A detailed, complete, and fair (and not overly long) comparison between the Apple Watch and the Moto 360. While it’s unlikely you’re deciding between the two – unless you have both a recent iPhone and an Android phone – it may still be useful if you’re up for a new phone and want to take the Wear/Apple Watch accessory into account for your purchase.
Personally, I wouldn’t buy either of these two devices at this very moment. It’s too early days, and they’re not exactly cheap, either – especially taking into account that a new Moto 360 is probably around the corner already, and you’ll see a new Apple Watch within around 12 months, too.
After having tried a friends apple watch (sport) for a few hours, I think Apple nailed it. You actually have to try it to see why I guess.
I’m probably not going to get one until the next iteration, unless software updates improves battery life. I absolutely want stuff like sleep tracking and health monitoring and analysis, which requires far better battery life so I can wear it at most nights.
But the build quality is just stunning – so much better than images indicated, and everything local is snappy (didn’t try off-loaded apps).
It took me about 20 minutes to “get” the various input control mechanism, but after that it’s a breeze really.
I can imagine this selling in spades, because it’s a great piece of technology.
