Motorola brings to Brazil the smartwatch clock your sporty: the 360 Sport Bike. The second generation of the smart brand watch arrives shortly after your submission in the United States, at the beginning of December 2015. To tell you the truth, we were hoping that he would come to the Brazilian market, because the company had already announced in a post on your blog, but we didn’t know the exact day.
We all know more or less what the sports smartwatches offer (being very clear: they are major hubs of notifications), so let’s start with that Motorola offers different in your sports model.
It comes with a built-in GPS, which can be useful to monitor the path of your race, making your watch a little less dependent on the smartphone. The bracelet is fixed and is made of silicone.

It consists of a central physical activity information, which can also be synchronized with some physical activity, apps like Google Fit, Fitbit, MapMyRun, among others. The anylight of the device screen is: independent adapts hybrid of local lighting. In sunny environments, for example, the display gets dark background with white accents.

Another differentiator of the appliance is connected to the heart rate monitoring during physical activity. While most of the devices requires an active command, the Bike 360 Sport promises to inform in a chart all the time you spent in different rates of heartbeat. If this is accurate, it is possible to detect a problem of the heart, in the case of significant peaks and low heart rate.
