Problems pairing moto360 with iphone 7

There appeared to be some problems with the Motorola 360 Second generation. The issue at hand at the moment is that the Moto 360 cannot be connected to the iPhone seven. The online magazine the verge has reported that there appear to be some issues with the fossil Q and the Moto 360 to pair with the iPhone seven and the iPhone 7+.

Owners like myself of the android Smart watch have able to use their Smart watches with iPhone devices since Apple added iOS support back in August of last year.

Apple already seems to have had some problems with the release of IOS 10.0 and android watches. Google says that it is aware of the serious pairing issues.

Apple does not lets users fully use the IOS system on their android watches, but you can show some notifications on your watch if you would like. Maybe this was a problem that Apple was not aware of before releasing the iPhone seven or their new software version. The android compatibility has been a little bit of a problem child for Apple.

Although the market for smartwatches is predominantly dominated by android devices, Apple does not seem to care much about this ecosystem. We do hope that Apple will step up the game and help android users use their smart watches a lot better than they are doing at the moment. The android Smart watches simply look a lot better than the ones that Apple are producing at the moment.

Android Smart watches are faster, better looking, and better value for money than the Apple watch. Lets let’s hope that they fix this problem soon. We will keep you posted!

Moto360 sport for only 200 Dollars

Motorola’s fitness-focused smartwatch, the Moto 360 Sport, is quite the workout buddy. It can track your distance, running pace, time, calories burned and much more. It might not be the sleekest Android Wear device out there, but it’s definitely the best Android smartwatch available for tracking your daily exercises.

It can now be yours for only 200 Dollars. It used to be 99 Dollars more expensive, but Motorola has decided to drop the price dramatically in the United States.

Our friends in India will also not need to wait much longer anymore. The Moto 360 Sport will be launched April 26th. This is by far the best Android Sports Watch that is available on the market today. Be sure to get your hands on one.

New rumours about the Moto 360 2

The Moto 360 2 might be the most anticipated smartwatch on the planet after Apple showed off their first product a few months back and is slowly rolling that out to customers world wide.

The Moto 360 has gotten quite a bit of traction in recent years though and is one, if not the most beautiful smartwatch on the face of the earth at the moment.

Rumours has it that the Moto 360 2…

Rumour has it that the Moto 360 2 will be launched later this summer, the strong price drops indicate that Motorola are selling off their stock and preparing for a new product launch.

Motorola’s parent company, Lenovo, has even offered some hints as to when the watch might drop. Late last year, Lenovo executive Gleb Mishin, suggested the as yet unconfirmed device would go on sale in “early 2015” with a “modified design”.

Rumour has it the Moto 360 second generation will already be unveiled at the Google I/O on the 28th/29th of May.

Rumour has it the Moto 360’s edition 2015 will be released by the end of July. This is highly speculative, but could well be true given the tremendous interest in the Apple Watch link to store.

Rumour has it the Moto 360 II will be launched this summer (2015)

Rumour has it that the Moto 360 2 will indeed have a far superior screen to that which is currently in the Motorola smartwatch. The pixel density will be increased to over 245 ppi (that of the LG Urbane), which will make it nearly impossible for the naked eye to see the individual pixels on the watch face. The current Moto 360 only has a pixel per inch density of 205 ppi.

Rumour has it the Moto 360 2 will be named Moto 360 II.

Rumour has it the Moto 360 II will come in two sizes, a smaller one for women or men with very skinny wrists, and a more masculine one with a larger watch face – easier to read. The larger version will probably be the one to go with if you are looking for the better user experience.

The latest rumours suggest that the Moto 360 will become a part of Moto Maker, allowing users to design their own smart watch. Users will be able to choose between gold, silver or black metal for the body of the watch, as well as choosing from the same colours for a metal band or a leather band.

The black bar at the bottom of the Moto 360 will disappear 

Rumour has it, the Moto 360 II will have a loudspeaker in it and will be able to make and take calls, something the current Moto 360 is not able to do and for some is an obvious deal breaker (although I don’t really know why, because that is not the most practical use for a watch and looks damn right silly in public).

Rumour has it the leather straps can easily be replaced and clipped onto the Moto 360 2 within a matter of seconds. Cool if you would like to change the band to the cloths you are wearing and make you watch fit your OOTD.

Rumour has it the watch will be a lot thinner and have a smaller bezel. The current Moto 360 model is a little bit thick for some people’s liking and Lenovo are looking to change that with the second generation of their most successful smartwatch to date.

Rumour has it, and this will be a huge relief for many: the small black bar at the bottom of the display will disappear and the Moto 360 2 will finally be entirely round.

The black bar at the bottom is there due to limitations of screen technology. Moto had to reserve a small area from the circle as a place to house components for the screen. It results in a small flat spot on the bottom of the circle.

Rumour has it the new Moto 360 will have substantially longer and better battery life than the first version. The use of a round or hexagonal battery, similar to that which LG presented recently, would double the battery life of the smartwatch.

We hope that we might actually be able to wear it for a full weekend without desperately needing to put your watch in the charging dock every evening.

The current Moto 360 is having quite a few battery drainage issues after the Android Wear 5.1.1. update. Here you will find a short tutorial on how to fix your battery problems if you are experiencing any.

