The Motoactv is a combination portable audio player and fitness assistant from the Motorola company. Functioning similarly to the Apple iPod Nano with Nike+ capabilities, this model features Wi-Fi content synchronization and a 1.6-inch touchscreen LCD display for visual referencing. Available in both 8 and 16-gigabyte models, the device is reinforced with ultra-durable Gorilla Glass and automatically adjusts brightness levels to suit a given environment. Feedback is given pertaining to time, distance, speed and calories burned, with an integrated "audio coach" to provide-spoken word encouragement and instruction. In addition to the Motoactv's simple touchscreen controllability, a number of top-mounted hard buttons are included for triggering various commands when the user is mid-excercise and doesn't want to risk damaging the unit with sweat. A convenient "Back" button is built into the device's bezel for reverting to the main screen or previous exercise/data sheet, with automatic workout results able to sync with the Motoactv.com website where users can log on and monitor their results. A 3.5-milimeter headphone jack is included for standard headphone connectivity, with Bluetooth support enabling wireless control.
