Motorola’s new Moto 360 is official, and with multiple size options, as well as men’s and women’s designs, the smartwatch offers a lot more variety than last year’s model. But coming into this launch we were expecting at least one more option from Motorola, and while not all the details are available just yet, the company has gone ahead with drawing the curtain back on the rugged-looking Moto 360 Sport.
In addition to the features users can expect from the standard new Moto 360, the 360 Sport makes a few key changes. One is the addition of a GPS receiver, allowing users to track runs or bike routes, while getting real-time data about their speed.
Motorola’s other important change concerns the Moto 360 Sport’s screen, and instead of a regular backlit LCD, the manufacturer has given the smartwatch what it calls its AnyLight hybrid display – what sounds like a transflective component that combines backlit operation with the ability to take advantage of ambient light when available, all without washing-out the screen.
While the regular new Moto 360 is open for pre-orders today, the Moto 360 isn’t quite ready for its retail debut just yet. As a result, Motorola hasn’t shared important details like pricing nor a release date, but promises to follow up with that data soon.
