March 2014 - May 2017


When it first launched in 2014, we called the Moto 360 the “best Android Wear smartwatch currently available.” And yes, there weren’t many available at the time. But that doesn’t make this title any less significant. The Moto 360 was definitely the sexiest of the first generation of Android Wear devices, and was the first to feature a round display, which is notably an LCD — unlike most other Android Wear offerings.

Being a first generation product, the Moto 360 definitely has its bugs and kinks. The device has what many have called the “flat tire,” a section at the bottom of the screen that basically serves as its bezel. As we said in our review, though, there are only a few categories that really matter: Design/build quality, functionality, and battery life. And the Moto 360 is pretty much up to par in all three (except that darn flat tire. grr.).

Android Wear 2.0 went official following Google I/O and as we learn everything it’s capable of, we’re also finding out who will and will not get it. Just like with previous updates, just about everyone will be getting it, but this time around Google is dropping two models, the original LG G Watch and the 1st generation Moto 360.

Deal: You can get a Moto 360 Sport for just $161.32 on Amazon right now

The Moto 360 Sport, which we said earlier this year is the best Android Wear fitness solution so far, has today popped up on Amazon for a new low price of $161.32 shipped. That may not be as great of a deal as the crazy bundle that Motorola offered last week (which combined the Moto X Pure and the 360 Sport for just $400), but it’s the best deal we’ve seen yet for the watch by itself. $161.32 is about $40 less than the current going price of $200 and $140 less than its original retail price of $300…

Update 6/8: More watches are now receiving Android Wear 1.5, including the second generation Moto 360 and Moto 360 Sport. Release notes on Motorola’s website point to security and stability improvements, as well as enhancements for Moto Body.

Android Wear 2.0 will introduce a bevy of new features for users and developers when it is released in Q4 of 2016. Before that major update, however, it appears that a more incremental version of Wear is rolling out. Several Samsung Gear Live users have already received Android Wear 1.5 and are only seeing minor changes.
