    I am really psyched about getting a new phone to replace my BB Storm 1 and even more so after seeing all the reviews of the new android devices coming out for Big Red.

    I was pretty much set on the GN until i came across the MOTOSACTV.

    https://motoactv.com/

    I was wondering if there is or are comparable devices for the GN. I exercise a lot and have been in the market for a heart rate monitor. This device really intrigues me and the fact it is tethered to Motorola Android phone(s).

    thanks in advance as always.

    I clicked on your link and found the attached file on the xda forum. I used chrome to phone and just downloaded the .apk straight to my GSII epic touch and it worked without a problem.

    Thanks for providing the link. I haven't gotten the MotoActive yet, but I think I will definitely get it now that I know it will work with a non-Motorola phone.

    Please let me know how you like if ABC of it works on a treadmill. Only reason I have an iPod still.

    I installed this apk on my Evo, and it seems to work, but I don't actually get the notifications. My phone shows the motoactv as "paired but not connected". Any ideas how I can get these two devices to play nicely together?
