Nike + Heart Rate Monitor Coming June 1

Nike+ Heart Rate Monitor Coming June 1

Ever since my iPhone with integrated Nike+ arrived, I've been charting my walks and runs with it every time I work out. I am more than a little excited that soon there will be a new accessory to add to the Nike+ system. Last Fall, Nike hinted that not only would the iPhone be able to track your time, distance, speed, and calories burned, but that it would also be able to monitor your heart rate. Finally, the Nike+ system goes all-in-one.

It looks like that idea comes to fruition and users on June 1. Engadget reported that come the beginning of next month, "Nike will deliver a Nike+ heart rate monitor iPod accessory to the US." This gadget will allow you to view your heart rate as you move while listening to your favorite tunes. We're still waiting on details about design, color, price, and which devices it will be compatible with, so we'll have to be patient for a couple of weeks. This sounds like something I'd be into, but tell me, do you think you'll get one?
