    We expected to see minimal keyboards such as Minuum for smart watches with square dsplays, but what about smartwatches like the Moto 360 that has a circular display? Thankfully you guys have not been forgotten.

    The more I hear of the Moto 360, the happier I am that I didn't get impatient and buy the Gear or G watches.

    It does look ridiculously huge. I have tiny girly wrists, being a girl and all, and that would look just too ridiculous, being ridiculously huge and all :rolleyes:

    Qi wireless charging is one of the big reasons the 360 is still likely my watch of choice, over the G Watch R.

    I received my Moto 360 metal band today. I was elated like a school girl. After the lady at Zales put on the band I thought that the band looked amazing for the $80 I paid for it. Glad I was patient and waited for an official band.

    I was wondering, if the OEM watch band doesn't fit (I have big wrists), can I just use a watch band from another 23mm watch? Would it fit? Do I need any adaptors? Does Moto offer additional watch links for free or sale? My watch should arrive on Wed.

    Appreciate the help!!

    I have the metal version of the band, the watch came with a nice sized band (I did not need to adjust it at all - and I do not have dainty wrists) and I believe 4 extra links. I think you'll be good. If not I am certain Moto would be happy to sell you additional links, just give em a ring.

    I did/do need a few links which Motorola was able to provide. Putting them on today.

    Thank you!!

    I currently picked up one of the $5 pucks and a 3k/mah (motoroloas oddly enough, not that it mattered who made it, it was $9 on ebay) and going to try that as a cheap emergency solution. The puck already came and it was one of the new versions that don't beep. It worked although it did seem to have an on/off issue one time at full charge (i am testing using a chord atm, the battery is not here yet). It does seem to charge pretty slow on the puck but that may just be because the leather strap makes it hard for it to lay flat, there was always a gap under one side.

    It may be worth it to combine a battery charger with another moto 360 dock.

    Edit: So the battery pack arrived today. This is what I got "http://www.ebay.com/itm/141644560432". Again I didn't get it because it was made by motorola, it just happened to be cheap and had the micro usb connection built in while holding more then enough charge to recharge the 320maH battery in the watch.

    The QI puck I got was "http://www.ebay.com/itm/311337523482".

    Unfortunatly the puck was very moody. When I hooked up the mostly charged battery pack too it and laid the watch flat on it, it charged the watch quickly from %60 to %86. However it then proceeded to stop charging with a red light (which means it is ready to connect with a device).. it would start charging for a second and then shut down (The battery pack has a soft on/off mode). After being unable to get it to charge over %86 I plugged the battery into the moto 360 station and it has no problem.

    This could be because the QI puck requires 1.5amps and the battery is rated 1.0, but a lot of batteries are rated 1a and it seems like a damn nice one, so I think I am going to pick up an extra cradle for portable use and bin this puck.

    Look what I found, guys! For those of you that wanted to buy an extra charger for your moto 360, but didn't want to pay the retail cost, this might be a good option for you. I've purchased many things from Sunsky in the past and all of them come exactly as advertised. Might take some time for shipping, but the price difference can be very big. In this case, it's definitely true:

    Discovered this, completely by accident, while searching for a docking station that could house my 360, phone, and tablet, when at home.

    When I did a search for "Moto 360 Docking Station" on Amazon, I came across these small docking stations:
    http://www.amazon.com/Happy-Hours-W...3138&sr=1-1&keywords=moto+360+docking+station

    I looked at the description that said it's "compatible with the Moto 360", but couldn't make sense of how the Moto 360 charger could fit in the space that houses the charger, so I did a little more digging on youtube and came across this video:


    Upon watching that video, I immediately started looking into the vast amount of docks available for the Apple watch and other devices and took a plunge on buying these two (I went with these different vendors due to a combination of Price and Prime shipping):
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01100DTTM?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010FMEXEG?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

    There are also smaller versions of the docks I purchased, that only house a phone and watch. And there are a lot of different vendors that sell the same dock. Here is one, just to get an idea:
    http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Charg...e+watch+wood+dock&refinements=p_85:2470955011

    Lastly, I purchased the 1m (3 foot) apple watch charger at Best Buy and the Apple store (For some reason, Best Buy has a 1 item limit on purchasing these). The longer charging cable is same price as the Moto 360 charger. But, best part is I confirmed what the video showed above.
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-a...hite/4276800.p?id=1219733906881&skuId=4276800

    I know most folks were satisfied with the small disc charger for very cheap, but I wanted to clean up my home charging area a 'bit, as well as find a way to display the moto 360 a little better. If I have a chance, I'll take some follow up pics, so you can see how the dock works in conjunction with the 360. The Apple charger charged up my moto 360, while at work, just like the OEM charger does, so that part alone is confirmed. I just hope that the angle the watch is propped, on the dock, will identify the charge too.
