To those who have been eagerly awaiting the new Sports Tracker site, well it is officially open for business! If you were a user of the old Nokia Sports Tracker Beta you still have until August 31, 2010 to import your workout history into the new site.
Here’s a statement from Nokia’s Ovi Team:
A big thank you to all Nokia Sports Tracker beta users!
After two and a half years of operation, the Nokia Sports Tracker beta service was closed on June 30, 2010. We’d like to say thank you to all the exercise enthusiasts who used the service and contributed valuable feedback to its improvement.
We want you to stay active, which is why you can keep tracking your workouts through a new, non-Nokia service provided by Sports Tracking Technologies available for free in Ovi Store. The new service is open for registrations at sports-tracker.com, and you’ll even be able import your workout history from Nokia Sports Tracker until August 31, 2010.
With the new web service, you will also be able to take part in the Sports Tracker competition, hosted by the Ovi Blog. All you need to do is make a funny or interesting shape with your workout, share it publicly in the service and send us the link to the workout. Check out more details about the competition from the Ovi Blog.
Why is Nokia ramping down Nokia Sports Tracker beta? Nokia Sports Tracker beta was an experimental, specialized vertical service letting people collect, and share their physical activities and routes using their mobile devices. Nokia’s strategy moving forward is to continue to deliver on the potential of this space, but through broader horizontal offerings that take advantage of our growing Ovi platform of services.
Thank you for using Sports Tracker beta and stay tuned for more to come from Ovi.

The Ovi competition looks interesting and if you have spare time in your hands I suggest you try the activity for a chance to win those enviable prizes. Sometimes I wish that I could upload my Garmin data to this site as well. 🙂
