You can get receivers for Polar chest straps that signal beats with gpio-accessible pulses. If the Neo1973 isn't completely packed inside, it should be an easy add-on. And Polar doesn't seem to mind other people doing better and cheaper software, so long as it requires buying Polar hardware. -Daniel *This .sig left intentionally blank* _______________________________________________ OpenMoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
