Just a fitness and notification watch though?
A whole day is 24hrs ;)
Pebble Time Steel.
That looks really interesting, if only it did a few things that I can with my PTS I'd order one.

Vibration is far too weak missing any notifications. Absolute lint magnet and looks like crap in 5 minutes. Cost me £13 to return to Amazon France. Back to my pebble.
wait but its in french does that mean anything will change to the watch itself like core settings
one of the most LED heart rate monitors is the Mio Alpha.. I have the Alpha 2. Pretty basic features as a sports/activity tracker but the HR monitoring is very accurate. Very occasionally loses accuracy but only if doing something like HIIT training.
Not sure as Lenovo (Moto) have ditched wearables for the foreseeable future! It was a yes, up until last week. Here is the link
yes. I own the normal 360 2nd gen which is pretty much the same as this.
Love my Moto 360 g2. Moto have said wear 2 is coming for it.
Flat tyre, had one, sent it back. Got it to record my running but completely unreliable, often losing part of or whole races. Poor battery life, charges reasonably quickly but do you really want to be charging your watch before every race?
second gen it should get android wear2.0
flat tyre....no thanks
does this have the same awful 'flat tyre' as both the other 360s?
Sticking with my pebble until the fancy ones can go a week without a charge like mine ! Also pebble works with iOS and android which is helpful as I like to switch every year as I find both os's great.
Looks like a nice gadget & if it was in stock ide be tempted..But it's bad enough charging the phone everyday...i'll stick to me solar powered Citizen for now!
I so wanted one of these Moto 360 watches, but couldn't get past the small flat tyre niggle, knew it would bother me ... in the end I got the Huawei W1 on lightning deal £249 at the time (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B017XDOB6U) .. at the time of purchase it didn't support voice calling. About a month after owning it, they updated the software to enable that. Bonus!! :-) For someone who never used to wear watches, to now having the W1, well worth the money, love it! £99 is a bargain for someone wanting a very decent smart watch.
Pebble Time is overall I think. having tried a few different watches I concluded that I don't need interactivity and mainly just wanted to know who was notifying me and what about, without having to get my phone on my pocket. I also use timers and like it to track my steps. For all this the Pebble won out for me, and I even took it on my last holiday to Cornwall without the charger, since with Airplane mode on at night time the battery saw me right through. I liked the 360 as a nerdy toy but in my experience the battery was rubbish, it wasn't very smooth and responsive (because of the archaic TI OMAP CPU I suspect) and about three weeks after I bought it I woke up to find it had a black screen and would no longer switch on. In terms of build quality it's probably worth a play but don't expect anything amazing. Android Wear in its pre-2.0 iteration is horribly fiddly and unintuitive, and this watch won't be getting that update that fixes that!
Thanks for this mate. I think I will pick one up as I will be travelling about this weekend so I may pop into a couple of different John Lewis stores and see what they have in stock. I always wanted the plain black with the black leather strap but the stainless steel is growing on me. Hopefully they still have a few left! :)
ive had mine for a nearly 2 weeks now and still haven't got bored, i had a Microsoft band 2 and got bored of that in days, sold the lumia and band and got my 360 with a new android and the difference is unreal. Like how apps you install on phone have a "wear" app version on watch, battery is lasting over a full day with plenty of work emails, personal emails and google speak usage, Controlling music is handy to. google kicks Cortana in to touch massively. To answer your question, Now i got one i would have happily paid the £99 i see on JL website to be honest. So if they match it or not its worth the money, and 2nd gen is really about physical build alterations mostly. For me £39 for used was an obvious buy, the logic of if 1 min on someone else's wrist means used then every new car is used. Sour grapes and all that for people that say other wise. Happy to answer any queries on them.
Yes this is what I was thinking along the lines of. But if I showed them this thread, you think they would price match the watch? They should right?
for your uses it would be fine, especially for 35quid! let alone any one of the sub 100quid prices :0) I use mine to control my music, messages and funnily enough, to tell the time ;) ......great device.....got a proper new steel one (not a return) for 79quid as JL in Oxford Street price matched when I showed them a hukd post :0)....go for it....beats spending nearly 300quid.....
