Hit and Miss
on November 1, 2013
I have purchased 2 motoactvs. The first was fantastic and it was through a fault of my own that it broke. I loved the 16G space for music. It was easy to navigate allowing me to sync different kinds of hear rate monitors and wireless headphones. It also synced with smartphones. What was useful to me was all the options for working out indoors and outdoors. It would even prompt me to calibrate my pace so it more accurately track me. What I didn't like was the hassle of getting both motoactv sync and motocast online. It was, however, only a one time download and once figured out it was no longer an issue.
The second time I bought the motoactv, the battery died quickly and, despite charging it all night, would go from 90% to 60% to 5% and shut off in a mater of minutes. When turned back on it would jump to 60% and stay there. Sometimes it wouldn't even turn on and would have to be plugged in just to tell me it already had 50%. In addition, it would change my time and date settings so my workouts were always off. Towards the end, it wouldn't even sync my workouts. It just kept reading 'sync error'.
So bummed out and now it's discontinued. I just opted to send it back and get a refund.
