These days when we think of Motorola we think of some of the hottest Android phones on the market, but the hardware maker does more that just smartphones. Last month at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas they unveiled the MotoACTV, a new Fitness Tracker and MP3 player.
The MotoACTV can be worn on your wrist like a watch or hooked to your bike handlebars like a cycling computer. It will keep track of just about everything an athlete could ask for – how far you have gone, how many calories you have burned, the number of steps taken, and can even hook up, via Bluetooth, to a heart-rate monitor. All of the data is then uploaded to a web site where you can keep track of everything for days or months at a time. If all of that isn’t enough, it also has a built-in MP3 player and will even track how you do during different songs. In addition, it as built-in WiFi, so your data can be automatically uploaded when you arrive home.
The Motorola MotoACTV comes in 8 GB and 16 GB versions, which retail for $249 and $299 respectively. The device is available now and you can learn more by visiting Motorola.
