We already showed you the six custom watch faces that Motorola pre-installed on the Moto 360, but you might not know that you can further customize them using the Motorola Connect app. This app was only available for the Moto X and DROID devices, but they have opened it up to other Android devices since not everyone with a Moto 360 will own a Motorola phone.
Assuming your Moto 360 is already paired to your phone using the Android Wear app, just open the Connect app and you will immediately see your 360 displayed on the screen. Tap on that, and you will be given a few options. Just tap on “Watch Faces” and you will be able to select any of the pre-installed faces to customize. Right now the options are a little more limited than I would like, but I assume Motorola will update the app down the road.
Just like any other Android Wear smartwatch, Motorola has pre-installed their own custom watch faces. Surprisingly, they only included 6 faces, but they all look pretty good. They included Minimal, Dials, Classic, Rotate, Digital, and Retrograde. They also included one other simple watch face that is found on both the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live.
All of the Motorola watch faces can be customized using the Motorola Connect app, click here for instructions on how.
Hit the break for images of each watch face along with a video showing each one of them as well.
Before the Moto 360 was officially introduced, you heard a lot of rumblings about an “ambient light sensor,” which would allow the display to automatically set the brightness based on how bright (or dark) your surrounds are. The Moto 360 also includes an “Ambient Screen,” option in the settings which you won’t find on the LG G Watch or the Gear Live and has confused a lot people.
There are about 3 or 4 weeks out of the year when it’s absolutely crazy and this past week was one of them. With IFA going on, most manufacturers had something new to announce. We had major announcements from Samsung, Sony, Motorola, ASUS, HTC, and Huawei among others. The Galaxy Note 4 seems to be another killer, but is the real game changer the Galaxy Note Edge? Sony went completely waterproof, but will consumers care? Motorola updated the Moto X and Moto G and they announced the most anticipated device of the year, the Moto 360 smartwatch. Will it live up to the hype? This is just the tip of the iceberg folks. It’s time to get caught up and get ready for what is sure to be another busy week in the Android world.

Google changed things up this year by giving us a preview of the next big version of Android. However, they didn’t name the damn thing. It’s simply Android L. Will that be the name or will tradition remain in place with the “L” being a tasty dessert such as Lollipop or Licorice? All signs seem to point towards Lemon Meringue Pie, but we won’t know for sure until a statue is put out in front of the Googleplex.
The Moto 360 is finally here folks. You can buy it starting today at noon at Motorola.com, Best Buy, and Google Play for $249. I have already spent a good amount of time with it, and trust me, this is a solid watch. Hit the break for our hands on video showing you all the features of what might be the smartwatch of the year.
Last year’s Moto G was the best selling smartphone for Motorola. Now 10 months later, they are already improving the device. With a bigger display, stereo sound, better camera, removable storage, and new software, the all new Moto G can still be had for the same price as before. $179 off contract is an absolute bargain, and you can buy it starting today at Motorola.com. Hit the break for our quick hands on video highlighting this great phone.
The Moto X for 2014 is new and improved with a larger display, better camera, and a refined software experience. It will be available later this month for $99 or $499 off contract. We will be posting our full review in the coming days, but for now, hit the break to check out our hands on video highlighting all the great features of the all new and improved Moto X.
Bluetooth headsets work well in general, but they are still clunky. Well here comes Moto Hint to solve that problem. It’s so small and discreet, you almost don’t know it’s there. It fits in your ear comfortably with no bulk.
What’s even cooler is that it will work in conjunction with Moto Voice on the Moto X. So you can easily respond to texts or even find out who won that big game without whipping out your phone. Of course, you can still use it with any other smartphone sans those capabilities.
