    I just bought a Moto 360 watch, and love it so far. But as a earlier Pebble user, I have some questions I would love to find answers to.

    The first question is the ability to map the side button (crown). When I drive my car, I plug my phone into the stereo and uses my smartwatch to swich to the next song. On a Pebble that was quite easy, and I didn't event need to look at the watch, I just press one of the side buttons. On my Moto 360, I'll have to wake the screen, swipe left and hit the next button on the screen (easier said than done). That is potensially dangerous when I drive. Is there any way to map the side button to switch to the next song by double press it (or triple press it) or something? That would be an awsome feature.

    Number two; The "tilt to wake" function is terrible. Doesn't work half of the time. Pebble had a very good solution with "shake to wake". Is there any way to turn on a similar feature?

    Unless there's a program in the app store that lets you map a playback function to the side button, I'm pretty sure you're out of luck on point one.

    Some people seem to have better luck with tilt to wake than others, but if you're willing to shake your wrist anyway, doesn't that wake your watch? It definitely would mine if I were already holding in front of my face to look at the time. You can also enable the ambient feature, which makes the tilt feature much more sensitive, but I don't personally like that feature -- however, others do, and perhaps it's for you.

    Thank you for your answer!
    No, the tilt to wake-function doesn't work when I shake the watch, utfortunately.

    I don't know if Google has opened the API to map functions to buttons, but I hope that will happen in the future.
