    Motorola has been sending a little survey out to a select few consumers gauging response to a new (presumably Android-based) product. No, it’s not a smartphone or even a tablet, it’s a small watch-like device designed for personal fitness and music. What could potentially be branded MotoActive most closely resemble Sony Ericsson’s LiveView or the iPod Nano, and would act as a standalone mashup of the two concepts with wireless syncing between your PC and Android devices and a “smart music player.” For now the device remains a concept that may never reach market, the results of this particular survey perhaps playing a role in the final decision. So how about out own informal survey. MotoActive personal fitness tracker/music player. Yay or nay?

    This looks identical to my iPod Nano. It's a great idea, but not a new one.

    i would much rather run cardiotrainer on this than my big, heavy ass droid3. this is a great idea, i would much rather have a device this small running android than just a tiny music player. this even has a heart rate monitor, so if it has gps it has potential to be amazing.

    yay. I was just thinking how nice it would be to have an android based Ipod. I guess in the end after I get my Bionic my OD can become my wifi device and my i pod touch.??? so maybe I don't need this new device. but using my OD as a watch would be a little bulky

    Depending on pricing, this could be a big hit.

    I want one! Better than carrying my phone with me and using the imapmyrun app to get my pace and calories burned.

    My question is how do I get headphones from my wrist to my ears? That would really annoy me. Especially when lifting weights, they could get in the way.

    If it has bluetooth, I would buy it today. We need more hardware that can compete with ipods, but aren't tethered to itunes.

    Yeah if this thing had a bluetooth headset it would be perfect. Even the mock up of the watch is something I would wear just as a watch. for the 25 and under crowd that's not a bad look. That coupled with it's small size, color touch screen, a different music interface than Itunes, workout apps, and being completely wireless would make me a costumer. From the mock up it looks like you might be able to remove it from the watch as well which would be nice when you just want a music player as well. The idea has a lot of potential and is way better than anything currently out today.

    First off, they need to ask me if they should make it and I would give them a resounding YES!!! Secondly, I can get on board with it right now as it stands which would be a very good competitor to the iPod. However, I do triathlons and if this had the capability to track my movements via GPS, had a heartrate sensor built in, waterproof because I would swim with it too, along with being able to perform other normal functions such as tell time, BT my stored music on it to the headphones I was wearing all at the same time, I would be willing to pay a pretty large sum for this device. Obviously later they could incorporate more things and more technology into but this could and most likely would have a huge initial first year in the active peoples market. Tri's, cyclist, runners, swimmers and a whole slew of other different sport disciplines. I look forward to this making it to market.

    If it has bluetooth, you could just ziplock bag it for waterproofing.

    I love my Sandisk Clip (superior in many ways to the IPod nano) and my Polar Heart rate monitor but if I could combine them + GPS that would be very convenient.

    Meh. I'd buy one for $5 or $10.
