I have been wearing it for a year, hardly ever notice the slice at the bottom of the screen. And I know several people who also have the 360 and none of them really notice or care. Having the light sensor that goes with it is FAR more important, trust me. I would love to have BOTH a light sensor and no cut out to go along with the tiny bezel, but that is still just not really possible.
If I could have any change for the 360, it would be either thinner or always-on display (for non-sport). The 360.2 offers neither. Everything else is fine in the first version (display res, battery life, speed, charging, style, reliability, functionality, etc). The 360.1 has been a really solid and decent smart watch.
Here is my take on the changes coming with the 360.2 from what I could gather from different sources:
* Faster processor
* More cores
* Higher resolution
* Lugs for better looks and easier band changing
* Three sizes: Same men's 46mm dia, new men's smaller 42mm dia version with wide band, and women's 42mm with narrow band.
* Larger battery (in the 46mm version only)
* Moved button for easier access
* Sport version with hybrid, transflective, always-on display
* Same storage & memory :)
* Same light sensor and other sensors :)
* Same bluetooth and WiFi :)
* Same thickness :(
* Same wireless charging :)
* Same lack of speaker :|
* Same display tech, except sport version :|
* Android Wear :)
* Small bezel with angled cut glass :)
* Same tiny slice on bottom of display for light sensor :|
* Stone leather band not available for men :(
* Lack of always-on-display version for non-sport (bummer)
* Unknown weights
* Unknown availability of sport version- non-sport preorders now
Not sure if I will upgrade from the 360.1 to the 360.2 or not. I am quite happy with the first version at this point. The new features are compelling enough for me, but I was hoping for either an always-on screen or a thinner watch. Since I don't do "sports watches" (plastic/silicone=gross), I would have neither improvement. I could go for the SMALLER men's (since I can't have thinner), which would likely be less stress on my wrist (CTS), but smaller = harder to read for my older eyes, and I wouldn't gain the extra battery (not that I really need it- almost 2 days is more than enough right now). But they also dropped the color band I want (stone grey). Decisions, decisions....
