Moto Body gets continuous heart rate tracking on Moto 360 (2015), 360 Sport

An update is now rolling out to both the Moto 360 (2015) and Moto 360 Sport, adding improved heart rate tracking for the Moto Body app, the May security patch update and more.

Here's the skinny on what's new in this update:

  • Moto Body enhanced calorie calculation: Moto Body now takes heart rate into account when calculating calories burned.
  • Moto Body heart rate continuous measure: Heart rate measures in Moto Body are now continuously updated, you don't need to tap to re-scan while you are in the app.
  • Security updates: Includes the updates of Android monthly security bulletin until May 1st 2016
  • Stability Improvements: Includes changes that fix bugs and improve stability.

As far as version numbers are concerned, this update bumps the watches up to software build MWD49B. While the update may take some time to roll out to everyone, you can manually check by heading to your watch's Settings menu.

  • Just in time (delivered) to get my free 360 sport from the Moto X Pure edition sales a few days ago. The flame color is nice for the summer!
  • It's a great sports watch. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Agreed, and it's a great all around smart-watch. Light, durable. Battery life is pretty good. The screen is what I am loving. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I got in on the same deal, waiting for delivery myself, also went with the flame orange!
  • May security patch. Lol
  • They added back in the 'Restart' option. Which in my case is handy due to the Weather dial always blank in the morning after getting off the charger
  • That's great! I hope my Urbane 2 gets that option. Was really annoyed it was removed from my old G Watch with the MM update because the G Watch doesn't have any buttons and to turn it back on I needed to poke a thing into the tiny button on the back. Android is not stable enough to not need a restart function, IDK what Google is thinking removing the restart button.
  • At least I'm not the only one with this exact same issue every morning!
  • I didn't realize that Android wear watches got security patches. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I love the design!
  • Can you sync the moto health data to google fit?
  • I was going to ask the same thing.
  • Yes, you can. You have to enable data sharing to Google Fit from the Moto Body app on your phone.
  • Would be nice if they can update their phone too! My watch now has Android 6.0.1 and May security patch but my Moto X Pure (which my watch is synced to) is still on Android 6.0 and Feb security patch. Posted via the Android Central App
  • ok, now with the continuous heart tracking, I'd like to see how it compares to the Fitbit Blaze.
  • When I tap on System Updates in the About menu, I get the error message "Unfortunately, Google Play Services has stopped.". Anyone else seeing the same thing? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I looked down at my watch and there it was ready to install. How'd you know?
