"does it keep track of distance" Almost all phones have GPS now,which can easily track distance. so whats the point of integrating that into this device? Also I wouldnt want to tie up a bigger battery to my chest to drive the GPS chip.

I wonder how much slimmer this is to the Polar heart rate belt. In addition, how does the pricing compare to solutions from Nike, Garmin, Fitbit and other manufacturers who have a leg up when it comes to the social media aspect? In addition to heart rate monitoring, does it keep track of distance, and other important factors?