Update July 18th: Rumour has it the new Moto 360 will be priced between $250 and $300 just like the first generation. The price cuts on the current model to as low as $120-149 are a strong indication for the release of a next version to be released very soon.

Update July 18th: Rumour has it the Moto 360 2 will be released in August/September of 2015. The first launch date that we thought it could be released at was the Google I/O on May 28th/29th, but there was no sign of the new super stylish smartwatch.

Update July 19th: rumor has it the new Moto 360 will be released at a Lenovo press conference on July 28th! Here is the source: link

Any other rumours?

Maybe you have heard some other rumours on the Moto 360 2? Feel free to add them in the comment section below. I am already very excited about the launch of this great product and fingers crossed that ALL of these rumours will come true.

Gmail “undo send” functionality now available to all

Don’t you hate it when that happens? What? Well you have just send the wrong person that email you really did not want them to see. Half a second of not paying attention and it is out, gone, forever. But wait there should be a solution for that right? Within Gmail there has been a “hidden” feature for quite some time that enables you to get that email back before its been sent off.

Oh shoot that should not have gone out!

The ten second rule applies, or at least it did. Now you have the possibility to change the time you have to decide on whether you would have wanted to send that email out to thirty seconds.

It is pretty easy, you send off an email using Google’s Gmail on Chrome for example and when you click send, a small notification at the top of your screen shows up, asking you if you would like to “undo send”. If you click on that link, the email will not be sent out and remain in your drafts folder. Pretty neat right?

To enable it, go to mail.google.com, click on the settings cog on the top right of your screen, then choose Settings. Scroll down in the General tab until you see the “Undo Send” option, and check the box to enable the feature. Oddly enough, Google has given users an option to choose between 5, 10, 20 or 30 seconds for the cancellation period. I don’t really know why one would choose to only undo emails within the first 5 seconds when there’s a longer 30-second option available, but it’s there if you want to live on the edge.

Give it a shot, it is easy to use. Did you ever send someone an email you really would not have wanted them to see and wished you could have retrieved it? Leave your stories and comments in the comment section below.

Android quick news – Android M Google I/O 2015

In today’s Android quick news: Android M at the Google I/O 2015.

App permissions: With Android M the user will finally be able to control exactly what type of information an App is allowed to see. The user can determine exactly if he would like to share his age, gender, track location, or access contact lists.

The user will be prompted and can decline or accept the use of a certain feature. This way it will become more obvious to anyone who uses an Android device, how his or her personal information is used – very much like Apple iOS has been doing for a number of years. In the past it was only possible for the user to either accept or decline all app permissions before downloading an app. When the user did not accept the app permissions, it was impossible to download the app.

Moto360 gets Android wear WiFi update

This morning, the Moto360 smartwatch got its Android Wear WiFi update. This is probably the most exciting update so far and could be a real game changer for many Moto360 fans, and those who have been interested in getting one, but wanted to wait until the WiFi (phone-less) functionality was added to the most beautiful smartwatch on the planet today.

We now have confirmation that Android Wear 5.1.1 has started to reach LG’s G Watch and G Watch R today

In a post in its product forums today, Google said that the rollout of the Android 5.1.1 update for Android Wear smartwatches is imminent. And just so, Android Police is reporting that some owners of the LG G Watch and LG G Watch R have already received it. The update adds some great new features, including support for getting notifications on any Wi-Fi network, wrist gestures, and the ability to draw emoji.

The Android Wear 5.1.1. update brings us a number of new features that we have not yet seen before. A number of Android smartwatches have started receiving the over-the-air update today; including the: LG Watch Urbane, the Sony SmartWatch 3, the Samsung Live Gear S and the Moto 360.

Moto 360 smartwatch users can leave their phones at home

The update enables users to leave their smartphones at home, whilst still connected to the internet, and use their beloved Moto360s without having to be connected over bluetooth to the “parent” phone. The moto 360 was released at the end of 2014 and a big success ever since. It is by far the best looking smartwatch on the market. Motorola were the first to launch a round smartwatch, something that had not been done and seen before.

Although the Moto 360 is a sole Android watch, there have been rumours about an iOS app to support a number of simple functionalities, such as take a call, read your hangout messages or check your latest emails. However this latest Android Wear 5.1.1. update does not help iOS users to use their moto 360 to work with their iPhones or iPads. Maybe that is still to come in the near future. We will keep you posted on that.

What does the Android Wear 5.1.1. bring us?

What the new Android Wear 5.1.1. update actually can do, we will dive into in a few new posts in the coming few days. More information, insider tips and tricks will follow shortly as well as a thorough run-through of the new Android Wear update for the Moto360.

The update started rolling out slowly and unfortunately it has not reached me just yet (in Germany/Switzerland). I have heard from a number of friends from the US that they have received the update already and are very excited about it. I hope I will not have to wait for all too long. Of course I will report back to you as soon as I have received the update and everything is up and running.

If you care to share your first impressions on the Android Wear 5.1.1. update with us, feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of this post.

Update 18th of June 2015: Roll-out has started

It has taken a bit longer than expected but the roll-out of the Android Wear version 5.1.1. has finally started. All Moto 360 users will receive the update in the coming few hours. Of course we will report on the new features, pros and cons over the next few days.

So everyone, get your Moto 360s out and get updating! Yuuuhuuu!
