Here is how I would have responded to a heckler:

@127.0.0.1

Your post is offensive and dismissive. Please post more often.

Looks like an interesting novelty for overweight people looking to get in shape (which seems to be their target market.) So that's good. (Reminds me of the Nike+...)

I don't see much use for cyclists though, as the functionality is more for walking and seeing if you are simply moving around.
