U.K. readers – will you be picking one up? Let us know in the comments!
Original post (12/1): Alongside the second-generation Moto 360 at IFA 2015, Motorola announced a variant of the hit smartwatch for the fitness-minded folks out there. It was called the Moto 360 Sport, and up until now, the wearable has been completely MIA. But today, thanks to a new posting on Motorola’s Official Blog, the company has finally given us pricing and availability details on the new watch.
The Moto 360 Sport will be available in the U.K. and France on Friday, December 18th. U.S. customers will need to wait a bit longer, as the watch won’t be available on Motorola’s website until Thursday, January 7th starting at $299. On Sunday, December 10th, the 360 Sport will be available in Best Buy stores across the nation and in the new Moto Shop in downtown Chicago. The company says the watch will also launch in Brazil, Canada, China, Mexico and Spain sometime in the new year.
The Moto 360 Sport has essentially the same specs as the Moto 360 proper, with a few added features thrown in. It comes with a silicone band, a built-in GPS that works with Motorola’s Moto Body application, and a new feature called AnyLight which will allow you to see things much more clearly both indoors and out. The company says the display works just like a normal LCD display when using it indoors. But outdoors, it will reflect natural sunlight, making the screen much easier to read.
