It's not a 360, but I've just picked up an LG G Watch from the parallel imported store

First impressions are that it's not as ugly as I expected (I got the one with gold accents and white strap), but it'll be interesting to see if my wife agrees

NZtechfreak: Grabbed one yesterday from PB Tech. After starting to go through all the motions to order one from Google Play or Motorola a while ago, it sure was refreshing to just walk into a store and buy it. Pleased so far, but battery life will be key in next 24-48 hours. If it's looking good enough, then I might grab a Z3 Tablet Compact to use as my primary device with it and eschew a phone altogether.


Look forward to your battery feedback.

That's pretty much what I am getting too, maybe a little less but it's new and it gets a ton of use.
I am impressed how quickly it recharges, but it is a small battery. A 30 minute stint on any Qi certified wireless charging sytem will charge it up.

sony smartwatch 3 here

Mine is lasting all day from 5.30am - 9pm and still on about 50%.  This is with facebook/twitter/music work emails gmail etc on.
It charges via micro usb and takes less than an hour each night

I am very happy, only thing is i can't find a glass screen protector for it :( Currently has one of those plastic skins on it.

I've got a fitness app which maps, graphs everything and can use the heartrate data from the watch.  Would be interesting to see how much battery a 2hr workout will use.

Update on my wife's thoughts on the watch, the first thing she said is "That thing is so ugly" and then later scoffed at me saying "You need to charge your watch? Ha ha ha"

A large portion of the people I have met have been extremely interested in the Moto. People are amazed when I turn my wrist and check a text in a flash without wipping out my phone. 

It definitely isn't ready for the general population but people that have seen it on my wrist and have interacted with it, love it and love the look of it.

Looking at picking one of these watches up.

Do you guys think a screen protector is necessary?

Just got a steel strap put on from Mister Minit in Lynn Mall. Good thing was he'd done a couple moto's already so was up to speed with adjusting the metal band to fit better. Looks pretty sweet. $45.
