How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Motorola's MOTOACTV may be the most versatile wearable fitness device on the market today — though that doesn't mean it's the best for everyone. The MOTOACTV can track just about any kind of workout, includes a media player, and it's rugged enough to handle sports like mountain-biking. It can also be upgraded with new functionality simply by downloading new apps. The downside? It's heavy, and its web site has some bugs and isn't user-friendly as those of competitors. If all you need to do is track steps, calories burned, and other basic workout stats, you may find a less expensive option like the gdgt Must-have Fitbit Ultra to be more appropriate. But if you want a full-featured, upgradeable, wearable (albeit heavy), fitness tracker, MOTOACTV gets the job done.
