Do Sport at Stand 129

Posted in Sport, Tech by Tony C on October 19, 2006

A rather lovely C600...If your a skiing or snowboarding nut then you’ll probably find your way to the Metro Ski and Snowboarding Show at Olympia this week…it runs until this coming Sunday 22nd so there is still plenty of time.  If as well as snow based activities you want to know how how far, fast and high you ski my chums at SportsDo have the answer.  Take one Windows Mobile Smartphone or Pocket PC (ok if you insist…phones that can run Java as well) add a GPS unit and copy of the SportsDo smart client and you can record all the telemetrics as you carve up the slopes.  You can then upload to them to the SportsDo web site and share your heroic antics but also get a bunch of more sophisticated mapping tools to show how everyone just how good (or bad) you are.  They’ve have also mapped 51 resorts in America and a growing number in Europe so you can track your mates, find the elusive ‘apres ski’ locations and the slopes you haven’t tried yet. 

It’s also great for lots of other activities too, walking, running, cycling in fact anything where telemetric measurement is important, as such it can be used as a serious training tool.  Now in version 2.1 the boffins at SportsDo have lots more ideas and additions they’re working on…Oh I forgot to say you can upload the photos from the Smartphone as well, it’s well under half the price of say a Garmin and ten times more functional.   Genuis!
