  1. Hey man I'm having issues pairing my moto 360 (first gen) to my iPhone 7. The phone is update to the newest version, but I'm not sure if the watch is updated all the way. If I try to pair it through the app the watch never shows up and if I just try to pair it through Bluetooth it disconnects. I was wondering if I had to update the watch. Is there a way I could do it on a computer or can I use a friends phone that is an android. Any help would be appreciated?

  2. Your video helped me a lot, thanks!
    Question: When I get disconnected (Moto 360 to iPhone) I can not reconnect easily, sometimes I have to unpair the watch, resets to factory settings and pair again. Any tips to avoid all that?

  4. Has the battery problem with the ios 10 update been fixed for the watch? I want to buy this watch for my son but I want to know if it will work well with the new ios 10 operating system.

  5. PLEASE NOTE: SINCE RECORDING THIS VIDEO AND THE RELEASE OF IOS 10 I have experienced battery performance issues. Moto 360 drains battery in 1 hour when connected to iPhone. Have a possible fix, testing now will release follow up video shortly

  6. Hey,
    I just got a moto 360 thanks to the help of your video! I just have a quick question. I updated my watch to version 1.3 and it like you said was a drain on my battery, so I'm trying to update my watch to version "1.4". So far after several hours and several tries it almost downloads and says an error occurs. So then I take out my android and factory reseted it and tried updating it. It was almost finished then it started over again. How did you update your moto 360, and how long did it take you? Thanks for your time.

  7. I just wanted to thank your for your great help. I wanted a watch that actually you know…. Looked like a watch! The Moto 360 had that. You showed me everything I was concerned about. Now I'm fixing to buy a Moto 360. Thanks again, I'm definitely subscribing!

  8. It's been less than 5 hours and the watch has disconnected about 9 times. Is there another way to reconnect it without rebooting it all the time? Honestly, am beginning to find it frustrating.
