Motorola Moto 360 Sport (1st Gen) Features

  1. Display and Design
  2. The Moto 360 sport has a fantastic design that leaves it with an elegant and stylish appearance. It’s not the most outstanding appearance though, but it looks great. It’s actually great to see a smartwatch released over fours 4 years ago but still is loved by lots of smartwatch enthusiasts.

    The Moto 360 sport has a bright backlit LCD display, this consumes battery, but the watch is designed to conserve battery by switching and dimming display to a kind of analog display. You can learn more on Moto 360 sport update. The good thing about the display is that it’s easily visible under sunlight, so you shouldn’t have any problem reading the screen outdoors.

    By the side of the 360 sport is a single push-in button, the watch is also a touchscreen-enabled device. So you can be sure that navigating the interface won’t be a problem. The 360 sport has 1.56 inches wide screen size allowing you see more at a glance. The screen is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass which is scratch resistant. It’s not the best display though, but it’s no doubt great.

    The body of the Moto 360 sport is built to last with the most durable materials in the industry. It has a case made of aircraft-grade stainless steel and silicone straps which off course complements the sporty appearance, thus making it a suitable watch to wear while working out.

    Another good thing about the Moto 360 sports is that its easily customizable, you can swap the straps with your preferred choice of straps which should be 22mm in width. The watch face can also be customized, you can choose from preinstalled once or download from the play store.

    Moto 360 sport comes in various variants, black, white and red colors are available. While the Black color is best suitable for men, the white color will look nicer on ladies.

  3. Battery Life Is Okay
  4. The Moto 360 sport doesn’t have the best battery life when compared to other closest competitors such as the Gear S3 or Apple watch series 3, but the battery life is quite okay. The 360 sport comes with a 300mAh battery capacity which lets you go a full day on regular usage from a single charge. This will mean that the Moto 360 sport should be able to oversee your daily workouts.

    There is an update mentioned earlier which was aimed at improving the battery life of the 360 sport, unfortunately, though the update didn’t add that much difference to the battery life.

  5. Waterproof Rating/Protection
  6. The Moto 360 sport is rated IP67, this means that the watch is expected to survive water immersion up to 1 meter. You can wear the 360 sport under the rain or to your bathtub but certainly not to the pool or ocean. The Moto 360 sport is not recommended for tracking your swimming activities.

  7. Great Memory and Media Features
  8. Moto 360 sport comes with 4GB ROM onboard memory storage space. About 2.5 GB is available which allows you to download and store your favorite media files right on the watch. It’s a great feature that comes handy especially in situations when you need to listen to your favorite tracks while on the go. It also has 512 RAM to help fasten things up.

  9. Activity/Fitness tracking
  10. The Moto 360 sport is not the best choice for tracking your active life, the likes of Fitbit charge 3, Samsung galaxy watch or Apple watch series 4 will do a better job in that respect. However, the 360 sport comes with all the standard sensors you would expect to find in a modern-day smartwatch.

    It comes with an accelerometer, altimeter, gyroscope, a heart rate monitor and an inbuilt GPS. The watch can track your runs, calories and steps plus monitor your heart rate. The inbuilt GPS lets you track outdoor events in an effortless manner.

    Tracked stats can be viewed from the Moto body app, here is what the 360 sport can track;

    • Tracks steps, calories and distance covered.
    • With inbuilt GPS you can track outdoor events such routes, location and distance covered.
    • The PPG heart rate sensor tracks your heart rate.
  11. Staying Connected With Instant Notifications

The Moto 360 sport is a great companion for your phone, the watch allows you to stay connected to what matters. It syncs effortlessly with compatible devices so that you can receive an email, call and SMS, and third app notifications from your phones as they come in.

The Moto 360 sport also has WiFi which keeps you connected even when your phone is not near. This is actually great especially while working out when it becomes quite uncomfortable to carry your phone in your pocket.

The 360 sport is compatible with both Android 4.3 or later and iOS 8.2 or later.

Pros
  • Fantastic design.
  • It is built to last with durable materials.
