    Its great smart watch for me!, May 15, 2016

    Update:
    My watch died after using daily for couple of months. It wasn’t holding battery well, so I did factory reset and while restart it stuck in update. After that it simply refused to power on. Putting on charger it was just getting hot but looked like it was not charging. I contacted customer support on line and representative asked me to submit RMA. I did the same and within a week I received brand new watch. I was very impressed with the customer support service. I absolutely love this watch.

    Original Review:
    This watch worked for me very nicely. Its great for what I want from the smart watch at this time.

    It has been quite a while now since I first started using smart watches. My smart watch experience started with first generation Pebble Smart watch, then I backed for Pebble Time then moved to android wear on one of the extremely famous Huawei Smart Watch. And now using Moto 360 Sport since 5+ weeks.

    Would not mentioned pebble here, but my views on Moto 360 Sport are often in comparison with Huawei smart watch.

    While huawei is a nice watch, it isn’t for me. It looks too classy/formal for me. I did not like how it bleeds light on ambient always-on watch face and often distracts me in dark environment. When using metal strap on huawei watch I was not feeling the vibration, though just hear it making noise. I wanted to track sleep using watch but huawei was not comfortable wearing during sleep. Mean time I got an eye on moto 360 sport. I’m glad that I switched, I absolutely love the experience of using smart watch on this one.

    Despite of two major cons (two main that concerns me), I like this watch very much because the pros out-weighs them.

    Cons:
    – The silicone strap is lint magnet. Period.
    – Music over bluetooth headphones while running shutters. (Tried three different BT headphones, but all more-or-less shutters the music)

    Pros:
    – Excellent “any light display”. This is deal breaker for me. It turned out that I can use black fonts on white background of this watch as always on ambient display (without any additional battery drain as compared to white fonts on black background. And which is against android wear developer guidelines.. blah blah…). Clearly readable with a glance. This makes it look just like traditional LCD digital watches. But when I tilt my arm or touch the screen/button or notification arrives, bang, its a full color display smart watch. AFAIK there are only two android wear smart watches to date which supports such configuration, this one and Sony SW3. Display is 100% visible whether its indoor or outdoor, unlike huawei smart watch, which bleeds light when indoors and almost not readable when out in sunlight. Refer to attached pictures.
    – This is the most comfortable smart watch I have wore till date. With huawei smart watch, I tried 3 different straps but none of them were this comfortable. I wear moto 360 sport for around 20+ hours a day. Most days, I remove it only twice, I put it on charger in the morning while I shower and then put it again on charger before bed for around 15-20 mins so that battery is enough for my sleep tracking. The days when I don’t go out for run or to gym I don’t need to charge second time before bed.
    – The built-in GPS is plus for me. While this was not my primary reason to buy this watch, but I like how I can go run outside without phone and still track my run. I liked the built-in moto body app which fairly tracks my runs indoor on tread mill. Its little bit off from what is shown by tread mill, but after run it gives an option to edit the distance. I’m not serious runner, just a casual. The GPS tracking looks very accurate to me. I don’t think it is off by more than 0.1 miles like how many others have faced. Most of my runs are around 5k. I keep tracking of runs on nike plus running portal. I compared my old runs when I was using phone GPS to the new ones with moto 360 sport, they are similar for same route. I sync moto body runs to strava and then use SyncMyTracks android app to sync to Nike plus running app.
    – Heart rate sensor on Moto 360 sport is much consistent and way more better than on huawei. Huawei watch was not able to calculate heart rate unless my hand was still. While this one records heart rate every 5 mins (even while I sleep :D). It has no problem on calculating heart rate while running. I have noted that sometimes it shows +5 more than what was reported by treadmill on my indoor runs.
    – Watch vibration is much stronger and discreet than huawei (it was more of noisy than feeling the vibration on huawei).

