Moto 360 Experience

IMG_0779 Thanks to internship/work/Verizon, I was able to get a Moto 360 on my wrist for about a week. Now I’m finally ready to share my thoughts about it.

Moto 360 is a smart watch, Android operated, and probably the cheapest one on the market, starting at $250. It’s incredibly stylish, useful and perfect for people who are always on the go.

Moto 360 can only be paired up with an Android operated phone, so I got a second phone to carry around with me, and if you remember from a couple years ago when I had the Nokia Lumia in addition to my iPhone, I didn’t really like it that much. But this time I got a Moto X in wood, and it was actually a great phone to have. I didn’t feel like I needed a case for it, and I could just plug my AUX cable in the car and listen to my favorite stations on Pandora. I have a charging case on my iPhone, kind of a Mophie knock-off, which is too thick and I have to take it off in order to plug it back in.

Back to the Moto 360 though! It let me read my emails, if I had my contacts on the Moto X phone, it would let me read those too. It showed me traffic on the way home. It counted my steps, tracked my activity, and motivated me to actually walk more! It responded to my voice! There really was no reason for me not to like it. Not to mention my husband’s and friends’ reaction when they saw it.

Of course there were a few things that bothered me. The battery barely lasted me all day, I would often come home with less than 10% battery left. The watch itself was too big, and if I positioned my wrist in a certain way, it would push the side button showing me all screen background options possible. The new upgrade that I installed last week made the watch way more user friendly, than before. And finally the wide variety of apps available can be overwhelming

To be 100% honest though, I don’t think I will be getting the watch and switching to android any time soon. I know it may be narrow minded of me, but I love my Apple products, so I am going to stick to what I know, and get the next best thing when September comes around.