I have seen some on my lunch break at Nottingham Victoria Centre. I just wanted to know from people, whether these are worth getting as I would really like to get the second gen via Moto Maker but they never have any stock. And also the price is a bit of an issue, the variation I want would set me back £289 or thereabouts, whereas these can be picked up from around £80. I have a Nexus 6P and was wondering whether it would be worth getting one of these instead of the second gen as I know these wont be getting any updates and the second gen will so will be more future proof. All I'll ever use this for would be the time, health apps, checking the odd message and google maps, so is it worth getting for this kind of price range or better to hold off?
Well that seemed to end quickly. I am looking to buy the sport version tonight for £50 and hoping it has improved a bit after 7 months. did anyone keep theirs and still like it. band still holding together?
Well after one week I've sold mine to CEX for a £30 loss lol (£96 credit) on a brighter note I repurchased my old garmin vivoactive HR which is awesome again... Until the next one ;)
Well that's it, mine is going back too. The OK Google commands are just too unreliable. I'll hold out for something more reliable further down the line.
Its completely tied to the phone for anything useful. Theres no browser without the phone switched on, and I cant even use the gps with an offline google or here map. The battery drops like a stone and Ok Google is unresponsive most of the time. I thought the flat tyre wouldnt annoy, but it does. Wanted to love this watch, but I'll wait till something better comes out withWear 2 installed.
What put you off?
No problem, I guessed that might have been the case after a bit of searching afterwards :)
Yes it was £89, last week when i typed in Google smart watch 3 black at Very it was still showing as £89 but now its £99 oos, sorry for confusion.
That's strange cos when I posted this it was still £89 for the black one I checked first but now £99 oos, and its just to point out there is cheaper options if your looking for maybe the first time. Or I'm just still excited lol.
Yes everything fails at low depths, but the SW3 is waterproof in the sense that I can take it in the shower or the pool and it works fine. I use the SW3 for recording my lengths in the pool, and sync it to swim.com
Ah ok that makes more sense, I thought it was a current deal. Thanks for the info.
Does this come with the option to detonate remote mines????
Used it when it came out a long time ago but was a huge drain on battery - has that improved?
OP you really should put a download link for people to get the sound effect from the game! :p (get to it)
I've got this. It's pretty awesome. Only downside is that you still get shot when you look at it!
I cannot see the option to make it Square. It puts a round face on the square screen and misses using a lot of the screen. Not very good.
Got my leather watch today, just can't pair it with android wear, apparently you have to download updates using android phone first to make it work, so will try later when I get my spare android phone back. Ordered at 2 o'clock when it came back to stock and just received it today.
I originally ordered the Stainless Steel one for £99, as the grey leather was out of stock, then ordered the grey leather one also when it came back into stock, thought i'd get both, see which one i linked more, seeing as JL have free returns. Picked up both yesterday from my local Waitrose store, and have to say the steel one is much nicer, much more premium feel to it. I find the grey leather one too light, and the strap to me seems a bit naf and plastic. Go going to return the leather one, and keep the steel one. Not too sure about battery life yet, only getting less than 12 hours on a full charge (and that was overnight also), but i think that's down to the watch downloaded 2-3 updates, and those seems to really eat battery life. Took it off charge @ 100% at 11am this morning, installed and update, and it's now down to 60%. Let's see.... Also, when doing updated the watch does get quite warm at the back cover when on your hand.
As previously stated ordered at 1545 yesterday , arrived at my local Waitrose today on C&C , playing with it now .
orderd at 2pm yesterday. Back order email received just before midnight. Not holding out much hope.