    I’m a fan of android wear platform. It has so much to offer that most of them I don’t even care or use it regularly. My routine uses of android wear watch is as follows:
    – Notifications, notifications & notifications.
    – Control my phone’s sound profile with a tap and display…

    Great When it Works, Which is Unfortunately Becoming Increasingly Rare, July 5, 2016

    By RB (USA) –

    This review is from: Motorola Moto 360 Sport – 45mm, Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I’ve had the Moto 360 Sport for about 4 months now and it has been perfect for going on runs, tracking casual activity, and just general convenience. On runs I use Runtastic and Spotify on the watch so I don’t have to worry about taking my phone out at all. Technically it is only “water resistant” according to Motorola but I’ve worn it in heavy rain on several occasions (including a 10mi race) and I have not had any issues because of the water. Moto Body heart rate monitor and steps counter are accurate enough for me as well. I can be super lazy, so it’s so nice having the convenience of a smart device on your wrist at all times when at home. Love being able to access my Chomecast controls, ask “Ok Google” questions while I’m cooking in the kitchen, control my Hue lights (I use Tasker and Lampshade.io for this), and more right on my wrist without having to think about carrying my phone around with me. I don’t think a smartwatch is useful for everyone in the general population quite yet, but for my purposes it’s been fantastic.

    In the spirit of honesty, my original Moto 360 Sport that I bought from Amazon randomly died after just over a week of use. I have no idea how it happened but Motorola customer service was great and sent me a brand new one within a week. Yes, that was pretty disappointing and annoying but considering it seemed like a one-off situation (I could not for the life of me find anyone with a similar problem online and Motorola replaced it with no questions asked) and the replacement has been working 100% fine, I’ve gotten over it. Despite this setback I would still recommend the device to anyone looking for a fitness smartwatch.

    Edit 8/15: Nope I’m done. A few months after it originally died, it died yet again. Extremely frustrating but whatever, they sent me yet another replacement. Now two weeks after receiving the second replacement, IT DIED AGAIN. Out of no where. I am so fed up with this now, I wish I could just get my money back at this point. There is no reason I should have to mail back a $250 device every two weeks because it it dies for no reason. This is absurd.

    Smartwatch with excellent hardware, software needs more, January 13, 2016

    By wesley w kwok

    This review is from: Motorola Moto 360 Sport – 45mm, Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    This is my first smart watch and I am thoroughly excited about it. I purchased it today as it was the first day available. I haven’t been able to test a lot of functions, but will update this as I put this watch to the test. This and the Sony Smartwatch 3 are the only android smartwatches with standalone GPS and that is a big selling point for me. The wrist strap is comfortable and a silicone material, it is not interchangeable so buy the color you want and not regret! The charging cradle has a micro usb port in the back so you can easily plug in the cradle when not charging your phone.
    The watch feels solid and durable, the screen is 45mm and as of right now I could not find a screen protector for it in stores. I’m going to make one with a universal screen protector and exacto knife as I order one from Amazon. Now I’m not sure if it was advertised online or not, but I purchased it from Best Buy and when the associate rang me up he included a $50 gift card. What a deal! Hence I’m writing this as a brief and first impression review so maybe you can take advantage of it. Do go ask first before you buy. Updates to follow as I experiment with this piece of new gear.

    **Update**
    I’ve had the Moto 360 sport for a week now and I like it a lot. This watch is a Smartwatch with GPS, Bluetooth, HR, accelerometer, etc. Not a GPS watch that is Smartwatch. The focus is an android watch with the ability for the casual runner to track their runs. If you plan on using the Moto 360 sport for a marathon this may not be for you. If anything, the software needs to improve and not the watch itself. I have not found an app to track workouts at the gym.

    After a full day with occasional use the battery was at 40% and that included a 24 minute run. You’ll want to charge it when going to bed, but it does charge fast. I’ve also loaded music through the watch and was able to play music. You use Google music to transfer your MP3s to the watch. With my Jaybird Bluebuds X the bluetooth connection had no issues and did not skip. Basically you can go for a run with just your watch and bluetooth headphones and be able to track your run.
    Through the moto body app it’ll give you info such as distance, time, pace, heartrate, calories burned, mile splits, heart rate zones.

    PRO
    -Display is easily readable in both bright and dark
    -Bluetooth, GPS worked with no issues
    -Battery is sufficient for most (The casual user. Heavy users may need to charge)
    -Stylish and comfortable

    CONS
    -Straps are lint magnets, removable straps would be ideal
    -Not enough apps to take advantage of the hardware. Android wear needs to improve
