    need some help deciding whether to get the current one for 150$ which is an awesome price or wait a month for the new one.
    the only reservation i have is that poor ti omap processor choice. Doesnt seem very future proof.
    thoughts?

    Tough to say, how much will the 360 2 be? That plays a large factor for me. I'm guess $249-$299

    Wait for 2nd gen. I have the Moto 360, and the next one should build on what they have learned and be even better. :)

    yeah thats the price point i was thinking, but i read motorola had problems updating the moto 360 to 5.1.1 because of the poor performance of the ti omap but still 150$ is a really good deal

    I have been looking at the Moto 360 as android wear, but after reading and watching a number of reviews I am really think about whether I should purchase. Oh. I would be waiting for the Moto 360 (2nd Gen) to launch if I did purchase.

    Here is what I understand about the Moto 360. IT ONLY GIVES NOTIFICATIONS. If it is a text, depending on its length, you will undoubtedly have to look at your cell phone to read its entirety. This is the same for emails, etc. You can speak to the wearable. However, Siri or Google Now are hit and miss depending on the environment so you will be repeating yourself often. Why not just take your phone out of your pocket and type? Also, it can't be used by itself. Your phone must be present.

    If I purchase a wearable I want it to function by itself. Make it unnecessary to take my phone out of my pocket. You know what? I will just purchase one of the apple arm bands and use it as a wrist band. Put my Oneplus One in there. BAAM!

    I've had the first gen since launch, and while it's a great product, I've been mainly wearing the Apple Watch due to its superior hardware/build quality. The 1st gen 360's screen is just not that good, and i expect that'll be the first thing they upgrade on the next one.

    If you're gonna drop $150 on a watch, you might as well drop $250 on one that isn't a year old (you'll get more out of it when you go to resell it also :)

    Wait for the second one. I have the first one, the build quality isn't so good. It's actually my second one because the bottom plastic piece cracked and I got a replacement. Hopefully the next is built better.
