Default Hardware notes/thoughts

Some thoughts with regards to:
http://www.lucaviscardi.eu/la-mia-prova-di-moto-360/
and the gallery:
http://www.lucaviscardi.eu/moto360-l...-in-esclusiva/

1) IP67 waterproof rating. Water resistance is a requirement for a smartwatch. Can't go swimming with it, unlike the Pebble. Not sure why they couldn't have made it more waterproof since you can't open it up.

2) Optical heart rate sensor - nice, but is it reliable? We'll see.

3) Battery life was estimated at 2.5x better than LG. YMMV big time on that though.

Yes an AMOLED display is a huge plus for a smartwatch. It's a shame that Google does not allow modification, because a black Google card design would increase battery life significantly more

Why does the moto 360 have a black semicircular patch on the bottom? They say that it houses the display drivers but I saw another video in which the screen was perfectly circular.

That houses the display driver and light sensor I believe.. I don't think there is a video that actually shows a functional watch with completely circular display... All I know of are the promotional ones from way back when

Lol dude that isn't a video of a functional watch. That's just circular images imposed on the image of a moto 360. Truth is all those images didn't consider the black bar at the bottom

It's for the display driver and the ambient light sensor, check the TechCrunch Moto 360 Hands-On
Before : Xperia Play R800i - Xperia NXT 2 - Android 2.3.7 - Rooted - Unlocked BootLoader - DoomKernel v14

Now : Xperia SP C5303 - eXistenZ Ultra 4.0.0 - Android 4.3 - Rooted - Locked BootLoader
