Most of us have a busy schedule and a very heavy work load! We can hardly spare any time to take care of our bodies or look after our fitness. Yes working hard does get us money, but we lose our beauty and health if we do not keep ourselves fit. We cannot fully take advantage of the money we earn if we aren’t fit.

Fortunately, we do have some cool gadgets at our disposal. If you do not have time to go to a fitness center or hire a fitness trainer, you can always purchase a fitness band. Today, we are putting the Microsoft Band 2 and the Moto 360 Sport against each other to find out which one is worth your money. Although Moto 360 Sport is a sports watch and not a fitness band, it has features that make it almost as effective as one. The Band 2 is the latest fitness band released by Microsoft and looks great. Although these fitness gadgets will not magically burn your body fat or conjure big muscles, they can help you achieve your fitness goals the same way a real fitness trainer would help. So let us first take a look at the real deal! Just how pretty are these gadgets?

The Looks!

Both gadgets have a modern look, but the Moto 360 is a watch and looks like one. The Band 2 looks like something out of sci-fi movie.

The Moto 360 can be worn and used as a sports watch as well as a fitness gadget. If you are not a fan of modern gadgets, then Moto 360 is probably best for you. It is small and very comfortable. When you are not using it during your exercise, you can still wear it as it does look cool on a wrist. It has a circular face and can be used indoors or outdoors without a problem.

The Band 2 looks and feels like a proper digital tool or gadget. It has no circular face, but more of a rectangular one. It has a large display screen that gives out tons of information. Although it looks gorgeous while exercising, it might seem a little too big or impractical for daily usage. It is not a watch, but you can keep it on your wrist if you want to impress your friends with your cool gadget.

Features

Moto 360 Sport can estimate the amount of calories you burn during your workout routine. It can also note how long are you working out for. It has a built in pedometer and can track your heart rate as well. The sports watch can connect to any Android device using Android Wear and works with iPhone as well.

The Band 2 has a galvanic skin sensor, GPS, a 3-axis accelerometer, a UV sensor and an optimal heart sensor. It has companion apps for most platforms. You can also check your email, receive the latest news, get weather reports and get the best training and workout programs from Gold’s Gym with the Band 2.

If you are looking for a sporty watch, which can also help you track your fitness progress, than the 360 Sport is the best choice. If you looking for a modern fitness gadget that serves the purpose of a fitness trainer, then the Band 2 is the way to go.
