Moto 360 Smartwatch Review

 

Fitness trackers, the Pebble, and Samsung's myriad of Gear-branded smartwatches may have kickstarted the wrist-worn wearables trend, but the true test for this category is just beginning. While Apple recently put the watch world on notice with Apple...

Motorola Moto 360 Smartwatch Review

 

All-around smart? Motorola puts its Moto 360 smart watch with leather band and classic design into the smart watch race -- and, at first glance, the Moto 360 makes a good first impression. Our report will check to see if this $249 USD gadget, in...

Noble materials, Dust and water resistant, Compatible with many Android devices, Wristband adjustable in many lengths, Bright screen, Wireless charging feature

Bulky casing, Inaccurate sensors, Use sometimes awkward, Speech detection sometimes inaccurate, Circular display slices contents

The Moto 360 is Motorola’s rather stylish entry into the smart watch market,. The materials are of good quality, and the circular display is a nice change from the earlier square smart watches. Users should definitely update to Android Wear 5.0.1...

Moto 360 Sport review: Only runners need apply

 

I hate running. It's not just because I have bad knees and it hurts to run—I would rather lift weights and get my cardio on a recumbent bike where I can distract myself playing mobile games. Motorola's fitness-focused version of the Moto 360 is not for...

Works just fine as a standard Android Wear watch ; AnyLight display makes ambient mode easy to read in the sun

Only comes in one size and style ; Fitness tracking is optimized around running only

Optimized for running (and only running), the Moto 360 Sport compromises on too much of what we loved about the 2nd generation Moto 360. If you love to run, and only run, it's a reasonable option.

Motorola Moto 360 Sport review

 

This weekend, I will be running a 10-mile road race. It will be my first in nearly five years. To prepare for it, I've been running regularly for the past few months with an assortment of gadgets: the Garmin Forerunner 235/630, TomTom Spark , Fitbit...

The Moto 360 Sport has GPS for tracking pace and distance when running, and a display that is easy to read in different environments.

Battery life is dreadful; running features are limited; expensive compared to similar GPS watches; Android Wear still feels like a work in progress.

The Moto 360 Sport offers no compelling justification for you to buy it versus one of the many competing dedicated smart running watches.

Moto 360 Sport review: Best Android Wear smartwatch for recreational runners

 

The Moto 360 Sport is focused on running with an integrated GPS receiver. While the music experience is terrible while running, it does a good job of tracking your route.

Moto 360 Sport review: Solid smartwatch, subpar workout tool

 

The original Moto 360 was the first Android Wear watch to get people really excited about the platform. The second was a thoughtful update, if not exactly a game-changer. And now we have a third, the new Moto 360 Sport, which has a slightly different...

Hybrid" display works great ; GPS does a respectable job tracking runs ; Lightweight and comfortable

Can't swap out the watch band ; Could use more physical controls ; Battery life could have been better

The Moto 360 Sport doesn't stray too far from the path this year's other Moto 360s took, but goodies like its AnyLight hybrid display make it great watch for the outdoors. It's plenty snappy for an Android Wear watch, too -- we just wish the hardware...

Motorola Moto 360 Sport

 

The Motorola Moto 360 Sport is a solid smartwatch for runners, but cyclists and swimmers will be better served by a dedicated activity tracker.

Attractive, sporty design. Built-in GPS and heart rate sensor. Comfortable band.

Only tracks running. Heart rate sensor is sometimes inaccurate. Poor battery life in testing. Android Wear still needs work.

Conclusion The Moto 360 Sport is one of the better Android Wear options available, thanks to its GPS and heart rate sensor. Some Android Wear watches have one or the other, but the Moto 360 Sport is the only one with both. If you're not a runner,...

Moto 360 Sport review

 

When Motorola announced that it would be making a new sport watch, it was not unreasonable to think that it might be an improved version of something like the MotoActv, a 2011 release that won over...

Sweat-proof band ; Includes GPS ; Outdoor readable display

Currently only tracks running ; Android Wear is still a work in progress ; Requires daily charging

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

 

The first thing that struck me about the Moto 360 Sport is how together it felt. While the first Moto 360 seemed the epitome of style at the time back when it was launched in late 2014, it was also rolling with a replaceable watch strap system that was...

Motorola Moto 360 Stone Leather Band

 

Motorola's Moto 360 was the first draw-dropping wearable concept of 2014 when it was teased back in March: a round watch running futuristic Google software, it seemed like a device descended from the middle future. Clearly, this was the next wave of...

The Moto 360's distinctive round design and premium materials look sharp. It's lightweight and comfortable, and it doubles as a bedside clock with its clever included inductive charging cradle.

Its battery life is not good enough for a watch. Its Android Wear software is awkward and not entirely useful, its fitness features are lacking, and its round display has a weird black bar at the bottom.

The Moto 360 tries to be the ultimate smartwatch, but it just ends up being a better-looking Android Wear watch with some notable limitations.