I ordered immediately when the grey leather came back into stock yesterday, got my 2 warranty email yesterday an hour later, and then it dispatched last night around 12am. Just had a text from Waitrose saying it's awaiting collection in my Waitrose store. Will pop up later and collect
Sent mine back last week, initially battery seemed ok at best but after about a week of using it, it would be down to about 15%-20% after about 10-12 hours of wearing it, shame as I quite liked, one thing I would have liked would have been to have a speaker on it for handsfree calls
cheers. might pop in tomorrow
Thanks to the OP managed to snag one of these. The band is a little tight for me even with the extra links, and Motorola support have no stock. Anyone got any idea where an extra link or two could be purchased? I'm afraid my Googl skills have let me down
Still on the hangers in Swindon store - variety from leather strap at £79, chrome steel at £99 and black steel at £109. Got the steel with leather, tempted to buy the black as well at this price. Good spot OP!
Still in Stock, just ordered one!
Did you manage to get one?
back in stock
Android pay is already available, isn't it?
sw3 imo. nowhere near as good looking but features leave most other smart watch in it's dust. Almost certain to get wear 2.0 and amongst other features it's the only one with a proper nfc chip, so right now it's probably the only watch out that can do android pay if/when Google get round to releasing it.
I have one and find it quite useful for a small view of your phone without needing to get the phone itself out and, on the same note, it's good for dictating a text message when you've got your hands full athoigh you do need to look a bit of nerd saying OK Google to your watch! Also a good pedometer or exercise tracker. Battery life is about 2 full days
Can I just add weight to the travesty that is SBE for phone repairs; they took in my LG tablet last year, took weeks and then returned it with a dead pixel. I had to return it for another repair and so I was out of phone use for a month and half...did I get compensate? Nope, barely an apology.
which Oregon scientific watch did you buy and from where?
Looks like the watch from the Division
That us a shame. Motorola are high on my list of companies but I do hear a lot about how bad their CS is. I sent my 360 v1 in for repair once do to cracks on the back and received a replacement within 1 week.
Also, I vow never to own another Motorola product after the shocking treatment I had from them... 3 repairs to my Moto 360, 2 of which were defects from the shocking repair firm SBE, they turned around and said that they would not replace after I found the side button was not working a month after the previous repair, and now stuck with a paperweight, legal action is difficult as I bought it from the US. Worth mentioning that during this time I also went through 3 x Motorola Nexus 6 phones because of inherent defects in those also.
100% agree with this. I don't have a 2nd gen (I have the original 360..) but to be honest it's the same for any Android Wear watch right now. Although I do wear a FitBit Charge HR on the same wrist though.. And I had that first! Fitbit has a far better social hub (Googles is is pretty non-existent) and has weekly challenges and other sources of inspiration but is extremely useless at notifying you of anything but a phone call, so worth a spot on my arm along side the 360 which does the rest.
absolutely agree with your comments. I don't understand why those watches are not more popular! They're brilliant!
I have had my Moto G first gen for a year an a and love it, but it't not that cool new gadget to show off (though it does get lots of attention it noticed) it's a notification centre that's immediately viewable. Think of it more as a alternative to Google Glass than a phone. You won't stop using your phone, it's not the same thing, it's a centralised place for all notifications to go that is easier to get to than taking the phone our your pocket. Now it can do a lot more than this, and it's fitness features are very cool (though you need to carry the phone with you when running anyway as it doesn't have gps) you can find some weird gimmicky apps like playing doom on it or whatever (but it's impractical and silly) but the coolest thing bout this, is you get lots of notifications? immediately see what they are. Want to reply to that whatsapp or sms now without getting phone out pocket?, hands aren't free etc? talk to reply (voice recognition), swipe a message back (flick keyboard) delete the email,mark as read etc. Ultimately my phone use has changed a lot since getting the watch. Instead of getting the phone out my pocket every 5 mins to check what's going on and see what the new notification was, I look at my watch. I interact with the notification: delete, label, download, whatever and that's it. I get my phoe out my pocket for full conversations, for web browsing/new reading etc. I no longer need to get my phone out my pocket for the 5 second stuff. I like this because it's convenient, it's safer (I don't like walking around holding a £500 phone in the high street as there's a lot of phone thefts in the city) and one big plus for me: I don't miss notifications or calls anymore. I missed so many calls and notifications when my phone was silent, or quiet, if I was walking in a busy and loud high street, or muted in the quiet office. I missed job interviews, important family calls etc. Never again. and that's more than justified the cost of the watch for me. I understand not everyone cares enough to pay £100 on a notification centre, but that's their prerogative. I absolutely would and am glad I did.
