A PhD thesis exploring the mobile device design considerations for the active lifestyle.

“Actively Mobile integrates traditional training tools with new mobile services, and enables voice communication with control. Because it is designed specifically for running, it is easy to use and supports the mindset of the runner in motion. Through a small device worn on the arm, wrist, or hip, the runer can access functionality only available currently by carrying several devices: a stopwatch, speedometer, heart rate montior, GPS, MP3 player, and mobile phone. Integrating these features creates new opportunities to support the running experience, including specialized servces desgined to aid motivation and performance.”
