So that’s a lot of customization. As such, it’s worth noting what the Moto can and cannot do when paired with an iPhone. From there, you’ll still get the notifications from your phone mirrored on your Motoand you’ll also receive Google Now info, provided you log in with your Google account.
Voice search worked well enough, although it failed to recognize the “OK Google” command often enough to be a bit frustrating. Smart displays came into their own 360c Lastly, the is still rather thick, although its light weight makes wearing it easy enough.
