Motorola MotoActv GPS Fitness Tracker and Music Player review: Motorola MotoActv GPS Fitness Tracker and Music Player

 

Motorola MotoActv GPS Fitness Tracker and Music Player

Extremely versatile and possessing the flexibility of Android, the ; tracks workout stats through GPS and a pedometer, and it even suggests energizing playlists. It also has Bluetooth for linking to phones, headsets, and other sensors.

Starting at $249.99, this gadget costs as much as a modern smartphone. It's made for serious exercise and doesn't provide casual activity tracking or offer goals for daily activity levels. While the MotoActv's phone-linking function is nice, it only...

Motorola's incredibly capable MotoActv fitness device can tackle just about any fitness task--such as tracking workouts via GPS and connecting to headsets via Bluetooth--and it serves as a very tiny digital music player. Yet, if you're looking for a...

Motorola MotoActv

 

Motorola's MotoActv cleverly correlates and displays data from your workouts, such as the map of your route and your pace during each song on your playlist. Among hybrid music player-fitness tracking devices, though, it's on the pricier side.

GPS-enabled. Solid music player. Easy to set up. Nice Web features. Touch screen. Excellent data displays.

Pricey. Doesn't include essential accessories. App available only for Android users.

Loading music onto the device took nothing more than connecting it to my computer with the USB cord. iTunes was recognized as my default music playing software, which made it easy to choose playlists when prompted. MotoActv is compatible with all music...

Motorola MOTOACTV GPS Tracker Review

 

Verizon recently gave me the opportunity to try out the new MOTOACTV. Well, what exactly is it? A music player? A GPS Tracker? A watch? Actually, it's all of those. They also lent me the Sports armband. I am definitely a casual runner, and I don't run...
