​not quite. This is the metal band version which was exclusive to a John lewis in the UK. It costs more.
Wait a while and this will bomb in price, the motor 360 2 is on its way
Samsung gear s2 announced today too. should be September release but I'll be hanging on for that. good price for the metal band though
have the clock on my phone to tell me the time
Still annoys me that they put the 'flat tyre' on the bottom
I've sent a request to Johnnie Lewis, they should price match. Was hoping for some O2 priority codes but there's none at t'moment.
I smell gen 2 around the corner

Is that not running Samsungs Tizen?
Oh dear! Less stylish than an early 90s Casio!
G watch r looks so much better!
Plain black leather version available from eglobal @ £109 after using the £6 coupon if anyones interested. Fast delivery + no import charges. The logic behind paying £40+ more for a very ordinary band is interesting!

Go with the LG G Watch R.
Having owned both it's clear the LG has much better battery life even with the screen on all the time at full brightness, still over 24 hours. The Moto lasts just a few hours with the screen on constantly and has a big chunk of screen missing from the bottom.
Even if the Moto was £50 I wouldn't want it. It's near impossible to see the screen outside. Get the G watch R, it's OLED not LCD and better all round, with WiFi being enabled next month so you don't even have to keep your phone near to you all of the time.

And chips/scratches very easily. Begins to look very tatty after a month of use. People are using marker pens to try and cover it up!

Wow, after all the hype they had surrounding the leather used too. A carbon fiber band would go well with the "futuristic" nature of a smartwatch I think.

That chart is wrong - the Moto 360 does have wi-fi (enabled with the latest update).

Its a great device, although I went for the silver one - not least because I was worried about scuffing the black one.

Battery admittedly isn't great, and is probably its biggest downside. - it generally lasts a full day (ie: wake up to sleep) with a reasonable bit left, and with the "ambient on" mode enabled - but note that doesnt mean the screen is on continuously - it still turns off when the watch is at an angle you are unlikely to be watching it from, however that doesn't worry me. In fact its possibly a plus as a privacy bonus, and wakes pretty much instantly when tilted towards you. When its at an angle you might be able to see it (flat or higher) the screen stays on in a low power mode - so you can still see the time at a glance. If you turned ambient "off" (which means the screen stays off until its tilted towards you, and goes off again soon after you've stopped interacting with it) I expect it might someway into day 2 (not all the way though!) But as I charge it every night anyway I've not seen a need to do this. The lack of longevity is countered by the ease of charging - the QI charging stand is a very big plus point for this watch. Drop it onto the stand - it turns into a bedside clock. pick it up in the morning, away you go! No messing with plugs or magnets. The fact that it's QI means any QI wireless charger will work with it too.

The actual functionality is great - love being able to read texts, facebook messenger messages, whatsapp etc on the watch and reply. Google maps is very good too. Wrist flick, to flick between notifications (feature added in last update) works really well too if you don't have your other hand free to swipe the screen!

I paid the full £200 at launch, and don't regret it one bit!

Love mine. Bought black metal band off amazon for under a tenner
People would be better waiting for the 2nd gen 360.
Site is down for me
Moto 360 2 coming in September. I'm waiting for that; if I decide against it, this first gen model is sure to come down in price even further.

I had Moto 360 for 3-4 months and the sold it and got my self SW3 that I have now for ish 3 months. ​Look in this chart and you will see why my current choice from this 1st gen. watches is Sony's SmartWatch 3! It has the biggest battery, best water resistance, GPS, NFC (Can I dream about Android Pay payments?) and I really like it's display tech plus that Micro USB port all though finicky as f**** is useful if you want to charge from a power bank on the go (I still LOVE Moto's stand though).
Well reviewed, thanks for the low down. (thumbs up)

Lots of reviews mention the washed out colours of the SW3 compard to the Moto360. Having owned both, how would you compare the displays?

I own a 360 and disagree with almost everything you say about it. The screen is perfectly legible outside, it lasts all day, the 'flat tyre' is negligible and son forgotten. Plus it will charge on any QI wireless charger, a huge advantage when you travel a lot.

I loved mine... Just wish I hadn't dived into the Med while wearing it...
I have a Samsung Galaxy Gear S. And I have been very impressed. I know it runs Tizen and some people may be put off by that however I have found no downsides. Battery easily lasts 2 full days. However I would of liked if it was possible to wireless charge it. The charger can feel like your going to break the watch when you clip it on. It is not that big on the wrist either as it has a curved display. Runs standalone whats not to love
Thanks op, been waiting for the steel to come down in price!!! just ordered!!! Heat from me!!!

Is it sellotaped to your wrist too for easy viewing?
Bargain. Paid 179 for mine from JL about 4 montha ago. Good gadget. Love using it with Watchmaker app.

what can this acctually do



passes on selected notifications from your phone, vibrates when you're being called and shows you caller ID, allows you to set reminders and alarms by voice alone, navigate, and answer texts without taking phone from your pocket. Plus it has a pulse measuring device so you can use it as a fitness trainer if so inclined. Plus a million other things.

Do you seriously not know what smartwatches do?

Shame you cant have the screen always on at full brightness without killing the battery within 3 hours.
Suggest you buy a G watch R on amazon to test run it for a week before returning it, you'll feel deflated being left with only the moto.

I would say they have a better vision then me then ;D The display is one of the things I really like on SW3 because of its Transflective tech visibility outdoors is amazing and colors look just fine to me.

Or you could walk into the town centre and look at the clock on the town hall ...
