Moto 360 review: It's the best Android Wear watch, but that isn't saying much

Summary

The Moto 360 is the most attractive Android Wear device you can buy right now, with a design that's more reminiscent of a regular watch. Even so, it suffers from poor battery life, just like other early smartwatches, and it has a higher price, too.

Pros
  • Beautiful design
  • Comfortable and lightweight
  • Leather and metal straps
  • Ambient light sensor
  • Wireless charging
Cons
  • Terrible battery life

  • Charging cradle doesn't come with a USB cable
Moto 360 review: It's the best Android Wear watch, but that isn't saying much

When it comes to wearables, fashion trumps function. That's the mantra Motorola went by when it designed and developed the Moto 360, and judging by the enthusiastic response the watch received when it was unveiled earlier this year, plenty of people agree. The Moto 360 is undoubtedly the best-looking of the three inaugural Android Wear watches (the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live are the other two), with its premium leather strap, chamfered glass and circular design. As Motorola designer Jim Wicks said in an interview, "We wanted to hit that 'Whoa!' mark." And so it did. But is that enough? In the past few days, I struggled to like this watch, even though it's the best Android Wear device available today. Allow me to tell you why.
