Nike+ Now With Heart Rate

So the tip we mentioned a few weeks ago turned out to be true!

Nike just launched a Heart Rate Monitor made by Polar that is compatable with the Nike+ Sportband and iPod.  Here is the official update from Nike.

To be honest, I am not super excited about this one.  It would have been cool if the price point was right, but it seems priced rather high.  By the time you buy a Sportband ($60) and the Heart Rate Strap ($70) you are all in for $130.  For another $20 you could grab a Garmin Forerunner 305 and have GPS functionality. 

Don’t get me wrong… I love my Nike+, but my Garmin is a monster Cool

Thoughts?
