Motorola ACTV (Read 877 times)

    Back when I used to work for Motorola, I submitted a request that they create a running watch/mp3 player that would pair with a phone to track workouts in real time with sites like RA.  Looks like they finally listened to me, and threw in heart-rate monitoring headphones to boot:

      I'd be curious if it would sync with RA.  The promo info only states that it passes the data off to Motorola's new running log.  Boo.

       

      I got a little excited about it until I hit the dirt this morning on a trail run in the dark.  My Garmin 305 hit pretty hard and was no worse for the wear.  I'm sure the ACTV would have been smashed into bits.

        I assumed there would be some way to extract a .gpx or something.  Plus, since it is an android device, it's only a matter of time before someone roots it and makes it customizable.

          I think this thing will be awesome....for *some* people anyway.  Hope they listen to the communities and make it downloadable to any log.

            An in-depth review of the device is up on the DCRainmaker blog. Really interesting product. I don't run with music, but alot of folks do. Garmin really has some competition now with products like this and the Timex Run Trainer - should lead to better options for all of us down the road.
