at the hip to social media.
The notifications I enjoy are: texts, phone calls, Google calendar reminders, and email. I can decide if I need to respond now or later.
While driving, OK Google, play Garth Brooks! Of course, using Bluetooth headset paired to the phone.
I just can’t imagine how many uses I will find the longer I use it.
Overall, I’m very happy with the Motorola Moto 360 2nd Generation smart watch! I recommend it to any kinda techy older woman!
The watch arrived a day before expected and well packaged. Opening the box was hard for my older, arthritic fingers, but that is my problem.
This Motorola Moto 360 Product is Fantastic
This product is fantastic. I got it 2 days after I ordered it and it came with 99% battery. When I first opened it, the setup was super easy and user friendly. The only down side was for the first few days the watch would die extremely quickly and would not even get through a half day. The way you have to fix this issue is put it on the charger for over 36 hours straight. after I did that my watch has never gone below 70%.
I highly suggest charging it every night. Some people might be thinking what if I have an iPhone, will it work? The answer is yes. I am running mine on my 3 year old iPhone 5s and it still works great. I can answer calls and reply to emails. The way you reply to emails on the iPhone is you must be using g mail and download the gmail app and change a few settings letting you receive and send email straight from your watch.
If you are worried it will look like a toy, it is quite the opposite. I have been using mine for about a month now and i can’t remember a day when someone has not complimented it. It is extremely comfortable with the leather bands it has. If you are going to work out with it like i do to track many things such as steps and calories burned, i suggest getting a silicon band because the leather band just will not hold up to sweat purely because it is leather and it is supposed to look classy. You can easily purchase a silicon band on amazon for about $15. I would not suggest playing sports with it because the glass may shatter if hit hard enough, but i would not worry about it because I have hit many tables and doorways with it and it still looks brand new like i just got it yesterday. If you are worried about it being to big, don’t. I have small wrists, and it looks perfect on me when I buckle it up tight. if you are still worried it is much better to be able to see the screen clearly with a slightly big watch than to have trouble viewing the screen because it is to small.
Overall I highly suggest anyone who wants a nice watch should pick one up even if you have an iPhone because it looks a lot classier than the apple watch and has a larger screen option for easier viewing of the text.
You Will Love This Watch
Usability: This watch is so versatile. I use it with my iPhone 7 and even though it is running on two different operating systems the apps that I am able to use work seamlessly. I have been wearing it everyday for 2 weeks straight and charge it at night when I get home. I am a teacher so I often use the timer app or the stopwatch.
Look: Many people have complimented me on this watch, asking if it is a smartwatch because it looks so much like a regular watch.
Battery: The battery life is phenomenal. By 6 PM I still have about 50-60% battery life and that is with the ‘always on screen’ running throughout the day
Customization: I absolutely love the ability to change watch faces frequently to match my outfit or mood.
Overall: This watch is great. I looks nice with any outfit and really pulls together a look. It has great capabilities that make the price tag worth it to me. The one con I have is that I wish it was more compatible with iOS but I knew what I was getting when I bought an Android Wear watch.
Just What I Wanted
I’ve had this product for a little while now and I have to say that seeing some of the mixed reviews I was a little scared to buy it. The watch is very sturdy and the band is very good quality. I saw that someone said the battery life isn’t great but what do you expect from a product that is so small? I only have to charge this watch every two days with constant use. I even have watched youtube videos on it! How cool is that?
Anyways, the quality of the screen is wonderful and the watch is very responsive and coincides well with my LG V10 cell phone.
It’s also convenient to just check updates from your watch at a glance without pulling out your phone; which at the office is very useful. If you are looking for wearable technology that has some great use and functionality look no further.
A wonderful product and I will be looking forward to newer generations of this watch.
Its been two days with it and quite frankly the only value I see from it to get notifications and control spotify, in the sun light is difficult to read, couldn’t get to my emails show the contents in text and not only the header and sender of the email (this annoys me way too much), read forums and couldn’t get it working with my Note 5…not a lot of customization or apps like whatsapp to be added (didn’t find out how to install it yet), i like to tweak things and at the moment is not as a straight forward to find out how to do it (only thing easy was to change watch face)
Synced quickly and without a hitch. All apps are really impressive. Battery life is good.
The band should have had another removable link.
