As someone who has recently discovered the power of self-tracking I find this article interesting and exciting.  I've been running regularly for about six months.  I run with my wife and with several friends.  My wife and I both use the Nike+ app on our iPhone to help us track our progress.  Several of my friends wear heart rate monitors and connected Garmin devices.  I look forward to seeing how the self-tracking movement progresses with better standards for Bluetooth devices.  Bring it on, Health Monitoring!

All are interesting devices, and yes, I want one of each :)
