PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless

Early December 2014, I bought the Moto 360 with Android Wear. As someone who loves both watches and technology, it seems like a great time to jump into the world of smartwatches, and see if it has evolved beyond the bulky '80s stuff that has come before. I'll first give you a concise history of smartwatches, after which I will dive into Wear and the 360 themselves.

Fix Wrist flip & battery life

Those are the two worst parts of it. I can see battery life being acceptable, if recharging it were easier. I don't wear watches, but when I did, I took them off at night. If my nightstand had a large wireless QI charger, just setting it on it would be acceptable, if it lasted just over one day.

But the acceleratorometer has to be fixed to allow more normal activation. Its pretty absurd right now.
