Sprint. Cycle. Sing.
Your heart’s pumping, your thighs are burning but you’ve hit the wall with five laps to go. You need a serious tune to get you through. MOTOACTV can rock up to 4,000 of your favorite songs while tracking your every move, from the street to the gym. Ultra-portable, you choose the way you want to wear MOTOACTV: strap it on your wrist or arm, clip it to your shirt or mount it on your bike during an outdoor ride.
Your playlist is more than just workout songs: they’re songs that push you to perform at your best. The smart music player learns what tracks motivate you most by measuring your performance against your music and then uses those songs to create your personal high-performance playlist.
On those days when your automatically generated high-performance playlist isn’t doing the trick, you can switch to FM radio for even more song variety. And if the music is really moving you, go that extra mile – MOTOACTV tracks your outdoor training via GPS.
