Moto 360 lags behind its competitors for its battery and lack of inbuilt camera. Though camera on a smartwatch is not so much desired but battery is no doubt one of the deciding factors.

You may keep Ambient display off to get some extra hours. The watch comes with a wireless charging dock and a charger.

    Normally that’s impossible. My phone is always either in my pocket or in my hands, because missing an email or a text or a killer snap is just entirely unfathomable. But this morning, I was reading an email on my wrist, and walked out the door without even checking my pockets. That’s what the Moto 360 has done to me: I already feel naked without it, but I don’t notice my smartphone so much anymore.

    The Moto 360 is the smartwatch I’ve been waiting for, the $249 timepiece that promised to be the first Android Wear device I’d actually want to wear. It’s designed to prove that smartwatches don’t have to be ugly. That they can, and must, be beautiful. That a smartwatch should be a watch, and that being a watch is ultimately the only thing that matters.

    Motorola has said all the right things for months, but it’s time to put up or shut up. The 360 goes on sale today, and it does so under the watchful eye of the smartwatch industry. Everyone from Apple to Rolex to Swatch is looking on, waiting to see what happens next.

Moto 360 is something nearest to what people needs and that’s why is still best android smartwatch. I would like to see the 2nd generation of it.
