Moto 360 Review

Moto 360

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-moment product. Clearly designed with purpose, it's not just a display on your wrist. This was the Android Wear smartwatch we wanted to wear. Round. Black. Big, but sleek. (And not quite as big as you think.)

It's a smartwatch that looks like a watch. Not just a gadget.

A good bit of that will be in the eye (and on the wrist) of the beholder. The practical matters of Android Wear in the round form factor are more easily discussed here, and in the case of the Moto 360 aren't all that different from what we've experienced on other Android Wear devices.

This, then, is our review of the Moto 360.

The Moto 360 with the Pebble Steel bracelet

Moto 360 with 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 just be too thick to fit in the curved plastic casing.

Meanwhile, a good many of us are waiting for the official steel bracelets to be made available (at a hefty a la carte price of $79.99). But it turns out that you might already have an alternative on hand, or can get one for a mere $20.

For that, we turn to Pebble Steel.

How to manage your saved passwords in Chrome

9

Chrome can keep track of your passwords so you don't have to

One of the many things Chrome can keep and sync between devices for you are passwords. And while for lesser things this can be a great help, it is also something that you may not want to use for say your bank, or shopping site like Amazon.

But if you accidentally hit save that one time, or that you got a new account somewhere but the old one keeps popping up, you'll need to adjust things.

So this, here, is how you manage your passwords in the Chrome browser on Android.
