Apple Watch vs Moto 360
Apple Watch unites the capabilities of an all-day fitness tracker and a highly advanced sports watch in one device you can wear all the time. It can track a wider variety of activities because it’s able to collect more types of data. It uses an accelerometer to measure your total body movement. It has a custom sensor that can measure intensity by tracking your heart rate. And it uses the GPS and Wi‑Fi in your iPhone to track how far you’ve moved.
Keep track of your steps and know your heart rate thanks to a built-in pedometer and heart rate monitor. Plus, only the Moto 360 heart activity app tracks your progress toward your goals using daily and weekly benchmarks.
Latest news about Apple Watch and Moto 360:
15.09.14. Motorola Moto 360 heart rate monitor works in background all throughout the day. Moto 360 smartwatch is finally here and it's the best Android Wear device with fitness tracker yet. Its heart rate monitor works in the background all throughout the day. We've seen heart rate monitors on Wear watches before, but those monitors work only on demand - taking readings only when you actively ask them to. In terms of day-to-day fitness tracking, that's not terribly useful. The Moto 360 offers a better method. Its heart rate monitor periodically checks your pulse in the background at regular intervals during the day. It then uses that data to give you detailed stats about your daily and weekly activity levels. It even has a custom app that can remind you to reach a specific goal of how long you want to be active in any given period.
10.09.14. Apple Watch wants to dominate the market for fitness trackers. Apple unveiled its new smartwatch Apple Watch today and one of its main features is comprehensive health and fitness tracker. The Apple Watch will track your heart rate and measure three separate categories of movement. The first is the "Move" ring, which measures the calories you've burned and tells you when you've hit your personal goal for the day. The "Exercise" ring captures more brisk movement, and closes when you've put in 30 minutes total each day. The "Stand" ring measures how often you break from the sedentary reality of parking your butt in an office chair all day, and closes when you've gotten up for at least one minute in twelve different hours during the day. It pairs with the barometer in the newest iPhones to track your climbs and claims it will be able to distinguish the intensity of your activity to better track the calories you're burning.
