We now live in a time when everything we need is already at the palm of our hands. This is true. However, we would like to add that these advancements have also gone beyond our hands. Why, these even extend up to our wrists!
We now have smart watches that have been “enhanced,” so that these go beyond timekeeping.
Smartwatches can be defined as computerized wristwatches that have features similar to smartphones. You can check emails, messages, notifications, applications, maps, and basically anything you need see online from the watch display.
We recently reviewed the Motorola Moto 360 (2nd Generation). Here’s what we’ve summed up:
The Moto 360 V2 was released in September 2015. It runs on Android Wear OS and has a battery that can last up to 48 hours.
User will be notified if there are new messages, app updates, or weather changes at a glance. The time face automatically lights up with a flick of the wrist. A few swipes is all you need to check everything you want.
It even has an easy charging feature for those who don’t like long wires in their workplace or bedside table. All you need to do is place the watch on top of the charging dock and you’re all set.
It’s also a perfect health companion. You can stay fit by tracking your steps, calories, and heart rate in an instant. No need to install multiple apps for that.
In case these features are not enough for you, you can get your favorite apps on Google Play (since it’s an Android watch) for more fun-sized activities.
Want a different look for your OOTD? Moto 360 V2 has quick-release bands that make switching a snap as well as different display choices to suit your needs and style. Have we mentioned that it’s really comfy and lightweight, too?
As for its size, this smartwatch is a bit bigger than the usual men’s watch — 1.56 inches in diameter, to be exact. Resolution is at 360 x 330 pixels.
Here’s the best part: It’s got voice command!
The Moto 360 works with phones running on Android 4.3+ and iOS 8.2+ (minus Moto Connect and Moto Body, though).
MBLife verdict: It’s a pretty decent smartwatch for people who don’t like checking their phones from time to time and for those who would like to add oomph to their style. The Horween Leather band choices are also very classy!
