Video: Motorola MotoActv – First look

GPS tracker, training device and music player rolled into one

Motorola MotoActv

While the curtain has come down on the second London Bike Show, we’re keeping the magic flowing with our 60 Second Sells series of video clips that allows brands to showcase their 2012 product highlights.


Today we’re looking at Motorola’s MotoActv – a training device, GPS tracker and music player all rolled into one. While we’d only advocate listening to music when training indoors, the technology inside this £249.99 gizmo may still appeal to cyclists on the road.

The 35g device has many of the bells and whistles of similar bike computers, recording distance, speed, pace, calories, routes and heart rate (with optional £39.99 sensor). It’s waterproof and has a claimed battery life of five hours for outdoor use (10 hours indoors), 8GB of storage, FM radio capability and a 1.6in colour screen. 


Turbo enthusiasts will like the “smart” music player, which learns which tracks motivate you most by measuring your performance against your library, creating high-performance playlists. The MotoActv comes with a wrist strap and headphones, and UK distributors Evans Cycles will thrown in a free bike mount too. Visit MotoActv for more information.
