The Moto 360 has been out for some time now and prices have recently dropped in preparation for the Moto 360 V2. The price drop on V1 of the Moto 360 is actually a good thing and I think people will jump on it to see what smartwatches are all about. How do I know that? Well, I said once I would never buy the Moto 360 because it was overpriced but since Moto dropped the price to $149 recently (ending soon) I picked one up. $149 is a very comfortable price range for this category and it’s the only reason I bought it. But you aren’t here for that story, this is the TYLT Moto 360 watch band review.
Design/Quality and Specs
As you can imagine there’s not a whole lot of specs to go over other than the band is made of a sweat resistant silicone, has a metal buckle and a nice push hasp to keep the excess from flopping around. The design is minimal and simplistic but I think it tends to favor a more male oriented design. I was sent the black version from TYLT but it comes in a variety of colors. The quality is better than what I was expecting. Anytime I’m dealing with rubber/silicon I’m a little worried about quality, no worries here. The band is well constructed and doesn’t feel like it’s going to rip or fall apart anytime soon.
Function and Installation
TYLT really made this band with all sorts of wrist sizes in mind. There are holes all the way around the band so almost any wrist should be able to use this band. I tend to sweat a lot and the sweat resistance of the band is noticeable. I really love the Moto 360’s leather band, it feels nice and looks good but it does get sweaty after a bit. Installing the band is a breeze as TYLT provides you with a tool to do so. If you’ve never installed a band you might want to take it to a jeweler to do it for you but really, it’s not hard.
Priced in at $29.95 I think TYLT’s price is spot on and the band is well worth the asking price. Packaging is nice as always with TYLT and the band is super comfy and almost feels like the leather band. The ribbed design and holes give it a different look and sets it apart from other Moto 360’s. Overall I’d say buy this band if you’re looking for a good deal and quality band.
Not much to say over what I’ve said already. Great band, high quality and well worth the $29.95 price. This one should be on your very short list for Moto 360 bands.
