MOTOACTV smartwatch price slashed by $100
You may remember the little Android powered device that Motorola dubbed the ultimate fusion of music and fitness known as the MOTOACTV. While there was a lot to like about this device when we reviewed it, we thought the biggest issue with it was price.

It’s not clear if Motorola has come to its senses and realized that the price was a huge barrier to entry for most people or if it has something new in the works and is looking to clear out some units, but it has slash $100 off each model of the MOTOACTV on its website. You can now snag an 8GB, 16GB, or a Multi-Sport Edition for $149.99, $199.99, or $299.99 respectively.

Saving $100 is always a sweet deal, but is it sweet enough to entice people to get their fitness on with the MOTOACTV? We’re not sure, but interested parties can head on over to Motorola’s website in the source link to take advantage of the new lower prices.

I'll just wait until they take another hundred off that price.

I agree. This is still over-priced. Moto has a ways to go before they can sell these in volume.

For $50 less than the priciest one, I can get a Nexus Tablet (16GB) There are many free apps you can use to train, and even if they don't offer as many features... $150 for the basic model is still too much... I rather go with my Atrix on my arm band and BT headset.

I LOVE MOTO hardware, but the price is still too high!

I concur, love Moto hardware, but with a Android smartphone, get an app for that, an armband, and be on your merry way. I would buy one if the entry level ACTV was $100
