The animation lag we'd experienced since we first got the smartwatch is all but gone. We're still seeing the occasional hiccup, but overall the animations are much improved, a drastic change from the past couple months.
Update: We've also received the Android Wear 4.4W2 update on our LG G Watch R review unit, and the update has eliminated almost all of the lag we were seeing on that device too, while adding a couple of new watch faces.
As a reminder, here's what's new in the 4.4W.2 release for the Moto 360:
- Smart Battery Saving - When your battery hits 15%, your Moto 360 will turn off ambient mode, so you don't have to remember to.
- Timely Time Checks - Moto 360 will synchronize the time with your phone more often to make sure it is up to the minute.
- User Interface Tweaks - We observed with consumers that there are many times where you want to use your Moto 360 as truly a classic watch—a beautiful way to see the time. A new gesture now lets you see the full watch face without permanently dismissing a notification. Just touch the top of a notification and swipe down. You'll see the notification again when you have another high priority notification.
- Mood Lighting - Moto 360 will adjust to the lighting of the room while charging, so that it isn't too bright or too dark.
- Readying the wires for Bluetooth - There are a couple of under-the-hood enhancements that will pave the way for connecting Bluetooth headsets to the watch.
- Bug Squashing - As usual, bugs are squashed to enhance the overall user experience.
