Moto 360 2nd Gen Announced, Sport Version Coming

Android / Fitness & Health / Mobile / Wearables

After weeks of rumours and speculation, Motorola has officially launched the new Moto 360 Collection with more styles, features and longer lasting battery life. With this second generation, Motorola has refined the design of the Moto 360 and will have versions specifically designed for men, women, and fitness enthusiasts.

The new design will feature lugs specifically tailored for men and women, and newly styled polished bezels. The bands have received a design change as well, and the new quick-release bands will allow users to easily swap between leather and metal bands.

Running Android Wear, you’ll still be able to get the same notifications and important info on your wrist, respond to messages with your voice, and run various Android Wear apps to make life easier – including being able to start your vehicle or unlock your front door. The new Moto 360 also features Live Dials which are supposed to make it easier for you to place shortcuts to the apps you use most right on the watch face.

Motorola’s Moto Body is featured on the watch and the incredibly accurate sensors will allow you to track your heart rate, steps taken, and calories you burn.

For fitness enthusiasts, Motorola is also releasing the new Moto 360 Sport. With the Sport version, you can now leave your smartphone at home during your daily run. The built-in GPS will accurately track your speed, distance, and pace, while a heart sensor tracks other important vitals. You can even store and play music right from your wrist, and the new AnyLight hybrid display will make it even easier to see information on your watch clearly. The band on the Sport features strong silicone construction with special UV coating that wicks away moisture and resists fading or staining, while side ventilation channels help you stay cool. The Moto 360 Sport is also IP67 rated water resistant.

Both the new Moto 360 and Moto 360 Sport have even more battery life than the first generation and Motorola says they will offer up to two days of use.

The Moto 360 will be available in the fall, and details on Moto 360 Sport availability will be coming soon.
