The system uses the Alive Bluetooth Heart Monitor, a Bluetooth GPS and Microsoft Windows Mobile Smartphone worn by each runner. It can be used to monitor the progress and physical condition of marathon runners."</i><br /><br />Interesting, will the runners be stopped if any parameters get out of line? I wonder what phones they will be using.
