Live webcast from runners in London Marathon using Bluetooth heart monitor, Smartphone and GPS
Alive Technologies will stream a live webcast from runners in the London Marathon, using their Bluetooth heart monitor, Windows Mobile Smartphone and GPS platform.

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.

This information is then transmitted to a server, on-line and real-time via GPRS. Viewers, coach and other interested users can then log into a website where the current position and athlete's condition can be tracked, or replayed

The website shows the runners position on a map of the London Marathon course in real time, with graphs of their ECG, heart rate, speed and altitude.

Dates and time for the webcast are:

Live Event Start Time Sunday 17th April 2004
UK 9:45 AM BST
Europe 10:45 AM CEST
USA East Coast 4:45 AM EDT
USA West Coast 1:45 AM PDT
Australia 6:45 PM EST
New Zealand 8.45 PM

Duration: Approximately 5 hours with a replay available after the event.
