Sports Tracker gets touch polish, accessory support, step counting and zoomable maps
 
Reported widely today is a new over-the-air update to Nokia's GPS-uber-utility, Sports Tracker. v2.05 (up from v1.83) brings better touch support (map zoom icons, more reliable finger swipe screen transitions), plus N79-like support for the Polar heart rate monitor and (on compatible devices) the integration/backup of accelerometer-based step counting. You can get v2.05 by going into the application and using 'Check for updates'.

Read on in the full article.

It still does not support network destinations, as in you have to pick an specific access point and stick with it. :(

Any way to get this on Samsung?

Polar
 
Is there any way to buy that heart rate monitor without N79?

Tzer2 21-03-2009 10:57 PM

Polar is an independent company, I'm sure they'd be happy to sell you a heart rate monitor without a Nokia phone.

Tzer2 21-03-2009 11:01 PM

In fact here's the Polar website:

The program works fine but I canīt see the accelerometer-based step counting, where is it?

slitchfield 22-03-2009 12:42 PM

it's built-in. If you don't believe me, start a 'Run' and then jog on the spot etc 8-)

Sorry steve, I donīt understand you, I canīt see "number of steps" or something like that. Can you be more explicit? thank you in advance.

Now Nokia just needs to sell the HR belt!

Yes, come on Nokia/Polar, sell us the bluetooth heart rate belt separately!

I've seen so many people on different websites and forums that want the HR belt to go with their existing Nokia S60 device...

The heart rate belt is not a Nokia product, it's made by Polar.

Polar already sell the heart rate belt separately:

You can find your nearest Polar dealer from this link:

Just to stress again, Polar is a totally separate company to Nokia. They're both Finnish, but they're independent of each other.

Tzer2, the regular heart rate belt isn't using Bluetooth, I think, so it will not work with phones. Polar would have to start selling separately the Bluetooth version that now seems to be only bundled with the N79 Active.

The HR BT belt is _not_ for sale
 
If you check Polars forum, you can see that they don't have such a product on sale, except "business to business", i.e. through Nokia. What a fantastic blunder again to start upgrades for Sports Tracker but not having the accessory available except bundled with a N79.

Tzer2 23-03-2009 07:30 AM

Sorry, you're right that they're different products, the BT version isn't available in retailers. If you look at the images below hopefully you can see why I made the mistake, they have the same name and look virtually identical...

Blunder by who? Nokia don't make the monitor, and Polar don't make Sports Tracker.

As I said before, the heart rate monitor is made by Polar, so it's not Nokia's decision about selling it separately. The only people who would be able to sell it separately are Polar themselves. Post on Polar's forum if you want it to be sold separately, let them know you'd buy it.
