I confess- I LOVE technology.
About 3 weeks ago, my ipod Nano (3rd Gen), just suddenly quit. I went without for a few weeks, but it sooo hard to work out without music, so I finally dropped the dough on a brand new 2nd Gen Itouch! first of all, this thing is seriously cool! It's just like the iPhone, but w/o the phone & camera capability. You can download all kinds of cool apps.
One very cool thing is Weight Watchers mobile! As long as I have access to wi-fi, I've got access to my Etools whereever I go. That's surely going to come in handy!
But this is not necessarily about my ipod or WW mobile. It's about the new treadmill at the gym on the Navy base here. It's a Matrix treadmill with an LCD touch screen. It has a built-in fan, and a hookup for your ipod. The touch screen isn't super sensitive, so it can be a little difficult to maneuver things while you're running, but overall -very cool!www.matrix-fitness.com/products/treadmills/T7xe.asp
So the next cool thing I discover is the following day when I plug my ipod into my computer to charge/sync. I get this message from NikePlus. Basically, it had recorded all of my workout information and then it prompts you to send it to nikeplus.com, where you set up an account. Now, everytime I use that treadmill, I can log in my progress! It is soooo cool!( Collapse )
