One thing is clear, Motorola is serious about their MotoActv product. Since picking one up on launch day back in November and doing this brief overview video, there have been at least 3 software updates. And that’s not counting the one that was just announced today which includes 3 new battery saving modes, additional clock faces, a stopwatch feature, and other things.
I’m still on the fence as to whether or not this product is a must have for workout enthusiasts, but I will say that I use it for every run and enjoy it for the most part. I think the price tag is what will scare off most people. The battery life was also once great and is now atrocious, so hopefully this latest update helps. Other than that, this is one of those first-gen products that we really need to sit back and watch evolve.
For those with the 8GB version, this new update should be out some time today. The 16GB model will receive the update within the next week.
