Motorola on Tuesday announced that the Moto 360 Sport, first announced back in September, will finally launch on December 18. The initial debut will occur in the UK and France, before Motorola expands the rollout to the United States on January 7.
The Moto 360 Sport, as its name implies, is for folks with an active lifestyle. The type who are more likely to be swimming, running or hiking than sitting behind a desk entering data into an Excel spreadsheet. The latter would probably prefer something more stylish, like the second-generation Moto 360. The Moto 360 Sport offers heart rate tracking, GPS, and support for fitness applications such as MapMyRun, Under Armour Record, Strava, Google Fit, Fitbit and Moto Body. Motorola also promises all day battery life. It’s a watch to sweat in.
Look for the Moto 360 Sport from Motorola.com on January 7 in the U.S., where it will retail for $299. It’ll hit Best Buy stores later on January 10, and will eventually roll out to Brazil, Canada, China, Mexico and Spain later in 2016. OK, enough talk about exercise, back to my potato chips.
