UPDATE Nike+ heart rate monitor to support iPhone and iPod touch this fall

The rumors for the heart rate monitor (HRM) were rekindled just a few weeks ago when an official Nike+ forum member announced the Nike+ HRM would be coming June 1st. That date has come and gone, but today it’s officially out. It’s currently only compatible with the Nike+ Sportband and 5th generation iPod nano. I have a feeling it won’t be too long before we get an update (iOS 4?) for iPhone and iPod touch that supports this as well.

Also, similar to Nike+ / Apple collaboration, the HRM  is manufactured by Polar.

Nike news:

Now you can put more heart into every run by tracking your heart rate with the new Polar Wearlink+ Transmitter. Just fit the strap snugly around your chest and take it for a spin to hear spoken feedback and see your beats per minute during your Nike+ iPod workout, or see the same information while you run with the Nike+ SportBand. And that’s just the start of it. Nikeplus.com gives you an even better read on your progress.

It’s available for purchase $69.95 on the Nike+ website.
