The Nike+ system currently tracks a user’s workout with details about the elapsed time of the workout, distance traveled, pace, and calories burned, capturing information online for a long-term picture of a user’s activity. With a recently announced partnership with fitness gear manufacturer Polar, Nike+ devices will now also be able to sync with a heart rate monitor to track beats per minute for deeper fitness information. Syncing with a user’s iPod/iPhone, the Nike+ system is capable of giving the wearer audio feedback of their heart rate through their headphones.
