Moto 360 Sport: Meet Your New Workout Partner


Moto 360 is a watch that makes time for you, allowing you to leave your phone in your purse or pocket and still get important information when you need it and want it. Now, with the all new Moto 360 Sport you can get everything you need for your run — and leave your phone at home.

With built-in GPS, heart rate monitoring and a music player, Moto 360 Sport has all the tools you need to hit the road and push for your personal best or just free your hands up to do more important things.


  • Designed for sport. Built to last: Push yourself to the limit without worrying about your watch. Strong silicone construction doesn’t absorb sweat and resists fading or staining, while side ventilation channels help you stay cool.
  • Built-in GPS keeps you going: Moto 360 Sport has built-in GPS that works seamlessly with Moto Body to measure your performance. Track your distance traveled, pace, lap times and more. There’s no need to carry your phone to know exactly how you’re doing.
  • Popular fitness apps1: Moto 360 Sport works seamlessly with Android™ fitness apps including MapMyRun®, Under Armour Record™, Strava, Google Fit and Fitbit™. Moto Body records your workout data and syncs with these apps, so your exercise history is always up to date.
  • Heart rate at a glance: Continuously track your heart rate during a run to monitor your performance. And with Moto Body, measure the time you spend in different heart rate zones to make sure you’re achieving your fitness goals2.
  • Brilliant, indoors and out: Motorola AnyLight is the world’s first hybrid display that lets you see things clearly both indoors and out. Indoors, it works like any beautiful LCD screen. Step outside and it reflects natural sunlight, making the screen easy to read.
  • Better view. All the way around: On a watch face, every millimeter counts. The classic round design of Moto 360 Sport features edge-to-edge glass and an exceptionally thin bezel, giving you the most viewing area in the least amount of space.
  • Wear it for life: Moto 360 Sport gives you the power of Android Wear™, so you can keep up with your entire life, not just your workouts. Read Gmail messages and calendar invites, reply to friends on WhatsApp, get up-to-the-minute traffic and weather reports, and so much more of what matters to you all while staying in the zone.
  • Music on the move: Sync your favorite playlists and podcasts from Google Play™ Music with your Moto 360 Sport, then listen to music on your run or at the gym without taking your phone along for the ride.
  • Just a little coaching: Receive spontaneous notifications throughout the day that keep you informed, up to date and inspired. Plus get a weekly email summarizing your progress, or even more detailed information using the Moto Body phone app.
  • All day battery. Even in Ambient Mode: The new Moto 360 Sport gives you better battery life than ever before. Now with Ambient Mode turned on, the time is always visible and the battery still lasts an entire day3.

Jonathan Adler Designs a Collection for Moto X Pure and Shares His Holiday Gifting Tips



This holiday season, Motorola has something for every style lover on your list, including an all new Moto X Pure collection designed by the iconic Jonathan Adler. The limited-edition collection features three eye-catching, stylish phones that Jonathan felt captured the spirit of Moto Maker, our online phone design studio.

The collection will be available for pre-order at Motorola.com/JonathanAdler beginning November 24, and will officially go on sale December 3 for $474.99 (32GB). To help round out the rest of your shopping list, we asked Jonathan to share his top holiday gifting tips for the style-obsessed friends and family in your life.

------------

Hey Moto fans, it’s Jonathan Adler here! I’m excited to be collaborating with Motorola. Like them, when I approach design, I encourage self-expression and ignoring the “rules” - and, I’m obsessed with my phone. So, why not embrace more choice when it comes to phone design? We all deserve phones as stylish as we are.

I’m sure many of you are thinking about your holiday gifting, so here are my tips for selecting the perfect gift for the design lover in your life.

  • Make it Personal: Give a gift that appeals to everyone's favorite person: themselves. Even the least vain person in your orbit won't say no to a cozy baby Alpaca throw with their initials on it. Soft, squishy and luxurious -– what could be better?
  • Think Outside the Gift Box: One of the best gifts I give myself every year is a trip to Capri each summer. If you're gifting a trip, try to find a little something for the recipient to open in advance – our Jet Set candles are available in squillions of scents and locales and provide an olfactory preview of your trip.
  • Be Unexpected: I think good gifts are any combination of the following: super thoughtful, super premium or super unique. I love the idea of taking something utilitarian that you use every day and jazzing it up – just like I did with my new designs for Moto X Pure Edition. If it's going to be in your hand 24/7, might as well make it chic and unique.
  • Bow & Go: I strive to make products with packaging that's as beautiful as what's inside. Just bow and go; when you're not spending an eternity wrapping it, you’ll have more time to devour the hors d'oeuvres at a holiday party.
  • Give Good Game: I love to give games, and not just because I'm a super competitive person. If the conversation ever starts to lag at a holiday party you can just whip out a game and vanquish your boring seat mate at a round of backgammon.

