If you’re looking for something truly unique, cutting-edge, and straight up awesome this holiday season, the MOTOACTV by Motorola might be exactly what you’re looking for.
At first glance the MOTOACTV looks like a sleeker, sexier version of the iPod Nano, but let me be the first to tell you…it’s not just a dumb blonde–there are tangible brains and technology behind this beauty.
Imagine the perfect fitness device…a super device if you will…that combines the mp3 capabilities of an iPod Nano; the fitness tracking technology of a Garmin watch; the heart rate reading capabilities of a Polar device; and an online progress tracking platform powered by Nike+…that’s the MOTOACTV in a nutshell…and it’s absolutely glorious.
It’s fitness tracking + mp3 bundled into one, tiny, Android powered package. It’s something (to my knowledge) that’s never been done before…it’s about time!
8/16GB “Smart” MP3 Player: If having a fully integrated mp3 player wasn’t cool enough, the MOTOACTV can also analyze your workout data and create smart playlists based on the songs that motivate you most (based on calories burned, highest heart rate, fastest pace, etc.).
Strapless Heart Rate Monitor: It instead measures heart rate via high-powered wireless headphones. More comfort, less chafing. Yes please.
Fitness Measurements & Progress Tracking: The MOTOACTV’s AccuSense™ sensors dynamically measure speed, heart rate, calories burned, steps taken, duration, and distance all from one easy to read screen. What’s even cooler (and the kicker for me)? All workout data is automatically uploaded to MOTOACTV.com & the free, compatible Android app for accurate monitoring and analysis.
…and GPS Run Tracking: Using Motorola’s AccuSense™ technology, the MOTOACTV can accurately map out and upload all run paths for quick and easy visualization of every workout.
Wireless Connectivity to DROID Smartphones: Got an Android smartphone? The MOTOACTV wirelessly syncs up to all DROID phones, and if within range, can actually receive calls and texts directly on MOTOACTV device. That’s all-in-one performance…
It’s Tiny: The MOTOACTV only weighs 35 grams.
It’s a TANK: It’s got Gorilla Glass on top, and is completely sweat proof, scratch proof, AND rain resistant. Sounds like a great candidate for the Tough Mudder.
On-board FM Radio. In case you need your Bruno Mars or Britney Spears fix.
Built in Audio Coach: Who doesn’t love a watch that automatically voices over motivational messages?
