The Motorola Connect app isn't required to use a Moto 360, but it's what you need to install in order to tweak some of the device's default watch faces.
The latest update adds four more to the list, along with the ability to change the color of the smartwatch's charging screen from the default blue. There are five to choose from altogether: blue, red, green, purple, and yellow. Read More
Moto 360 owners have been enjoying a Moto Body application on their watch since the Motorola Connect update in November 2014. The app, however, was limited to the confines of the small screen on their wrist, providing daily steps, calories, and activity data, but with no weekly or monthly stats. That changes today with the dedicated Moto Body application that has hit the Play Store.
The app isn't a Motorola exclusive — it is compatible with various brands of Android devices, as long as the phone runs Android 4.3 and up. But it will only install the Wear component on a Moto 360, so you won't be able to use it on other smartwatches. Read More
Motorola hasn't done a particularly good job of keeping its new Android Wear devices a secret, but today they've made them official. There are now four models to choose from: what you might call the "classic" version, 46mm wide, a new 42mm smaller version that comes in men's and women's variants, and the "sport" model with a silicone band and built-in GPS. All of them ditch Motorola's questionable choice of a Texas Instruments chipset in favor of the Snapdragon 400, which has become the de facto standard for Android Wear watches.
Aside from the new size and the sport model, the changes are few, at least on the outside. Read More
Yesterday famed leaker @evleaks shared yet another confirmation of the 2nd generation Moto 360's design. Today, @upleaks is taking things to another level. Not only do we get another glimpse at the upcoming Android Wear device, we see a second model with a plastic band.
This more casual smartwatch is the Moto 360 Sport, according to @upleaks. It looks not too dissimilar to the Sony Smartwatch 3. Only this time you have a circular display, flat tire still included. Read More
I would say you should feel excited, but we've actually seen the upcoming Moto 360 reboot a few times already. In yet another confirmation that Motorola is on the verge of announcing at least one and probably two new models of the Moto 360, our industry's most famous tipster, @evleaks, briefly came out of retirement to share the above image with the world.
In context, there is no useful additional information offered.
Our highly scientific analysis in Android Police's group chat has revealed that these two renders appear to be the same size in terms of watch face, so are not both the rumored 360S and 360L; just one of the two in different style combinations. Read More
You already know what the next Moto 360 will look like. We know you do. You may also be aware that Motorola plans to ship the device in two sizes this time around. Well, HelloMoto HK has shared two photos of the upcoming device, and in one of them, we get to see how much smaller one version of the new Moto 360 will be. In the image above you can see it side-by-side with the current model.
One complaint with the existing Moto 360 was that, stylish as it was, the device was still a bit on the bulky side, especially for female wrists. Read More
Is that the new Moto 360 on your wrist? Wait, sorry, no, I'm not going to say that out loud. I'm just going to sneak out my phone and... ah hah, got it! Time to upload these images and show the world that yes, this is precisely how the new Moto 360 will look.
Huh? Hello there. Sorry, I have imaginary conversations in my head sometimes. But yes, what you see above is an alleged picture of the Moto 360 version 2.0 on the arm of a woman talking on her smartphone somewhere in Chicago. That's a crown located at the 2PM position, and those are lugs at the top and bottom, matching what we've seen before. Read More
We've seen a possible early look at the next version of Motorola's Moto 360 watch earlier today, and now it looks like there are new indications of multiple models for the Android Wear line. Anatel, Brazil's federal telecom regulator (the equivalent of the FCC in the US) has listed two new Motorola devices for certification: the 360S and 360L. The product names obviously point to new watch models, but it's the batteries that should really pique your interest. The listing was spotted by 9to5 Google.
In addition to standard radio documentation for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, Anatel lists the 360S with a 270mAh battery and the 360L with a 375mAh battery. Read More
Over a month ago the Moto 360 went on sale for $150. Now it looks like the circular smartwatch may have permanently dropped in price. The Google Store, Motorola.com, and Amazon are all listing it priced at $100 less than its original MSRP (though Best Buy still shows it at $250).
The Moto 360 probably remains the most well-known Android Wear device, even if it's hardly the latest and greatest. Thanks to Motorola's craftmanship, the watch still makes for a stylish timepiece. So if you don't want to wait around for the next generation of Wear devices or part with over twice as much money for the LG Watch Urbane, now's not a bad time to pick up a Moto 360 for a lot less than it used to be.

Android Wear 5.1 is a substantial update. It has rolled out to pretty much all of the current smartwatches, except for the Moto 360. Motorola's smartwatch has been hampered by issues and delays. Fortunately, it looks like that is about to change. Googler Wayne Piekarski announced via Google+ that an over-the-air update will start hitting devices today.
Why are we excited about this update? It brings Wi-Fi connectivity, cloud sync, always on apps, and a number of other useful features. I regularly activate my own Moto 360 by accident, so the inclusion of a built-in lockscreen is reason enough to want the latest version. Read More
