And the problem for women like me, with thin wrists, is that the
watch may sound small — 1.8 inches in diameter and just a
half-inch thick — but it almost looks like I grabbed a clock off
the wall and strapped it to my arm.
Of course, size wasn’t an issue for everyone who tried it on. It
looked decent on my father’s medium-size wrist, and just right on
my co-worker’s extra-large one.
Motorola says it is working on smaller versions, but that makes me
concerned about battery life: Even this big, honking model had to
be charged twice a day. Most days, after charging it overnight, I
had to put it back on its wireless charging cradle by 4 p.m. If
only the large black circle could also work as a sundial so I
could still tell the time when the battery dies.
So it’s way too big for at least half the population and has to be charged twice a day.
