Moto 360 Review

The first of the round Android Wear watches is stylish but imperfect. The Moto 360 has been a long time coming. Never mind the wait between the watch being announced and finally finally getting into folks' hands. From the first time we saw the Moto 360, it was clear this wasn't a spur-of-the-...

The Moto 360 with the Pebble Steel bracelet

Sure, the Horween Leather on the Moto 360 is mighty fine, but watches are all about customization, particularly when it comes to the straps. But because of the size and shape of the Moto 360, we've had to be a little careful of shoving just any old strap in there. A good many have turned out to...

I dream of a $350 Moto 360

Motorola's watch is great, but it could be so much more Motorola's first Android Wear device is great. I mean really, really great. Visually it is by far the most attractive of the smartwatches we have seen so far, including LG's perfect circle G Watch R, in my opinion. I like the screen. I like...

OH THE CARNAGE

Don't try to force a strap that's too thick onto your Moto 360

If you try to force a strap that's too thick onto your Moto 360, you're gonna have a bad time Yikes. What you see up there is my absolute favorite padded ostrich watch strap. It's the right size to fit the Moto 360 (that'd be 22mm, same as the LG G Watch), and I've been thinking of how good it...

You won't be seeing this quite as much as you'd think

Moto responds to iFixit battery size confusion

There's been some hubbub in the past few hours over the Moto 360 not having the size battery it claimed — iFixit's teardown showed 300 mAh versus 320 mAh claimed on the spec sheet. Perhaps not a huge difference, but every little bit of juice counts in a smartwatch, particularly since the 360 has...

LG G Watch R

How much bigger is the LG G Watch R than a regular watch?

Not very. Though that depends which regular watch you're looking at. On the left is what I would consider a large watch – or it sure is compared to others that I own – and on the right of course is the LG G Watch R. The G Watch R is a little bigger and a little thicker, but it's not perhaps...
