I guess this thing was/is sort of designed to compete with the Nike iPod solution??
Reply #3: Oct 27, 2011, 10:53am No the Garmin solution is much better for you can attach to a Garmin pedometer (aka Foot pod), cadence sensor, heart rate montitor and future ANT+ products. ANT+ is also used in spin bikes, BMI scales, treadmills and more. It is becoming a wireless standard for fitness and GPS data sharing.

Reply #5: Nov 3, 2011, 10:28am Does it work with the app on an iTouch at all? Knowing that there is no GPS functionality, does it still collect heart rate and cadence info or does the app simply not function without the GPS componants?
