It's like they just don't want to sell the product!
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.
Progress seems good so far. Let's see what today (Day 3) holds
1. Pop up notifications
2. Lockscreen notifications
In 5.0 how do you change the ring/notification mode when connected via Bluetooth and streaming audio?
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.
