Any chance for an addition of notification drawer drop down button in the navigation bar? I don't see it as a configurable option. That's the only feature I'm missing atm.

I've spent the better part of 3 WEEKS now trying to order a #moto360   stainless steel. +Motorola Mobility is failing on all fronts. From promises to return calls that were never done, to escalations that yield nothing.

It's like they just don't want to sell the product!

So +Macy's, +Walmart, and +Best Buy are opening at 6pm on Thanksgiving day...

If the goal is to grab the first dollar our of customer's pockets, you might as well start the sales on Wednesday and leave Thursday for people to have some semblance of a holiday.

Great Article  "The National Security Agency has some of the brightest minds working on its sophisticated surveillance programs, including its metadata collection efforts. But a new chat program designed by a middle-school dropout in his spare time may turn out to be one of the best solutions to thwart those efforts."

Whatever that update was that Moto pushed to my 360 yesterday definitely helped battery life, I was able to get 9 hrs out of 80% including the juice it took to update the OS and my apps.

Progress seems good so far. Let's see what today (Day 3) holds

Went back to LG based 4.4.2 to maximize my camera usage while in vacation. I actually think I'm going to stay here and not jump back to 5.0.1 as there are 2 things that I despise in lollipop.

1. Pop up notifications
2. Lockscreen notifications

So question...

In +Android​ 5.0 how do you change the ring/notification mode when connected via Bluetooth and streaming audio?

#1 reason I despise the notification handling on +Android​ 5.0 lollipop. This is exacerbated when sharing a video with coworkers; private messages aren't private if they pop up and linger on your screen.

Well....... This fixes how alarms and phone calls are handled which I appreciate. The regular notifications I can get why it'd be annoying

#Moto360  Review...

I've officially had my Moto360 for a week and I must say that I am absolutely hooked on Android wear and the design of the watch. The initial few days with the watch were quite frankly horrible and tough to get through with regards to battery life. I've surmised that this was due to my constant tapping and playing around with the watch to get it all configured. Once configured to my liking however, I was able to consistently get 14 hours out of the watch before I would toss it on the charger (typically with ~20% left). Keep in mind that this is with the ambient mode off; as I have found that the watch does a great job at waking up when I need it and to provide notifications.

This leads me to another "silent" benefit that I've not seen mentioned anywhere. I've come to the conclusion that I'm a notification ninja. I don't like to see any unattended items anywhere; I must either respond or clear it as soon as I see it. Because my Moto360 does such an excellent job with notifications, and more and more apps are being updated to support wear devices, I'm now checking my phone ALOT less. I am able to glance at my wrist to see what that new vibrate was and can choose to either swipe it away or perform basic actions on it. This leads to me activating my phone much less frequently, resulting in better battery life! I used to leave work with ~30%, now I leave with ~50%. Mathematically this is great! I've saved ~600mAH of battery on my phone by using ~200mAH on my watch.

With regards to my usage, I keep all sensors on, and everything on sync except Facebook (which notoriously drains my battery if I don't deep sleep it). So emails (from 3 accounts), calendar notifications, text, hangouts, calls, navigation, etcetera all appear on my watch.

This reminds me...my watch has also increased my consciousness of my fitness level. Since it tracks my steps, heart rate and activity level, I'm more aware of my shortcomings (as if my increasing gut wasn't enough evidence). As a result I've started focusing more on reaching heart activity goals and started exercising more regularly (3 out of 4 days thus far this week!) so I must say that the combination of a health band and the smart-watch works well.

If there's anything you guys want to know just let me know.

Day 4 11:44PM. I'm pretty satisfied with the break in thus far. I popped it off the charger at 9 this morning #Moto360

Nice. Things are getting better for sure. I don't think I have problem with charging it every night.
