Moto 460 Sport Review in First Impression: Moto 360 Sport is an Android Wear smartwatch from Motorola which was presented for a review this week. The original Moto 360 sport was the first Android wear in the market then in 2014. But as time went there were other wearable devices that were released in the market. But Motorola proved its worth that it could still make compelling watch with the 2nd Generation Moto 360 which arrived in the market. The Moto 360 Sport was unveiled alongside the Moto 360 2nd Gen. The watch is basically a fitness-friendly watch. It is quiet different from the original version in terms of display and design and also has some added software feature. Let us have a look at all the features.
Moto 460 Sport Review
Design: whenever a new Android Wear device is launched ‘fitness tracking’ is used by the manufacturers to add a selling point to their devices. It is very evident from the design itself that this watch is not to be paired with a shirt, suit or even a tie. This watch works on bridging the gap fitness trackers and smartwatches and also keeping in mind that it looks good. We are sure of the part that it looks really stylish with not too big or bulky look. It has a very comfortable premium silicone rubber strap which you can war anytime with much ease. The sport comes in three colour options which are Black, Flame Orange and White.
Display: The display of the watch is 1.37-inch along with AnyLight Hybrid Display and Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The dimensions of the watch is 1.37” (35mm), 263ppi (360 X 325). The display of the Moto 360 sport differs from the Moto 360 (2nd Gen.) as it has a standard IPS LCD display and Moto 360 sport chooses AnyLight hybrid display. This enables the watch with light reflectiveness which means automatically adapting to the natural light. When you are at home the watch seems to be a normal like any old LCD screen. Once you go outside the “hybrid” part starts working to reflect the light to make the screen readable. This AnyLight feature is by far the best in this watch which enables us to see the watch in both dim and dark light adjusting the screen. This makes the device stand out from the other wearables.
