The Yahama BodiBeat quite literally plays tunes to match the tempo of your walk or run. Synchronization is accomplished through the built-in accelerometer. It also doubles as a heart monitor (clips to your ear), which enables the BodiBeat to adjust the music and workout to achieve 70% of max heart rate when in ‘fitness mode’. If you’re of the serious runner ilk, then you’ll enjoy ‘training mode’, which measures and tracks your workouts. Battery will last 9 hours, and holds about 100 songs (512mb of storage…I think).

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
