PSA: Moto 360 Sport now available from the Google Store

When Motorola announced its new, second generation versions of the Moto 360 smartwatch, it also teased a more fitness-centric model called the Moto 360 Sport. While the regular 360 launched in time for holiday seasons shopping, the Sport didn’t land until significantly later. In fact, it only landed in the US — at Motorola and Verizon’s stores — last week.

For those who like to shop on Google’s own online store, you’ll be glad to know the Sport is now available to buy at Store.Google.com and costs $299.

For those who’ve been looking for an Android Wear device optimized for exercising, the Moto 360 Sport looks to be a great option. It comes with a durable, thick silicone strap and with a screen that adapts to surrounding brightness. It’s IP67 water and dust resistant and has a built in heart-rate monitor.

Key Specs: 

  • 1.37-inch 360 x 325 resolution AnyLight Hybrid Display
  • 45mm diameter case
  • 300mAh battery
  • Wireless charging (dock included)
