This phone can't be directly compared to any other. The only other sport-focussed phone (other than the Nokia predecessors to this model) in the market is the Sony Ericsson W710i, but this is the only phone with a built-in pedometer that enables a...

Nokia 5500 Sport review: Smartphone for active lifestyle

 

If Nokia 5500 Sport doesn't manage to win you with its combination of a modern Symbian and a resistant body, you will surely give in to its touchpad control, its numerous functions that help you enhance your physical condition, or to its incoming SMS...

Nokia 5500's surface is a true mosaic of materials of various kinds. Its keypad as well as the area around the display is almost entirely rubber, which creates an interesting contrast as the edges are made of glossy steel. Beneath the silver frame...

Review: Nokia 5500 Sport

 

Sam put his running shoes on and got active for the review of the Nokia 5500 Sport. While it has interesting features like a pedometer and 3D motion sensing, are they actually useful or just gimmicks? Read Sam's review to find out.

To be honest with you, I was not too impressed when I first started using the 5500.

Nokia say that the 5500 Sport should be available from Q3 2006 in a sober "Black" version or more funky "Grey" version (with brightly colours stripes!). The Nokia 5500 Sport should cost around 300 Euro before tax and subsidy.

The Nokia 5500 Sport is shock, water, and dust resistant. With the integrated digital music player you can listen to FM radio or MP3s to stay energized. Snap photos using the 2-megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom

The Stainless steel enfolded body, the keypad, all keys and last butnot least the battery cover are well made. No visible gaps, no faults.The keyboard - made of soft rubber - itself is a little stiff. This isbecause of his water and dustproof design....

Designed to withstand plenty of mistreatment, the Nokia 5500 Sport features a shock-proof and splash-proof casing targeted at the more active consumer...

Shock-proof and splash-proof casing, Instant swap key, Sports mode, Text-to-Speech capabilities, MP3 playback, Tapping functions, Excellent features list, S60 operating system

Keypad and controls are a mixed bag, Poor battery life

The 5500 Sport is a surprise package. It offers a number of excellent features, headed by casing for the more active consumer as well as sports and music modes. Importantly, it also happens to represent excellent value for money at this price.

It's aimed at outdoor types but does Nokia's 5500 Sport get a podium finish?

The Nokia 5500 Sport is tri-band and features Bluetooth and infrared built in. It is small and light – 103g and 107 x 45 x 18mm. The standard version, which I had, comes with a rather measly 64MB microSD card which, in the interests of dust and water...

A phone that can be your training buddy sounds like a great idea, and provided you don't want to break any records the Nokia 5500 Sport could be handy. But if you get serious about your training, you'll benefit from using far more sophisticated kit...

Small and ergonomic to use ; Seriously shockproof ; Tap control for music playback and reading out SMS messages

Pedometer is not an accurate measurer of distance travelled ; Awkward to wear on belt while running ; Needs a separate GPS antenna for best accuracy ; Not enough internal memory

If you are just getting into the fitness game this could be a handy little tool with which to start working on a schedule and getting some measurements to monitor progress -- just be prepared to graduate to something more sophisticated as your fitness...
