Fitness tracking symbian

The Tizen Association was formed to guide the industry role of Tizen, including requirements gathering, identifying and facilitating service models, and overall industry marketing and education. [5]

Members of the Tizen Association represent major sectors of the mobility industry, from numerous areas of the world. Current members include telecommunications network operators and electronics manufacturers: Fujitsu , Huawei , Intel , KT , NEC Casio , NTT DoCoMo , Orange , Panasonic , Samsung , SK Telecom , Sprint and Vodafone . [6] While the Tizen Association decides what needs to be done in Tizen, the Technical Steering Group determines what code is actually incorporated into the operating system to accomplish those goals. Tizen roots back to the Samsung Linux Platform (SLP) and the LiMo Project and in 2013 Samsung merged its homegrown Bada project into Tizen. [7]

Samsung became the only Tizen member incorporating and developing the operating system, increasingly distributing it to its products and planning to use it as its flagship operating system.

Smartphone use by healthcare workers is a growing market. It is estimated that 72%, of 661,000 US physicians (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010, p. 2) use smartphones in their practice (Dolan, 2010, para. 1). According to Physicians Money Digest (May, 2011), the iPhone is the most popular smartphone used by US physicians with 75% of those physicians polled have at least one Apple device.

Functionality between smart watches and fitness trackers increasingly overlaps these days. If you have a watch with the various sensors to pick up your step counts and Bluetooth to send the data to a phone, it is not that far of a leap to blow things out to a full smart watch suite. With the advent of the Android Wear ecosystem, that has definitely become a lot easier to accomplish. The latest entry for that would be the just-announced Polar M600. I'm definitely not in the camp of everyday (or even casual) smart watch users, but the fitness spin on the Polar M600 speaks to me.

While I would not go so far as to say that workout gear and gadgets motivate me to get to the gym, they certainly can make things more interesting. The big thing in that regard that the Polar M600 brings to the table - at least for how I use things - is the heart rate, right on the wrist. Currently, I've got a watch and chest strap setup that I use. Now, this is accurate and it works; trying out something that is all-in-one, though, that has some appeal, for sure.

Unlike my current workout partner, the Polar M600 is using the Android Wear operating system, as I mentioned before. This means that there is a whole world of apps to interact with on the touchscreen of the device, as well as the ability build on how the device talks to your phone (an Android-based one, in my case). I have been paying more attention to these lately, and there seems to be quite a few clever apps that would augment and automate some things at the gym.
