PROS

  • The Moto 360 Sport watch features an attractive, sporty design and is comfortable to wear.
  • Its AnyLight Hybrid Display is visible in almost any kind of light, indoors or out.
  • The built-in GPS works well, so you can run without bringing a phone along to track your route.

CONS

  • The silicone bands cannot be swapped out, and they attract plenty of dust, dirt and lint.
  • The Moto 360 Sport only tracks steps and running; it does not include features for tracking alternate activities such as biking.
  • The battery often doesn't last a full day when the GPS is used.
Motorola’s Moto 360 Android watches were well received for their sophisticated looks and ease of use, but they weren’t always well equipped for the active user. Enter the Moto 360 Sport, Motorola’s Android Wear watch that’s designed for users who like to move--or more specifically, run. The Moto 360 Sport is a smartwatch at heart; it runs the same Android Wear software that delivers smartphone notifications to your wrist, but it adds sweat-friendly silicone bands, GPS for tracking runs, and a new “AnyLight Hybrid Display” that’s easy to see in any light.

In other words, this smartwatch can come to the gym with you; just don't bring it into the shower afterward. This, dear friends, is what we in the business call a "bonehead move."

It’s clear that this device isn’t meant to be paired with a suit jacket or even a shirt and tie — that’s what the standard Moto 360 is for. Instead, the Sport aims to bridge the gap between smartwatches and fitness trackers, and look good while doing it.

You'll also get a strap that picks up dust and fluff like no other smartwatch we've come across. The black version, that we've used, is the most guilty of this grimy crime.

But — and you knew there was a but — right now the watch doesn’t track anything other than your overall daily activity, and indoor or outdoor running. Motorola says it will be able to do more in the future, but won’t give a timeline for when it might track things like indoor and outdoor cycling, or "other" workout sessions (like cardio machines, weight lifting, or yoga).

The elegant style and broad customization features of the standard Moto 360 are gone. Battery life is worse when you use the watch for its intended purpose (tracking runs). It’s bigger and bulkier, but no more dust or water resistant.

A 30-minute run with the GPS dropped the battery down to 85 percent. After an hour run it was down to 60 percent. That's a problem.

Going back to the AnyLight Hybrid display, I love it. The display is very viewable in any lighting I found myself in, including direct indoor and outdoor lighting, and when compared to other devices, it gets exceptionally bright when you need it to.

Unlike almost the majority of Android Wear smartwatches, the Moto 360 Sport's bands are integrated with the body. This silicone sheathing is adhered to the main watch and not removable, so you better be happy with your color choice.

Comfort-wise, it's our favorite Moto 360 yet. We're perhaps rare fans of silicone bands. It's a no-nonsense band that doesn't require maintenance; you just wear it and forget it.

It may look like a toy watch, but it actually takes the best things about a serious fitness tracker and a serious smartwatch and marries them fairly well: the silicone band is comfortable and sweat-resistant, the display is designed to be visible in sunlight, and it's pretty lightweight at 1.9 ounces.

Using the Moto 360 Sport outdoors is a dream. New York City hasn’t been getting a whole lot of sunny days, but when it is bright out, the display is easy to read without manual adjustment. It’s also not too glaring.

It manages to be a (semi) useful fitness tracker, and does it while still being a damn good, honest-to-God-smartwatch, but if you’re a serious athlete with a serious training plan, the Sport can’t (quite) replace a dedicated fitness watch—the heart-rate problem and poor software are massive deal-breakers.

However, the silicone picks up dust and lint at an incredible rate. It pretty much always looks kind of gunky, and it doesn't feel like I expect a $300 watch to feel.
