The first reviews of the Moto360 are in, and they’re basically all unanimous: this is the first proper smartwatch, and if you want to buy a smartwatch today, this is the one you should go for. Reception is apparently good, since Motorola states they are already sold out – but they’re not providing any numbers, so take that with a grain of salt.
That being said, there’s one huge drawback to the Moto360, and in my view, it’s a massive dealbreaker: battery life if poor. Very poor. Most reviews are reporting about 12 hours of battery life, which, for a watch, is completely, utterly, and wholly unacceptable. People had to put it back on its chargers late in the afternoon, which effectively makes it a useless device.
Apple, it’s your turn. I wonder if you’ve solved the battery problem.
