Similarly, the bicycle could carry the number of sports and fitness aware sensors which can communicate to the GPS navigator mounted on the bike or wearable as wrist watch by the athlete cyclist. The mini-network organically exchanges the important heart rate monitored and other training athlete information along with GPS real time positioning information. In case the GPS device is equipped with the megapixel camera the GPS coordinates could be automatically embedded into the photographs and images taken by the GPS device camera.