I had one as a present from my wife. Couldn't get on with it The Heart rate sensor didn't pick up my heartrate. The battery didn't last a full day. The apps didn't work - BBC app would show an article I'd click on it then the watch froze...... Fortunately amazon took it back Really liked the look of it and wanted to use it
Simple option would be Fitbit Charge HR, now around £95-£100. Tracks steps/ distance & calories, also sleep and heart rate. Caller notifications.
Sorry but that must be the ugliest smartwatch I have ever seen :(
. it got heart sensor, wireless docking charger. and round shape which I prefer
If you are using it for sports, possibly. My Swr50 fell off whilst cycling to be lost forever because of a rubbish strap design. Aside from the strap and my grievance, the swr50 is pretty much perfect, and I am yet to see a compelling reason to spend more on a watch for any meaningful features.
Genuine question, but is this really worth the £60 over the Sony Smartwatch 3?
Yea, power-laces! Shoes ruined forever. Or perhaps sheep gut condoms and crocodile poo were better? Damn you scientists!!
Can't seem to find the Moto 360 2nd gen on the website? Does the codes still work?
Both codes still works and stack, giving £40 off (and there is free shipping).
got the watch, it was delivered surprisingly quickly within 3 days... been using it for a couple weeks and am quite happy with it so far.. main thing being that its shape and form is that of a normal watch so doesnt stand out awkwardly..
ensure all lowercase for ukwelcome10
still works!! awesome!
I've got pure gym code i won't be able to use because I'm moving house midway through so waste of time
After a load of hassle back and forth with O2, because they didn't send me the gym code, they have finally decided they have none left which is really disappointing as I was actually going to use it! And there are none left on ebay either apart from one chancer wanting £95!
Sold the garmin for £93 on ebay.
I'm an existing PG member and received two emails: 1) Welcome to PG with my access pin 2) Direct Debit Advance Notice confirming that payment will not be taken until October 2016
I got mine in a separate bag so it looks like its random Best contact them if you haven't received it mtowns
No, it was back in stock today, 37 mins after posting it went out of stock.
It was posted because at the time of posting it was in stock. 37 mins after posting it went out of stock, so I expired the post.
This came back in to stock today but was sold out 37 mins after I posted it! So to clarify it was in stock when posted but then went out of stock.
I want to but cannot PM as apparently am not that active on HUKD.
Not in dark chrome with a metal strap it wasn't...
1 gen already was 99 = COLD
You have a friend called massive who needs this watch? This is basically what you just wrote.
Have you updated it? I know it was meant to have been slow in the past but that was fixed a while ago.
I have this watch and it's great. I was forever missing phone calls before as I wear headphones in work, I like the fact that I can change the display every few days and the displays are good looking, I don't miss texts when I'm in Asda, etc. For me it's a bit like a tablet in that it's one of those things you have to try to see if you really have a need for one. And of course, the obligatory matrix watch face :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-nwzgAmq2o
Received this afternoon. Gosh it looks sexier than the photos!! And no additional charges!!
Mine arrived yesterday, all good apart from the EU power adaptor in the box, although the dock takes standard microusb (the same as phones).
30EUR discount offer ran out yesterday (3rd jan)
No discount showing on final confirmation screen.
Ah, fair enough. I couldn't find the 42mm silver and brown anywhere (before 1st February at least) so I settled for the black. Much cheaper too...
I had it and hated the battery life
Yeah, but you'll need to pair it to an Android device first, update it, then wipe it before it'll work with iPhone.
Advise getting a pebble , it's so boring but that's actually a good thing , I would imagine the watch like this any moment I was bored I would be prodding and poking my wrist .
Had it in my basket. Was doing payment info. Changed to 149 when I hit pay. Cold.
Says out of stock and the price is up to £149
