What kind of idiot is going to go running with one of these and use the MP3 player by connecting headphones to a headphone jack all the way down one's wrist?

Hint: not this idiot.

Might be better off using this armband.

I like that it has GPS (good if you're a trail runner and want to map where you've been) and looks cool overall.

Actually you can get a bluetooth headset which would solve the wire dangling on your wrist problem. A buddy of mine actually pick this up 3 years ago when it first came out for $249 after PM. He really like it especially with all the built-in features. For $250 back then, it was a bit much, for $83.98 - $133.97 its a ok price, but not sure how much longer the product will be supported as it is already discontinued and if google will continue to provide updates or development on it. Also, if I remember correctly, the 8gb doesn't come with the armband where as the 16gb comes complete. Looking at the description, looks like it might not come with the armband.

Includes:

MOTOACTV 8GB or 16GB
Single Output Wall Charger
Motorola SF200 (stereo headphones with mic)

If you just want a fitness tracker and not a mp3 or gps, I will stick with something fairly new such as the fitbit or misfit which can be had for around $80 (when you catch it on sale).


Definitely a good price. However, mine had horrible accuracy problems with only light tree coverage overhead. Bought it on woot and sold it on eBay. I enjoyed the watch overall for its features. From my experience, it works great if you are only running with clear view of sky. Hope that helps some.

Please add REFURB to the title...

I have done it. But used the BT headset. Great deal

I concluded it doesn't have bluetooth since the listing doesn't say it does (separate research says yep has bluetooth)so maybe the armband bit is also there but not mentioned. I've always thought bluetooth audio was deficient and that's why to this day you still see so many people with iphones / pods connected via wired phones instead of bluetooth.

It's a modern digital smartphone-type product, of course it has bluetooth!

IMO bluetooth headphones are either heavy or expensive, so most people opt for just the headphones that come with their phone. That's what I normally do as bluetooth headset charging is a hassle. Headphones just work 100% of the time. The only exception is when it's too cold out and I'm using the treadmill, there I prefer bluetooth headphones so I don't have the cord bouncing around everywhere waiting for me to knock it and send my phone flying.

If anyone is interested and have some time on their hand, here is a good discussion on how to flash the MOTOACTV to do other stuffs. its over 322 Pages with over 3000+ posts.

For specific uses, maybe. But this is Abandonware that Google tossed out long ago. By default it runs the worst version of Android (3.0 Honeycomb) with no upgrade path. This is not even Galaxy Gear's rough draft.

#$#$! I did not catch that part, it says refurbished at the very bottom. Sneaky for not putting it in the title(at tango)! Sent email to cancel order.........

I love my MotoActv. A little pricey at its original price point, but great nonetheless. I've only ever used the headphone jack for connecting it to my car stereo. I ended up getting the heart rate monitor, foot pod, and speed/cadence bike sensors. I wish Motorola would continue developing this line, as I believe it could be better than all the other "activity" watches out there.

After a while of use, the unit will learn what songs you work out best too. Sort of a cool feature if you ask me.
