I know it's tiny and probably pretty silly, but who doesn't want one of these rooted and sporting the Honeycomb launcher and the Android Market? :D

GPS
WiFi
Bluetooth
FM Radio
relays calls/texts from Moto smartphone in BT range, etc....
plays games

Now that the Team Eos ICS nightlies have (at least temporarily) satisfied my need for major new tech expenditure, as I feel like my Xoom has been reborn, I really want this cute little feller, but not as a fitness watch (ugh!). :eek:

What do you all think?

The root process fairly simple adding apps is a bit tough cuz you have to pull them from another device and adb install them to the motoactv.
You also have to do some key remapping to get a menu to work.
This is where most of us have been posting ..

PLAY WITH CAUTION IT IS VERY EASY TO SOFT BRICK THE DEVICE AND MAKE IT UNRECOVERABLE :)


EDIT: the launcher I'm using is Zeam launcher

I could see some potential for using it has an interface for notifications on your tablet or phone.

e.g notification comes in on your phone and you see it on your watch - so you don't even need to pull out your phone.

I'm not sure if it has a vibrator in it, but that could also be an interesting alarm clock!

With the hacked app you do recieve calendar and text notification ...if you have a motorola phone you can answer phone calls and decline them

Edit: no vibration though:'(
