Motorola's Moto 360 Sport wearables have been around since 2015, and now they receive a long-awaited firmware update that arrives more than a year after Android Wear 1.5 arrived.

Thanks to Android Wear 2.0, the Moto 360 Sport allows its users to check and download apps directly via On-watch Play Store. The launcher and card stream have a new design thanks to the visual optimizations that arrive with the new firmware. When pressing the side button, the apps are displayed in an arc, and the user can change their order as needed. The battery life is now better thanks to the Lightweight Doze mode, while Google Assistant is a part of the upgraded user experience.   

In addition to the above, the Android Wear 2.0 firmware for the Motorola Moto 360 Sport smartwatch also comes with multiple bug fixes and minor tweaks without an obvious impact for most users. 

Those using the standard Moto 360 who did not upgrade their wearables to Android Wear 2.0 yet should do that since the update for them has been around for a while already.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
