MOTOACTV taken to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, survives the journey

While we've been getting in shape during Mobile Nations Fitness Month and sharing our tips and tricks with you all, we came across a pretty awesome use for the MOTOACTV recently. Highlighted on the Motorola blog is Christine Rolf, who has taken her MOTOACTV to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and back for a good cause:

After hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu I wanted a bigger challenge. Kilimanjaro was it: the summit is 5895 meters/19,340 feet high. I hiked 62 kilometers in 7 days – first a 4,405 meter ascent followed by a 3,915 meter descent, through a total of 5 climate zones. I also wanted to raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation where I’ve volunteered for over 10 years. The donations totaled over $2,500!

Amazing to say the least. Christine noted the MOTOACTV was a great tool to have in her arsenal for the climb and while we won't be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro any time soon - we're not going to disagree.

  • Nice :-)
  • How long did her climb take? This device only has a 6 hour battery life, right?
  • Depends on what you do with it. I get about 2 days out of mine. I only work out in 30-40 min sets though. The battery life has been improved significantly since the updates.
  • She had a battery pack. Read the source.
