VERDICT AND RATING
If Motorola Mobility chose to use an industry best AMOLED screen, eliminated the “flat tire” screen issue while retaining an effective ambient sensor (which is easy to solve, by the way), fixed a few elementary ergonomic issues with the dual microphones, and rolls out more software integration and native apps, then this watch could have earned an 8.5 or higher rating.
As it is now, the Moto 360 2nd generation smartwatch earns a rating in this review of 8.0.
Rating of the Moto 360 2nd Generation Smartwatch:
- 8.0 on a 1 to 10 scale (10 = best)
