I would give 5 stars but after the last update my watch can no longer make a call while my phone lock screen is on... now the watch has lost half of its usefulness... fix and I'll update my review.
Great I've seen a lot of mixed reviews but for me, I use this with my Sony smartwatch 3 and I've had no problems at all. Been using it over 4 months now and still works great!
Keeps disconnecting!!!! Ever since the marshmallow OTA on both the phones and watch my connection drops every few minutes. Just to get the watch to re-pair with my phone I had to downgrade the firmware resync it and then upgrade the firmware using the OTA! Not good Google, right now I have a $350 digital bracelet! WTF
Devices lose trust easily, disconnect permanently This app/ecosystem has poor UX and half-baked implementation. The experience of using the phone app is not fully featured. Most importantly, UX to keep watch and phone paired needs massive improvement: unacceptable that I need to power cycle both and then reset watch and app 3x just to get them to sync. C'mon Google!
Dropping connection I have a Huawei smart watch that I use android wear to connect with to my Galaxy note 5 phone. At first, everything was great. The past couple of months, I'm assuming since a major upgrade from what I've read, the phone keeps disconnecting. Returned my device 3 times thinking it was hardware issues, but not the case. It's the app from what I've been told. Anything further than 2', it disconnects. Try contacting Google, haha, good luck. Fixing to lose a loyal customer if not resolved!
Update causes connection issues Since installing the most recent update on 3/28/16 I have been unable to connect my moto 360(2nd gen.) with my moto x(also 2nd gen.). Edit: no connection issues over wifi, just Bluetooth