Happy shopping!

Ashton Kutcher Explores How Far You’d Go for #PhoneLove



They say love makes you do crazy things -- particularly when it comes to your smartphone.

Think about all the instances when you’ve placed your phone’s needs before your own -- the times you’ve found yourself crawling on dirty floors looking for an outlet to charge from, jumping out of bed in the middle of the night because your phone rings or chimes, or sticking your hand in a toilet because it slipped out of your pocket at precisely the wrong time. We sleep with them, eat with them, even shower with them. And do we need to mention the heartbreak felt when they’re dead, lost or worse, shattered by an accidental drop?

#PhoneLove is the intense and many times irrational relationships people have with their smartphones.

This isn’t bad, it’s simply true. To prove it, Ashton Kutcher conducted a series of real-world social experiments to see what happens when people are forced to choose between themselves and their phones. The purpose of these experiments is simple: to prove that people care about their phones more than they realize, but those phones aren't always loving them back.

Check out people being put to the test to see just how long they can go without touching their phones in this first #PhoneLove experiment:


At Moto, we believe you deserve a better mobile relationship with your phone. One that is reciprocal and two way. Unobtrusive, yet intuitive. Supportive, but not co-dependent. Where all the care and devotion you show is returned.

We’ll continue to share Ashton’s #PhoneLove experiments in the coming weeks to test this theory further. In the meantime, we want to hear about your cases of #PhoneLove on social! For better or for worse.

Start Up with ‘Stitch’: The Making of Motorola’s New Bootanimation



At Motorola, we design our smartphones and smartwatches to not only look and work great, but also feel great to the touch. Whether it’s the choice of a real wood grain or genuine Horween leather backs available across our Moto X line, or the various sizes and watchbands designed to fit all types of wrists on our Moto 360s, we always strive to deliver a user experience that’s uniquely tangible.

So when it came time to develop a new startup animation -- the animated Motorola logo that appears on your display when you turn your phone on -- we approached renowned product designer Peter Crawley, best known for his “Stitched Illustrations,” in which he hand-pierces paper with a pin, and then stitches it with a needle and cotton thread, resulting in pieces of art that you can almost feel just by looking at them. This felt like a perfect match with our innovative design spirit at Motorola.

“I knew from the start that I wanted the finished piece to have a real tactile feel to it -- for the customer to be able to see the texture and natural qualities of the paper and thread,” Crawley explains. “We played a lot with the existing Motorola color palettes, but felt that the blues and yellow used would not only work best with the screens but also really highlight the textures of the natural materials. The paper stock is sourced from a traditional English paper mill and is usually used for watercolor paintings, but it had such a great texture that is acts as a rich canvas for my work, too.”

So how does a primarily visual artist make the jump into digital animation? Check out the video below to get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of our new “Stitch” boot-up.


“It was the first time I had worked on an animation of this type, but the animation team was very experienced in this space and did a fantastic job in pulling together the concept and making the final piece exactly what we envisaged,” adds Crawley. “Seeing my work come to life in this way is really rewarding, but knowing it will be in people's hands all over the world is absolutely amazing.”

Look for "Stitch" on your Motorola device soon. For details on when upgrades will be coming to you, please refer to our software upgrade page for the latest and specifics by country, or follow G+ posts of our release announcements.​

Today, it's starting to roll out on the retail 2015 Moto X Style (3rd Gen) in both Brazil and India, and on the retail 2014 Moto X (2nd Gen) in Brazil retail.

Motorolans Give Back to Chicago



Motorolans are dedicated to solving problems that improve people’s lives, whether it’s through the mobile devices we create or through giving back to the communities where we live and work. In that spirit, today 300 Motorolans are giving back to the community through Motoserve, our annual day of service at Motorola Mobility’s global headquarters in Chicago.

