In terms of design, Motorola said that they had to go back in time in order to reinvent the modern day time piece.

Design – Retro Style

The Moto 360 is already available in some parts of the world, like the US and UK. It’s a really stylish, sleek looking piece of hardware (even better looking than LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live). And in case of this watch, fashion comes before the function. The first noticeable thing about the watch is the retro-style circular design with a leather strap. Moto 360 looks more like an actual watch than a piece of Android gear, mainly due to its circular shape. All the components are housed in a stainless steel housing, while the leather strap is made of premium quality leather. It’s the lightest of Android Wear watches weighing only 49 grams. It comes in three different colors – black, dark gray and light gray – and the straps are replaceable. Diameter is 46 mm, while the thickness is 11.5 mm, so it’s a matter of preference when it comes to the discussions that are led over the past few weeks regarding Moto 360’s size.

Display – Is a Perfect Circle Really That Important?

The display resolution is 320×290 that results in 205 ppi, protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Ambient light sensor that adjusts the brightness is something that’s unique to this watch. We don’t know why they didn’t, but Samsung could’ve easily incorporated this in their own watch considering they use auto-brightness adjustment sensors on their smartphone devices. There is a black slice at the bottom that’s ruining the circular shape a bit and it houses display drivers and the ambient light sensor, however, the experience is far from ruined.

In the end, everything is a matter of preference. Whether you’ll be bothered by its size, or the fact that the perfect circle is somewhat ruined with the black slice at the bottom, is completely up to you.
