Interesting, Lokki was right. Moto X wrote something to the ring so that it gets recognized as a Moto Skip, preventing it from getting read by other apps. Had to use the Samsung s5 to erase one side so that it'd work as intended, keeping the other side to use for unlocking the phone.

RE: Moto X
Yes, Moto X has its own NFC unlock app that's meant to work with their Moto Skip thingy. Skip is awkward to use which was why I turned to NFC Ring in the first place, although it only costs a fraction of the price of a NFC Ring.
Anyway, now that I know about the two sides of the ring, I registered the other side to use for unlocking too and it works fine now. Curiously, no matter what app I tried to read/write the ring, none of them works... NXP Tagwriter, NFC Task, the official NFC Ring Control, not one detects the ring at all. Which meant if Moto X didnt have its own NFC unlocking app the ring would be junk D: Tried on a Samsung S5 and didn't have any issue, detected the ring just fine. Weird.
Pondering what to do with the ring now. >_<
Just got my ring... Cant say I'm entirely please. But first thing first... Yes, it works with my Moto X. The ring itself, it seems i got my size a bit wrong and I was expecting it to look like this, but instead I got this.
I didnt bother with the official NFC Unlock app, and just used Moto X's built in unlocking, works just fine. Took me a while to figure out the sweet spot, sometimes still takes a while to trigger it though. Would be nice if the sensitivity/range is greater. Oh, and I've no idea how the ring is built but seems I can only unlock with the black part of the ring, no other spots.
Overall, it's a pretty nifty toy I guess. I've no clue whether I got the wrong colour or the pictures were simply misleading, Signature rings are meant to look like what I received? Anyway, probably too much hassle to get replacement for the right size/colour so I'll just leave it be..
