Late last year, we already gave information on Motorola’s MOTOACTV as the company’s answer to the iPod Nano. Now, we have received word that Motorola is working on an update which will provide more functionality to the fitness tracker and music player watch.

Over the previous months, Motorola has provided a few software tweaks. But the update (set for March) will expand the watch’s tracking abilities from running, biking, walking, and to a whole other range of exercises such as dancing, yoga, martial arts, and Pilates. If you are a user of the smart watch, this will be great news to you, especially if you are among the many who has requested for a greater range of activity support.

Apart from the additional activity support, the MOTOACTV now has the ability to activate its display with a flick of the wrist. Also, the update lets users set Wi-Fi networks directly from the device; and also compete against other users through its own MOTOACTV online portal.

This is a great move for Motorola in keeping the MOTOACTV highly marketable, especially with other new smart watches starting to emerge in the market.
