How better to prepare for the weekend than a punchy technical demo exploring video playback capabilities of browsers?  Hope you enjoy this one, we did.  Also, there is nerd text describing some of our findings. :-)

I have had some time now with first the LG G Watch R and then the Moto360, and I must say that I think they really both do fit their names.  The LG G Watch R seems to be designed by engineers who flunked design classes if they ever showed up at any.  It has got some real beauty on the inside and is much nicer than the Moto360 on paper.  The better CPU, twice the battery, OLED for always-on display and the pulse sensor actually seems to work. It can have the display on all day, and yet have more than 50% battery left when I go to bed. And yet, it's the "LG G Watch R", a name as sexy as the watch itself.  When you open the (square, easily packaged) box and start it up, the first thing you are likely to do is to try the different watch faces.  Then, you will start looking for watch faces online. Because they are ugly.  Not horrid, but they are just not nice.  The watch is huge, the "leather" band feels like cardboard and the screen is surprisingly small (but of course, 100% round) and slightly lost in all the plastic.

The Moto360 on the other hand, has got the internals of ancient Rome.  It lags, and it devours the battery as if it was hooked up to a car battery. The screen is LED, and if you don't have ambient mode on you will pretty much never be able to see what time it is due to it being perfectly black and dog slow to turn on.  Yet, the box is round and smooth, the leather is actually very nice (I replaced it with a  metal band, but still).  And when you start it, you can only marvel at the design work that went into it.  The 360. Everything is so nice and round (except the screen, which has the flat tire at the bottom).  The watch faces are really designed for round, some even exploiting the angled glass edge for a wonderful 3D effect.  If you keep switching watch faces, it's likely because you can't decide which is more gorgeous.  The customization is simple, choose a color our two, toggle date, that's it. No complications, just simple and elegant. The step counter, the fitness stuff - it's all exploiting the huge, round display.  And it charges wirelessly, rotating the display and showing off the most delightful night watch I've ever seen.  It also charges as if it is connected to the last remaining electrons in the universe, and it can easily get it's fix from a Nexus charger or some other thin QI charger. I consistently use it with ambient mode on, which is not quite the same as on the LG.  The Moto ambient is normally off, but turns on faster (and dimmer) than full on.  It even makes the LG seem a bit noisy with it's incessant light. Makes my battery last quite exactly one day, which is quite ok.  And every time I look at it, I can't help but go "ooh". 

While Motorola should be bashed a bit for not getting at least one of the engineers from LG to put a sensible SOC in their wonder watch, it gives such pleasure to wear. It now feels so nice on I feel when it's off. It gives me that feeling that I'll be sad when replacing it with something nicer. And that's the best feel a gadget can give me.

Nice review BTW, I was looking to buy a smart watch but couldn't decide which one, then the Nexus 9 became too tempting so I went for it and decided to wait out the smartwatch "war" :-) Now after I read your review I also have my mind on the Moto 360... Actually most for that round look..

Don't drink when your look at this...
 
This fucking kills me every single time I see it. I just sat here, laughing so hard tears were rolling down my face.

I've had a pretty shitty day, Depression-wise, so when I come across something that just makes me laugh until I can't laugh any more, it's always a good thing.

Why does +CyanogenMod disable pie on devices with hardware buttons? Both pa and revolt provide it, and it is a great addition to the large screen phones like my s4. Please, please don't restrict this option!

The hotel is well placed, but quite worn down. Not very well kept, needs some janitorial staff to do the odd rapairs. Wierd issues like water on the bathroom floor leaking out into the room (as opposed to down a drain). Did not feel very welcome by the front desk either. Most likely much better hotels to find in this area.
