Moto 360 Sport review – The Verge

If you have an iPhone, you can still pair the phone to the watch,  receive notifications from your smartphone, and use the built-in Moto Body Running app on the watch. And you’ll still see your daily activity data on the sport-specific watch face. But the only way, currently, to see your workout data is to view it on the watch itself, with no options for sharing the data to iOS apps.

Let’s assume you have an Android smartphone. In general, Moto’s own apps offer the most optimal / least complicated experience with this watch. There’s the Moto Body app (also available on the non-sport smartwatch) that shows you a snapshot of your steps, calorie expenditure, heart rate, and more. The companion Moto Body app on Android gives a surprisingly granular view of your data, and with multi-colored check marks signaling whether you’ve met your goals in various categories.

Running watch, 
not a sport watch

The Moto Body Running app is specific to the sport watch, and it’s really the main event. It’s what starts when you hit the shortcut “Start” button on the watch face, and it’s what shows you your total workout time, pace, lap time, heart rate, and heart rate zone during runs, all with a few easy swipes across the reflective display.

There are some options to run micro versions of third-party apps on the watch, like Strava, but they’re generally pretty limited on smartwatches, acting as little more than remote controls for stopping and starting activities. And through the Moto Body app on Android, you can opt to share data to Google Fit, Strava, UA Record, and Fitbit.
