Moto 360 receives update, improved UI and better Battery Life

Moto 360 is the first smartwatch from Motorola which runs Android wear. The device was announced in India and went on sale early this month. Motorola has been continuously fixing issues with the device and had rolled out an update back in September. Now the company has released a new Wear update for Moto 360 which brings in revamped UI and also better battery life which was probably one of the biggest concerns about the watch.

Here is the complete change log of the update.

  • Smart Battery Saving – When your battery hits 15%, your Moto 360 will turn off ambient mode, so you don’t have to remember to.
  • Timely Time Checks – Moto 360 will synchronize the time with your phone more often to make sure it is up to the minute.
  • User Interface Tweaks – We observed with consumers that there are many times where you want to use your Moto 360 as truly a classic watch—a beautiful way to see the time. A new gesture now lets you see the full watch face without permanently dismissing a notification. Just touch the top of a notification and swipe down. You’ll see the notification again when you have another high priority notification.
  • Mood Lighting – Moto 360 will adjust to the lighting of the room while charging, so that it isn’t too bright or too dark.
  • Readying the wires for Bluetooth – There are a couple of under-the-hood enhancements that will pave the way for connecting Bluetooth headsets to the watch.
  • Bug Squashing – As usual, bugs are squashed to enhance the overall user experience.

The update will be rolled out in phases. Look for the update notification on your watch and you will be prompted to install. To install the update, make sure that you’re connected to your phone with an internet connection and that your watch has at least 80% battery.
