MotoACTV | Motorola
Motorola plans to update its MotoACTV Android companion app tomorrow so that all Android 2.1+ smartphones can send email, text, calendar, and call log notifications to the activity-tracking watch. The company will also release its golf update tomorrow to current ACTV owners, allowing them to get the recently-announced golf tracking features like distrance tracking and a "virtual scorecard."
Motorola has just announced the MotoACTV Golf Edition, which costs $299.99. The new edition offers yardage readings to the green and will track your activity on 20,000 golf courses. It is available for pre-order now.
Tomorrow will see the release of another update for the MotoACTV watch, bringing 40 new activities to monitor and the ability to wake the watch up with a flick of your wrist.
Motorola has released another update to the MotoACTV. The update ups the outdoor battery life to nine hours, adds a screen lock function, and introduces a battery percentage readout in the status bar.
Motorola's recently-released MotoACTV sports watch, which normally runs a highly customized UI atop Android 2.3, has been opened up using Revolutionary's zergRush exploit, and the standard suite of Google apps can now be installed.
A software update for Motorola's MotoACTV adds a previously missing stopwatch feature, additional clock faces, battery saving modes for up to eight hours of run time, and the ability to continuously display your heart rate on the clock face. The MotoACTV still costs an arm and a leg.
