Motorola Motoactv :: Device Stoped Counting Calories/Distance During Workout

Mar 21, 2012

I had a great workout this morning, but when I was done, the calorie count was at 111. I worked out for 50 minutes and was expecting this to be at least 600.

When I uploaded the data, the calorie count stopped at about 10 minutes into the workout and the distance also stopped incrementing. I had heart rate information, but it was much lower than what I expected (I was working out much harder than the heart rate information shows.).

The image shows the results of the data. what could have caused this malfunction of the device?

Motorola Motoactv :: Correcting Distance After Workout?

Jan 23, 2012

I have scoured the forums looking for an answer to this question but have not been able to locate one. I have found now, 8 runs in that the distance the MOTOACTV is showing is worsening rather than becoming more accurate. I have seen posts from other stating that they corrected the distance after their workout but I did not see details on how to do e also read to not recalibrate. That the MOTOACTV will become more accurate with time but my experience is that it is worsening. Should I recalilbrate or just manually adjust the distance once I know how to do

Motorola Motoactv :: Device Wouldn't Sync Workout?

Jun 2, 2012

After I owned my Motoactv for about a month, the device refused to sync workouts. I tried everything with the help of tech support, and finally sent the device into Motorola for repair. It came back with a note saying everything was great. Unfortunately, that did not solve the problem (music would sync, but workout sync was always "failure").I decided to try creating an entirely new account for the motoactv, and that actually worked. I have no idea why, but it worked and I have not had any problems for the past month with syncing.The only thought I have as to why is that just before the device "broke" I had tried to schedule a workout from the website for a pre-determined route for bicycling, but oddly the workout never showed up on the device.The Motorola tech support, though thoughtful, was completely unable to resolve this, even when I sent the device in for repair.I do wish I could try the schedule workout again to pre-plan a route for running or biking, but I don't want to have to come up with yet another new account on a new email address (I have run out of email addresses).

Motorola Motoactv :: Calories And Steps Disappeared?

Jan 4, 2013

I recieved the Motoactv for Christmas. I was just getting into using it for daily routine baselines when the calorie and steps stopped displaying on the time screen. I noticed this occurence in the morning and thought it was a daily reset issue and it might clear it self. However, 2 days later the steps and calories are still not displaying. I was thinking I could have accidently changes a setting. I have played around through the settings and can't find a selection to turn those on or off.

Motorola Motoactv :: How Does MA Calculate Calories Burned

Jan 20, 2012

Since there is no way to bypass a sensor for indoor spin class, I had to set my MA to stairstepper. I chose SS over Eliptical because I assume that the MA device would look for foot movement (to calculate calories) instead of arm movement (because the notes specifically say not to grip the stationary handles on the eliptical). Anyhow, I completed a 60+ minute spin class at vigorous effort for at least half and had an average heart rate around 75% and it said I only burned 300 calories. I know that 1 hr of spin burns close to 600 calories..does the MA device take into consideration the type of exercise chosen (e.g. stair stepper) and uses that activity blended with HR and motion to calculate the calories burned? If that is the case, then MOTO needs to do two things: 1) allow users to bypass sensors for exercise so they can still capture the proper exercise and not a "general" one and 2) create a "general" one for quick start options if someone doesn't care to record the activity type. It all depends on how calories burned are calculated.In the meantime, which activity should I use for Spin class....if the hands don't move, I would think that eliptical is not a good choice. What about running or walking...does that use arm movement also? Overall, would love a little more info on how the measurements are calculated.

Motorola Motoactv :: Calories Count Not Resetting?

May 4, 2012

Problem Description: My device did a sw update last night. This morning when I went to put on the device, Steps Count was at Zero (As Expected) and Calorie Count was at 3500. I would tyically see a count of 500 - 600 in the morning. When I took off the device last night it was at 3100. So i am assuming that the unit did not reset the calorie counter at midnight.Any Thought MOT Guys?HW: MOTOACTV 8GBSW: MA 1.6.13 N8

Motorola Motoactv :: How To Reset Steps And Calories Burned

Apr 19, 2012

I can't imagine this hasn't been asked before, but my search-fu isn't doing too well on these forums. How does someone reset their calories burned and steps taken on their motoactv? Mine says something to the affect of 1200+ steps and 2000+ calories burned... but I imagine that's because it was in my car when I went to and from work. I never used it beyond that and testing at home.

I'd imagine the factory reset will do it, but I don't want to have to start all over again. You would think there would be a simple button to reset those stats.

Motorola Motoactv :: Distance Is Not Calculating All Way

Feb 27, 2012

If you see the screenshot, you will notice that the end marker is not where I finished (green flag).Does this mean it doesn't pick up the last bit of my route? Does this mean it doesn't time it correctly? Does this mean that the map is off but the time and distance are correct?

Motorola Motoactv :: Use It Indoor Without Distance?

