    works great

    • Written by from Windsor

    I have been using the sensor for over a year and it works great. I originally had it in my Nike shoe but when I got new shoes I didnt want to be limited to just the NIke Plus shoes. So I found online that if you just put a peice of velcro on the back of the sensor and put it under the laces in between the laces and the tongue of your shoe as close to your toes possibel (this is where your foot bends on the top) that it pretty accurate. That way you can easily move it from shoe to shoe.

    First sensor a dud

    • Written by from Calgary

    The first sensor I bought was dead and I didn't get a use out of it. The second sensor, I bought the least dustier one in the store nd made sure my iPhone 4 could connect to it before I even bought it.

    Works well, now

    I have just purchased my third sensor, the first 2 gave me approx 1500 miles each before they started to slow down. I have used them with my iPod nano, iPhone 3gs and 4s with only an occasional crash. I would have never run so much without it, combined with the NikeRunning it is so motivating :)

    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.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from Sorel-Tracy

    I am using the sensor during one year.It' an excellent product to keep motivated...I regret that my new ipod touch don't linkk with the polar strap to track the hearth activity. How Ipod nano does...I don't know if Ipod and polar goes to do something with that to give us that little bonus. Anyways...I use Adidas shoes with a cavity to insert the sensor. The running brand from Adidas comes with the cavity....before I used a pouch with belcro in a Sketchers shoes. That worked too. For this summer I upgrade my hardware..

    I hate this

    • Written by from harrisburg

    I have the Nike shoes with the sensor at the bottom of them but for some reason on the app it keeps telling me to walk around to activate it I don't know what to do or what I can do to fix the problem

    The product is great! It has about 2 months of battery max. if you use it for every day's exercise. Just make sure you get the right shoe. I got a pair that had the Nike Logo on the bottom, but Nike + iPod Sensor requires a pair of Nike shoes with a
    Nike+ logo on the bottom of the shoe.

    Great when it's working

    • Written by from Auckland

    Mine only lasted less than 6 months... only 200 kms on it and it died (or I think it did). Great for running, but can be frustrating when it doesn't link and you don't really know if it's the batteries or not. Apple should really put an on/off button on this. I do miss running with it so will just have to buy another one...

    Great for motivation!

    • Written by from Lancaster

    I have had the Nike + system for years. I can tell you that the first few weeks of getting everything to work right was a bit of a hassle. I don't understand why people are not getting the appropriate battery life out of the sensor. I run about 12 miles a week and my sensors (I'm on my 4th one) last at least 8 months or more. Ignore the comments about inaccuracies in distance. It's not perfect 100% of the time, but it's about 90% accurate. The last I checked, that was pretty decent. You do have to take the time to use the product right and calibrate the sensors.

    Far more accurate than I anticipated

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    At first I thought this sensor would be rendered obsolete with the introduction of Nike+ GPS iPhone app. It turned out this sensor was far more accurate on measuring running distance compared with the app using GPS tracking. Thanks to this little sensor I didn't overestimate my pace when I was training hard for one upcoming race.

    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!

    it works

    • Written by from West Vancouver

    Please be aware that if you don't know how to work with this sensor, it doen't mean that it doesn't work.

    I bought one of it and after I calibrate it, it works very well. but before calibration I was so mad, cos I ran like 1 km but it says 800 m. then I learned I should calibrate the device.

    In other hand, your iphone must run normally. some of you have hardware or software problem with your iphone. so it's better to verify everything in your iphone before judge this sensor.

    I highly recommend Nike+ipod sensor.

    Good device!(:

    • Written by from houston

    its a very good device, although I'm not very sure if its very accurate, but when doing distance and time it gets you motivated, specially when it keeps telling you how many calories you have burned! its works with the iPod 3rd generation and the forth one just fine. the battery life has given no problem at all, and i've had it almost a year!

    To connect to your iPod u gotta be having it in your shoe and walking around when the voice tells you to do so in the nike app.

    Great WHEN it works

    • Written by from Yountville

    This is great WHEN it works. It fails to connect to my iPhone 4 (iOS 5.0.1) 50% of the time. It's become a joke with those I run with because I spend so much time "walking around" to get it to connect. Turning off the iPhone and then back on, sometimes solves the synch issue.

    Also, when a call comes in, even if I keep running or walking while talking, it goes into automatic pause mode!

    Definitely one of the more unimpressive products I've bought through Apple.

    • Written by from Greenville

    This product is pretty neat when it works. But I've had massive headaches getting the chip to work; getting the website login to work; getting runs to sync. I still can't get it working. I would still recommend the product, but just recognize that you're probably committing to spend time to get it to work as advertised. I hope mine might eventually work as advertised in the future.
