Moto 360 Sport looks promising

The Moto 360 Sport is one of the newest Android Wear smartwatches that's been announced recently. Unlike the 2nd generation Moto 360, the Sport version includes built-in GPS and uses the Motorola AnyLight hybrid screen display so that you can easily read the screen in bright sunlight. I support Motorola's decision to include an ambient light sensor at the expense of the "flat tire" look on the screen. I'm a big believe of function over form (and some may disagree). In order for smartwatches to be compelling, they must offer meaningful functionality, even if they compromise a bit on looks.

I'm eager to see how this Sport smartwatch performs when it's released later this year. It could really be a winner if it offers robust battery life and decent water resistance (hopefully it's better than IP67, but we'll have to wait and see).
