The second generation of the Moto 360 smartwatch made some big improvements over its predecessor when it was released a few months back, chief among them having a design that was actually watch-like. Now, a fitness-focused version of that watch, the Moto 360 Sport, is finally coming in January.
When smartwatches became a real thing you could buy, and not just a 80s fantasy dreamed up by Casio and Seiko, they looked unmistakably like technology on your wrist. Tech companies were mired in making a wristputer, rather than a wristputer you actually want to wear. But this year, that’s all changed.
The Moto 360 was one of the first wearables that got us thinking, “Yeah, this whole smartwatch thing just might work.” It had some flaws, sure, but it was a functioning computer on your wrist and it wasn’t completely terrible. Now, Motorola is taking another stab at with the new Moto 360—cleaning up the design but…
Reliable leaker Upleaks posted three images today of Motorola’s new Moto 360 Android Wear lineup, including the newest addition to the family: the Sport.
Smartwatches are not endowed with the greatest battery life, thanks to the limited space available. But for the increasingly large number of circular smartwatches on the market, there’s one simple change that could yield a quarter more power: stop trying to fit rectangular batteries into round bodies.

People want their smartwatches to be fashion statements. And some have gone to extreme measures—including one enterprising, sandpaper-equipped individual—to make them uniquely their own. Now, Motorola is making it way easier to build your own Moto 360 smartwatch—no sandpaper required.
Smartwatches are good for certain things. Music. Notifications. Fitness monitoring. Social alienation (kidding!). But one activity they have consistently sucked at, ever since calculator watches first spelt naughty letters, is playing games. A proper version of Flappy Bird for Android Wear could change all of that.
Smartwatches enter a wearable realm that have long been dominated by luxury brands like Omega, Mondaine, Swatch, and Armani. It's these same brands that are also none to pleased about their own designs slowly spreading throughout the internet and onto our smartwatches.
The number of smartwatches on the market is growing by leaps and bounds, but we're still waiting to see just how many clever integrations our wrist-borne companions will net. It seems we can add Sonos to the list, for one.
The Moto 360 is the best Android Wear watch, and it just got better. A recent update has done wonders for its battery life, which had been the biggest knock against it.
First it was there. And now it's not. On Friday, a Redditor spotted a new addition to the Moto 360 lineup though a link emailed out by Motorola itself. The curious timepiece in question is the gold-rimmed device on the top row center.
When Motorola announced the Moto 360, the long-awaited Android Wear watch sold out in hours. Luckily Motorola announced today via a blog post that more will be available this Tuesday in the U.S. along with the new Moto X. However, you'll still need to be quick on the buy button as the company says supplies will still…
The biggest event in the tech world this week was, of course, the Apple event. But there was plenty going on outside of the Cupertino fruit stand. Here's the best stuff we wrote this week, including a visit to the place where NYC sends all of its poop.
Early this year when Google first announced Android Wear, it teased us with the Moto 360. It was by far the best-looking smartwatch we'd ever seen. Many months later it's here at last.
