I expect about an hour's worth of time with the screen on for the duration. It's a cool starting point though.
I thought that finally there's some external hardware integration with the iPhone. I remember when they had the keynote and Steve was talking about integrating stethoscopes and such--nothing for years.
I don't know if I'd trust it mountain biking, though, and it would have been cool if it had an off-board battery kit. Also, the lack of hard buttons are going to make it impractical for cold weather or off road full-glove riding, as the capacitance screen won't work.
MotionX GPS does soft of the same thing without the cadence and calories burned and it has a $3 price tag (or the free lite version). The MotionX also works with hiking and it allows you to turn the screen off AND follow a course (like poor man's navigation).
But seriously--this is headed in the right direction.
