The Moto 360 is set to get a complete refresh at IFA later this week, and up to this point we’ve only seen what look to be two variants of the device. There’s apparently a smaller watch and a larger watch (reportedly called Moto 360S and Moto 360L, respectively). Now, well-known leakster Upleaks is giving us a look at a “Sport” variant of the smartwatch, featuring bright colors and some kind of fitness tracking software on board…

As you can see the Sport variant apparently comes in three different colors: Black, White, and Orange. And while the leaks of the regular second generation Moto 360 show a metal body and bands that come in various styles, the Moto 360 Sport seems to fall in line with other sport watches. There’s what looks to be a polyurethane body that wraps all the way around the face, as well as a polyurethane band. There’s also apparently a fitness tracking app or watch face showing heart rate, a timer, and other features.
According to another Upleaks tweet, the Moto 360 Sport will be shipping after the standard second generation 360 hits the market. While the standard model is expected to be available in September (perhaps on September 8th?), the Moto 360 Sport will purportedly not see availability until sometime in November. That’s definitely a little late in the year, but it gives Moto another chance to push the 360 right as the holiday season is kicking off.
In addition to the Moto 360 Sport leaks, Upleaks today posted more images of the large and small standard Moto 360 variants. As you can see above, they both ship in a variety of styles and colors, with band options ranging from metal link bracelets to classy brown leather. Interestingly, the top row of devices — assumably the Moto 360S — seems to be aimed at females with the inclusion of rose gold colors and white watch faces.
To top off the Moto 360 leaks before the device is officially announced, Evleaks has come out to share another pair of renders. There’s not much new to see here other than a clear look at the default Moto watch face. And, not to be forgotten (and as we saw previously), you can still see very clearly that the device sports the flat tire of old. Sad, especially considering the fact that LG doesn’t seem to have that problem.
Motorola and a few other Android OEMs are planning to launch new Android Wear devices at IFA Berlin later this week. It’s going to be a crazy ride of new wearable goodness, but it’s still yet to be seen who will come out the winner. Stay tuned.
