Default Moto 360: hands-on with one beautiful smartwatch [VIDEO]

We've finally been able to get our grubby little paws on the Moto 360 smartwatch. It's one of three of the first Android Wear smartwatches, and it's probably our favorite one yet.

Imho, it's also the prettiest so far. The aesthetics says "watch" instead of "tech gadget".

^^^that

I'd like to see it a bit thinner, but if I am wearing it on my wrist, it better look like a watch first.

They better still offer the metal band! The first pictures from a few months ago looked amazing.

I'm actually hoping they use a standard setup for the bands, that way you could just pick up a band anywhere, and in any style. Otherwise if it breaks you'd have to go online to get a replacement.

I agree that I would like to see it thinner. It looks like it really sticks off the wrist in some pictures. I tried a metal band on my Pebble watch and it was a disaster. The vibration that the watch did was no longer "silent". If a notification came through the whole room heard it. So I ended up ordering a 22mm band that had links in it but was rubber and black. Much better. It helps class the watch up a bit.

That has always been my problem with these watches looking too much like toys. I did not upgrade to the Pebble Steel but I did wonder if they had the same vibration problem that my Pebble had with a metal band.

I will see if the Moto 360 comes out soon with the metal band and if it has vibration problems. If there is an issue I will just get the LG G Watch and swap my rubber link band from my Pebble on it to make it look better. I think it would be harder finding a band to fit the round Moto 360 because the connection looks like it is in an awkward spot.
