I WANT THIS SO BAD.
Yes. It is amazing. It's a Heart Rate Monitor. :D It comes with a "foot pod" that you attach to your shoe that will track your distance and pace and all that good stuff, and without the footpod you can even take it swimming!!! It's water resistant up to 50 meters, which I'm sure I will never be that deep anyway.
Too bad it's SOOOOOOooooooo expensive. I can't help it though. Now that I'm getting healthy, I'm getting interested in all the gadgets that go with it. Because I'm a technophile. Maybe for Christmas? Next year? hahahahaa :D
I have a "Fitness Items" wish list on Amazon.com now with a stability ball, resistance bands, this and another more fancy model of the same kind. I found it because I really like the way the Nike+Ipod works, but of course I have an iPod video and like anyone who's been reading my blog knows, those don't go running! SO! They aren't compatible with the Nike+Ipod product -- smart enough for iPod so they aren't condoning people running with their dard disk memory iPods, which will then most likely break, and then it'll be all Apple's fault. So they were smart. It only works with the new Nano's, which are flash memory.
SO ANYWAY -- this does that and MORE, because it actually includes a HRM and you can take it swimming and all that good stuff. It does have software you can download your information into from the unit so that you can analyze your performance, etc. Seems to have gotten all positive reviews from users as well. (Have to look on the one that's BLACK for that, because no one reviewed on the RED version.) So it's about $210.00.
Something to aspire to -- maybe my goal reward?
