The third-generation Moto 360 was released at the end of last year, notably developed by eBuyNow and not Motorola. It was a good-looking watch that generally worked well, but the original $350 asking price was ridiculous. Now the Moto 360 is available for just $179.99, almost $100 cheaper than the Fossil Gen 5 currently costs. Read More
The new Moto 360 smartwatch (which isn't made by Motorola) with Google's Wear OS was nearly impossible to recommend when it was first released, mostly because it was priced at $350. That was an absurd cost, especially when Fossil's Gen 5 watches are around $250, but now the 360 has dropped to a much more reasonable $199.99 at multiple retailers. Read More
The original Moto 360 was the first mainstream smartwatch with a round screen (ignoring the 'flat tire' at the bottom), which meant that despite its terrible internal hardware, it was definitely unique among a sea of ugly square smartwatches. Motorola followed it up with a sequel in 2015, and then in 2016, the company said it was done making wearables.
The new Moto 360 is almost entirely disconnected from its predecessor (it's manufactured by eBuyNow, not Motorola) and lacks the technological and design innovation that made the original watch so special. Much like a direct-to-video Disney sequel, there's not much to complain about, but there's also nothing unique or interesting to speak of. Read More
Wearable fans have something to be happy about today. After getting a glimpse of the new Moto 360 back in October, the smartwatches are now open for preorder and set to start shipping early next year. For better or worse, though, the watch isn't being produced by Motorola this time around. Instead, it's made by a company called eBuyNow who has licensed the Moto 360 branding. Read More
Of all the things we expected to come out of Lenovo's Motorola this year — mediocre modular phones, a flank of mid-rangers, and a foldable to behold — we did not think a new Wear OS smartwatch would be one. That said, we do have a 3rd-gen Moto360 (no space, as styled) to wait for, but it doesn't look to have been manufactured by Motorola. Read More
The first Huawei Watch has long been held up as a prime example of a Wear OS device, while its successor, the Huawei Watch 2, didn't fare so well with critics. Both, however, benefit from a surprisingly active joint community of fans that are eager for all the latest updates. Android Police's tips inbox lit up with a flurry of activity when new UI changes courtesy of Wear OS v2.17 began to roll out over the past day, with users reporting that their devices now felt much smoother and faster.

Android Wear 2.0 hasn't been as fast of a rollout as everyone had hoped, to put it mildly. The first watches to ship with the update were LG's Watch Style and Watch Sport, but existing watches have had to wait anywhere from a few weeks to several months for the update. Read More
The price of new Android Wear devices is still quite high, but many of the watches released a year or two ago are almost as capable as the new ones. Plus, they're cheap now. Case in point, you can get the Moto 360 v2 from B&H for as little as $190, and that's for the super-fancy gold metal version. Read More
We're impatiently waiting for Android Wear 2.0 to roll to some of the most popular watches released: the second generation Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch. There are also other watches that still haven't received the update and weeks are passing by quickly without a hint of when exactly we should expect the new firmware to hit.
Android Wear support forums' community manager Ernest has posted an update a few hours ago explaining the situation with the different Wear watches and their update timelines. He reiterated the watches that have already received the update, but most importantly, he said that the remaining models should receive their updates by end of April or late May. Read More
If you are rocking an Android Wear device that won't be getting the 2.0 update, then chances are that you're in the market for a new smartwatch (that is, if you still are digging Android Wear). One of the sharpest looking options in the current crop of devices is the second gen Moto 360. If you can forgive the flat-tire, there is a lot to like in this watch, including its price today. Right now, over at B&H, there are three different styles of the 360 on sale at some of the lowest prices we have ever seen. Read More
