These algorithms, and others like them, are important. Hardware manufacturers are eventually going to reach their limit in terms of low power consumption, and software is going to have to enable these devices to stay within power budget.

Rich, my wife started wearing one when she started training for a recent cancer walk.  Her friend's husband runs a running shoe store, so they had them.  At a recent get together I noticed that the husband was wearing one as well, and as we sat at the bar, everyone with their hands toward the bar it was interesting since they all had the same device on the same wrist.  I was the odd man out (as usual).  I guess I will be wearing one soon.

One way to integrate these devices is to hook them to a cell phone.  Low power near field communication technologies make this possible.  Powerful smart phone are a perfect integration platform for many personal sensors, both fitness and medical.
