Moto 360 from Google Store - Now £99.99

Reduced again. At under £100, this seems like a good deal.

I believe that people are now getting over a day of battery life with recent updates.

To clarify, this is not the new Moto360 2. It is the original from last year.

Great price. Hot.
Amazon.fr had a lightening deal for the black metal strap version for £110 delivered.Its now expired but if you prefer the metal strap keep an eye out as they often repeat deals.
This has to go scorching hot. The 360 is great. Classy minimalist styling, you can obviously change the face whenever you like and strap to metal/leather/rubber. Having been using one now for several months I can assure you they aren't a gimmick, and at £100 its a very nice watch by itself. Honestly would wholeheartedly recommend the Moto 360
but has that horrid 'flat tyre' screen :(.
always on screen?
Can imagine it's one of those things you get used to after time.
Does the screen come on when you bring your wrist up to view the watch?

Limited by battery life and by being first generation.
Hot hot hot. I've had mine for 6 months or so and really like it. Yes the screen does turn on when you bring your wrist up to look at it.

Yes, and it can do wrist gestures, like shake your wrist a certain way and it will scroll down through messages for example

No, it will fade to dark when it assumes you aren't looking at it.
Great Price, great watch. Had mine for a few months now, love the wireless charging base it comes with. Makes it into a cheeky bedside table clock.

I get 1.5 days before it needs a charge.

Edit - My only slight gripe is the strap it came with has already worn at the buckle, but the straps are replaceable I believe.

Ideal for sexting then.
Bought mine about a year a go and still wear it daily. Easily get a day's worth of battery life even now. Great price.
Had an LG Urbane for a couple of weeks but took it back. Loved the always on display but couldn't get on with the large case, small screen design. Have been tempted by the John Lewis offer of the black 360 with black metal strap.

I'll never get over the fact this provides only a day of battery life

I've had mine for over a year and I don't even notice it. If it was such a bad thing they would have changed it in the 2nd gen.

As for battery, I'm a average to high user and get a day with a good 20% to spare. Only time I struggle is if I do a 10k run using it fully on displaying my pace, that kills it by about 6pm, but pop in on the charger for 10-15 mins and it's got more than enough to go well into the wee hours.

Highly recommend it.
Which is more popular colour?
Free delivery?
Has anyone used this on iOS ?
How good are Google at honoring warranties? I'm waiting for the John Lewis one to come down in price. Electrical gadgets really do need good warranties and I'm not sure how Google would do on that department.
The Flat Tire is a NON ISSUE. After a week you simply don't notice it. You do notice that you can see the watch outside and not be blinded inside though, which is the advantage of the flat tire. Its 100% something I would want on the Moto 360 3 as well. The flat tire is a GOOD THING.

The battery however is barely passable - If you charge in the morning, then go someplace for a night and forget the charger it will die during the night.

I don't use it a lot, today I just used normal notifications and light time checking (i didn't run ANY apps today that i can remember), but I do have tilt to wake, and ambient turned on (you know.. so it acts like a watch), and here's my battery report for today:

Is that the watch with the bit of screen lopped off at the bottom?

I returned a nexus 4 five times.. no problems.
They do like to pre authorise an amount on your card (i.e. you semi-purchase a new device), then cross ship the replacement, which means you get the new before sending back the old.. which is handy, but it does mean a hold on the price on card whilst that happens (though they release it quickly once the old one gets back) - I never had a problem.

I assume that the same for all devices not just google made ones.. but it may not be.

It's not great if I'm honest. I let someone try mine on an iPhone as they were thinking of buying an Android Wear watch, and to put it simply.. a LOT of features dont work, you cant load apps, you cant use the heart rate monitor properly, you cant talk to it, apps that do work on android (like whatsapp notifications), dont on iOS..

Overall.. Its a poor experience. Im amazed anything works and credit to google for getting that working in its iOS app, but without apple allowing access to APIs needed and app hook in's, its not worth it. Not even at this price.

Nope it's the only one with excellent auto brightness. There's a special sensor for it.
Does this work with Map my ride? Cheers
This is a very good price. Just bought an Asus Zenwatch for £150 which I am very happy with (you get at least two days battery life with it if not 3) but this might have turned my head had the deal been about then.

BTW ambient mode *destroys* the battery life, I would suggest turning it off; it's not like you are looking at the watch face 24 hours a day.

Thanks!
Another thing though, I can't find out on Google store the warranties period, is it only one year? It's 2 years at John Lewis.
For OP to say under £100, and the price being £99.99...smells a lot like a sales rep
Tempting me as a Xmas present.. Guessing it'll drop in price before then? What's the moto 2 do that this doesn't? I'd probably have the wireless charger on top which is another £30..

Yes
Good price and nice product until you see the US market gets it at $99.99.... another classic rip off Britain moment
Charging this watch every day !!! PMSL..... Out for a night out and it's dead ! lol

Once this hits £49.99 at Xmas it might be worth a punt

maxmix
bargain. mainly use mine for the changeable faces rather than the smart functions (lg R)
so many awesome faces for free from Face Repo facerepo.com/app/
How LONG does it take to charge from 0 to 100%

I'm In no way affiliated with this. I just remember when this came out that a lot of people said "When it's under £100...".

edit: I don't even own a smartwatch, and I'm not sure I need one. I'll probs put the £100 towards a bendy Neux 6p, but I am very tempted at the sub-£100 mark.
