Moto 360 Sport Variant Leaked in Images; Features Tipped
While until now leaks and rumours suggested the next-generation Moto 360 smartwatch to arrive in two sizes, a new set of leaks now suggests a Sport variant of the watch as well. The leaks reveal some of the features and also a couple of images showing the new variant.
According to images tweeted by tipster @upleaks on Monday and Tuesday, the Moto 360 ‘Sport’ version would arrive in Black, White and Orange rubber bands and would as a fitness tracker let users know about the time taken, miles covered, speed, and even blood pressure per minute during activities. The previously rumoured Moto 360 Small and Moto 360 Large are also seen in different leather and metal band options.
A second tweet added that the watch would feature a “Hybrid Display optimised for outdoor use”, has 3ATM (atmospheres) water resistance, GPS and barometer. The second tweet also shows the Moto 360 Sport with a different watch face.

Design-wise, while the crown button is seen at the same 2 o’clock position but there are no external lugs as seen in metal versions. The band merges with the smartwatch’s body, while a separate dial is visible on the side.
Furthermore, the tipster on Tuesday also revealed the alleged sizes of the Moto 360 Large and Moto 360 Small, variants which have been rumoured before. The smaller version is said to sport a 1.37-inch display, 42mm body, and 20mm band, while the larger version would feature a 1.55-inch display, 46mm body and 22mm band.
It has also been rumoured that while the Moto 360S variant will be backed by a 270mAh battery, the Moto 360L would feature a larger 375mAh battery. In comparison, the existing Moto 360 model features a 320mAh battery. We are yet to hear an official launch date from Motorola for the Moto 360 successor.
