    Google should either put a button to tell the watch you are finished
    dictating, or a trigger phrase like “text ready” or something like that.
    Otherwise it’s not smart enough.

    I find the functionality still very underwhelming

    people are sending emails from their watches? good grief.

    I’m gonna set up a filter on my gmail that routes any email written on a
    smartwatch directly into the trash. as far as im concerned no email written
    on a smartwatch will ever be worth reading

    Until I can make calls without it being connected to a smartphone, I’ll
    pass.

    Android Wear looks really interesting. I am impressed how well Google
    executed it in the first try. Wish the hardware manufacturers release smart
    watches with stronger batteries as I already have a hard time charging my
    phone let alone charging my smart watch every few hours.

    Apple is trying to take on Google, a company that’s been coding for years,
    and are still alittle better then Microsoft, But then again, Nooo one knows
    what Apple shall do, so really without any arguments we can say as of now
    Google rains over anyone in terms of smart watches, But before I get
    anything, im waiting for Microsoft and Apple to atleast see what they do
    first. and Android has cool designs and all, but they need to work along
    the people who use theyre software which is sooo laggy on anything else, so
    google, start making your own stuff ;-; and the whole smart watch idea,
    needs a wow factor, for anyone to get, its literally another google glass
    thing.

    I have lg g watch r and I always keep my watch face all time(Always screen
    on option).
    And my watch last longer than my phone so problem with battery.
    And Yes you are correct. Why to make screen bright if screen is always on.
    I will make it brighter when i need by tapping screen. I put real watch
    like face in always on mode and I can see time as Normal watch. For more I
    will touch my screen. I hate when screen get brighter when moving hand here
    and there and I get interrupted from my work(work i would be doing at that
    moment) and look to watch thinking what happen. Auto wake up is just
    distraction for me.

    Also does anyone one know whether g watch r have always listening mode like
    in moto x(i think moto 360 also has). If have how to activate. I didn’t
    see anywhere.

    For my usage I could barely see a difference. I do everything by voice.

    I just don’t get the point. Moto 360 is on average getting 8 hours battery
    life only and that swiping through notifications seems annoying and takes
    so much time. At this points it’s just an accessory.

    What’s the likelyhood of a really awesome looking (better than 360) Android
    Wear watch coming out soon? (CES etc.)

    Lollipop update on my G Watch improved/fixed lots of things. Fixed lag
    through card swiping, but added it in the settings menu. Even Better
    battery life too.

    Quick Question for G Watch R owners: is your sleep/wake button mooshy or
    clicky?

    Double tapping the power button also toggles theater mode BTW.

    I just don’t understand why the scroll/page/card indicators (the little
    bubbles showing what page you’re on) are still KitKat style

    One thing to point out is sunlight mode isn’t available on the sw3 I assume
    due to it already being good in sunlight because of the transflective
    screen

    IS the Moto 360 actually as laggy as it is in this video?

    So really nothing new, just a lower battery life.

    I still haven’t gotten the update. Is it rolling out slowly or do you need
    to have Android Lollipop on your phone in order to get the update on your
    Moto 360?

    noticed battery life a lot lower than before though.

    That black bar at the bottom and the nasty cheap band ruin the moto.