Aug 27, 2012

I am trying to understand how I can do an indoor activity without getting speed and distance data in the results.I have used the Motoactv primarily for outdoor training for hiking, walking, mountain biking, and inline skating. Additionally, I am using for various indoor activities including plyometrics, weightlifting, indoor cycling, and indoor inline speed skating.I have been able to understand the use of GPS for speed and distance calculations (albeit with a number of accuracy impacting calculation concerns as noted in other posts in this forum). What I do not understand is the speed and distance calculations for the indoor activities. Nor do I have any idea on how the accelerometer (or pedometer) capabilities are used in speed and distance in conjunction with GPS for outdoor activities.

Specifically, for indoor activities other than those which are directly correlated to running, walking, cycling, or an elliptical, how are the speed and distance calculated? For example, when I did an hour of weightlifting using that category, the workout results showed that I had travelled over a mile with various speeds. It seems sensible to me that only a few of the indoor workout categories make sense for speed and distance data. I would not expect yoga or weights to track distance. Additionally, in a pretty intense indoor speed skating practice yesterday, I used the Motoactv for the first time to track my HR data. It produced some speed & distance data for the times in which I was skating, but the accuracy was in no way close. I expected no speed & distance data & I would not expect accurate data for inline speed skating (although that would be awesome). how the various indoor activities use the pedometer for speed calculation? Failing that, does anyone know how to stop an indoor activity from tracking speed & distance? Or finally, do any of the indoor activities NOT generate speed & distance?

The Motoactv device has a lot of functionality over & above competitive GPS watches in it being able to intelligently use the GPS or the pedometer for distance calculation for the specific activity. Hopefully, it also has the software logic to NOT calculate speed & distance for certain activities. Recent Garmin devices allowed you to "Use Indoor" if it could not find a GPS signal which turned off all speed/distance calcs. To prevent inaccurate non-sensical data on the Moto, we need to be able to specify activities without speed/distance or be able to turn off GPS & pedometer for specific activities.

Motorola Motoactv :: Is A Speed Sensor Used For Distance

May 8, 2012

Typical cycling computers use the sensors to measure both distance and speed. When an ANT+ speed sensor is used with the MotoACTV, does it get used for distance as well, or just speed? I commute in downtown Chicago and would welcome the more accurate distance measurement in addition to the GPS route tracking.

Very innacurate readings. See below comparing MOTOACTV with my GARMIN 705and I know the garmin distance to be correct since I know the roads pretty well, and I created the routes using google mapsI expect some type of difference between GPS devices, for example my iphone using wahoo does not always agree witht he garmin, but the difference is less than 1%... with the MOTOACTV the difference is about 10%MOTOACTV (34 mi): (30 mi): (44mi): (40 mi): (48mi):

Motorola Motoactv :: Biking - Reported Distance Is Wrong?

Jul 8, 2012

I've had issues with the distance being way off while hiking/jogging on trails. While annoying, I decided I could live with it as I really liked the MotoActv as a bike computer.Today, it let me down on the bike. It under reported the distance by almost 3 miles. Looking through the CVS file, I am not sure why this occured. It doesn't look like the GPS dropped out during the ride. The battery in my speed/candance sensor died 21 minutes into my 70 minute ride but I wouldn't expect this to matter for the distance. I also used my Garmin 910XT and it correctly reported the distance. It's frustrating as it has been very accurate on the bike. It had been the one reason I have kept it and not returned it.

Motorola Motoactv :: Can Track Club Distance Averages

May 1, 2012

Will the MOTOACTV Golf Edition track shot averages? It appears to only show the shot distance if I am marking shot locations, and then I don't see the information anywhere after (including on the online portal, where it isn't listed on the map with the other information like club selection, which seems odd). I would expect the device to track and store shot distances, and also calculate averages.

Motorola Motoactv :: Pace/distance Measurement When GPS Signal Lost

Mar 31, 2012

On a run today I went down a spiral ramp under a bridge and lost my gps signal several times. I was wearing a footpod. I noticed my pace measurement slowed down from a 6 min mile to about 18 min/mi.

1st question...since I had a paired footpod shouldn't it have taken over to make the pace measurement more accurate in situations exactly like this?

2nd question... assuming the footpod was taking over, how accurate is it since there seems to be no way to calibrate the actual footpod. Is the data from the footpod constantly being taken into account and then integrated back into my final workout stats?

Motorola Motoactv :: Golf Shot Distance, Without Pressing Start

Jun 29, 2012

I know that when you press "start" to mark your next shot the distance of the last shot flashes on the screeen.

Is there a way for me to see the distance from the last shot without locking in the position with the "start" button? This is a feature I would use all of the time with my other GPS unit to know how far away I was so I would know approximatly where to start looking for my ball if it wasn't sitting out in the open. Also very useful for letting your playing partners know how far their drives went.
