It’s no easy task reviewing an iPhone. Apple isn’t like other phone makers and doesn’t create and launch several smartphone models throughout the year.

Instead, once per annum, Apple announces the new devices that it’s going to sell for the entire next 12 months. That’s it. It takes one shot a year, sits back and focuses on the next project on the table. Still, despite that approach, it manages to go toe-to-toe with Android makers that fire off several rounds each year.

Earlier this year Google blew our minds with Cardboard, a $25 do-it-yourself virtual reality headset that works using the display on pretty much any Android phone. We’re not expecting Apple to offer its own version of Google Cardboard anytime soon, but luckily there’s no need to wait. One new project on Kickstarter is offering an VR headset that works with your iOS device at an extremely affordable price.

The first Moto X, which debuted last year to muted consumer enthusiasm, didn’t get caught up in the smartphone hustle. And that’s what made it so great. While other Android competitors ran rampant with features and specs, Motorola used its brain to create a new breed of smartphone; it made a phone for everyone, something intelligent and thoughtful. It was the phone companies last year tried so hard to make, and although some companies got close, the Moto X was our pick for best phone of 2013.

TechnoBuffalo president Jonathan Rettinger and myself have been testing two separate units for more than a week now, and we’re here with a full review of the Moto 360. Is it the smartwatch you’ve been dreaming of? Should you run out and buy one right this instant? Yes and no.
