Motorola’s new mid-range wearable may be a worthy rival for the Galaxy Fit 3

Motorola expands its mid-range smartwatch series with an even cheaper option: the Moto Watch 40.

The new wearable is nearly identical to last year’s model, the Moto Watch 70, sporting all the same features. It comes equipped with multiple sensors for keeping track of your sleeping patterns and heart rate. There’s even a pedometer on board. When it comes to heart rate monitoring, the Moto Watch 40 will track it 24 hours a day. It then takes this data to generate a chart showing how everyday activities affect your heart in detail. The info can be seen on the smartwatch’s display or the Moto Watch Lite app for Android and iOS. Speaking of software, the device can integrate with Google Fit, allowing you to send all of your data to the platform and share it with other health-centric apps.

Like the older wearable, the Moto Watch 40 boasts a 10-day battery life although its longevity can differ depending on how often you use it. Charging the device is lightning fast as it takes about 25 minutes to get a full battery. Other notable features include Smart Notifications to receive messages from your favorite app plus a resistance rating of IP67 ensuring complete protection against dust and splashes of water.
