    Moto 360 isn't getting Android L, just some added features to enhance Android wear.





    This is the part that mentions Android L

    Android smart watches run off Android Wear, it is a separate OS.

    Fell asleep with my watch on last night, woke up at 330am and it was still at 31% That made it 19 hours and I got it back on the charger at 20 hours with 29% remaining.

    I'm going to keep an eye on the battery today, to see if it adds up the same way.

    I'm at 10 hours off of the charger and at 79%. It's been a light day, I actually took a nap, haha, but even still, that is remarkable battery life. My battery life was excellent before the update but is phenomenal now.

    I wonder how much different battery life would be if they gave us the option to disable the heart rate monitor? If you never noticed, look at the back of the watch and every 5 minutes you can see it turn on. The ability to disable it is my biggest want.

    Sounds like that might be in the works.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but in reference to battery life after update...

    Approaching 24 hours off of the charger and I'm at 48% left. Not going to charge this morning like usual just to see how far I can get.

    This should be a no brainier option Motorola should implement.

    My Moto 360 is still in transit, and I expect it to be on my wrist week after next since I'm overseas.

    I understand that the heart rate monitor cannot be deactivated. Is it the same way with the step counter? That's one other functionality that should be user selectable.

    I've been using a Qualcomm Toq for eight months now and I enjoy phenomenal battery endurance of a week if I turn it off at night. The step counter in the Toq can be toggled on or off.

    I actually like the step counter. It gives my lazy butt a sense of accomplishment to know that I've done some tiny form of exercise throughout the day, but I agree, it should be an option, not mandatory.

    Same for the heart sensor.

    I don't think the 360 will get close to the Toq battery life, but it should make it through 24 hours, with the new update, but if you're hoping to achieve the same lifespan as the Toq, I think you'll be disappointed.

    I'd say the battery life now would be similar to what I was experiencing with the first Gear. I wasn't having as bad of battery drain on that watch, as many others were, but the complaints of the 360 battery drain reminded me of the 1st Gear. That said, charge time was 10X's faster and I can charge at work, if I ever forget (just need an extra qi wireless charger).

    31+ hours and at 26% right now.

    I can't be sure if the battery is just conditioned now, the update has helped a lot, or if I am a pretty light user.

    Sure, I'm not navigating all day long, but I am getting texts and emails, a few calls and messing around with the faces all day long...for almost a day and a half now. It's probably a combination of all 3, but whatever. The results speak for themselves.

    Nice! Depending on how my battery is at the end of the day today, I may try leaving it off the charger over night, just to see how it responds.

    As of right now, I'm at 82% after 5 hours off charger. Not bad considering how many emails/texts/notifications get pushed to my phone constantly, throughout the day.

    I'm on 8 hours and at 50% but I'd say I pounded it today with faces, texts, emails and I also played with Pixtocam quite a bit. That's a battery hog.

    I left my girlfriend's house around 6 pm and I took my watch off the charger. I think it was at 98%. I left my watch off the charger last night and grabbed the watch around 1:30 pm today with 58%. I did have my phone in always on mode yesterday too for awhile. Additionally, when I was driving home from my girlfriends house yesterday I was texting her via voice from my watch.

    I'm almost at 26 hours and 24% left, without charging and still connected to the phone all night. I'm happy. That said, I'll likely still charge every night, but glad to know that it'll last that long, under heavy usage and lots of pushed notifications.

    There is an update in Play. So far I know it lets you read the whole email in the default email app. It used to only show a snippet.

    Go update 😊

    Wow I just got an update to KNX01S. I have an option to put music on the watch. It didn't tell me how to use it though LOL.

    Edit: LOL... corrected the version number I had incorrect and just noticed.

    Awesome! Just finishing update install right now. I blocked all my music apps, just to remove that notification. Hopefully, this does the trick. Didn't really care for the stock notification that was forced to block the clock and not as functional as music boss app.

    Here are the patch notes. Goggle Play has a check box in Settings now to add downloaded music to the watch but nothing seemed to happen so I unchecked it. I was able to pair the watch directly to my wireless headphones.

    https://forums.motorola.com/posts/50a82d847b

    Edit: The one thing that concerns me is this:

    > Moto 360 will synchronize the time with your phone more often to make sure it is up to the minute.

    I hope that doesn't mean battery life will suffer if it's polling the phone more frequently.

    The "hide without dismissing" thing for cards is awesome.

    The added music controls are cool. Skip forward, back and volume up and down.

    VERY disappointed that there is not a "heart monitor off" option. Hopefully still to come.

    The "enhanced dim" function to my eyes had no effect. I don't want it to dim, I want it to turn off without me having to do the work around every night before I go to bed.

    Wait, so does that mean it can function as a stand alone mp3 player? Does the watch have enough storage space to even hold enough mp3's?

    Still no way to make the face stay on just a smidgen longer yet, huh? Not the end of the world, I just like to gaze at its beauty while it's on. :)

    Yeah... if memory serves from the spec sheet it has 4 gigs. It will be a stand alone MP3 player, but obviously it will require a BT device to play through.

    When I checked the "Download music to Android Wear Device" button in Google Play I got a popup card on the watch that said it was DLing music but it stayed on 53 songs and never went down. I got bored of waiting and unchecked it.

    I wish you could change the time out! Once the programming environment is released we'll probably see things like that.
