Summer is fast approaching - even if it doesnt feel like it -
and its about that time to start working on your beach body. I swear I wanted to go out and jog, but I had
to type this up.
What can I say is, Im willing to sacrifice for you guys.
Fortunately for all of us, Samsung and Adidas got together to help you get motivated
with a phone that is also an exercise buddy.
The miCoach, which will launch next month in the UK, has
everything youd expect and a few things you might not. Features:
and Bluetooth connectivity1 gig
MP3s, AACc, WMAs, MPEG4s and H.263s
It allows you to customize your workout with specific goals
in mind such as target heart rate, number of steps stepped, number of calories
burned and distance run. After it's
all over, you hook it up to your PC to keep a log.
A couple of years ago, Nike and Apple teamed up to create the
Nike+, a workout tracking system that consists of a sensor you place in your
Nike+ running shoe, and a module that you connect to your iPod. The tempo of
the music is determined by how hard and fast you run.
Well, they are at it again, but this time theyre bringing
the workout indoors. Theyre working with various gym equipment manufactures to
create machines that the iPod will plug into and track your exercise
progress. You should start seeing these
new devices this summer.
After the workout is done, sit back and relax with Will.I.Ams
blog/social networking site dipdive.com. Whats cool is he has partnered with
RIM to bring dipdive and its content to Blackberry. I think the corporate world
is starting to realize how important our dollar is.
