Moto 360 Sport review: Solid smartwatch, subpar workout tool

 

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...

"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

There are people who couldn't care less about fitness stats on a watch, and there are people who crave them. The Moto 360 Sport really only makes sense to people who fall smack in the middle. It's functional and even ingenious in some ways, but it...

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.

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: Only runners need apply

 

Motorola's fitness-focused smartwatch gives up style and customization for run tracking. It's not a great tradeoff.

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.

First 2 Weeks with the Moto 360 Sport [Review]

 

A couple years ago if you mentioned wearables, most people probably thought of something like a Fitbit or a Nike Fuel Band. Smartwatches were still a relatively new idea with only Samsung releasing several models ahead of the competition in order to...

The Moto 360 Sport reviewed: Good, but not enough fitness to be worth it

 

The $299 smartwatch is a runner's companion; all other athletes look elsewhere.

Moto Body Running doesn't require your smartphone to work—you can leave it at home and go track a run with only the watch ; 4GB of storage for music; you can connect wireless headphones to the watch to listen to tunes while working out ;...

Moto Body is good for tracking daily activity and running, nothing more ; Distance measurements can be inaccurate on indoor runs ; Heart rate monitor is hit-or-miss ; $299 is quite expensive for what is, comparatively, a limited fitness watch

Motorola enhanced the Android Wear experience for those who want a hybrid smartwatch and fitness tracker. At its core, the Moto 360 Sport is just a regular Moto 360—Android Wear runs smoothly on it, it handles all of your smartphone notifications with...

Moto 360 Sport

 

Announced alongside the Moto 360 2 late last year, the Moto 360 Sport is – as the name suggests – a smartwatch meant to be worn with your tracksuit rather than your three-piece suit.

Great display in all conditions ; Accurate and fast GPS ; Android Wear is getting better

Limited number of workout options ; Battery drains very fast with GPS on ; Crap strap

Moto 360 Sport review: top smartwatch, sub-par running watch

 

Perfect if you want an everyday smartwatch without the faux-luxe other brands offer

Clear ; adaptable screen ; Comfortable ; casual aesthetic ; Accurate GPS

Lint magnet ; Not a true sports watch sub.
