Motorola Moto 360 Sport pictured, could be launched in November
Perhaps inspired by Apple and its different Watch models (including a Watch Sport), Motorola is seemingly getting ready to release several new Moto 360 variants. Besides the Moto 360 2 - which should come in two different sizes - it looks like we'll also get a Moto 360 Sport.

The Moto 360 Sport was unveiled today by @upleaks, which also revealed the existence of the Motorola Bounce smartphone. As its name suggests, the Moto 360 Sport will be targeted at users who have an active life, offering fitness-oriented features. Unlike the Moto 360 2, the Moto 360 Sport has a somewhat rugged design, and might be available in at least three color versions: black, white, and orange.

According to @upleaks, the Moto 360 Sport should be released in November, while the Moto 360 2 is expected to hit shelves in September. It's said that the Chinese version of the Moto 360 Sport will support iOS devices, and we assume that the same will be true for the global model. As you may remember, Google has been working for quite some time to bring iOS support to Android Wear.

At the moment, there's no word on the specs and price of the Moto 360 Sport. But perhaps we'll hear more about this later this week at IFA 2015. Stay tuned.

I'd bet not. Probably several generations down the line. Apple doesn't vary design very much or quickly. In fact, I'd bet the next watch is virtually identical to this one aesthetically, with more CPU power and function, slightly bigger battery and maybe some new sensors. Kind of an iWatch S.

*crossing fingers* Please no flat tire, please no flat tire....

Sadly I don't think there's any chance when the renders already have it. A sport watch better be water proof. 3m minimum. A plastic band should be replaceable, they don't last more than a couple years max. I didn't like it on $50 watch so I won't have a $250 watch that is useless because the band tears. Same problem with fitbit and they are replacing them like crazy. I have multiple friends that gave up on fitbit because of rain/sweat and broken bands. After the second free replacement they just switched. Don't do the same old thing Moto. And fix the flat tire if you want a killer product. Plus add better battery life and possibly solar panel and kinetic recharge for much longer life. Precise motion tracking should sleep when motion is low and kick in more precision during continuous motion, with options to have GPS on, off, or periodic during workouts. Learning would also be nice where you can tell it what you were doing for the last 30 minutes and it will then auto log that activity. There are still so many features missing from fitness trackers. Fitbit has just scratched the surface and they're number one so I expect a lot more to come.

Really? kinetic recharge for much longer battery life. You have got to be kidding. Do you know how much space is taken up by kinetic charger? Not to mention you would have to be constantly jumping around like a chimpanzee in order to just get a constant flow of energy to keep the ram and CPU going. Never mind keep the screen on.

You realize it already has a vibration motor right? So instead of powering it you let it generate. If doing nothing more than adding the circuitry for charging to the motor would add 5%, then yes! Not Kidding! It's a fitness watch, you're going to jog with it (at least some of us are) Why not do anything possible to add battery life? And I was just giving some suggestions, so that between that and solar and maybe a wireless charger that was built into your desk and worked without removing the watch you could greatly increase life. Suggest something better if you're such a genius, rather than discarding ideas you don't even seem to understand (it still has a battery, you don't need constant current). And just because you don't move all day long doesn't mean people don't don't activities and jobs that cause them to move continuously. (kids, nurse, construction worker, do i really have to explain that there are more people in the world than just you?)

Hopefully they will add gps so you can actually use it for running

If it can hit around the $200 mark. It certainly will be a hit. Especially since it can work with iOS and Android.

Android should just establish two sizes and the tech companies should make standard sized "electonic unit" that can be inserted into the "watch carrier" (band, bezel, etc) that simply holds the "electonic unit" to your arm. Let established watch and fashion companies design and sell the "watch carrier units". Then, you can just snap in new/upgraded "electronic units' as they come out. Like a universal car mount.

Keep dreaming.