The Motorola Mobility Foundation -- Motorola’s charitable and philanthropic arm -- has partnered with Chicago Cares for the second year in a row to try to make a difference in some of the city’s under-resourced neighborhoods through hands-on service. Motorolans are providing lunch to needy senior citizens, beautifying schools and community spaces with murals and fresh paint, and acknowledging the service and sacrifice of our nation’s veterans with transition and aid kits.

We’re proud that Motorolans are providing their time and talent in the community today. Some of the specific ways that our volunteer teams are making a difference are:

  • Humboldt Park - Casa Central: Hosting a Kids Olympics, organizing a Casino Day and adding a fresh coat of paint to the Auditorium, a room that is in use nearly every day of the year.
  • Back of the Yards - Hedges Elementary: Creating colorful mosaics, painting classrooms, and constructing bookcases in an effort to beautify the school for students and staff.
  • Near West Side - Hope Institute: Giving the school a fresh look by painting the cafeteria and creating four colorful murals throughout the hallways.
  • Bronzeville - Lincoln Perry Apartments: Spending quality time with senior residents while cooking and serving a meal, playing Bingo and making fleece blankets.
  • Merchandise Mart - Motorola Mobility: Assembling 350 Welcome Home Kits for Veterans and Active Service Members to thank them for their service and help them set-up their new homes. Collecting, sorting and packaging close to 1500 hats and gloves that will keep Chicago's children, adults and seniors warm this winter.

Today’s activities are part of a year-round series of volunteer programs offered by the Motorola Mobility Foundation to Motorola’s employees. The Foundation’s mission is to catalyze the innovative use of technology to improve lives and communities. It does this by leveraging employee expertise and talent, providing funding, and partnering with nonprofits, learning institutions, startups, government, corporate and civic organizations.

Moto Shop: Chicagoans get an Experiential Retail Shop this Holiday Season



Smartphones and wearables are the most personal accessories we own, and we want to make the shopping experience for Moto devices equally personal.

That’s why we’re introducing Moto Shop: the first-ever Motorola experiential boutique in the heart of downtown Chicago -- our hometown. We’ll open on Saturday, November 7, just in time for your holiday shopping.

Looking at products online can be fun, but nothing compares to experiencing them in person, especially when it comes to your smartphone or smartwatch. But don’t expect phones on display outlining technical specs -- Moto Shop is a hands-on, interactive environment with dedicated areas that bring to life our marquee products and device features.

Here’s a peek at what you can expect when Moto Shop opens:



We’re transforming Moto Maker from an online design studio to a mini workshop where you can get hands-on with genuine leathers, real woods and a broad-ranging color palette to build a custom Moto X Pure Edition. The possibilities are (almost) endless.



The Moto 360 boutique offers personalized smartwatch shopping. Nearly all the Moto Maker customization options are on display, so you can try them on and build a watch that reflects your unique style.



Get photographed on our Moto Shoot set with the Moto X Pure Edition’s top-rated 21 megapixel camera. You’ll never want to use another camera again.



And finally, we couldn’t build Moto Shop without letting shoppers put the world’s first shatterproof phone to the test in the Drop Zone. See Moto ShatterShield in action as the Droid Turbo 2 plummets from your hands onto slabs of concrete, ceramic and tile and never worry about dropping your phone again.



Come meet us in person on opening day, November 7, or for our grand opening celebration on November 14. We’d love to help you cross a few items off of your holiday gift list. Moto Shop is located at 108 N. State St. (Suite 140 at Block 37) and will be open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Don’t Fear The Drop with Moto ShatterShield #ShatterProof



It’s happened to the best of us -- whether you’re juggling too much in your hands or you stand up forgetting it’s in your lap -- when your smartphone screen breaks, a little bit of your heart breaks too.

Today’s smartphones have a tendency to let us down because -- among other things -- they’re incredibly fragile. More than half (53%) of global smartphone owners have shattered their screens, and one-in-five (21%) global smartphone owners are currently living with a broken smartphone screen1.

A phone should be there for you through it all -- every photo, text, call OR fall. Which is why we’ve spent the last three years creating Moto ShatterShield™, the world’s first phone screen guaranteed not to crack or shatter2.

