Nokia N79 Active Bundles Heart Monitor, Armband

The Official Nokia N79 Active.

When the economy gets tough, the tough start bundling. At least that’s the latest idea from Nokia, who recently introduced the Nokia N79 Active – a phone that comes bundled with a whole bunch of sportsy stuff.

Bundles are generally a very bad idea, at least for the consumer (see: Nintendo Wii bundles). Most of the time you end up with extra crappy junk that you wouldn’t have bought on your own but now you’re stuck with. The good news is the Nokia N79 Active isn’t a bad bundle. At 375 euros, it’s not ridiculously priced (compare to retail price of 350 euros for the stock N79), and it comes with some decent stuff:

  • Polar WearLink Bluetooth heart rate belt
  • “Sporty” Headphones
  • Armband
  • 4GB memory card

You also get the latest version of Nokia’s Sports Tracker software.

For those of you who need a memory refresh, the N79 is the next iteration of the N78/N82, a candy bar loaded with a lot of good stuff: 5 megapixel camera, dual LED flash, A-GPS, 3.5 mm audio jack, stereo speakers, you name it.

This Nokia N79 Active package really works well. It’s not as competitive sports driven as Polar or Suunto’s offerings but has great entertainment and community features for us normal fitness sports people. A test review can be found here:
