The Moto 360 Sport adds a few features not seen on the current Moto 360 smartwatches. The silicone construction will not absorb sweat and will not fade or stain. It adds a built-in GPS (and retains the optical heart rate monitor) as well the new Motorola AnyLight technology that promises to improve readability both indoors and outdoors by reflecting natural sunlight. On the software side, it offers more fitness tracking features.

The Moto 360 Sport will not be customizeable via Moto Maker like the Moto 360. It will only be available in Black, Flame Orange or White.
