I personally do not see any point in smart watches, but this is by far the best looking one to-date and does not look like a piece of geek's wear. Heat added.

Ordered with Staff Discount it's £128!

heat from me

This is the price now as they are expecting the new version to be released the end of may i believe.
still a great deal though

Amazing deal, I paid £140 but had to get it from Germany.

Awesome price! I'm still hanging on before I make the plunge... Just want to see the version 2... If the new version is a lot more expensive and doesn't have anything significantly different... I'll be getting this

Announcement is due end of May, release date is anyone's guess.

As for the normal price, it seems to be £159.99 with codes from Motorola. The US has just dropped it from $199 to $165.

Best buy is offering it for $80 with any android phone.

Instore only and by the terms it seems you need a two year phone plan too.

The battery is crap on these smartwatch things, personally I'd go with a pebble at least that runs for a week without worrying about forgetting to charge it

This is a total non-issue. As with most watches (not just smart watches) you aren't going to wear it to bed, so you take it off. You drop it into the cradle which contactlessly charges it and turns it into a nice bedside clock.

Not quite. My Fitbit stays on overnight as it measures sleep, and it improves the resting heart rate measurement. A watch that needs overnight charging can't do that.

Smart watches don't make sense to me personally but a pack of sensors on the wrist that links to a smartphone does make sense. Each to their own of course

This 360 is a really nice looking watch though.

They are more useful than you may think, certainly my Moto 360 surprised me and integrated into my gadget ecosystem very nicely.

That said, the bespoke charger that I had to keep with me if I travelled anywhere overnight (which I used to do quite frequently) was yet another item to remember to keep with me which was a pain. That bored me so fairly rapidly I stopped using it. Very smart though and excellent value at this price, if it is what you want.

You should get something like this, it has a battery so it can emergency charge your phone, or wireless charge your watch. I bring it with me when I go away.

It charges on a standard Qi wireless charger. You can get fairly small puck shaped Qi chargers for a few quid, use one of those as your travel/backup kit?

Guys, hold on for a little longer. With the imminent release of the next generation of this smart watch, this version will become much cheaper. It's going to struggle to hold its value as it's a first generation watch.

Would expect the price to drop to around sub £120 following the release of the new generation.

great price but for a techy I'm waiting for ver 2

But then I'll want the new one, not this, but you'll say wait for the price drop when the 3rd is announced and so on.

As with all technology, hang on long enough and it becomes bargain bin territory.

Only reason I'm saying wait a bit is because the new launch is imminent. And for those that only want this version (because of the price), then waiting a few weeks could save you some bucks.

Just my opinion.

I've had mine since November and have accidentally knocked it a few times. Not a single scratch in the black, still looks as good as when I bought it

At the moment yes it does require an android device. There are rumours of this changing soon though. i am in the same boat, I cant stand the look of the Apple Watch and would much prefer an android wear device.

Thanks, I must admit that I haven't looked into QI chargers for ages, last I saw they were £30+ but I'll bet they've come right down now since. The watch sat on my kitchen table for three months before I sold it (for not much less than this price!) last week and over that time I hadn't noticed any loss during my daily routines so clearly didn't need it. You are right though, that would have solved a major pain point for me.

But the pebble time looks a bit like this:

Haha, yes it does a bit, though the resolution isn't quite as good as that! I'm grttingvthe Pebble Time Steel, which looks quite a bit better. I currently have the original Pebble Steel and it's amazing how much better it is that other smartwatches I've tried in pure practical terms - its essentially a calendar, reminder, notifier for me, so won't sacrifice 4 or 5 days of charging just for a round clock face.

I can't believe how the pebble time has got so much backing. Its so ugly and its bezel has bezel.

agree on the big bezel, I personally don't like the pebble time at all, the even the time steel, which I'm getting, has a big bezel. I suppose you need to consider what you want it for - if it's for showing off and that's it, get one of these - your less informed mates in the pub won't know your battery will barely last until last orders even if you only put it on that morning, and your more drunk friends won't notice that it's not actually a round screen, it has a cut off at the bottom for the driver. If you're just ultra practical and stingy, get the first pebble (not steel). If you want a beautiful watch, don't get a bloody smartwatch, the limitations of battery capacity mean it's simply not possible yet without massive compromise. if you're a mug, get an Apple Watch. I'm somewhere in between - a bit of a show off, a bit of a geek, a bit practical, and a bit of a mug - hence, Pebble Time Steel.

This is tempting, I had a pre order in for pebble time at the $159 cost but recently canceled as there being shipped from china so will be taxed in the regions of £30. So at that price makes it way too expensive for a watch that don't even have a heart rate monitor wireless charging.

I would go for this but again need to see ver 2 before.

It's a shame this doesn't work with an iPhone, id much rather have this beauty over paying £500 for the Apple smart watch, maybe when the watch can teleport you it might be worth 10k, till then, i think id rather buy a new phone, you know, the things that do everything that the smart watch does a million times better and cost less.

I have a Moto 360 and its been off charge since 5:30 this morning and has 53% battery left. I think a lot of people still refer to the horrific battery it had prior to the update that nearly doubled it. I'm a heavy user and easily get a full day's use out of it and simply put it on charge with my phone each night (full day being from 5:30 till around 11pm).

As for the "flat tyre" screen it seems to split oppinion, i really dont mind it but some people hate it. heres an image of it with the watchface i use (not my pic): i.imgur.com/cGx…jpg

But the main reason I stopped using my pebble for this is its integration with Google Now. In addition to normal notifications the watch gives me really important information that google now picks up and displays on my watch when i might need it. I travel quite a bit so when im checking into a premier inn ill get my booking ref displayed, and i also get flight departure times and gate information when im in an airport. Things like that make android wear more useful than most other watches.

So...what do these actually do? I've been tempted to buy one, but £150 just seems so steep.

Heat for the price. Personally I have a Pebble which I got from Black Friday sales and it has been very useful. I was initially sold on the good battery life when compared to Android Wear devices and it definitely delivers on that front. Checking for notifications and changing music from your wrist is very useful.
