Here is the Sport edition, featuring what looks like a sweat-resistant plastic band:

There’s no official word yet on whether the next-generation Moto 360 watches will be compatible with iPhones, although I’d be quite surprised if they weren’t.

The Moto 360, which was released shortly after the announcement of the Android Wear operating system, was arguably the first smartwatch to get some traction with consumers — largely because of its round shape.

But that was before the launch of the Apple Watch. Motorola and other Android smartwatch makers are now under pressure to announce next-generation smartwatches that can compete.
