I have never written a review for a product I purchased on Amazon, but I felt compelled to do so after my experience with the 16gb Motoactv. I had such high hopes for this watch. It had everything I was looking for. At the time I purchased it, the reviews had been mostly positive. Reading the Motoactv forum I could see that Motorola was responsive in listening to customer's concerns and proactive in fixing software issues. I felt confident I was buying a great product. Fast forward a month and a half later and my Motoactv just stopped working. I had just passed Amazon's 30 day return window so I had to deal with Motorola directly. Motorola instructed me to send it in for evaluation. They determined it had suffered "liquid damage" which is not covered by their warranty. Even if I wanted to pay them to fix it they will not. I wore the watch with the included wristband and was always careful not to get it wet even though it's advertised as being water resistant. I am a runner and I do sweat, but you would think a "sports watch" would be better equipped to handle perspiration. It is not. Now the Motoactv forum is filled with complaints and Motorola's representatives are not even responding anymore. Not to mention the bugs with their useless portal. With rumors that this product is now discontinued, it's obvious support for this device is gone. It makes me sick to think that I spent two hundred and sixty dollars on this thing and it dies after less than six weeks of gentle use. Not to mention the added cost of purchasing a compatible heart-rate monitor and bluetooth headphones. In an effort to prevent a total financial loss, I am now going to send it to a reputable third party vendor who will hopefully be able to fix the damage to this ill-engineered device. Buyer Beware!

What it is...
Probably the smallest Android tablet you've ever owned. It's kind of like a Dick Tracy wrist communicator when connected to your Android phone.

What isn't...
Not the latest version of Android nor is it a new-generation mobile product; in fact, it uses the old approach of relying heavily on a PC/Mac to update and operate. As such, there are permissions to set, installation oddities to fiddle with, a firewall to reconfigure, firmware updates which happen only after a PC reboot (at least for my Sony Vaio), and other things we just don't worry about any more with the latest generation mobile devices. And it doesn't work automatically with a Chromebook or an Android tablet, even if you install Motocast on that tablet (Motocast is required to communicate with the Motoactv watch; nonetheless, I got an error that Motocast was not compatible with my Android TF700 running JellyBean 4.2.1). I have been installing software and updates and configuring a Windows 7 PC for over an hour-and-a-half now...the watch itself is currently in the process of loading a fourth firmware update. This whole sordid activation is reminiscent of the old world of Microsoft where you put on a pot of coffee and make plans to stay up all night in getting the latest update to work, which contrasts with the new world of mobile phones and tablets where things just happen as expected most of the time and if you find something really exciting after loading an app, then you stay up all night figuring out how many different ways to use it. TWO HOURS LATER: Still loading yet another version of firmware. Lost count of the number of firmware updates. Still getting error messages that MOTOACTV cannot connect to Internet, despite firewall reconfigs, PC reboots, etc.

This is a great motivational tool with some really good features. GPS works well and the portal has a lot of useful information. My iPhone works with the Motoactv (for those that don't know, iPhone will only work via wired headset, not through bluetooth. Android works on both). The coaching tools are great. Only negatives are yards only distances on the golf app (yet it has metric options on everything else) and there is a steep learning curve. Use the Motoactv forum for answers if you get stuck. Just about any questions you have will already have been answered.

I have completed 2 Ironman Triathlon's and and in the middle of training for my 3rd (Lake Placid 2013). I needed my garmin 910xt as much as my bike and sneakers. 2 months ago while running the pin came out of the strap and the screen broke when it hit the ground. I contacted garmin and they said i could send it in and they would fix it. They said it would take 4-6 weeks to get it back. It went to Amazon to get another one because i couldnt go that long without a training watch. I typed in GPS sports watch and the Motorola MOTOACTV came up as an option. I figured since it was just a backup and it was about $150 cheaper than the garmin i would give it a shot. More than anything i wanted to try the built in MP3 player. I will tell you after 5 weeks i will never go back to the garmin. I love this watch. The map feature and fastest mile feature is great. It is extremely accurate and it updates you with voice commands as you are working out. It memorizes the songs that you are listening to when you preform the best and builds a playlist based on that. The touch screen displays are very nice and you can set up multiple screens. This is an amzing device and im looking forward to years of fun with it. The garmin 910xt is a great device also but you get the same thing with the motorola plus some for half the price. You cant go wrong.
