  • Ongoing tracking of fitness performance stats, including pace, distance, calories burned, and map of route covered, with automatic wireless syncing of workout data to
  • 8gb or 16gb of storage for endless playlists.

  • Size: 46mm x 46mm x 9.6mm
  • Weight: 35 g

It also runs Android (no word on what version, but probably doesn't matter here) and was stated to have a 600mhz processor.

  • Ima get this for sure. Also first
  • I can see this really taking off. My hometown, San Diego, has TONS of people who wear old school feature watches that try to cram everything into a 1" greyscale display. If you are hating on this product and have never even considered running a race of any kind then you are not the target audience. Thousands of people last year ran marathons and a good amount of em have a high tech watch that doesn't even do half of what this does.
  • Yea Im sold. I was gonna turn a nano in to a watch but this seems much better and it connects to my phone. Next all i need is ICS on my SGSII
  • Finally - a device that has everything rolled into one! Music, GPS and Bluetooth that is compact enough to not be obtrusive. What took so long? Thank you Motorola!
  • Looking forward to this!! This will replace my Ipod touch for music, Blackberry for GPS tracking, Polar Watch + Chest Strap for Heart Rate of all...IT'S WATERPROOF and COMPLETELY WIRELESS!
  • before I red this I thought it was going to be am app
  • red this? Is this some kind of play on words about Motorola's beloved color selection for its droid products?
  • I currently run with my Droid X straped to my arm, which is somewhat cumbersome...this looks like the device to have. So when is AC going to be giving one of these away? ;-)
  • Does it have a bicycle mode? I would love to wrap that around my handle bar. Does it connect to bluetooth headsets? If the answer is yes to both then I would highly consider purchasing one.
  • Yes to BT headset.. I am also curious about bike. I would guess that it would work in some capacity
  • Amazon is already has it for pre-order along with accessories including a bike mount :-) And yes it not only connects with a bluetooth headset is comes with one that doubles as a heart rate monitor, read from your ear canal. *correction it does not come with the the bluetooth headset, it's a separate purchase.
  • Can't wait till apple invents this in 2013..
  • So it does have ant+ I'm sold!
  • What about watch functions,does it have alarm or calendar and can you switch faces and can it be upgraded with firmware, just a few more details cause I'm almost sold
