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!

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.

Had high hopes which were immediately dashed after just several uses. Bought the product and wrist band. Only ran with it a few times. The back of the unit popped off and separated from the black display part. I was really surprised but also figured it would just snap back on. It didn't. It would only partially connect. I also tried to plug in to charge but there was a display of a battery with a question mark symbol over it indicating that the device was not charging. I called Morotola and had THE WORST customer service experience. Having bought this product just four weeks ago and paying $300 I would have expected more. I has expecting the customer service rep to be courteous and professional and understanding and allow me to send my unit in for replacement. Instead, I was directed to "level 2 support" whatever that means, and spoke with Robert who could not have been less helpful, in fact argumentative. He held his stance like a solider and maintained that I had to send the device in so that their tech department can evaluate whether I damaged the device. The way he came across was as though he was making me out to be a liar. I said for $300 I don't feel that I should be paying for shipping to Motorola and then waiting God knows how long for a response of whether or not they will replace the item. For $300 I expect much better customer service both from Motorola's representative as well as their standing behind their product. I was initially very casual when making the phone call because I honestly felt that this was going to be a very simple issue. I purchased your product, it broke, send a replacement or refund. I was happy to have a new unit shipped to me but having to go through their process of sending it in and having them determine whether it is broke or not is ridiculous.Read more ›

Update: September 17, 2012.

After about 4 months I would like to report the MOTOACTV is still working good although the battery life is terrible. I've just got use to putting it on the charger every night.

Also, I'm not real happy that this product has dropped $75 since I've purchased it. I realize technology changes and with that prices but $75 is a bit drastic. Live and learn but this will make me question a purchase of a Motorola product in the future.

Original review:

I've had the MOTOACTV for a little over a month and I thought it was time to write a review.

I was looking for a new MP3 player for the gym and I usually use an app on my phone to track my bike rides and walking and one day I stumbled across the MOTOACTV. I'm a gadget geek and I thought how cool is it to have a MP3 player, GPS, fitness tracker, watch all in one. I read the reviews and ordered one.

The device is a quality piece. It doesn't feel "cheap" like some electronics.

I use the device at the gym when I weight train, do cardio, and when I ride bike or go for walks. I use the pocket clip at the gym (when can use headphones) and the watch band when I ride bike or walk (no music).

It was pretty easy to setup and get up and running. It syncs with the MOTOACTV website thru my home network with no issues and it even syncs with my HTC EVO with the MOTOACTV app. I also like how it will sync with iTunes to load music playlists. It makes it really easy to load music.

After a couple of weeks I ordered the Motorola chest heart rate monitor because I feel to really monitor your workout results you need to see your heart rate. This comes to my first complaint. For the price, this really should have been included.
