MOTOACTV ReviewLooking to track your fitness regime? The MOTOACTV may be just what you have been looking for. Announced late in 2011 the MOTOACTV is a lightweight, wearable fitness performance tracker and smart music player in one.

There are two types of sports people I think this product is gunning for. At one end of the scale, you have the hobbyists, like me, that go running a couple of times a week and maybe enjoy a spot of cycling and the pretence of being a triathlete. Having a training aid, whether that’s an app on your phone or iPod can be a real help to keep the motivation going. I’ve personally been using Endomondo on my BlackBerry for a couple of months now and find it’s a real help in pushing me to run that little faster as the kms clock by. I have however been thinking I might upgrade so something a little more technical. Here, MOTOACTV looks to be offering a step up from the mobile app to include the possibility for heart rate monitoring and easy to upload training cycles.

At the other end of the scale you have the purists for which only the best product will do. They need measurable stats for heart rate, performance, lap times, optimum speeds and so on. The MOTOACTV here is looking to offer this functionality whilst adding the more friendly benefits of an mp3 player to boot.

Is it worth well purchase? Read on to find out my thoughts.
