“Apple currently has a number of fitness-oriented features available in its iPod line, but the Cupertino, Calif., company’s latest patent describes an extremely advanced system using unique technology. Among a number of described methods for measuring exertion during physical exercise include sensing light that travels through the user’s earlobe to determine blood oxygen levels,” Hughes reports
