    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.

    Rubbish!

    • Written by from Saint Pete Beach

    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.

    flawed

    • Written by from Yorktown Heights

    Bought the sensor in May 2011. It mostly worked well. It became temporarily unresponsive in July. Somehow I made it work again, but yesterday it seems to have finally died. I only run 1-2 times per week. Not sure if the battery is the reason. According to the manual, one should have received a notification if the battery was getting weak.

    Awesome Product!!!

    • Written by from Austin

    First off don't be afraid with all the battery reviews. I have used/ran with this same sensor for 473 miles in a little over a year! So with some saying it lasted a month or 2?? I have no idea what they are doing wrong. It just really seems that the individuals putting bad reviews don't sound very tech savvy. -- Will you need to relink the sensor from time to time?? YES, if it's not performing to your standards (don't forget to recalibrate it).-- Will you lose data with switching phones?? NO. I've gone through a 3GS, iPhone 4 and now iPhone 4S and still tracking every single run I do. I absolutely love this product!!

    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.

    better than nike GPS

    • Written by from Kuala Lumpur

    As we all know, GPS eats battery.

    Bought the sensor at july and now its still working great.

    After 5 hour of usage i still have plenty of battery juice left

    Great but wasting...

    • Written by from Klongtoey

    This product was the great gadget for runner. But I feel disappoint after I knew that after 1000 hrs. usage time, I can't change the battery.

    Yes, you have to buy a new sensor after its battery run out.

    Great... when it works.

    • Written by from East Hills

    As I already own an iPod touch and Nike+ joggers, I decided to buy this despite the mixed reviews. And I don't regret my choice - it's rather cheap, and it's a great motivator. As I don't have a smartphone, a GPS app is not an option for me.

    However, the software needs a serious re-working. To listen to a specific album, you have to put it into a playlist (rather then being able to select it off the bat). But most frustratingly, occasionally runs don't sync, and the process to finding them is ridiculous, and in some cases doesn't even work. With two giant companies behind this, I don't see why they can't provide an update to simply make their product work as advertised. It is ridiculously infuriating to lose runs.

    For the most part, everything works great and I love it. But be warned that runs will likely (not just possibly - likely) not sync, and you will be pulling your hair out trying to fix it, then getting more frustrated when the fixes don't work for you.

    Good for iPod users but waste of money for iPhone4&3GS and iPod touch users

    • Written by from Normal

    Works great at the beginning but accuracy seems to change as batteries die. With the Nike+ GPS app out there its a lot more accurate with or with out GPS and is a one time buy no replacement needed.

    Love this product

    • Written by from Tyler

    I use it with my iphone nike app. I really wanted to start running and actually being able to hear in my headphones while listening to music how fast/far I was going pushed me to keep going. This is made for the Nike free shoes and they are super comfy. Thanks!

    Great, but doesn't last very long

    • Written by from Toronto

    I recently just started running and have heard this is a great thing to have. It works nicely with the iPod and it tells you the distance you've covered without having to Google map your route. But I've only used it twice and it's already died. Not sure if I want to get another one if it's going to happen again.

    Make sure the sensor is linked

    • Written by from LONG BEACH

    if the sensor all of a sudden stops working, it may not be a dead battery. Just happened to me. I thought the battery died. But actually, it must have been my iphone 3gs as I started having problems with the volume and shutdown buttons while I was jogging and had the Nike app open. So to resolve the phone issues, I went to the apple store. Luckily I was able to get a new iphone (since it was still under warranty). then tried my nike+ again but the sensor wasn't working. I went to the settings on my iphone. scrolled down to the Nike setting. selected Sensor and even though it said "sensor is already linked" I hit the "link new" button. This solved the problem and I'm able to use my sensor again. Havent gone for a run yet so hopefully it isnt a weakening battery after all. Whatever issues I had with my iphone (don't wanna get into it), it must have somehow unlinked my sensor. glad i tried this before getting a new sensor. I got the sensor and started using it in June 2010 so it would have been very disappointing if the battery was already out since I only run about 1-2 times a week for about 40 minutes each time. Just try it!

    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.

    Good Battery Duration

    • Written by from Brisbane

    Despite it is not possible to replace the battery, the standard one is a long duration battery. I have used it for almost 4 months and it is enough for me. You just have to put the sensor in sleep mode when you are not going to use it for long time (2 or more days for me) and the battery level will keep in a good level for long time.

    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.

    Good product, but....

    • Written by from Bracknell

    I love the sensor and it seems to work. I find it really supports my running training.

    What I don't like is that I have now the Iphone with sensor, the latest Ipod Nano with a pedometer. Now I could finally get the Pulsar belt for heart rate monitoring. It would be so nice for a change to have all these functions within one Apple gadget. Also, my iphone does not play music on some of the speakers I have for my ipod. Have not tried the Nano yet. Chargers do not seem to be compatible amongst ipod gadgets either. PLEASE can you not unclutter my life and drawers, by making thins cross compatible?

    Phone Doesnt Recognize Sensor

    • Written by from Johannesburg

    I used the sensor once and it worked very well. The next time I tried using it my phone -iphone 3gs, couldnt pick up the sensor - it kept saying "walk around to activate the sensor". Does this mean the battery is dead? I have only used it once for a 30minute run...
