The Moto 360 taport, the more exercise-focused version of Motorola’s latest Android Wear smartwatch, will launch in Canada early next year, the Chicago-based company announced today.
Available to purchase first in the U.K. and France on December 18th, the Sport will make a trip across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States on January 7th before finally becoming available in Brazil, China, Mexico, Spain, as well as Canada, sometime in the new year. No word yet on Canadian pricing, though the device will retail in the U.S., for $299.
Featuring a silicone design that repels sweat, the Sport includes several features that set apart from its more traditional stainless steel sibling. With built-in GPS, Moto 360 Sport owners won’t need to bring along their smartphone to track things distance traveled on their latest run.
Moreover, Motorola claims its AnyLight tech makes the Sport’s display easy to read both in broad daylight as well as indoors.
The watch is also able to sync with a variety of Android-based fitness apps, including Motorola’s own Moto Body software, as well as third-party platforms like Google Fit, Under Armour Record and Fitbit.
