Gadget of the Day – Nokia N79 Active

Nokia's come over all healthy in 2009, unleashing a spanking new version of their Sports Tracker service and a souped up phone to make sure you don't

The Nokia N79 Active is being billed as 'a healthy twist' on the the N79, with a specially designed armband to keep the phone in place while you're out pounding the pavements, plus a Bluetooth Polar heart rate monitor.

Sync it all up with the bundled Sports Tracker software, which uses the on–board GPS, and you can see where and how far you've run, how many calories you've eased off and even what your other pals are up to in the fitness stakes.

You get 4GB of on–board storage, meaning you can file away roughly 1,000 banging house and happy hardcore tunes to keep you pumped while you're on a run.

It's due out imminently for around £350, but expect to see it on contract everywhere soon too. For more on Sports Tracker, check out our full review.
