Introducing Motorola MOTOACTV

Sports, it’s something that I loved participating, playing, supporting and watching. From my favourite sports such as football, basketball, rugby union, rugby league and running etc, I was interested in sports science and sports management as well. Since my horrific freak accident that left me out of action for 1 year of recovery, rest and rehabilitation, my sports participation declined significantly, rehabilitation is not the only reason nor exsuse, I just became lazy.

Now I am getting out of my laziness to be more active in my sports and  recreational side of things, to have a disciplined active consistent sporting lifestyle. Recently, my friendly PR folk Kelvin from XPR introduced to me a sporting, fitness and training device that caught my attention immediately from his facebook wall post. This is the Motorola MOTOACTV and I am currently testing and reviewing it.

Looking, touching and feeling the Motorola MOTOACTV, it’s a modern state of the art sporting device for many sports to adopt and use in their training and participation (whether it is personal leisure or professional sports). It’s the world’s FIRST GPS Fitness Tracker and MP3 player all in one! Many sporting folks want to have the heart rate monitor function, it helps them to know more about their body, the peak heart rate or the threshold that they can take, keeping a record of their heart rates for sports performance improvement.

The MP3 keeps you company when the sporty action person inside you is training and concentrating hard with your MP3 songs keeping you motivated, away from the distractions. In any sports activities and participation, you will sweat it out. Don’t worry about it! It is sweat-proof, rain-resistant and features a scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass display so you can work out anywhere!

Yes, you can play a part to help by spreading the awareness of slavery and human trafficking that is still lingering in our world today, EmancipAsia’s link on “What Can You Do” will certainly be useful.
