Motorola keeping active, teases March software update for MOTOACTV

Motorola is working on an update that will bring even more functionality to their MOTOACTV fitness tracker and music player. After providing a few minor software tweaks over previous months, the update planned for March will expand the MOTOACTV’s tracking abilities from biking, running, and walking to a range of other sports including yoga, dancing, Pilates, and martial arts. That’s big news for many owners of the device who have been requesting a greater range of activity support since the Android-based smart watch launched.

Other enhancements will include the ability to activate the device’s display with the flick of the wrist, set WiFi networks directly from the MOTOACTV, and compete against other users through the MOTOACTV online portal. It’s great to see Motorola expand the device’s capabilities rather than let it fall into obscurity, something other smartwatch makers have been more than happy to let happen. If Moto keeps pushing quality updates to the MOTOACTV it has plenty of life left in it.

    this will fail just as google tv did/is.  Hate to say it but apple will pry come out with a similar device, the world will love it, it will set the standard, then android devices will follow.  Fitness buffs typically dont like uber geeky stuff like this.

      They sort of already do. The iPod Nano is about the same size and they have watch bands for it. However, like this, it’s not too popular to wear it as a watch. I don’t see anyone who does, actually. The Moto is MUCH more geared towards fitness, but other than that and the different operating systems, it’s pretty much the same thing when you think about it.
