Motorola has released a pair of updates for the MOTOACTV Android-based sports watch. The last round of updates came in March with new features for golfers. The new updates, versions 6.12 and 6.13, come with most of the same features, but there is a confusing split based on whether or not your device already has the golf features included.
Both updates contain enhancements and bug fixes including:
- Improved calorie burn algorithm during cycling workout with heart rate monitor
- Added Primary Activity selection during setup so your MOTOACTV is tailored to your primary sport
- Improved watch performance after display wake up
- Enhanced the way Album Lists are displayed
- Improved connectivity with Wahoo BLE heart rate monitor
The golf-compatible MOTOACTV watches will also get:
- Improved Golf club recommendation by widening the distance range
- Improved calculation for total score after a golf round.

One of my favorite features of Android is being able to have widgets on my device. With just a few widgets, my important information can be a quick glance away. Unfortunately, widgets typically offer a limited set of information (e.g., the last five messages) and the lack of animation on the majority of widgets makes them feel more static than they really are. Even Honeycomb's widgets are fairly limited. Fortunately, Android's live wallpapers allow for a far more engaging experience and the Bubbleator live wallpaper takes advantage of that. Read More
