I'm thinking it will come alongside the updates to the nexus devices. I'm figuring since wear is just a branch of android it will probably just be 5.0w like our current build is 4.4w1

Using a 2013 Moto X and Moto 360. In Google Settings it lists Google Fit and inside seems like it is supposed to list fit devices connected with my Google profile. Is anyone seeing your wear device listed here?

I find it amazing that Google isn't synchronizing the fit data from the watches yet (I've reset my 360 twice and lost step history both times).

Beautiful app. Love the look. Great work.

That being said, I have a few comments...

- I tried to edit all occurrences of a recurring event, and though it did change it, when I accepted the edit, it crashed the program.
- Is there an option to not have 24 hour time for events in the Agenda Widget?
- I re-sized the agenda widget to a 3 x 3 size and the date is cut off after, "Monday, September". It would be nice to have the option to have a short or abbreviated date display at the top of the widget.

Just tried again, and no crash. Sorry, should have done that before reporting. Thanks for the quick reply.

Has anyone heard anything about the wristband on the Moto 360? Just curious is switching out the band is something we'll be able to do later on. Also, one of the other smart watches mentioned that they use a standard size so that you could buy your own band. That seems like a good practice with smart watches.

The band goes deeper in the watch than on other watches.

It should work for simple leather or plastic watch bands, but with normal metal bands you could get into trouble.

Has any information been shared on +Motorola Mobility 's September 4th event? Times? Wondering if a live feed or blog will be available to 'watch'. Mostly interested in finding out when my #YOFORMOTO#moto360  might ship. :-)  +Punit Soni

I'm confused on the notification changes on the latest 360 update. 

The way it sounded from the blog post, was that a notificaiton would come in, as normal, but if I wanted to have my watch face back, I would swipe down on the small banner (on my watch face). 

All my notifications take over the whole screen for several seconds, like before, but then go away entirely. I can swipe up from the bottom to see them, but with media playing, in particular, having it stay on the watch face screen was nice.

Is this the functionality everyone else is seeing?

Factory resetting the watch seems to have fixed it. However, now I have the stupid "OK Google" that floats over my Facer face for a couple seconds eevrytime I wake up the watch. That should be optional.

Now's the time to get in with the Motorola Feedback Network, if you're not already. If you are in already, make sure to verify your info, if you haven't been part of a "soak" before. You may get a taste of Lollipop before everyone else.

I have a recurrent issue with my Parking Location card in +Google Now. The pin is accurate, but it identifies an address on the other side of the interstate, not in the identified circle. Why would it not select an address on either of the roads that ARE within the circle. Any thoughts? Also, my designated "Work" in +Google Maps is within the circle. It would be nice to integrate these 2 things and be told I parked at 'Work".  +Android   #googlenow   #motox  +Motorola Mobility +Punit Soni
