Personally, I’m from the moment the announcement was waiting Moto 360 review. Firstly, I like the brand Moto, secondly, wearable electronics firmly riveted my interest. And in this particular case, we can add the fact that I like to watch. Unlike Pebble , which I shall not leave for a long time, Moto 360 review was done by people who do not care for the appearance of their hours. When buying Pebble I was very sad to give up my favorite Tissot T-Touch, for the sake of intelligent functionality. So, let’s see whether Moto 360 review be not only beautiful, but smart accessory.
The first and foremost advantage of smart hours Moto – they are round. A lot of people complained about the black stripes that makes the display is not perfectly round, but, in fact, it is not something to look at what stops daily wear. Personally, I think attracts how refracted light on sawn faces glass and I do not like it. There is a feeling that after a month of wearing cease to notice it, but for that week I spent with the clock, this fact does not give me rest. Unfortunately, no picture, no video capture is not obtained. You’ll have to just take my word for it.
The second thing to note – for a circle of radius of such a classic strap 22 mm seems too narrow. Yes, this solution has the advantage that you can easily find a replacement for the standard strap. Nevertheless, the clock appear too large for it. Would he still have at least an inch, I would call Moto 360 review Women’s Accessories. Complete strap, ostensibly because of the skin, is not very pleasant to the touch and wear out too quickly, also because of it need to be careful when washing your hands, and do not go in the shower in hours, although the device is protected against water and dust to IP67 standard.
Tires would be a more practical option, in addition, would have looked better than this “skin”. I prefer the metal. But not everyone he comes, someone appears skin irritation. However, Moto 360 review and come with a metal strap, however, $ 50 more.
By the very “body” there is no question of hours. Looks very aesthetically pleasing even in details. If you hold the circle itself, the sense of lost toys, and thus – with a good strap they will look and feel much more expensive. On the hand the watch look quite presentable and fit, perhaps, any style casual wear – from sports to a strict office. On the body is just a mechanical key.
She is responsible for the display output from sleep mode, that is similar to the simple. At first glance it seems an unnecessary thing, and a tribute to a classic watch. But what we have when we put on the gloves? That’s right, we only available voice control and, therefore, need a key to start it.
I would like to recall a little bit about the equipment. The device is packaged in a beautiful cylindrical box. This is a willful decision to the manufacturer for an emphasis on the circumference hours. Willful because such boxes in the production of significantly more expensive than conventional, rectangular. Included except the hours I found the cable USB – microUSB cable and socket – microUSB. Both are designed to charge the device.
Is not entirely clear, why not just put the power supply, as is the practice of mobile device manufacturers for many years. But the most noticeable in the set – it’s a docking station, which, in combination, also acts as a wireless charging. It is minimalistic, made of a nice rubberized plastic, and most importantly – watch it look cool. Personally, I am very pleased to keep a watch on the bedside table at night.
Display – Moto 360 review
A little sad that the display Moto 360 review takes up so much space on the device, because it is slightly spoils the overall appearance, if we consider the device near. It is equipped with 1.56-inch IPS-display with a resolution of 320 x 290, 30 missing pixels spent on the black bar below the display, which is needed to accommodate a light sensor.
I loved the T-shirt “is measured by PPI” in our store, and so, by measuring the ppi, I found the 277 pixels per inch. From memory, the display LG G Watch liked me more at a lower pixel density. In Moto 360 review simply set the matrix is not of the best quality. If I had a choice, I would take a watch with AMOLED-display. Firstly, the vast amount of time the watch is carried out in the mode, oddly enough, hours – show time. In Moto 360 review in this mode the backlight is reduced to a minimum, as is the case with AMOLED-display black pixels simply do not have shone, it would give the natural black color and save battery charge.
Iron and autonomy – Moto 360 review
Despite the freshness of the product, filling Moto 360 review was found in the bins warehouses Motorola. Outdated processor from Texas Instrumests – OMAP3630, by the way, almost all the stuffing device “forged in the smithy” TI. That you understand all the sadness, this processor was released at a time when there was the company Sony Ericsson, had time to release a device on its base.
The processor was released in 2010, and at its base are constructed such oldies as Motorola Bravo, Defy, Milestone 2 and Droid 2. processor is configured for 48-nanometer process technology, which affects the power consumption. And this at a time when Intel processors are already on the 14-nm process technology. RAM – 512 MB and 4 GB of storage. Pro performance have nothing to say, it is exactly the same as in the LG G Watch , something impermissible for a fresh system (such as Android Wear) was observed.
How do I find specialists iFixit, in Moto 360 review The battery 300 mAh instead of the claimed 320 mAh. Motorola responded to this discovery as a sluggish, but assured that the battery supplied with this only the first party, which does not justify them. Despite the reduced battery and old power-hungry processor autonomy of the device was enough for me, and the clock worked all the time with an active display. That is, the time is always shown.
Total for the 13 hours they are “eaten” by 60% of the charge. I’m not one of those people who will be sleeping in hours what whatsoever. And what put them on the table, I should rather put them in a convenient dock, where they will be charged and beautifully illuminated. So plenty of autonomy, provided that every night they will be charged. Due to QI (wireless) charging it charges long enough – about 1.5 – 2 hours, but, again, in the same mode, which I have described, no problems should not be. Do not rule out that the increase in the number of third-party software for Android Wear this autonomy is not enough.
Conclusions – Moto 360 review
Despite the huge number of questions, Moto 360 review are high-quality product, though it is mainly for the design. Their closest competitor – LG G Watch, a bit more practical, but look much worse. Their price difference is not that big, but the object of this review looks much more attractive. In addition, if you except the round, do not take no clock, the Moto 360 review is for you, because other wise round the clock on Android Wear (LG G Watch R) are prohibitively expensive.
