Check your fitness using your mobilephone

Sunday, October 7, 2007

This is certainly an interesting innovation. Washingtonpost has reported that a prototype mobilephone that can check your fitness level was invented. It can take your pulse, check your body fat, time your jogs and tell you if you have bad breath. It even assesses stress levels and inspires you with a pep talk.

This prototype Wellness mobile phone was invented by Japan's NTT DoCoMo Inc. that targets users with busy lives. It has an inbuilt motion sensor that detects body movement and calculates how many calories you burn. The sensor can tell whether you're walking, running, climbing stairs, or resting, and counts the calories accordingly to tally daily totals. It's with you wherever you go, like a portable personal trainer.
I would like to get one of this phone soon. Then, I can assess my calories in and out. I just wonder how much it will cost me.
