All Together Now(SM)
“I have a running watch, a bike computer, use exercise equipment at the gym, have an iPod and a mobile phone yet I had no way to see all of my fitness data in one place until I tracked it all manually,” says Michael Williams, Founder and CEO of iTMP . “Now, with our revolutionary Digifit Ecosystem all of my cardio exercise information is tracked in one central repository on the iPhone. And because I have it all together now on one internet-enabled device, with one tap I can send my data to the cloud.”
"We are very excited about the launch of the Digifit Ecosystem and the Digifit Connect iPhone accessory," stated Brian Macdonald, Director, ANT Wireless. "Now millions of iPhone and iPod touch users worldwide will have a plug-and-play alternative that allows them to conveniently track their health & fitness. ANT+ interoperable sensors help to make it all a seamless, end-to-end solution."
ANT is available on Nordic Semiconductor products (the AP1 and AP2 family). A family of network node products will be available from Texas Instruments starting 2Q 2010. All ANT parts support ANT+.
