Ars Technica’s Moto 360 Review

Ron Amadeo reviews the Moto 360, complete with benchmarks comparing it with the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live.

The Moto 360 is a big step forward for smartwatches, but it’s still not the excellent hardware we’re looking for. There’s a great design here, but it’s marred by a power-hungry processor that can’t keep up with Android Wear. The battery life and performance is a deal breaker. For a “convenience” product that is supposed to be all about fast access, having it be slow or dead really defeats what little purpose a smartwatch has.

It’s disappointing to see a watch that was so hyped fail so miserably at basics.
