    Save your money

    • Written by from Howards Grove

    Save your money and get a gps watch instead. All that this sensor monitors is a pace count. It doesn't track cadence, acceleration, etc. If you plan on running at the same pace all of the time, this may be for you, but if you vary your pace and distance regularly, this sensor is useless. I've been training for a race and have been varying from fast sprints to slower, longer runs, and the speeds are always wrong. Five miles one day might be four or six depending on your pace. Just save your money and get a gps watch instead.

    So far so bad

    • Written by from Maplewood

    I bought this last night and it synced real easily. Then I went to run and my iPhone 4 will read it every now and then. All the sudden it pauses my workout. I hate it! I'm going to give it another shot tomorrow and see what happens.

    Almost Useless

    • Written by from Pembroke Pines

    Even with constant calibration after every run, the Nike+ is incapable of providing an accurate distance. I've confirmed the distance I run with several websites, and a calibrated sensor I use on my bike. The distances between the website and the bike sensor are the same. The Nike + sensor was a waste of money. I strongly recommend NOT buying one.

    It is a cool idea but I do not recommend. After trying all the many different tips and tricks I could find in the manual and on the Internet I still could not get the sensor to connect to my iPhone. I purchased the sensor as I thought it would be fun and motivating but after the frustration of trying to get it to work I decided I would prefer to just go for a run - minus the headache.

    Garbage! Won't work with iPhone 4S

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This will not work with an iPhone 4S. I took it to the mac geniuses and 3 of them couldn't get it to work. We tried everything in the book including several sensors. Many people are having the same problem online. I wouldn't suggest buying it. You can get the Nike+ app for free. Better app and gives you more info. So glad I spent $100 on Nike shoes when this garbage sensor does nothing.

    New sensor doesn't link up

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I've used this product for a few years now but have noticed a decline in the quality of the sensor in recently (I've gone through 4 sensors). I just bought a brand new sensor to go in my Nike running shoes and have only managed to get the sensor to activate 3 or 4 times since (have done at least 20 runs during that time). It keeps saying 'walk around to activate sensor' and never actually links. I've tried to find troubleshooting for this problem on the Apple and Nike + running site without much luck. I'm wondering if it's the battery that ran out while at the store..very frustrating at this was a total waste of money!

    Must Read Don't Buy This Item

    • Written by from Corby

    I bought this item at a apple store and not many of the people could give me any information on the item. I wanted to start running to keep fit but you have to buy shoes to fit the devices which are not that cheap. They tried to out do them self with a single button to turn the device on and off but it has no way of saying if it is on or off and this is a problem because the battery cannot be replaced or recharged but it says it has 'over 1000' hours' of battery life. And if you do not know whether the device is on or not it could run out of battery quickly. I had high expectations on this item but this item failed to even get close to them. If you have money to burn then it would be a good product but I have no way to return this it therefore I regret this purchase.

    ipod touch and nike+

    • Written by from Eagle

    I have yet to get my runs to upload to the website and no ability to sync. Contacted the help desk but they just indicated that problems had been reported and they were working on it. Probably will go back to Garmin and excel spreadsheet. Tried to use the Nike + Running but I can run the same route and it will be off a mile from the day before. Same response from support desk.... problems have been reported. One star only to get it to post.

    DON'T BUY!!! Sucker to buy Nike+Ipod

    • Written by from Fresno

    The sensor link is horrible. There is no way to know that the sensor actually works. Nano and 3GS ask to walk around and I walk around. If It asked me to jump up and down and pat my belly and top of my head, I would probably do that too to see if the sensor activates. I was a sucker to buy this garbage. Nike makes a special hole to place the sensor and makes you pay for it. If it weren't for the fact that Nike shoe, I would never had thought of buying the ipod sensor. Save your money.

    iPod sensor

    • Written by from annandale

    I am on my 3rd and the last two I was unable to use because as soon as I went to use it, I got the message that the battery was low! So $60 later, I have a record 2 workouts because that was all I was able to use! I really want to believe in this product and will probably buy another one. I bought 2 at Footlocker and 1 at the Nike store. I know that the sensor is "on" when you buy it. Perhaps the sensor should come in the "off" position so as to preserve the 1000 hours. I am thinking that they sit for so long and then when customers buy them the sensor is off!!

    I love this concept and it really motivated me to keep up my walking program. Help me Apple or...

    Can I get my money back!

    Used it three times and then put it to sleep as directed, because I was not going to run for three days. It never worked again.

    Not worth it

    • Written by from somerville

    As someone else pointed out, I'm rarely motivated to write reviews.. but when things are this bad, you feel the need to warn other people. This product is great in concept, but the sensor is inaccurate (even when you calibrate it) and the battery life is pathetic.

    I have had THREE in the last year and they have each only lasted a month or two. I thought it was me.. but apparently it's just a poorly made product. For $20 (plus $10 for the holster), you would expect this to last at least 18 months.. not 2.

    NIke - if you're reading this, you should be embarrassed at the poor quality of this product. Step it up and stop wasting our money.

    sensor continues failure with iOS4

    • Written by from Cupertino

    Worked fine for months., But with IOS4 upgrade stopped syncing/ working reliably. So I bought new one figuring the battery died. Nope. Nike 's app is just brain dead with iOS4 upgrades. Check the NIke website or apple Discussions on recent Nike+ product. There's so much bad mouth that Nike's locked out the discussions.

    Sensor is not recognized

    • Written by from PHOENIX

    I had the same problem what I have seen others post...used few times, had it for over a year and suddenly the sensor does not work. It was frustrating and it took me a while to figure out why it is not working. Battery is dead. Why battery can not be replaced? This is not practical. Another scheme to have you spend few more bucks every year.

    I am never motivated to write reviews, but this product is so bad I have to warn others. I bought several sensors, and went back and forth to the apple store multiple times with my two small children. Finally I met with a "genius" at the apple store, believing it could not be multiple sensors - it had to be something I was doing wrong. Well, same old deal - product still does not work. I guess I will be making my final drive back to hopefully get a refund.
