Nokia has announced the N79 Active, a new variant of its N79 smartphone that will come with the Nokia SportsTracker application, as well as a Bluetooth WearLink heart rate belt from Polar. The setup will allow you to get more information from your exercise routines, which can be uploaded to the SportsTracker website. The Nokia CP-324 elastic armband case is also included.
Nokia SportsTracker is an application that runs on your phone and uses the onboard GPS receiver, accelerometer, and data connection to track your workouts. Data is then uploaded to your account on the SportsTracker website. Users can track miles ran, heart rate, average speed, and the music they listened to at various points in their workout.
