That's the 6 million dollar question mate

because you can't have the Moto 360 yet (even though we're all waiting for it)

But I want it now (stamps feet)

Good luck with getting your refund from these rascals when they want you to choose something else after taking your money and not offering refund.

There are a large number of "smartwatches" on the market at the moment with the same functionality & they can be picked up from UK Ebay sellers for around £35

Don't see the point myself as my wrist is generally further away from my ear than my phone

Good price.

Personally though I'm more than happyto stick with my pebble steel if only for battery life and the screen always being on.

Once an app like music boss comes to Android Wear though then I may reconsider.

The screen is always on here too Although the battery life is like 2 days instead of 7, but I guess that's a necessary drawback to having an LCD display. What does the Music Boss app do?

for your phone to be near your ear, so does your wrist...
Also, the watches aren't for talking into like a hands free kit.

Oh is it? I thought it was more like the Galaxy Gear ones. I suppose the backlight will have to turn off though which is probably why it is more or less unusable in the sun.

The music boss app allows you to control any media player via the phone. But you can switch between them via the watch app and also launch each one via the watch app. I use it all the time so hopefully something similar or better comes to Android Wear rather than just a standard remote allowing you to control one player at a time.

I've been using a Galaxy Gear for the last few weeks. Pairs to my Moto G with no hassle - other than installing the Gear Manager app on the phone. offers voice calling as well as notifications and the battery is lasting me 3-5 days on Tizen. Don't see what the Android Wear watches add right now for me. In fact if anything they have less functionality and worse battry than my Gear, which I picked up for less than ninety quid.

Like you, I have been using a Samsung Galaxy Gear (first running Android, later upgraded to Tizen) for the past few weeks. I like it a lot, but it has a few problems that are making me consider getting an Android Wear device.

For example, try using S-Voice to ask your watch "who is the president of Ukraine". It will say "Oleksandr Turchynov"; this answer is wrong because this man used to be the acting president, but on 7 June 2014, Petro Poroshenko became the new president of Ukraine. In other words, the answer Samsung is giving you is based on a knowledge base that is, at least in this case, more than a month old. Now, try asking Google this question; Google, whichever platform (including Android Wear) you use to ask it this question, will give you the correct answer.

Another problem with the original Galaxy Gear is that if you use pick up your Android phone and ask Google Now to remind you of something, both your phone and the Gear will notify when the right time comes, but if you use S-Voice to request a reminder, you will not get a notification when the time set for the reminder is reached.

I don't use S Voice at all as it doesn't show up as an option when you pair to a non-Samsung device. I use my Gear just for notifications, answering and making calls and very occasionally for snapping something spontaneous on the built-in camera. The way I see it, Android Wear devices currently offer better voice support than the Gear; however the Gear offers much easier, granular tweaking of which apps notify you. I don't use voice actions very often - my Gear is chiefly used like a Pebble, for being notified of messages etc when the phone is in my pocket. I'd use an Android Wear device the same, so with worse battery life I don't see the advantage yet. For me Android Wear is something I will think about once the platform has matured. If I sold my Gear to buy this I'd probably end up having to contribute an extra £90. I just don't think it's worth it.

I am impressed that you got it working with the Moto G (I knew some people had managed to get the Gear Manager app running on a Nexus 5). Anyway, I understand what you mean. In my case, I don't really make/answer too many calls with my Galaxy Gear and I love voice-based search and that is why I am thinking about selling my Gear and getting a G Watch.

Like an elephants foreskin they have some significant drawbacks

Got one of these from Three for £30 last week. Not sure its worth £170 (the price they have it for), but for the price I paid I am very happy indeed.

Plus delivery, so this is cold as could be bought with PandP cheaper elsewhere
