Nokia N79 Active sports Polar heart monitoring features

Nokia has chosen the smallest handset in its Nseries range to ship with the wireless Polar Bluetooth WearLink heart rate belt from Polar, enabling users to work on getting fit while having fun. The particular handset being referred to here is the Nokia N79 Active, which is supposed to be a “sportier” version of the already existing Nokia N79.

The Nokia N79 Active comes with pretty much the same features as the original. It has a built-in GPS, accelerometer, support for HSDPA data, a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and an FM transmitter to share tunes to any FM radio.

However it does come with some noteworthy accessories, among which is the earlier mentioned wireless Polar Bluetooth WearLink heart rate belt from Polar, and also sporty headphones and an armband as well as a 4GB microSD card.

The Nokia N79 will be made available later this year in select markets for EUR 375 or about $490 USD before taxes and subsidies.

    the N79 Active is a really ok bundle. Comes with some neat details. The device has a good camera Carl Zeiss 5Mpix, it makes you want to take a couple of shots outside, the connection to the belt works instantly and without interruptions and the ear plugs come in three different sizes, so that they don’t fall out of your ears so easily.

    I think they should do it with E52 which has built in GPS and very thin in size. They should also sell the Polar for Nokia as separate item so that more user of Polar and Nokia product can use it
