Motorola MotoActv GPS Fitness Tracker and Music Player review

 

Fitness fanatics just may have a device with enough power to capture and motivate them toward greater performance. At least that's what Motorola believes it has created in its MotoActv. A veritable miniature computer running Android, this gadget uses...

Extremely versatile and possessing the flexibility of Android, the MotoActv 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

 

There's a lot of great free smartphone apps that will track your run through the park, but you can't get around the fact that you still have to carry your phone; aside from its weight, you have to worry about it getting wet, damaged, or lost. The...

Motorola MOTOACTV Review

 

It's time to rock and roll all night and get active every day - Motorola MOTOACTV , that is, a tiny Android-based device which can clip to yourself in a host of ways, it feeding data to you on your exercise regiment on the daily. With this device...

This device was a pleasant surprise to me. I’m by no means a healthy person, definitely someone who could benefit from a regular run outside in the summer or inside the mall in the winter, and what do you know, this device has me wanting to do it. In...

Motorola MOTOACTV Review

 

Enter the MOTOACTV, a specialized device that Motorola hails as being the ultimate fusion of music and fitness, as it aims to whip us into shape by tracking and monitoring our physical activities. Yeah, it might simply be an MP3 player with some...

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...

Wi-Fi ; Bluetooth ; GPS ; Well-designed web site

Battery life (for LONG runs/rides) ; No 3rd-party web support (like RunKeeper) ; Expensive

Motorola MOTOACTV In Depth Review

 

As I noted two days ago, the has completely and totally changed the face of sports watches…literally overnight. Upon its initial release it has managed to offer an immense suite of features and functionality, as well as offering new sensor types and...

– Amazingly clean user interface ; – Easily records your runs, bikes, walks, other gym equipment ; – Supports ANT+, Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth sensors ; – Supports Bluetooth headphones wirelessly ; – Allows data export to CSV ; – Connects via Wifi...

– Waterproofing is of questionable integrity ; – No audible alerts without headphones ; – No vibration engine for vibration alerts ; – Battery level seems lower than it should be

Motorola MotoACTV

 

The Motorola ACTV sees Motorola Mobility branch into a new sector. It's a bold move, taking on the established Nike+, Polar, Garmin and Timex, to name a few. But does the Motorola ACTV bring anything new to the table? Does it offer a viable alternative...

Wide range of features, compatibility with plenty of accessories and sensors, easy to use, convenient wireless syncing, nicely designed interface, motoactv.com supports it well, variety of straps and mounts

Not properly waterproof, battery life isn't fantastic

Overall there is plenty to love about the Motorola ACTV. It is sophisticated, it looks good and it's easy to use. It does just about everything you could ask of it, as well as being compatible with a range of other sensors and devices to make it a...
