Last night my 1st-gen Moto 360 suddenly turned useless on me. I noticed it had died on my wrist which seemed odd, but hardly out of character for it. I let it sit on the charger for a few hours and when I checked on it I noticed it was at 1% and constantly cycling in and out of "Android Wear has Stopped" messages. After rebooting it it was no better, still not charging, still crashing. I did a factory reset and re-paired it, which seemed to resolve the issues, but it drained excessively fast after doing so; more so than is typical from the process of installing apps. Since then, after a few new charge, it's been disconnecting constantly, and Android Wear and Google Play Services are frequently crashing.

Considering I already did an Unpair/Factory Reset, is there anything else I'm not thinking of before I declare this thing a loss?

Update: didn't help. Eventually, though, I fully uninstalled the app, unpaired the watch, reinstalled the app, and set everything up again from scratch. Now it's back to normal.

Thinking of porting my Google Voice number back to my carrier. It's becoming increasingly clear that Google it's a relatively-ignored feature for Google overall. With their efforts to move away from Hangouts, which is where it lives, the lack of support for voice commands to send texts with it, and more features seemingly relying on built-in SMS over Voice, I just no longer feel good about its viability.

Anyone else done this and have feedback on the impact to them?

Sad. It was so promising. Now it's relegated to very specific, limited uses for me.

I'm having some serious charging speed consistency issues with my 5X. I've had it less than a week, and no matter what charger I use, including the stock charger, I can get anywhere from discharging at 700+mA to charging at 2000mA, often within the same charge. Sometimes unplugging and replugging improves it, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it charges nice and quickly, sometimes it's clearly getting nowhere over an extended time period.

Any tips?

The more I read, the less sure of that I am. Major XDA thread, among others, that indicates that thing thing throttles early and hard on the charging speed. The temperature DOES appear to be over 38c pretty much every time it charges slowly, which is constantly. So unless it's defective in that it gets hot too fast, this may be "normal."

Anyone else having trouble maintaining a connection to Android Wear on the dev preview? Mine is disconnecting constantly. Not sure if it's worth it to wipe (I did the OTA from Marshmallow) or if this is a common issue.

Turned out to be bigger Bluetooth issues. Happened any time connected to my headset or car, and music playback would constantly flail. Gave up and went back to Marshmallow for now.

Yep. All I see.
 
Wait... is that not what this is?

Honestly, it looks like the rising or setting sun to me. Those look like their tiny arms, not table legs.

Really bang-up job there, Samsung. Declining a feature that's not vital to the system's functionality shouldn't be this hard.

+Android Police should take interest in this.

Nice overall aesthetic. Despite being a chain, BJ's food is always pretty top notch, and this location was no exception.

Super tasty and quick, and easily the most affordable lunch spot on the block.

Pretty standard mall, but nice aesthetic, MASSIVE food court, decent parking, and tons of Pokéstops.

Nice, cozy venue with tons of small indie shows. Great spot for improv performances. Biggest downside is it gets SUPER hot and the tiny wall AC unit is too noisy to use during shows, not to mention sits right on the stage.

Standard Baskin Robbins, but that means great ice cream variety as always.

I love this place. Simple, quick, and GREAT lunch specials. I try to make a point of eating here when I'm in the area.

It's a Walmart. It's everything you expect included huge crowds, warehouse-like aesthetic, huge selection, busy employees, and slow checkouts. I only shop here if I don't have a better option.
