Motorola MOTOACTV Sports MP3 Watch

Motorola MOTOACTV Price in the Philippines, Features, and Other Details: The MOTOACTV is a small fitness device from Motorola that gives athletes and health buffs direct access to whatever fitness data they have in store like maps, training schedules, intensity, duration, as well as recovery periods. The Motorola MOTOACTV and all its functions are in themselves accessible using a touchscreen. It is also GPS-enabled and can function as a music player. It can also correlate musing with the user’s physical activities. For example, it can plot the user’s miles-per-minute ratio or strides per minute changed, by song, while running, jogging, walking, cycling, or even using an elliptical machine. The GPS functionality is great for outdoor exercise, in which case the MOTOACTV is able to sync the aforementioned data on a map.

Physically, the Motorola MOTOACTV is small at 1.75 by 1.75 x 0.25 high by width by depth and is housed in black and red square chassis. It has the same-capacity as an iPod Nano but then again, the latter only costs half as much as the MOTOACTV. It even includes an accelerometer and clock that can also capture and store many of the mentioned data such as the user’s distance and pace. The Motorola MOTOACTV’s touch screen is smaller than that of the iPod Nano at only a little more than 1.5 inches wide by 1 inch tall. The menus and options are accessible using left and right finger swipes. This includes the settings, workout modes, music, and notifications. Additional options and menus reside in each of the categories. The default screen of the MOTOACTV consists of a bright display that keeps the date, time, steps taken when working out, as well as the number of calories burned in a day. The baseline itself depends on the user’s height, weight, age, and sex, and default calories burned according to the kind of exercise.


Along with the unit, the package containing the Motorola MOTOACTV comes with a comfortable and flexible pair of headphones, a USB cord, as well as an outlet adaptor. If the user wants for additional accessories like an armband and a clip, these are sold as separate items for $29.99 and $19.99 respectively. They can also be supplied as part of a kit. There is also a stiff but comfortable plastic watchband available for an additional $29.99 to complete the “sports wear”.

Aside from the default exercise trackers, the Motorola MOTOACTV also has some additional options like reminders. However, it can be really persistent in this regard and is a bit tough on what auto reminders can be dismissed and what the user can agree on. The device communicates with the user using textural prompts while the user inputs his or her responses using simple gestures from the touch screen. As for the music content of the device, this is actually quite easy to set up using just a computer and the supplied USB cord. The device is automatically recognized as an external mass storage so all the user needs to do is to drag and drop music files into it.

The default music player in the Motorola MOTOACTV can sync via iTunes so it’s easier to go and choose between playlists. However, the MOTOACTV is compatible with a wide range of music formats such as MP3 and AAC. The device also has an access to FM Radio. The free software application for the device is easy to use and can be quickly installed on your Windows or Mac computer.

Performance-wise, the Motorola MOTOACTV offers the user a fairly customizable suite that is perfect for whatever activity they are doing at that moment. Aside from the default stats, the user can also choose between three and six metric displays, including calories, distances, heart rate, interval intensity, laps, speed, step rate, and time. The display can be bigger but overall there’s no problem reading the numbers even while on active running or biking. Shortcuts are also available for easier and more convenient access and the device can be connected to a bike. GPS activity is also fast to connect. On moderate use, the battery can last for a day or two from a single charge.

Overall, the Motorola MOTOACTV is a useful and even sophisticated device for anyone who has an active lifestyle.
