    AW 2.0 does have a lot of new functionality and the whole GUI is a little different than AW 1.5. I'm still not convinced that it's "better" than 1.5....but Google is actively working on it. It might be better to get a watch with 2.0, or at least one that supports 2.0, for the reasons you mentioned.

    Yeah, I don't want to move into something that's not going to play well with apps for very long.
    Your wife has the women's model of the 360, right? Is it significantly smaller than the men's version? I don't want anything too small. When I was wearing analog watches, I leaned towards the men's styles and only wore women's for dressy occasions. I still wear those when I dress up, but that's seldom, so want to make sure I end up with something rather substantial on my wrist, but not something the size of a 45 record.

    Honestly, 2 is ok. Prefer the notifications from 1 though. By a lot.

    Yes, she has the women's version Moto 360. It's a 42MM watch, so the same size as the men's 42 MM Moto 360. The only two things that really make it a women's version is the Rose Gold color and it takes 16 MM watch bands vs the 20 MM bands for the men's version.

    That's very helpful, thank you! I'd prefer black or silver, so a man's version would be fine.

    Oh cool, thank you @Sajo! Looks like there's quite a difference.. I've saved this to refresh my memory once I find my new watch.
    Thanks again!
