    This device is what you get when a Garmin forerunner and an ipod nano make babies.

    A forerunner cost 160 and a nano 130. Oh what’s that? That’s exactly the price of the 16gb motoActv?

    Plus this thing has some extra tricks that make it well worth the price if you are in the market for a gps-enabled exercise watch. 

    If you aren’t in the market for that, please stop claiming its to expensive. 

  • they hinted to myself on twitter that more watch faces might be coming as well…. 

    • Thank you! I got tired of being the only one in MotoActv threads saying this.

      The worst is when people compare it to the nano….

    I’m sooooo close to buying one of these. The price is killing me!

      considering that you can buy a motorla Droid on Amazon for 67 dollars without a contract, I agree. might be a little big to wear as a watch, but i can buy 3 of them for the price of this watch.

      As one of the suckers that bought the watch I can tell you it has been worth it. I am on call a lot. And being able to look whose calling on the watch to see if need to answer was a good enough perk for me. However, you can also answer calls over a Bluetooth or wired headset. So depending on the call I can answer with out interrupting my run. Battery life was crap but updates have addressed that. My only real complaint is that they advertise it as a watch but it comes with no watch band unless you want that your shell out another 30$. So that is lame. amazon much cheaper on amazon.

    Stop whining about the price.  It is priced correctly for the segment.

    Look at the Nike+ watch.  This thing Trumps it, and that watch is $199 (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004WIUDGM/ref=asc_df_B004WIUDGM1891388?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=asn&creative=395093&creativeASIN=B004WIUDGM).  This has a ton more features, including Bluetooth, Wifi, etc, Motorola does not market this to compare with the ipod, so why compete in price with it?

    I bet the 10 people who bought it are happy.

      it’s a great watch once you root it

      • Myfacetube

        if you are using it anything other than working out, you’ve completely missed the point of this device

        • NYOB

          That is correct.  This thing is great for running, and other activities.

          If you’re using an Android device for the manufacturer’s intended purpose, you’re missing the point of Android.

            And if you’re so worried about rooting this device and unlocking the(already unlocked)bootloader, you’re missing the point of diminishing returns. Seriously its not even a phone or a tablet….Android was made to be a PHONE OS(and HC to be a tablet OS) so this shouldnt even be running Android then huh? Since it’s “missing the point of Android” and all. 

            WTF are you trying to put ICS on the damn thing or somethin? Yeah cuz thatll look GREAT on a 1″ screen. Since we’re in ur magical world of everything should be used as anything, we should be able to use 10.1″ tablets as phones right? I mean if I cant use it as a phone and hold it up to my head then its “missing the point of Android” right? Oh and I should be able to run ICS on my Ti-83 be able to pilot a cruise missle with it too. I mean I bought it and I should be able to do anything I want with it right?

            Grow up and realize that everything has a purpose. You however do not.

    How about a price decrease to make this thing more attractive?
