Motorola officially unveiled the Motoactv, a stand-alone music and fitness device, today at their press event.

The Motoactv is a small iPod Nano-esque device that you can wear on your wrist like a watch. It sports a 600MHz processor, runs Android (version unknown at the moment) and weighs 35 grams. The obvious Nike+ competitor can track your heart rate (via separate in-ear bluetooth headset), log your running/walking/cycling/etc. activities via built-in GPS. The waterproof device can hold up to 4,000 songs and also includes an FM radio tuner and “audio coaching”, which helps to provide inspiration – updating based on pace and distance.

The device will cost $249 for the 8GB model and $299 for the 16GB. The heart rate monitor-capable bluetooth headsets that can work alongside the device will set you back $149 for the SF700 and $99 for the SF500.
