Article: Latest Moto 360 update dramatically improves battery life
I can tell you why it has poor battery life; because there is not ring for the notification the Moto 360 only vibrates. We all know the vibrating eats up the battery. I turned off the vibration, left ambient light on, and I was getting 20hrs a day, 40 with the update. Turn them both off and you get almost 48hrs on a single charge.
I ended up returning my Moto 360 due to one feature no reviewer bothered to tell us. That is the fact that you can't take a call on the watch like I did on the Samsung galaxy Gear. You can only except an incoming call so you can pic up your phone. That was a feature I really used. Hopefully gen 2 will have this capability. Until then, going with the Gear S
Well, if you can't take a call on the watch (I agree that is a great feature on the Galaxy Gear and Neo) then it's useless, almost. I enjoyed, especially in the car while driving, receiving and making calls. I actually made fun of a cop that couldn't figure out what I was speaking into.
Typically (that's my say) there's always something missing with another Motorola product. They never seem to get everything done properly.

That one feature put the Moto 360 on my disappointment list. Sad to let it go, but I had too.
