Moto 360 Review (2015)

Moto 360 Review (2015)

Today we review the second generation Moto 360 for the year 2015. This is a follow-up to a winning design from Motorola for the year 2014, they being the first creators of a "round" watch for the Android Wear platform. This time around, their design becomes ever-so-slightly more traditional. This time the device has arms (or lugs, if you prefer), and can be custom-ordered like its Moto X smartphone brethren. There's also two different "Designed for Men" models and one "Designed for Women" model for whatever reason.

The QQ Watch is colorful and styled in such a way that it resembles a legitimate smartwatch, though the wearable isn't as functional as something the child's parent may be wearing.

Instead, Motorola will present a device that sits nicely beside the Moto 360 to present a two-tier smartwatch release approach.

Using Blue Link, the wearable can also be used to lock the doors using Apple Watch and as a remote start button for firing up the engine from “almost anywhere”, says the auto maker.
