Moto 360 Sport Watch Review and Giveaway (Running Coaches’ Corner)

I am so excited to kick off the Running Coaches’ Corner Link Up with my Moto 360 Sport Review as well as a giveaway where you can win one of your own!

I and the other bloggers and fellow running coaches are so excited to bring you the best running information and posts so that you can get more out of your running and training. Today, I am talking about one of the most important tools that a runner and health conscious person can have: a GPS watch. But the Moto 360 Sport is much more than that! 
Check out my Moto 360 Sport Watch Review and enter to win your own in the giveaway! This watch is more than just GPS: it is perfect for marathon training to just living a fit and healthy life. Get the details at Suzlyfe.com

Getting MOTOvated: Walking for Fitness

As I mentioned on Monday, I am working to get back to running, and that starts with walking. Just as with easy running, so often people discount the so-called “easier” aspects of fitness: easy running, cross training, and walking. But I can tell you right now that walking, and hill walking in particular, is no joke. In fact, it is one of my favorite ways to help my clients coming back from injury (or those who just need a day off!) keep their cardiovascular endurance up as well as to start redeveloping running muscles before they move to the impact of running. 

As I work back into running, I have to redevelop my gluteal strength, engagement, and activation, and one of the best ways to do that is by walking hills. An easy hill walking workout for the treadmill? Warm up for 5-10 minutes of easy walking on a very low incline (around 1%) and then increase the incline by 2% every 2 minutes, or 1% every 1 minute up to 10% and then back down to 5% and back up. Repeat for as much time as you have!

So #MOTOvated to try this simple hill walking treadmill workout! #runchat #fitfluential #ad Click To Tweet

Remember to practice great form–just because you are walking doesn’t mean that this will be easy. And speaking of running by effort–base this workout off of effort (aim for moderate-hard).

I love the Moto 360 Sport because it works indoors and outdoors, which is perfect while we are having the crazy weather here. The Moto 360 Sport is truly more than just a GPS device–it is a lifestyle device. And my lifestyle? Is heavy on the fitness, activity, music, and social media. Luckily for me, the Moto 360 Sport can do all of this via Wifi and Bluetooth.

Moto 360 Sport : The GPS Device that Is So Much More

If you are a new reader to the blog (hello!), I had a terrible injury this past fall that majorly sidelined me. As in, I am still not back to running at full weight! Get the full update here, and see my post on what I have learned during my injury. But now that I am getting back on my feet, I am bringing out the pedometer for the first time in months, and as I start running again, pacing will be more important than ever so that I don’t over stress the bone.

MotoBody on the Moto 360 Sport keeps you up to date with everything you need for an active lifestyle! Check out the full review at suzlyfe.com

Luckily for me, the Moto 360 Sport has a pedometer, GPS, and so much more! Seriously, there are too many features for me to describe here so I am going to touch on just a few today!

Perfect for Marathon Training and Workouts

As a running coach, I use several different cues for my clients–from heart rate to pace, mileage to timed runs, and the Moto 360 Sport handles everything that I need of it without the nuisance of a heart rate monitor. Furthermore, it even continuously monitors your heartrate during your workout via the super helpful MotoBody app! Do you use Fitbit, Strava, Map My Run, or Under Armor Record? The Moto 360 Sport links seamless with those apps so that you never have to worry about updating your information. (and send it to your coach). 

The Moto 360 Sport Links up with your favorite Fitness apps so that you can seamlessly track your activity and running! Find out more at Suzlyfe.com

Have a hard workout on the docket? Keep notes on the watch to reference during your run. Or dictate notes on the run for later!

The Moto 360 Sport Goes Beyond GPS – A Smartphone on your Wrist!

Got a long run? Store your music, run with it, and control it on your wrist. Especially useful if you have your phone in a belt, or just want to leave your phone at home! Or download and listen to my podcast episode!

Social Media obsessed? Get instant updates from your wrist. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and More! Or put the world to the side with Theater Mode.

The Moto 360 Sport reminds you of appointments (PT appointments for me), lets you check the weather (we all know that it changes regularly this time of year!), and can even translate foreign languages for you. But just ask your coach what fartlek means. Trust me. 

You can even find a cab using it! Or find your phone… because we all know that we need that from time to time.

Send a text to your friends that you are going to be a little bit longer (I texted Alex at work yesterday while I was in bed to tell him goodnight. My phone was in the other room, but I just said “OK Google” and sent him a text!). This is perfect for rainy days so that you don’t get your phone wet–runners, you know what I mean.

    The watch is interesting, I use a Charge HR currently to keep up on my HR training. I just wish the display let me text, or view texts. Most of my interactions are text based and being able to respond to people, or read them as I go would be great. This is especially because I run for 3+ hours, that’s tough to be out of contact for, and switching music would be great! Thanks for the review!

    Looks like a really cool watch. I run between 50-60 miles per week and am currently training for Boston. I would love to give one of these a good workout and see what it can do. Does it sync to dailymile.com which is the site that I use to track my running miles? Good luck with working your way back to running, too. I broke my foot in August and was in a boot for 12 weeks and then had to work my way back. Walking (especially briskly and on hills) is no joke!

    My motivation sucks in the winter. This winter instead of being overly aggressive and giving up (like the past few years). I stuck with a run twice (even if it’s only 5 minutes) and yoga once per week goal. It worked a lot better and I usually did more than that.

    This is a great giveaway. I love my vivoactive, but this looks really sweet. I’ve done pretty good keeping up this winter. Doing a run streak with the new year really helped keep me going. Goals with some spring races is helping as well.

      This watch is super fun, and it does so much more than just track activity, which I love! Good luck with your run streak and races!

    Lately, I’ve been motivated most by setting some goals and letting my workout buddy know about them. I’ve got to go through with it, I don’t want to be a quitter. πŸ™‚ I’d totally use this watch. My runs are getting longer and I’m trying to mix them up a bit.

    Wow that watch does alot! I would love to upgrade from my old Garmin 10. Looks very simple too, which is always a bonus. Can’t stand complicated gadgets.

    I stick with my regimen in the winter unless it’s icy or a lot of snow. I stay motivated by working out with a partner so we keep each other motivated & accountable.

    I am #MOTOvated to stay young!! I stay with my usual routine in winter, but definitely scale back the mileage. This winter I didn’t do any runs longer than 6 miles (except for that little 15K in California on NYE, and I’m feeling good πŸ˜‰ Bring on the spring races!!

    I stick to using a treadmill indoors… My lungs are absolutely incompatible with running in cold air. Thought I was going to freaking die after a very short period of time

    Living in Florida means running isn’t too much of an issue in winter. I always try to keep a race or two on my calendar to keep myself motivated!
