Meet the Moto 360 smartwatch

Smartwatcheslook to be here to stay, and the Motorola Moto 360 is one of the best looking. With its circular, stainless steel metal design, it’s definitely something to be proud of when it’s on your wrist.

It’s not just the round shape that looks good either. There are a choice of straps, with metal and leather available, and the watch face itself is covered in specially hardened Corning Gorilla Glass to stop scratches. There are also a choice of 6 watch faces, which you can change digitally whenever you want. It’s even water-resistant.

And then we get into the things that the Moto 360 can do that a normal watch can’t. It uses theAndroid Wearsoftware, designed specifically for smartwatches. It lets you know when you get notifications on your smartphone, so it vibrates and gives you a pop up when you get a text or email. In fact, practically any notification on your phone pops up on the 360.

The Moto 360 will also pop up with timely updates. Always go to work at 8am? It’ll let you know how the traffic is on your commute. Take a walk at 12? It’ll show you the weather forecast to let you know if you’ll need an umbrella.

There’s also a mic on the smartwatch. That means you can control it with just your voice. Search the web, reply to text messages, check the weather and more. It means your phone can stay in your pocket, and you can respond to things faster than ever.

Lots of wearables have been made to track your fitness, so the Moto 360 can do that too. There’s a pedometer that tells you how far you’ve walked, and it’ll tell you when you’ve hit your target. There’s a heart rate monitor too, perfect for finding out if you’re trying hard enough during your workouts.

Because the Moto 360 has the same style as a watch, it really fits in with most people’s normal fashion, and you don’t feel like you’re wearing something too overtop. But with all the features, including wireless charging, it’s so futuristic and useful you’ll love it much more than a typical shiny watch.
