With today's trend towards a more health conscious population, health monitoring devices are becoming more popular (i.e. heart rate monitors, pedometers, etc. .). As with the trend towards instant communication, personal communica- tion devices are also becoming more popular (i.e. pagers, portable radios, etc. .). It would be advantageous to combine some of these devices to minimize the quantity of devices that a person would need to carry. Combining a pager with a pedometer would solve one of these problems.
