Just finished off a Friday night run, plugged in my MOTOACTV and sure enough, it prompted me to update. It updated to version 4.55.97, but depending on the model you have, you may receive a slightly different build (4.56.97 / 4.57.97 /4.58.97 are the others). All of them should include the exact same enhancements though, including better battery life, a new status bar, and the ability to lock the screen during workouts.

Full break down is after the break.  

Longer Battery Life

MOTOACTV’s indoor/outdoor battery life is now better than ever before with up to 9 hours of
uninterrupted workout time outdoors.

Now you can now see how long your battery will last via the handy Status Bar. Just monitor your
percentage and make the most of your workout time!

prevent unwanted display activation. Just Double Press the Power key to lock and unlock your workout

Enhanced Auto-Pause and Auto-Run

Now you can take a break from the action and pause your workout manually, even if Auto-Pause is
enabled. You can also choose between indoor/outdoor Auto-Run options.
