Motorola's MOTOACTV nabs the title of being the best Bluetooth device of CES 2012
Unless you were hiding in an underground cave last week, there was this big event called CES 2012 that occurred in Las Vegas, Nevada – where the newet tech were shown off for the very first time. Besides smartphones, we were able to check out some sweet Bluetooth enabled accessories, such as the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 and Sony’s SmartWatch.

Considering those devices made their debut at the big show, one would suspect them to garner a lot of attention, and ultimately winning an award of some sort. Strangely, neither of those devices managed to go the distance in obtaining the prestigious titles of being the 2012 Bluetooth SIG Best of CES Awards. Rather, the title belongs to the Motorola MOTOACTV – the Android based fitness/music watch device that we’ve reviewed already.

Yes, we know what you’re thinking, the MOTOACTV was officially launched way before CES 2012 commenced, but nevertheless, it was able to capture the attention of the Bluetooh SIG more than anything else. Well, we have to give some kudos to the watch like contraption seeing it perfectly integrates with an Android powered smartphone to link up fitness data and record workout sessions.

As we know, there’s a lot of cool technology behind the MOTOACTV, which is possibly one of the best fitness devices to come around in a while, but we’re still a bit skeptical when you factor in its price point. Perhaps, if you’re able to overlook that one item and truly see all of the potential surrounding it, there’s no arguing it’s worthy of some kind of award.

You can find it for $200 on Amazon. This is in line with most of the newer Garmin Forerunner's (except this does a whole lot more)!

As long as they keep the updates coming, this watch will continue to be awesome. I got one for Christmas and am thoroughly satisfied.
