Motorola 360 Sport has finally arrived in India and is now available for sale online at Rs 19,999. This makes it markedly cheaper than both its competitors from the house of Samsung and Apple namely Gear S2 and Apple Watch.
Samsung Gear S2 is in fact the only smartwatch than can be compared to the Moto 360 Sport in terms of pricing and performance. However, it's worth noting that the smartwatch from the Korean electronics maker runs on Tizen OS as compared to the Android powered Moto 360. So without further ado let's find out what all is different between the two smartwatches and which one should you opt for.
Moto X Sport sports a larger display
