Good news for fans of Motorola's newest wearable device. The mobile manufacturing company is rolling out an update for the Moto 360. The update includes features such as Bluetooth connectivity and charging notifications as well as a few bug fixes.
The Bluetooth connectivity feature is aiming to minimize temporary disconnections between the Moto 360 and its paired smartphone. This should provide users with better overall smartwatch-smartphone connectivity when using both devices in tandem.
As for charging notifications, it gives users a special alert to confirm that the Moto 360 is charging. This will come very handy especially when the battery is fully used up. Through the charging notifications, users have a way of knowing if their smartwatch is indeed charging, even if the device is completely turned off.
The bug fixes consist of a few improvements and adjustments to tweak the Moto 360's performance. Some of the newly implemented upgrades will also optimize the smartwatch's system and processing speed.
Like any other software update, this roll-out for the Moto 360 will be conducted in several phases. That means it may take a few days to complete, so users of the Motorola wearable device may have to wait a while before the software update is done.
But no need to fret too much -- users will get a notification on their devices once their Moto 360s are ready for the update. To download the update, the wearable device will be connected to a smartphone that has a data connection. Users should take note that their Moto 360s will need to be charged at least 80 percent in order to download the software update.
The Moto 360 has enjoyed a rather pleasant run when it debuted earlier this month. There were reports that initial stocks of the Motorola wearable device that were offered online were sold out. And now with the software update, the Moto 360 continues to find ways to excite its users.
The Moto 360 was introduced by Motorola during an event held at the company's headquarters in the city of Chicago. The wearable device was unveiled alongside other Motorola products that include the Moto X, the Moto G, and the Moto Hint (Bluetooth earpiece accessory). The Moto 360 runs on Android Wear, the wearable-compatible version of Google's Android operating system. It features a Texas Instruments OMAP 3 processor, and has 4 gigabytes of internal storage as well as 512 megabytes of random access memory (RAM). The smartwatch also has a 320 mAh battery.
