Fitness buffs who want to stay connected while working out might want to take the MotoACTV for a spin. The latest software update to Motorola’s fitness gadget adds the ability to get Tweets and Facebook wall posts directly on your screen. It can already send phone calls and texts to the tiny device.
The screen has been re-designed as well for easier navigation, along with new options for workout plans. You can set targets for different activities, like running, walking, spinning, or whatever else you like to do. Change up the pace by adding in a target heart rate for warm-up and cool-down as well.
Like other fitness gadgets, the MOTOACTV will track your route via your phone’s GPS. After your workout you can zoom in and pan out on route details to get a better look at where you’ve been. Then check your Facebook messages and tweets for a little support from the cheering section.
To get the social component, go to the Google Play Store and search for MOTOACTV Facebook and Twitter. Install the plug-ins along with the latest version of the MOTOACTV app.
