The Moto 360 Sport, a smartwatch targetted at fitness enthusiasts has been launched for Rs 19,999 and will be selling exclusively on Flipkart. This is the second Moto 360 that has been launched this year after the second generation Moto 360 smartwatch.
Running on the Android Wear platform, just like the Moto 360, the Moto 360 Sport comes with a 1.37-inch display with a 360 x 325 pixel resolution thereby giving a pixel density of 263ppi. The watch display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 covering.
The Moto 360 Sport looks much more casual as compared to the Moto 360, thanks to the sweat-resistant silicone used in the band construction. The Moto 360 Sport houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset which has a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU inside along with Adreno 305 GPU. There is 4GB of internal storage along with 512MB of RAM. It is powered by a 300mAh.
The display measures around 45mm in diameter and is around 11.5mm thick. Thanks to the Sport nomenclature, this Moto 360 can be used independent of the smartphone when it comes to tracking activities. The Moto 360 Sport features the Motorola AnyLight technology which is a hybrid display that works as a regular LCD display indoors and reflects natural sunlight to enable legibility with reading outdoors.
The watch houses sensors such as a barometric altimeter, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, vibration/haptics engine, optical heart rate monitor and is IP67 water and dust resistant. There’s built-in GPS which lets you track your distance travelled, pace, lap times and much more.
Moto 360 Sport works well with fitness apps such as Strava, Google Fit, Fitbit, MapMyRun and so on. You can also listen to your music from the Moto 360 Sport by syncing your Google Play Music playlists.
Sadly, the Moto 360 Sport selling in India will only come with the Black silicone band, whereas the 360 Sport is known to come with multi-coloured bands.
