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 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 announced


The new Droid Razr from Motorola, billed as the world's slimmest smartphone, wasn't the only thing that the company had in store for us. They have also announced their new Android device called MotoACTV which is actually a ‘smart watch' that plays...

Motorola MotoACTV - Pocket-lint


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

Wide range of features, compatibility with plenty of accessories and sensors, easy to use, convenient wireless syncing, nicely designed interface, 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...

Motorola Motoactv review


Although Android is most popularly used as a mobile phone operating system, it has the scope to be used in a far wider range of devices. Motorola's Motoactv is a great example of the operating system's potential. It uses a highly customised version of...

This glossy sports tracking device has loads of innovative and very useful features, but also has a number of disappointing limitations and an inappropriately short battery life

Motorola Motoactv


First look: A GPS fitness tracker and music player which outpaces the competition and will get sport watch manufacturers sweating.

Rainproof ; On-device route mapping ; Music player ; Bluetooth pairing with phone and headphones ; Physical buttons

Limited data sets

We were impressed at the functionality on the watch which includes a live GPS map which shows your location as well as recorded route on a map, something unmatched on any sport watch. It even has a virtual partner function so you can run against your...
