Using this talking heart-rate monitoring MP3 player from Hammacher Schlemmer is a lot like working out while listening to the radio. But instead of the current top 20, you get to listen to your own music, and instead of crappy DJ banter every 1 to 5 minutes, it will pause your tunes to announce your current heart rate, or provide warnings when your pulse is above or below a predetermined target zone. An included chest strap does the actual heart beat monitoring duties, and wirelessly sends the data to the receiver/MP3 player which includes 1GB of memory, good for about 200 MP3 or WMA files. $79.95.
