The new Nokia N79 Active pack just screams sports

14 Jan, 2009

Last month we saw the first leaks about the new wireless Polar heart monitor made for Nokia mobile phones. Well, now it’s official. And it comes in the company of Nokia N79 through a special retail combo.

The Polar WearLink Bluetooth heart rate belt allows you to monitor your heart rate while practicing so you can improve the way you train by staying focused on your training goals.

While you're training you can listen to the music stored on the 4 GB microSD card you'll find enclosed in the Nokia N79 Active pack. There will also be a pair of sports headphones and an armband which should make the Nokia N79 easier to wear while jogging.

At the same time you can monitor your heart rate using the handset, again, and see if you need to step up or if it's time for a little brake.

An updated version of the Nokia Sports Tracker application is expected to become available by the time the Nokia N79 Active hits the shelves (release time still unknown). The Sports Tracker allows keeping and sharing your workout records or favorite routes.

We still remember the first cooperation between the two Finn companies - Nokia and Polar. Back in 2004 they introduced the Polar S625X Running Computer and Polar S725 Cycling Monitor for Nokia 5140.

The Nokia N79 Active will only be available in select markets for an estimated price of 375 EUR before taxes and subsides.
