A Simpler Exercise Gadget

“Sometimes personal technology for exercise can get a little cumbersome, as pointed out today by Daneille Belopotosky over on the Gadgetwise blog. In one of my early runs, I set out with a bulky GPS watch that communicated with a heart monitor that was strapped to my chest, a foot sensor that beamed information to an iPod Touch in an armband that occupied the greater part of my upper arm, and headphones. I have to admit, I was a little geeked out. One way to simplify is the Nike Sportband, a streamlined and sporty way to collect your workout data. Danielle writes about it in the latest Marathon Tech Review.”
