Verizon takes on Moto 360 Sport, Fitbit Blaze

Cellular networks have kept up with some of the smartwatch releases out there, especially the cell-connected variants. It went for the Gear S, the Gear S2 and what was to be the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE … “was to be” was all it was, though. So, what does Verizon think it’s doing selling Bluetooth-only smartwatches?

Maybe its product philosophy now includes getting its subscribers fit without XLTE. Verizon announced that it’ll be helping to “make those New Year’s resolutions a reality” by adding two new fitness products to its inventory.

The Moto 360 Sport is a little smartwatch our Jaime Rivera is testing right now for our Pocketnow Fitness coverage — it brings more sensors and fitness software upon the basic Moto 360 2nd Generation. Verizon’s charging $299.99 for your choice of Black, Flame and White finishes starting tomorrow, January 7.

Big Red is also putting in the Blaze, Fitbit’s competing entry against the Apple Watch, for $199.99. You can now pre-order it in Black, Blue and Plum colors and grab some interchangeable bands, too. For what it’s worth, the carrier’s also announced a discount to the Fitbit Charge that it’s already selling, down $30 to $99.99 for the month.
