Staying fit and meeting fitness goals is so much easier with the second-generation Moto 360 smartwatch. It has a Moto Body feature that estimates calories burned, shows heart rate patterns, and gives fitness tips.q

The new Moto 360 comes with the Moto Body activity tracker, which works perfectly with a companion app which can be downloaded free on Google Play and App Store right into a compatible smartphone to stay active and live better. Moto Body tracks daily activities, keeps users motivated with timely daily progress notifications, and even offers personalized insights for a healthier lifestyle.

Moto Body is a very useful app, but seldom do people want to bring smartphones during workouts. With the Moto 360, all the fitness information that users need is accessible at a single glance. This smartwatch stays connected to the smartphone via WiFi, even if the smartphone is not with the user. Offering continuous heart rate measurements and enhanced calorie calculation, this wearable device lets users track their steps using the built-in pedometer, as well as monitor calories burned, distance traveled, and heart-rate patterns for the whole day.

Switching over to the companion app in the smartphone is easy, too—users can view graphs of their heart activity, steps, and calorie burn data in weekly, monthly, and yearly spreads to analyze their activity trends over a specific period of time.

After compiling all the tracked data of a person’s fitness activities, the Moto Body app can provide a deeper analysis for smart, personalized insights and fitness tips. Like a fitness coach, it tells users how close they are to their goals, as well as gives links to useful articles. All the activity information gathered by the Moto 360 will be synthesized and analyzed to help users set achievable and measurable goals throughout a specific period of time. Fitness buffs who complete the User Profile in the app are able to get more accurate analysis and coaching.

To start an activity, users just have to tap on the screen of the Moto 360 and say, “Okay Google, track my workout!” Or, to check one’s heart rate, one just needs to say, “Ok Google, what’s my heart rate?” The voice control functionality comes in really handy, and not only for fitness related questions or instructions. A user can schedule a meeting, dictate a note or send a text by simply saying “Ok Google” without having to pause his or her treadmill session, and even when out of Bluetooth range.

The Moto 360 is also compatible with the Runkeeper app, ranked as one of the best running apps in the world. Simply download the app from the Google Play Store into a smartphone, sync with the Moto 360, and get ready to run, cycle, or start a workout.

Creating the perfect running, cycling, or gym playlist with the Moto 360 is easy, too. With the Google Play Music app, users can store up to 3.5GB of music and podcasts right on the Moto 360, and connect Bluetooth headphones in to get started on a fruitful and enjoyable fitness routine.

The new Moto 360 is sleek and stylish, perfect for users who want their fitness companions to be wearable in and outside the gym. This water- and dust-resistant smartwatch is precision-crafted from aircraft-grade 316L stainless steel and scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.
