Smart watches or smartwatches are high; the major brands of smartphones in recent months directed their efforts to take the pulse of users, but few have done so as Motorola and your Bike 360.
The highlight no wonder: he’s nice and round and is the closest to a traditional wristwatch, something critical to try to accept the idea that one day smartwatches can replace the accessory that became so iconic in our society.
And if the idea is to emulate a common clock, Motorola did very well. The Bike 360 is elegant, despite being too large and slightly disproportionate in relation to your bracelet. From what we’ve seen, he is more pleasing visually with a metal bracelet. But, the Unit received for testing was only the leather option.
On the wrist, he’s quite appealing, which may please some and dissatisfy others. He is big, bright and certainly the fact that you constantly keep stirring on a LCD minitela on your wrist must attract prying eyes.
But this is the Digital Look, a site about technology. The appearance is important, but what really interests us is whether it works or not. And here come some problems well boring.
Battery is the biggest flaw of the clock from Motorola. In our tests, it wont hold about 24 of hours without a recharge. For example: I left the Newsroom at 9:00 pm on a Friday with the Bike 360 on my wrist; I slept with him, I took a walk around town, used to create reminders and do searches and only really had to reload it on Saturday night.
It would be a good result for a smartphone, but we’re talking about a watch here, an accessory that normally takes years to require a “reload”, that when you don’t use solar energy to work indefinitely.
This is a problem almost impossible to be solved with existing technology today. When it comes to electronics, the smaller physically is a device, the lower the duration of your battery, simple as that. The fact that the Bike 360 still last a whole working day is even a done interesting, given the circumstances, but certainly not enough for a good user experience for a wristwatch. And this is a problem that is not restricted to Motorola, but basically any other smartwatch clock also passes by it, until the Apple Watch, which hasn’t even been released.
Motorola tries to resolve this limitation, with a wireless charger, which works as a kind of showroom for the clock. Works well and can charge the device in about 1 hour and a half, but then is raised another question: If the battery discharge in the middle of your day when you’re away from the charger, you blew it. No wristwatch and will have to take the phone out of your pocket to see what time it is, because the Bike 360 does not accept any other methods of recharging, with no entrance to Micro-USB cable.
Coming now to the issue of operation, there is a lot of criticism to be made. The unit is well done, and everything that he sets his mind performs very well hear voice commands for navigation, search or creating reminders, like a pedometer, as heart rate meter and even as a control that allows you to increase or decrease the volume of the songs that are playing on your phone, or skip to the next track. He is very diverse with respect to its functions and can not help but feel in a James Bond movie to give voice commands to your wristwatch.
It uses Android, the Google system Wear for smart watches. Other than the Android for mobile phones, the company maintains a strict control over what the manufacturers can and cannot do with your software, which means that the smartwatches are, in your soul, a Google product and they still offer a similar experience.
There’s a little problem, however: see the hours it can be counterintuitive sometimes. The clock uses motion sensors to understand when the user is looking for the screen; the display lights up when you realize that, otherwise it remains black. The issue is that it takes a very specific movement for this work; otherwise, you may be looking at a black screen. It’s even worse when you’re lying, because the sensors are “crazy”.
Motorola did what it had to do with the Bike 360: did a nice device, and it works well as a geek toy, and using it is quite fun but unfortunately the battery technologies are still very late, which makes the product unable to replace the traditional wristwatch.
The appliance still coming up in the very concept of the smartwatch defined by militarynous. After all, what good is a smart watch? Until today, we have not found any functionality that really justifies the need to have one of these devices. The existence of this category of products until today boils down to “too lazy to take the phone out of your pocket to check notifications or perform actions”. It’s just that there is a device of the type, but has no laziness worth the 800 R$ the product in Brazil and, honestly, even the $200 charged in the United States.
