One of the features I use a lot on my Moto 360 is the “set timer” function. It is very simple and effective. I use the set timer feature mostly when I am in the kitchen and “trying” to whip me something up to eat. I tend to get distracted quite easily, so this is a neat little trick.
All you need to do is say: “Okay Google”, followed by: “set timer to xx-minutes” (you can basically say as many seconds, minutes or hours as you would like). The countdown starts automatically straight after that and you don’t have to do anything else anymore but wait. The Moto 360 will start to vibrate when the countdown is over. The smartwatch does not have a loudspeaker unfortunately, but since you’ll most probably be wearing the watch when you use this feature – I am sure that you will notice that when it starts to vibrate.
How strong are the vibrations?
How effective is the vibration of the smart watch? Well it is not all that strong, but you will surely notice it when you wear it. Something I have been wanting to try for a while now is to sleep with the watch on. I want to find out if I would actually wake up from the vibrations on my wrist. I have not tried sleeping with the smartwatch on just yet, because I usually have to charge it at night after a long days “work”. I guess I could give it a go though and charge it before going to bed.
The battery would surely last throughout a full nights sleep, as it does not drain all that much when leaving it in idle mode (about 10-15% per night). I think I will give it a go in the coming few days and report back to you guys if it worked well or not.
