Moto 360 Sport review

At launch the original Moto 360 seemed an almost sci-fi take on the smartwatch, while the Moto 360 2015 brought it into the present with a more practical – frankly more normal – yet still stunning look.

It's easy, it's quick and the Moto 360 Sport also hooks onto GPS satellites very quickly, usually in well under 30 seconds in my experience – it seems that Motorola uses both a faster and less power-sapping GPS chip than Sony does in the SmartWatch 3.

This enables it to produce post-workout graphs that look about right, but comparing the results to those of a sensor at the gym shows the results are consistently off.

As ever with an Android Wear device, only Android phone users should seriously consider buying a Moto 360 Sport.

iOS support is fair, but the features available in third-party apps will be limited.

With its dynamic screen and GPS there's an appeal here that other Android Wear watches just don't have.