With our new Moto ShatterShield technology, you’ll never have to fear the dreaded drop or have to deal with the expensive hassle of having to replace a busted screen again, thanks to an integrated system of five layers specifically designed to absorb shock and never shatter.

  1. It starts with a rigid aluminum core that provides structural integrity and durability.
  2. On top of that, we’ve added in a stunning AMOLED flexible display. Using a flexible display absorbs shock and makes it possible to flex during a drop versus breaking like most screens.
  3. Then, a dual touch layer with redundancy was created to help it survive accidents. Often, after a drop, the touch layer can go bad and your touch doesn’t work as well. So we‘ve added a failsafe mechanism.
  4. The next layer is the interior lens which provides a clear protective shield that won’t crack or shatter.
  5. Lastly, we topped it off with an exterior lens that has a unique hardcoat that helps protect the display against normal wear and tear. 

All of this amounts to unprecedented durability and protection from those everyday accidents. To learn more about how Moto ShatterShield was made, check out the video below:




Moto ShatterShield will first come to Droid Turbo 2 by Motorola available exclusively in the US through Verizon Wireless. We will bring this technology to other devices and countries around the globe soon, so stay tuned for more news.

Marshmallow and S’more



We believe your phone should look and behave like you want it to. That means our approach to software is ‘less is more’, so you can focus on the choices that are right for you. In fact, we’ve made it a priority to avoid bloatware and skins, and focus on identifying and tackling areas where we can enable more meaningful exchanges between you and your phone, such as simple voice controls and notifications that you can interact with even when your phone is asleep.

This philosophy has enabled us to make what we think are the most personal and responsive phones in the world, built on a foundation of pure Android with a few Moto Enhancements to improve (not impede) overall functionality. 

The New Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS is Here

We think Android is one of the best phone ingredients out there, and there are some sweet enhancements with Marshmallow that we’re excited about. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Doze Mode -- This new feature monitors your phone and puts it into a deep sleep when it’s not being used, which can extend battery life substantially. 
  • Now on Tap -- We love Google Now, and it’s improved in Android M. Simply long press the home button to bring up the Google Now feature and display information based on whatever you’re doing at the time.
  • Android Pay -- Android M allows you to bring up Android Pay with a simple tap and easily make purchases without having to open a separate app.
  • Direct Share -- Share your photos, news, links, etc. with your favorite contacts easily and quickly.
  • Simpler volume controls -- A more intuitive way to control ringtone and media volume.

Changes to Moto Enhancements

The release of a new Android version is a great time to take a fresh look at our signature Moto Enhancements to ensure we’re complementing Android (not competing with it). Android 6.0 Marshmallow includes some great new features similar to things we’ve developed in the past. For example, you’ll find an option for ‘Do not disturb’ under the ‘Sound and notification’ settings to make sure you’re not interrupted during meetings or while sleeping. That’s similar to Moto Assist, so we’re removing Moto Assist as part of the upgrade to M.

Android M also enhances support for backing up user data. These improvements duplicate most of what Motorola Migrate provides. Consequently, we’ll retire Motorola Migrate and no longer preload it going forward. We will also retire the Google Chrome extension found in Motorola Connect. Since we created Motorola Connect, several similar services have shown up on Google Play and many consumers have moved from SMS to other over-the-top messaging services. Both of these products were valuable in their time but the world has moved on and they no longer add enough value to justify taking up space in your device. For more information about where to find a few of these common features within Android M or alternative apps other consumers use, check out our support forum.

Upgrades

Now, we know the question that’s on everyone’s minds. Right now we have plans to upgrade the following Motorola devices1. Things may change, so please refer to our software upgrade page for the latest, and specifics by country:

  • 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (3rd gen)
  • 2015 Moto X Style (3rd gen)
  • 2015 Moto X Play
  • 2015 Moto G (3rd gen)
  • 2014 Moto X Pure Edition in the US (2nd gen)
  • 2014 Moto X in Latin America, Europe and Asia2 (2nd gen)
  • 2014 Moto G and Moto G with 4G LTE2 (2nd gen)
  • DROID Turbo
  • 2014 Moto MAXX
  • 2014 Moto Turbo
  • Nexus 6

As for timing, we have high standards, so we’ll work fast but we won’t push the upgrades out until we know they’re ready. Look for more news on timing in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned for more details on upgrades for specific devices.
