Nokia Sports Tracker

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, but I wanted to share something cool that I found.

It’s called the Nokia Sports Tracker and you can use it for tracking your workouts. As friends of mine will know, I do a bit of running. Sometimes it’s handy to know how far you’ve gone or how quickly you did it in.

Just put your recent Nokia phone with built-in GPS (or add a bluetooth GPS unit, if you don’t have it built in) in your pocket when you go running, cycling, walking to track your distance and speed. What’s really cool is that if you have mobile internet access, you can send your data in real-time so others can see your progress plotted on a google maps interface.

Last Saturday, I decided to try it out. You can check out my run details here:

    Hey AB, lucky your phone is waterproof cos it looks like you went for a bit of a snorkel too, you got down to 31.3m below sea level 😉

    Yeah, I don’t know what’s up with that. It seemed strange to me, but I don’t know if that’s actually accurate or not.

    That’s pretty cool.

    I’ve been using a Polar F11 and software called “SportTracks” to plot my HR and shiz. Doesn’t do distance though, but most of my exercise is on a stationary bike anyway.
