Moto 360 Sport
Along with the new Moto 360, Motorola announced the Moto 360 Sport. This variant features a special “AnyLight hybrid display” that promises to offer great viewability in bright sunlight. It switches from front-lit reflective mode for outdoor viewing to traditional back-lit indoors. It doesn’t have the same lugs as the other models, but rather a sealed plastic sports band. It also features GPS to track your runs.

Moto X Pure Edition hits the U.S.
A few weeks ago, when Motorola announced the new Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and Moto G, we let you know that the Play won’t come to the U.S. at all, and when the Style comes here it’ll be called the Pure Edition. Well, the Pure Edition begins preorders on Wednesday, September 2, with the phones shipping later in the month. Prices start at $399, and the phone should support all major U.S. carriers.
