This $299 USD smart wearable comes loaded with Android Wear and features heart rate monitoring, GPS, as well as a music player.

Motorola released the Moto 360 smartwatch earlier this year, and now the Sport model is ready to hit the market. Compared to its standard sibling, the Moto 360 Sport brings in GPS and various fitness tracking capabilities, as well as a sweatproof build.

Motorola Moto 360 Sport needs no smartphone around to act as a music player, so it is the perfect companion for jogging or working out. Its GPS and heart rate monitor work seamlessly with Moto Body, while the watch is fully compatible with Android fitness apps such as MapMyRun, Under Armour Record, Google Fit, Fitbit, or Strava. According to Motorola's latest official blog post about it, the Moto 360 Sport offers one day of autonomy even with Ambient Mode turned on (the time is always displayed).

Customers in the UK and France will get the new Moto 360 Sport starting December 18 while the US market will only get it next year. Priced at $299 USD, this wearable will be available beginning January 7 via Motorola.com and various other online retailers.Three days later, it will reach the Moto Shop in downtown Chicago and Best Buy stores nationwide.

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.
