Cool Fitness Gadget: The Swirl

I wanted to tell you more about a cool fitness gadget that is a must have for this Spring: the Swirl.

The Swirl ($169) is an all-in-one heart rate monitor, music player, and virtual personal trainer. Together with the Swirlfit web service, it helps to improve your health and overall fitness by making it more fun and effective to work out. What's more? The Swirl is only one ounce. Swirlfit web service lets you create your own heart rate zone training programs and intensity-match them to your favorite music. All you have to do is plug in and download your data to your computer. It uses a single audio stream for coaching, heart rate and music. This way you can hear instructions, alerts, prompts and music at the same time.

It is a little pricey, but it's a cool way to get motivated if you have the extra funds and/or if you like to track yourself via charts and data. I just love that it is all in one since I always have several gadgets with me at the gym, it would be nice to consolidate. Your purchase includes: Swirl Personal Digital Trainer, standard headset, chest strap, USB cable, 3 months access to Swirlfit Online service (a $29.99 value). For more information and to buy it go here.

that's a pretty cool gadget. i thikn htat for the cost of a real personal trainer (which is a LOT more than $169) it makes sense. if you can program information into it and set goals and have it be accountable in real time, then it's a great thing. i might have to check it out a bit more.

I still prefer my ipod and my Polar watch and HRM. This thing looks bulky, even though it only weighs an ounce.

It looks cool, but something about the name; it sounds kinda... dirty. ):
