Would You Use a Phone As a Fitness Aid?

While some Japanese dieters have already started using their camera phones to record their food intake one cell company has taken the notion of using your phone as a weight loss aid to a whole new level.

Japan's largest cell phone carrier NTT DoCoMo has released a "Fitness Phone" that was designed to keep owners healthy and feeling minty fresh. The phone features "various devices that can measure your pulse or the amount of steps you've taken in a day, dispenses heath advice after you've punched in statistics such as gender, age and weight," according to Reuters. My favorite feature is the fact that you can exhale into the phone and it will let you know if you have bad breath.

The NTT DoCoMo company is targeting "fat-fighting middle-aged businessmen and young women on diets." I know Fit would agree with me saying that a phone won't change your fitness level or commitment to staying healthy, but if you can use it as a motivator more power to you.

I don't see why this has to be a phone, if people want a device like this, why does it have to have a phone?
