MOTOACTV-Thumb

Sure, you have your Pebbles and your Galaxy Gears, not to mention your various Kickstarter-funded competitors that promise even more functionality. But how much work do you really intend to do from your wrist? If all you want is a fitness tracker that plays back music and can also tell the time, then Motorola's MOTOACTV smartwatch might be all you need, and today it's available from Woot for just $129.99, over half off its usual price.

MOTOACTV

The MOTOACTV debuted back in 2011 running Android, and though it received numerous updates, it has since been discontinued. Nevertheless, its price on Amazon has yet to drop to anything remotely close to the price it's going for today on Woot. This offer is less than half the $299.99 price tag of the Galaxy Gear and $20 less than what the Pebble's currently going for. Considering this fitness watch can still sync to your smartphone to notify you of calls, texts, and calendar events, that isn't bad at all.

    I recently rooted mine and put a rom on it and have Google Maps loaded on it. Now when im driving the directions are on my wrist. So much more convenient.

    Honestly, I would not recommend this device. About 3 month ago I got one of this and it was working fine. Six weeks later sweat got into it. I did send it back to Motorola and was told they could not fix it because of water damage. Also, Keep in mind that I honestly took care of my unit. That no showers with it. The idea was great, but you cant expect to sell a device or market a device to active people and expect them not sweat or stay in on rainy days.

    Great deal for a device that does exactly what it was designed to do. I've had my device for 2 years, using it every and it does work as described. While discontinued, the device does more than what other smart watches are advertising that they will someday deliver.

    I have one of these (16Gb), which I use for running/cycling, as well as the Suunto Ambit 2 which I use for the same (as well as swimming).

    It's kinda nice, and a novelty - however, I wouldn't recommend it if you actually want to use it as a sports/GPS watch.

    The server-side (MotoActv website) is terrible - and the support forums are filled with people complaining about issues.

    The battery life on the MotoActv is appallingly bad, the GPS reception is terrible as well.

    The Suunto Ambit 2 just works - sure, the screen is black and white, and it doesn't run Android (!!!), but it's just a better device, all around.

    Love mine, use it mainly for golf, pulls course info from skydroid.com, which you can update yourself if you find that something is wrong, or need to add a course.
