Much of your mileage will depend on how invested you are in Google services, but if you have your heart set on an Android Wear device, the Moto is one of the better options out there. I sweated all over the ‘s nice leather strap while working out, which is kind of a shame. The last hardware change here is by far the most important: There’s a smaller 42mm option as well as the same 46mm case that last year’s model was based on. 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. As such, it’s worth noting what the Moto can and cannot do when paired with an iPhone.

Beyond these features, Android Wear now supports full applications; you can access your app list motoroal holding down on the Moto ‘s side button. It’s probably fair to say it’s up against the entire Android Wear field, which is a lot more competitive now than it was a year ago.
Since it’s running Android Wear, using the Moto is like using any other Android-based watch. We want to hear what you think. 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.
Unfortunately, based on my testing, the lags far behind the Apple Watch for tracking your fitness. The strap itself was comfortable and handsome to look at, but it didn’t mottorola well with the rest of the watch. Lastly, the is still rather thick, although its light weight makes wearing it easy enough.

The display has also been refreshed: That’s not a complete deal breaker, as there are plenty of third-party options like Runkeeper for tracking your 360vv vigorous physical activity. From around the web. The will work fine as a basic activity tracker, but if you want a bit more detail about your workouts, you’ll need to look elsewhere.
Performance is generally snappy, although dismissing notification cards sometimes took a surprisingly long time, and I noticed occasional motoola when tapping certain user interface elements motoroal swiping away notifications.
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. Thanks to the changes Motorpla 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. Fortunately, Motorola improved what it could throughout the year: Providing a band to make that feasible is a omtorola.
Talking to your phones and watches has come a long way in the last few years, but it’s hardly bulletproof at this point — not a knock against Motorola, exactly, but Android Wear is so reliant on your voice that the whole platform feels a bit less useful when the device doesn’t hear me shouting “OK Google” at it.

From there, you’ll still get the notifications from your phone mirrored on your Motoand you’ll also receive Google Now info, provided you log in with your Google account. The leather straps come in more traditionally 3660v colors, and there’s also a double-wrap leather band that calls to mind the Apple Watch Hermes “double tour” band.
So that’s a lot of customization. Motorola’s approach is simple but not nearly as comprehensive: As far as I can tell, no other notifications are actionable; tapping on a Google Now alert about my commute home showed me the route I should take, but I can’t start any navigation or really do anything with that info. The Moto is also notable for being one of the first Android Wear watches to go on sale that works with iOSa feature announced back in August.
The base price of the Moto actually saw a significant increase: Wrap-up 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. If you use the company’s services religiously, you’ll get more useful info out of Google Now pushed to your watch.

Moto review (): More than just good looks this time around
There’s a smaller 42mm option as well as the motlrola 46mm case that last year’s model was based on. Google adds challenges to Fit just in time for New Year’s resolutions. The 46mm Moto now features a mAh battery, up from the mAh on the last model.
As I’ve noted multiple times before, though, a watch’s style is so important and so subjective that it’s hard to identify exactly which devices the Moto is competing against. It’s part of a recent update to Android Wear that supports interactive watch faces, and it definitely adds to the experience — being able to glance at my wrist and see the temperature, date and how many steps Motorol taken is pretty great.
In addition to those two variants, there’s also a second 42mm option, built specifically with women in mind.
