Excellent, Cheap Motivator,
This review is from: Apple Nike and iPod Sensor (discontinued by manufacturer) (Accessory)
This is an excellent, low-cost gadget that really spurs you on, however a quick note...
*** NIKE+ ONLY WORKS WITH IPOD NANO / IPOD TOUCH / IPHONE - ie NOT CLASSIC IPODS! ***
This caught me out initially - thankfully there is an older ipod nano II knocking around my house!
Hooked up to the Nike+ website, there are innovative challenges, tracking reports and all sorts of other info to keep track of your activities & progress.
Setup is easy - plug the bit into your ipod, then briefly press the sensor. I am using a pouch as opposed to the official Nike shoes, and it works fine. You can calibrate it if you want, but it's pretty accurate as far as I can tell so far vs mapping it out. There is a voice that talks over your music, informing you of progress, which really helps.
I love it!
