Quick, look down at your wrist! If you see a Moto 360 on there, then you should shift your gaze to your phone’s notification tray and keep an eye out for an update.
Motorola just announced that it’s pushing an update to the Moto 360 that includes bugs fixes, battery saving tweaks and more. The full changelog provided by Moto looks like this:
- Smart Battery Saving - When your battery hits 15%, your Moto 360 will turn off ambient mode, so you don’t have to remember to.
- Timely Time Checks - Moto 360 will synchronize the time with your phone more often to make sure it is up to the minute.
- User Interface Tweaks - We observed with consumers that there are many times where you want to use your Moto 360 as truly a classic watch—a beautiful way to see the time. A new gesture now lets you see the full watch face without permanently dismissing a notification. Just touch the top of a notification and swipe down. You’ll see the notification again when you have another high priority notification.
- Mood Lighting - Moto 360 will adjust to the lighting of the room while charging, so that it isn’t too bright or too dark.
- Readying the wires for Bluetooth - There are a couple of under-the-hood enhancements that will pave the way for connecting Bluetooth headsets to the watch.
- Bug Squashing - As usual, bugs are squashed to enhance the overall user experience.
There are a few things worth noting about this update. First, Motorola says that it’ll be rolling out in phases, so don’t fret if you don’t get it when you’re done reading this post. Second, when your update does arrive, you’ll need to have your Moto 360 connected to your phone and it’ll need to have an 80 percent charge, too.
