The Moto 360 (Gen 3) smart-watch features the heart rate sensor (behind the watch) and the Google Fit fitness application. Together, they measure the amount of physical activity and calories burned. Plus, it tracks the heartbeat of the user.
Once the Google Fit app is on, the rate tracking displays information about the user's heart point on the home screen. This health indicator displays a green ring running along the bezel as physical activity intensifies. For example, when you perform exercises like swift-walking or jogging, you earn one heart point per minute. For more intense activities like sprinting, you earn two points per minute.
