Motorola Moto 360 review

Motorola Moto 360 review

In some ways, the Moto 360 is back. This smartwatch, unlike the prior two, is built by licensee eBuyNow. The latest edition, like its predecessors, is attractive, with a classic round form. It offers many of the features you’d expect from a watch that costs more, such as an always-on display and water resistance.


Both leather and silicone straps are included in the box, so you may switch between them for different activities. The straps include plenty of perforations, so they’ll fit comfortably on either a thin or thick wrist. The watch is a little thick at 11.68mm, but it’s not too heavy – though it did get stuck in our sleeves now and then.

Fitness Features and Apps:

The Moto 360 fitness watch keeps track of your steps, calories burnt, distance traveled, heart rate, and other fitness parameters. It also comes with an app that allows you to keep track of your walks, runs, yoga, and strength training sessions. Because it lacks a built-in sleep tracker, you’ll have to rely on third-party apps to keep track of your sleep. The built-in Google Fit app on the Moto 360 keeps track of your heart rate throughout the day and allows you to manually check it at any time. You may use your voice to search for apps and games in the Play Store, or you can browse them by category. The Wear OS software store pales in comparison to the Apple Watch app store, but there are still lots of good options.


The Moto 360 boasts an always-on display, which eliminates the need to check the time on your wristwatch screen. In general, the screen is pleasant to use, but it is on the small side, as most smartwatches have a 1.5-inch or larger screen.

Navigating the moto 360:

The Moto 360 is a smartwatch that includes a built-in virtual assistant, Google Pay, and a flashlight that illuminates your screen when needed. The Google Fit app opens with a swipe from right to left, automatically tracking your steps, Move Minutes, and Heart Points. You may simply adjust these tiles by removing or adding new ones, such as a heart rate monitor or a timer.

Water Resistance:

The Moto 360 fitness band is splash and rain resistant, so you can use it during a sweaty workout without fear of it getting wet. According to eBuyNow, it passed a 10,000-stroke swim test and can be immersed securely in water up to 98 feet deep. To avoid damage, rinse it with fresh water if it comes into contact with saltwater or even perspiration.

Connection, Battery Woes:

In our tests, the Moto 360’s built-in Google Assistant was hit-or-miss. It functioned on occasion, but it frequently failed to react or displayed a variety of error messages. With heavy use, including tracking an early yoga session and two walks with my dog, the watch only lasted 12 hours. On the plus side, the Moto 360 charged from zero to 100 percent in the claimed one hour.


  • Design of a traditional wristwatch 
  • Display that is always on 
  • Fitness features galore 
  • Action button that can be customized


  • Expensive 
  • Battery life is limited. 
  • Google Assistant can be fickle at times. 
  • There isn’t any built-in sleep tracking.


The first Moto 360 smartwatch from eBuyNow isn’t bad, and given that the firm has licensing rights to create more Moto 360 smartwatches until 2024, there will almost certainly be more. Some may like the design, particularly the more colorful varieties, but we found the double bezel and thickness to be a turnoff. If battery life is a top priority, we wouldn’t recommend the Moto 360.
