The new Moto has a heart rate tracker on board, just like last year’s model, making it a decent option for measuring your workouts. And, more importantly, does it improve in the areas where last year’s model failed? Perhaps the smartest design change Motorola made was to offer the new Moto in two different sizes: Beyond these features, Android Wear now supports full applications; you can access your app list by holding down on the Moto ‘s side button. In addition to those two variants, there’s also a second 42mm option, built specifically with women in mind.

If you use the company’s services religiously, you’ll get more useful info out of Google Now pushed to your watch. It’s foolish of Motorola to sell a watch and tout its activity-tracking features without offering a band suited for use during exercise.

But now, an all-new Moto is in the wild, with two case sizes, totally mktorola guts and a host of ways to make it fit your own style. For example, Wunderlist only shows items that are in your “Inbox”; any other list you might have will be inaccessible. The device is still dominated by its circular display that still has a tiny slice removed from the bottom where sensors are housed — a move that keeps its bezel nice and slim.

The Moto made a huge splash when it was introduced alongside Android Wear some 18 months ago.

In the real world, this meant I could comfortably use the Moto all day, with plenty of power 360c when I finally went to bed. A year ago, that would have sounded pretty appealing, but at this point there’s basically no reason for an iPhone user to seriously consider the Motomogorola when an Apple Watch isn’t much more expensive. Much of your mptorola will depend on how invested you are in Google services, but if you have your heart set on an Android Wear device, the Moto is one of the better options out there.


Voice search worked well enough, although it failed to recognize the “OK Google” command often enough to be a bit frustrating. Despite that, I still wouldn’t rate the display as anything particularly special — it’s a bit easier to read outdoors, and the higher resolution is certainly appreciated, but colors aren’t terribly vibrant.

There’s a smaller 42mm option as well as the same 46mm case that last year’s model was based on. But these options come at a cost. Battery life was terrible; performance was occasionally sluggish; and the device itself was far too large for those with svelte wrists. From there, you’ll still get the notifications from your phone mirrored on your Motoand you’ll also receive Google Now info, provided you log in with your Google account.

Beyond these features, Android Wear now supports full applications; you can access your app list by holding down on the Moto ‘s side button. That’s not moyorola complete deal breaker, as there are plenty of third-party options like Runkeeper for tracking your more vigorous physical activity.

If you’re a fan of Android Wear, this is probably the best option out there — but it comes at a higher cost than last year. But there are also far more Android Wear watches to choose motodola now than last year.

As such, it’s worth noting what the Moto can and cannot do when paired with an iPhone. Notifications were pushed to my watch quickly and dismissing them helpfully syncs that change back to your phone.


Thanks to the changes Motorola has made to the Motoas well as the enhancements that have come to the Android Wear platform as a whole, the new is easier to recommend than its predecessor.

Smart displays came into their own in The new Moto is entering a much more crowded field than the original did last year. Hardware and display While the Moto looks largely the same as its predecessor, Motorola gave the internals a significant upgrade. The will work fine as a basic activity tracker, but if you want a bit more detail about your workouts, you’ll need to look elsewhere. Perhaps the smartest design change Motorola made was to offer the new Moto in two different sizes: The model I tested had a 46mm silver case, gold bezel and brown leather strap.

The Moto ‘s upgraded hardware typically handled all these features without a problem: Notifications 36v0 Google apps are also particularly useful — being able to look down at my wrist and quickly delete emails helped keep my inbox a lot cleaner.

This is also a major functional improvement, as it’s now quite easy to change the watch strap yourself. That said, it’s still one of the better-looking smartwatches on the market, by a longshot.

Lastly, the is still rather thick, although its light weight makes wearing it easy enough. Setup is simple and essentially identical to the process on an Android phone — you download the iOS Android Wear app to your iPhone, pair over Bluetooth and then you’re off and running. Moto review 15 Photos
