Motorola Moto 360

The Good The Moto 360's distinctive round design and premium materials look sharp. It's lightweight and comfortable, and it doubles as a bedside clock with its clever included inductive charging cradle.

The Bad Its battery life is not good enough for a watch. Its Android Wear software is awkward and not entirely useful, its fitness features are lacking, and its round display has a weird black bar at the bottom.

The Bottom Line The Moto 360 tries to be the ultimate smartwatch, but it just ends up being a better-looking Android Wear watch with some notable limitations.

Motorola's round watch not a full revolution

Everyone's trying to create magic on your wrist. To date, few have succeeded.

I've been wearing the Moto 360 for about a month, and I really wanted it to be the ultimate smartwatch. But it's not. The Moto 360 is a mixed bag of a gadget, yet another smartwatch rather than a must-have.
