Heart Rate Monitor For Nike+ To Track Your Ticker

It's been a long time coming, but finally Nike has teamed up with Polar for a wearable heart-rate monitor that works with the Nike+ SportBand and iPod Sport Kit.

Worn around the chest, the Polar WearLink+ sends the heart-rate to the Nike+ kit, which is then transferred to the NikePlus.com service for tracking against all the other stats. So now you'll know just how hard your little heart is working when you're jogging those 15km.

It's also compatible with other Polar fitness gear, if you happen to already own some. On sale this month in the US, and Europe in July, it'll cost about $US50. [BusinessWire]
