    Default Asus Zen Watch - May have to rethink the Moto 360

    This really looks good for a non-round watch. I think Motorola missed the boat when the 360 was not released after Google I/O. I was excited for it, back then, and would have bought one had it been released. But since it took so long, others have stepped up to the plate. We've got the G Watch R to consider as well. Big misstep on Motorola, IMHO.

    You might be right on the misstep. The Asus does look nice.

    Still excited for the 360, but the ZenWatch is very tempting. But we don't know when asus will launch it, we could wait another 6 months for it!

    Now there's the LG G Watch R. Looks more like my Kennith Cole watch. Not concerned about the light sensor. I always disable the light sensor on my phones as they always seem to struggle to pick a brightness.

    It's great to get more choices.

    I'm thinking I will end up with both the Moto and Asus watch.

    If Asus can get this out and hit that $200 us price point I think they will sell a lot but I'm going with the 360

    Moto 360 runtime is approx. 12 hours? Not really thrilled about this. May just wait until next generation. As much as I love bleeding edge, these watches feel underwhelming. I do like the 360 for the clean "roundness" and the wireless charging, though. Zenwatch is the best looking non-round, but needs to be plugged in to charge. These are definitely WIPs. And still need to see what Apple does.

    Ars has an interesting article on the 360 internals. No way I'm getting that. Now waiting to see what Apple or Asus does.

    Moto for me as always been about the looks. I never expected great runtime. In the end of the day if it can't do 48 hours then I can't use it as an alarm clock so it's annoying. This is something I came to terms with for the moto, it's my style watch.

    Asus need to nail runtime somehow, but honestly I don't think that will happen until a new battery Tech comes out. Hopefully someone brings out a mirasol display!

    Yeah I have one, that's why I like it. A wear watch with mirasol would be awesome.

    You know, I was all set to buy the Moto 360. The way they went about finally releasing it though has completely turned me off. I still think it is the best looking smart watch even compared to the unreleased Apple Watch. But with the battery life being sub-par on the 360 and the really, really old processor is making me second guess myself, and I'm glad I did. Between the specs and just flat out unable to find one anywhere has given me enough time to realize I need to wait. This waiting led me into looking more into the ZenWatch. I absolutely love the light brown band. And the body itself looks elegant. I will wait to pass judgement on this when it is released and we can see the battery life on it. The one thing I am hoping Asus was able to do that Motorola wasn't, was the ability to have the actual watch "on" all the time. As much as I love the 360, I do not want to buy a watch where the actual clock isn't even on and can last a whole day.

    I have owned a gear 1 and it had the flick to turn on. It annoyed me for about a day and then it just felt natural. The 360 can last a day as well, a new update has helped the battery life heaps.

    I have a Sony SW2, Motorola 360 and a Zen watch. My Zen watch is BY FAR the better watch of the three. Style, battery life and simplicity.

    Don't bother with anything else available noe. It's Asus Zen Watch that's your best bet. BB for $199 is a great deal.

    Just got 4 days on a charge, and still had 8% left when I put it on the charger. It was over the weekend, so had fewer notifications.
