Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

Just when we were get­ting tired of the typ­i­cal Android de­vice, Sony Eric­s­son com­bined the con­cept of fit­ness with a smart­phone and came up with the Ac­tive. Sporty look­ing, the Ac­tive has been en­gi­neered to with­stand water and dust. For this, the com­pany has given it a scratch re­sis­tant, 3-inch ca­pac­i­tive dis­play along with two lay­ers of cover at the back. The charg­ing port and 3.5 mm jack are neatly cov­ered with air-tight lids.the phone has ac­ces­sories such as change­able rear cov­ers, a rub­ber wrist strap and an arm case and ear-hooks.

The Ac­tive suc­cess­fully sur­vived a water test and sweat test dur­ing a workout. It also has fit­ness ap­pli­ca­tions on board. The Walk­mate ap­pli­ca­tion, when launched, keeps a count of the daily foot­steps while show­ing the weekly av­er­age. It also comes with the imap­my­fit­ness+ ap­pli­ca­tion us­ing which you can cre­ate a pro­file and record workout and calo­rie bud­gets, etc. Along with the fit­ness apps, it be­haves like a typ­i­cal Android smart­phones by han­dling Google mails, Search, Mar­ket­place for down­load ap­pli­ca­tions, etc. There is a 5MP cam­era on­board that man­ages to cap­ture de­cent im­ages.
