Engadget Review

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.

Product Review
The Verge
Android Wear devices are mostly made to work the same, offering the same kind of notifications and quick interactions no matter which device you use. But the 360's hardware truly sets it apart.

Gizmodo
Again, we weren't allowed to do much exploring (on the non-demo version they wouldn't let us look at the settings, for some reason), but from what we saw we were very impressed.

I feel like many of the wrist wearable devices thus far have had a rather masculine appeal to them, so it was nice to see something that, although black, was stylish enough to pair with a sparkly bracelet. Aesthetics is what will help sell Android Wear devices to the style conscious.

A big, round watch face screen, as opposed to the square type we're normally used to, makes the Moto 360 look like a regular fashion watch from a distance. But, in action, Google Now and other services transform the watch into a variety of at-a-glance uses.

It’s actually incredible to use in real life because it looks almost exactly like the promo shots which feels unreal. The circular design/interface makes it seem like something you might actually want to wear and the bulk isn’t as big as we thought it would be.

The design is excellent, the screen is beautiful and responsive, and the underlying software seems to tie everything together perfectly. As excited as we are for the G watch and Gear Live, the Moto 360 is definitely the wearable to watch out for this year.

What a display that is. Edge-to-edge, bright colors, and great viewing angles, it feels like it's swimming on top of the cover glass, not underneath it.

Mashable
It's fashion that makes the Moto 360 such a sensation. While the Android Wear smartwatches from Samsung and LG are cute gadgets, Motorola's smartwatch is a piece of technology you covet.
Product Review
VentureBeat
The first thing you notice about the 360 is its round shape and spacious display. It’s a fine showcase for Android Wear, so I’m sure Google’s glad Motorola decided to show up at I/O.

If you’re buying a smartwatch today, spend $249 and buy the Moto 360. That’s an easy call. But buy it knowing that this is only the beginning, that looking good is only the first step toward being great.
