Motorola is an old hand in mobile communication in the telecom sector. It has advanced technology development significantly since it’s beginning. One of the first wear OS smartwatch to burst onto the scene was moto 360 1st generation in 2014. The Moto 360 3rd Gen device, we are reviewing (Moto 360 3rd Gen REVIEW) was introduced in October 2019.
REVIEW: Moto 360 3rd Gen Design and build quality
It is a flashy watch. 3 rd generation moto 360 has a fully circular display and a pair of crown buttons on the side. This gives the watch a traditional look. This watch is dustproof and water-resistant. Made of stainless steel, it has a lovely premium finish with solid and weighty build quality. It comes in three colours- Rose gold, Steel grey, Phantom black. The watch straps are pretty nice as well. One is made of leather; other is silicon made. It has one GB ram, eight GB storage. You can store music to play during a phone-free workout.
Moto 360 3rd Gen Display:
This smartwatch has a good but not the best 1.2-inch AMOLED display. It is nice and bright. Easy to use in full sunlight. Reasonably placed bezels around the watch beat the flat tire. Its auto-brightness is also a bit dream because it’s easier to read in bright condition because of its any light display. Rest of the screen is dimly lit up when the always-on display is on. If you opt for a watch with a black background, you won’t notice too much because the pixels will turn off. On the AOD, they turn back for sometimes. Go with something brighter and coloured; it’s much more apparent.
Moto 360 3rd Gen Software and performance:
Its software is not good at all. It comes with wear OS.but it is not progressed enough AND is not good as IOS and not stable as one UI from Samsung. Moto 360 3rd Gen has NFC and mobile payments with google pay. It’s on wrist direction is superior to some people. In recent years, wear OS library of useful apps has arguably shrunk rather than expanded.
Moto 360 3rd gen battery life: REVIEW
The battery life of the smartwatch is not good. It hardly lasts more than one day. Any active use quickly shorts it’s lifespan. Fifty minutes of run tracking using this smartwatch GPS took around 25% off the battery. Tracking a 3hour work, it drained from 100%-23%. The worst thing about this watch is its charging system. It uses magnetic pins instead of QI wireless charging. The charging dock is also awkward to use.
Health and fitness features: moto 360 3rd gen
Moto 360 lacks an SPO2 sensor that measures the blood oxygen level. It also lacks sleep tracking. But, it equipped with an optical heart-rate sensor.
Moto360 3rdcgeneration is a nice watch. It is entirely different from other branded smartwatches. It’s wearing OS is nice and smooth, but not worth its high price. It is comfortable to wear, has good battery life and a decent range of features.
