i been using AUTO
this morning use level 1.
Ambient OFF

7.20am to 9.44am, drop 9%

everything need to disable/off to make it work

this moto 360 is really a half-baked product.

Yesterday, I had Ambient mode OFF and brightness level 3. Even had Facer watch face (with moving seconds). Also installed Wear Mini Launcher. Left home at 650am and by the time I reached home at 730pm, I still had 59%.

7.20am to 11.20am (4 hours)

16% drop

much better (should be due to brightness 1)

Got around 80 notifications 'til now

VERY NICE!


How long did the whole process take from placing your order to delivery at your doorstep?

Did you encounter any delays along the way?

Ordered on the 29th Sept, got it today 14th Oct, approximately 16 days.
I have the breakdown of the delivery times on my blog (= Moto360 Smartwatch – Bite and Bytes

Don't think there were delays along the way, just had quite a long time of wait for bestbuy to ship to CGW warehouse.

Interesting that you got this step "Got notified that order has been shipped from Bestbuy", since I only got "order placed" notification.

I still haven't received that kind of notification from CGW/HSG after few days. Got a colleague tried to order through the same channel, i.e., CGW BuyForMe service, but was rejected, said due to they don't "service/order" products from certain companies. Hence, I am also wondering whether my orders went through.

Hmmm.. CGW did send me this email to notify that my order was on its way to their warehouse. Maybe you can check with their CSO.

Hm ok, thanks for the advise. I just checked and I don't see this. I only saw order status was processed. Hope my order won't get cancelled.

This morning, I turned on Ambient mode with brightness 2. Using the black Rotate watch face. Left home 645am, now at 95%. Will report more tonight.
Just reach home. Battery is now at 26% (slightly less than 13.5 hours). Ambient mode ON does consume the battery quite a bit. And I find that the screen turns on rather easily with ambient mode ON, with slight hand movements.

Maybe tomorrow try with brightness 1 and see if there's an improvement. Good way to calibrate my battery too.
