Motorola hasn’t said much about the Moto 360 Sport since it was announced in early September, but today we’re finally learning when we’ll be able to strap this Android Wear smartwatch on our wrists.
The Moto 360 Sport will hit the UK and France first, landing in those countries on December 18. It’ll then make its way to the US on January 7 when it arrives on Motorola.com and “select other online retailers.” A launch in Best Buy stores and the Moto Shop in Chicago will follow on January 10. Finally, Motorola says that the Moto 360 Sport will hit Brazil, Canada, China, Mexico, and Spain in 2016.
Pricing for the Moto 360 Sport will be $299.
The Moto 360 Sport is largely similar to the Moto 360 (2nd Gen.) that we’ve been able to buy for a while now, but the Sport does have a couple of notable features. The most obvious one is its silicone construction, but it’s also got side vents and UV coating to help wick moisture, resist fading, and keep you cool. The Sport also has an AnyLight hybrid display that combines a traditional backlit screen with front lit reflective tech. The watch can switch between the two based on the lighting conditions around you, making it easier to see your watch’s display.
While the Moto 360 (and other Android Wear smartwatches) have heart rate monitors that you can use during your workouts, the Moto 360 Sport looks to be the prime candidate to be your new exercise buddy.
