Motorola today confirmed the pricing and launch details for the Moto 360 Sport smartwatch. First introduced back with the second-gen Moto 360, the Moto 360 Sport is designed for those with a more active lifestyle.

Powered by Android Wear, the watch comes with a silicone band with ventilation channels. In other words, it won’t fade or stain like the leather bands on its more traditional counterpart. Inside the watch you’ll find built-in GPS for tracking runs and measuring performance. Additionally, it packs the heart sensor and Wi-Fi connectivity present in other models.

The Moto 360 Sport is the first watch to feature Motorola’s AnyLight screen technology. What this means to you is a traditional LCD experience when indoors but an anti-glare light reflection that allows for easy reading.

The watch will reach the U.K. and France first, starting one week from today on December 8. The Moto 360 Sport comes to the US market on January 7 where it will be sold direct-to-consumer and in Best Buy stores on January 10. The device will also make its way to Brazil, Canada, China, Mexico, and Spain in 2016.

The Moto 360 Sport will carry a retail price tag of $299.
