Phone-based fitness

Bones in Motion will soon start offering phone based applications to help track your physical activities. Sprint and Nextel phones with GPS capabilities (and apparently Assisted-GPS) will be first on the list. The service called Bimactive is being announced today through a Press Release and it is now [update Feb 24, 2006] available.

According to the FAQ, heart monitors won't be supported for combined use with cell phones because "the frequencies supported by popular heart monitors are incompatible with mobile phones". But users of devices like the Forerunner from Garmin can use Bimactive Online which supports blogs and RSS.

Hey, we're glad you found us. Note that BiM Active also lets you log your activites on a free journal, including drawing them on a Google map, and annotation and blog publishing.
