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.
