    Wanting to purchase an Android Wear device and having a hard time making up my mind. The Moto does have the looks and wireless charging but at a larger price. In terms of functionality, which has the upper hand? Can I get opinions, advice?
    Thanks man.

    I had the G Watch for a week and returned it for the 360. There wasn't anything wrong with the G Watch, I just felt the 360 was more aesthetically pleasing. And it was, however I've come to discover that the Moto 360 really is the embodiment of the old saying "beauty is only skin deep". Ridiculously bad battery life, lags in apps and even UI scrolling, there are also less apps that natively support round faces (won't be a problem in a few months but right now Wear apps in general are already very limited). You couple that with a defective unit (mine has 2 stuck pixels) and a 70 dollar more price tag...Well, there's the Moto 360. In terms of advantages it has over the G Watch - there's the look, you can't argue that, and an extra heart rate monitor, that's it.

    Also, the screen resolution on LG g watch is better. I was surprised how the screen was on the 360. Sometimes when I download a watch, it looks beautiful on my phone, but when I load it, doesn't look that great due to low resolution. I guess we are spoiled by super sharp 1080p screens. Just wish the 360 came with atleast 240ppi. But this is only an issue if you look for it.

    I only have the the 360, but battery life for me has been fine (20 hours). The qi charging is a big plus, just drop it on the charger, no fiddling, no de-taching when you pick it up (and works on all qi chargers).
    I agree the "jumpy" lags are annoying.
    Resolution still looks great at normal viewing, people all ooh and ah over how great the screen looks (even snooty "retina" mac people).

    I took my LG G Watch back on Friday after 2 weeks, waiting for the 360 (i'm in the UK). It felt too cheap like a toy.

    I'm happy with my g watch... Obviously the 360 looks nicer, if that's important to you, the choice should be obvious.

    I'm actually more concerned about how they perform. I hear resolution is better on the G. Battery life is better. And a lower price tag. Would not have those nice leather straps, but I could buy them.

    Posted with my MotoX, no case needed.

    In fact, you will likely have a greater choice of replacement straps with the g watch due to the finicky placement of the pins on the 360...

    Another 360 pro: screen is readable (enough) in the sun.

    I only run into lag issues with certain apps or watch faces. One of my watch faces for example caused the rest of the watch to be laggy.

    I had debated back and forth for about 2 weeks and ended up with the G Watch. I just like it better with square face and not having that black bar at the bottom like the 360.

    I finally went and checked out both watches at Best Buy. I am going to have to go with the grey or stone leather banded 360. It is actually smaller than my Casio Protrek watch I currently wear. I just wish the 360 was solar powered too. There wasnt any in stock at the Best Buy so I am waiting to hear from Motorola on next availability. I've looked on eBay but i'd rather wait than pay more.
    I even got a thumbs up from the wife and she could give a sh!t.
