Not even 24 hours of having the watch it already died out on me. First the battery life on it is horrible and then it just stopped turning on. Do not recommend this watch at all.

Good Smartwatch with Limitations

This is a very nice looking watch. It does everything all the other do for a lot less. However, it has some noticeable limitation. The main one is the battery. This is not an all day watch. I would only trust it to last 8-12 hours of regular use. Also, there is a lot lag when it first loads up and when starting apps. Patience is a necessity. It is a beautiful watch. Get the app Realwear. It does a very nice 3D watch face. A great bonus is the 4GB of storage. I like to load it up with music then go for a walk or bike ride while leaving the phone at home.

A fine timepiece - with extra goodies!

First things first. You have to accept a smart watch for what it is - an accessory to your phone. It is not a primary computing device. This won't replace your phone, tablet, or computer. What these do is help keep your phone in your pocket, give you quick information at a glance, and act as a fitness tracker while you're at it. So is it still worth buying a 1st generation device like this? Absolutely - unless you have an unlimited budget. The build quality on the watch itself is fantastic. A very solid metal circle with thick, bevel-cut glass on the front, and an optical heart rate sensor on the back. The leather band is really nice, my only quibble with it is the first loop you tuck the band through after fastening it is set too close. You REALLY have to bend the end of the band to insert it. It gets better as the leather loosens up with wear, but it would be nice if it was just a bit further up. The watch bands are replaceable, with several aftermarket options available. (Pebble Steel bands fit this model.) Internally, yes, the processor IS old, and slower than the current generation, and most of its competitors. You WILL get lag and stuttering when loading apps, or switching views. But it's not so bad as to be problematic. I guess that falls on your personal tolerance levels, and the Moto 360 here falls well within mine. Software-wise, there were several Android Wear updates for this watch right out of the gate. Once those were complete, it was running the latest version of Android Wear, 1.4.xxxx - which is Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow). So, even as an older device, Motorola is still supporting it with the latest software. A big plus - because the newer versions have brought many feature and battery life improvements. The battery life the first couple of days was pretty bad. Day one I think I charged it at least 3 times. But that included several operating system updates, as well as configuration and installing Wear apps. Now that I've settled into a usage pattern, I'm finding that I go from 7am to midnight with an average of 20-30% battery left. That's with ambient mode off. The more time you spend with the screen on, tapping and swiping away, the shorter that time will be. The wireless charger that is included is fantastic. The watch sits in it very nicely, and it's great on your nightstand. The LED on the charger itself is very dim, and doesn't light up your bedroom at night like some LEDs can, and the night stand mode of the Moto 360 while charging is just bright enough to be seen in the dark, without lighting up the room. Another bonus - if you already have Qi wireless charge pads for your phones/tablets, they will also charge your watch! I have a couple around the house already, and have tested it myself. One thing that's great about Android Wear is the ability to customize the watch face. There are several great apps out there that allow you to download faces others have made, or make your own from scratch. You can truly make it your own. If you're looking to get your feet wet in the wearables market - or even if you're looking at fitness trackers, of which there are many in this price range - and you're being budget conscious, the 1st gen Moto 360 is STILL a great buy. Oh, and I've read lots of reviews about the heart rate monitor being questionable. I have to disagree. While I have had a few failed reads, I also had the opportunity to test the sensor alongside the heart rate registered on a blood pressure machine at the doctor's office. On 6 separate readings, this was within 2 beats per minute of the fancy medical equipment. I'm calling it accurate! Pros: - Looks GREAT (and like a regular watch) - Solid construction - Android Wear's customization and app selection - battery life (at least under my normal usage) - charges with ANY Qi-compatible wireless charging pad - 'night stand' mode while charging is very nice, and not bright in a dark room - price

Very happy

I have been looking at smart watch for some time and finally decided to purchase this watch as it was on sale and it seem like a at deal. It has been a week and I am extremely happy with my purchase. Watch is very comfortable and the apps are awesome. Battery is great and it may take a a day or two of use /charge before it builds up its capacity. Note that some of the watch faces from app store will use battery more than std ones. Had to re sync my apps before I could get the maps app working.

Moto 360 1st gen.

I got this watch a couple of months ago. I love it! It does everything it's supposed to do, is rugged, beautiful, and has many many interchangeable watch faces. Battery usually lasts me a full day, but if it's used a lot, then battery life diminishes, and occasionally needs recharging by like 9 p.m. Or so. Accurate watch, good step counter, accurate heart monitor. All for less than half price of Fitbit, and this one looks way more cool!

Great device, poor battery

I like the functionality of this device and it's pretty advanced but because of all the apps and notification, the battery only lasts me about 12 hours with very light usage. It's a big improvement from my Fitbit but I feel that the accuracy of the pedometer and heart rate monitor is not all that great. Overall I'm pleased with this purchase but I would suggest that you wait for the sale to make it truly worth it.

Moto Happy

Have eyeing smart watches for a while and feel lucky to have score this watch at an awesome price. It has changed everything in terms of how I receive notifications and calls. Works great with a bluetooth headset! Best part is that my phone is silent and safe in my pocket.

Poor Waranty Service

Screen had large blotches/discolouration after less than a year. Since it was a gift Motorola told me I was out of warranty and would have to pay for repair even though the product is less than a year old. Product should have lasted longer than a year and they should have honoured their warranty. Disappointed in Motorola and won't buy from them again.

  • From Vancouver, BC

All in all, a decent first smartwatch.

I was hesitant to buy a newer, more expensive model so I opted for the cheaper option. So far, after 2 weeks of use, I find the notifications convenient, the fitness tracking is on par with other fitness bands/watches, and the battery easily lasts a day for me (however, the battery can easily be scooped up by half a day of heavy use so you need to be careful). Build quality is nice and the charging dock is great. For a first time smartwatch buyer who wants a lower price point to get in and check things out this is a pretty good place to start.

  • From Dollard des Ormeaux,

Fun and great

Just got this two days ago. Simple setup, good looking and so many watch faces! It lets me answer texts and calls while I drive. Battery good for full day. I love my toys, and this is a great one! Also, accurate timepiece, wifi, Bluetooth , what more can you ask for? Leather strap, not little flimsy rubber like many others at double the price.
