Hi. I'm Brian Bennett at CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the Motorola Motoactv. You can think of this device as essentially tricked out suit up iPod nano. Designs specifically for fitness fanatics. In fact Motorola envisions the Motoactv to be the ultimate workout companion. Available in two varieties 24,9999 for 8 gigabytes and 29,999 for 16 gigabytes. The moto active runs it's own version of Android and it uses GPS to track your runs, bikes and walks. It also relies on a accelerometer to function as a (pedometer?) and syncs performance data via wifi and cellular connection when linked to Motorola smart phones. It was just (??) to the Motoactv website to view stats, recorded workouts, sign up for fitness challenges or choose a training (clan?). The first thing you notice about the Motoactv is it's tough metal construction. It also has a 0.37 inch screen that's which is the black and white mode outdoors for better few ability. Volume and power buttons on the right side and the capacity of back button and ambu light sensor are on the front. It also comes with a micro USB port on the left side and on the top edge is a start music button. There's also a clip but you can also buy the wrist wrap to use the motor active as a watch. There are multiple watch faces to choose from to. It also comes with Motorola SF200 wired headphones and you can also pair two stereo headphones for wireless listening at 249999. This is one price gadget. The phone linking function also only works with Motorola handsets. It's large size and watch design isn't for everyone either while it automatically track steps to take all day at the moment there was no way to measure or analyze this data. You can only do this with workouts manually recorded. I'm Brian Bennett and this is been a first look at the Motorola Motoactv. Be sure check out our full review at CNET.com.
