I am on my third chip.  I run with it everytime I run, with or without music.  I LOVE the challenges. The new and improved Nike + website is great too!  I highly recommend the Nike+ system to any runner! 

What did you think of this review?

Whoooa, third chip?  What happened to the first two? :P  It just so happened that I got my iPhone and my Nike+ shoes in the same week without knowing this link between them.  After I realized that, I've been meaning to check this out.  I'd love to hear more about it!  Thanks for sharing, Colleen :)

If you like to run on the treadmill because it records your mileage for you, but you get very bored of running in the same place for a long period of time, the Nike+ is right for you!   What is it? The Nike Plus is a device that you place in your shoe (a compatible shoe), with a small insert you connect into your ipod that records the statistics for your workout while you run outdoors. It records workout time, calories burned, total mileage, and mile pace.   The Set-up: You record …

Nike+ sensor
So I have this issue where I love to workout, but only if I know exactly how many calories I'm burning and how far I'm going when I do it. For instance after the calorie/distance thing broke on my elliptical I completely stopped using it, although it is still a completely functional piece of exercise equipment.    The Nike+ shoes take care of my "need to know" as far as runnig in concerned. There is a tiny sensor in the shoes, and then another attachment I put on my iPod Nano. …

About this topic


The Nike+iPod Sports Kit is a device which measures and records the distance and pace of a walk or run. The Nike+iPod consists of a small accelerometer attached to or embedded in a shoe, which communicates with either the Nike+ Sportband, a receiver plugged into an iPod Nano, or directly with an iPod Touch 2nd Generation or iPhone 3GS. If using the iPod or the iPhone 3GS, iTunes software can be used to view the walk or run history.

The sensor and iPod kit was revealed on May 20, 2006. The kit is able to store information such as the elapsed time of the workout, the distance traveled, pace, or calories burned by the individual wearing the shoes, and display it on the screen or broadcast it through the headphones of an iPod

The sensor and Sportband kit was announced in April 2008. The kit allows users to store run information without the iPod Nano. The Sportband consists of two parts: a rubber holding strap which is worn around the wrist, and the receiver which resembles a USB key-disk. The receiver displays information comparable to that of the iPod kit on the built-in display. After a run, the receiver can be plugged straight into a USB port and the software will upload the run information automatically to the Nike+ website.

As of August 2008 "Nike+iPod for the Gym" launched, allowing users to record their cardio workouts directly to their iPods. No Sport kit or shoe sensor is required; all that is needed is a compatible iPod (3rd–4th generation iPod Nano ...
