    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.

    Didnt work at all

    • Written by from Sydney

    It worked for one run but then stopped. The calories burned didnt add up on the iphone and distance didnt add up as well. I went through 5 of these returning to apple each time. I thought it was the stock they had so I went to another place and didnt work, returned again and next one didnt work. Then I went to apple store to check the iphone, it was all ok. I used another ipod mini that it would work with, that didnt work. People on the Nike+ forums were adiment it worked but after going back and forth the only benefit of the device was that each time I went there to replace I got exercized along the way. If it doesnt work after a few times then just dont worry with it, download any of the free apps that will do similar.

    Awesome little thing

    • Written by from Jerome

    Just slip it in the shoe laces and run. Syncs with the iPod in four steps, at least it did for me. Very accurate on tracking my distance, and I love seeing the results. Other reviews say you have to buy a new one every year, which I wouldn't mind. This motivates me to run even more. So it'll help me to stay running when I'm not with my friend anymore. A little tip for everyone; run in the morning.

    Changes the Way I Run!

    • Written by from Elizabeth City

    I love the Nike+ sensor. I have used it in my new 6G Nano for 3 weeks now, and it is perfectly reliable. It has completely changed the way I run. The competitive aspect of using the Nike+ website, coupled with the fact that I am no longer chained to pre-defined running tracks, makes this product leave me with the drive to run one more mile, and the drive to hit the street more often.

    I love the ability to hit my sleep/wake button and here instant vocal feedback about the distance I've run, the pace I'm on, the total time I've run, and how close to I am to my set goal.

    I have also left it in the shoe without using the sleep button or doing anything else special. It goes to sleep on its own, and it just works. Runners... seriously... do it.

    My favorite Running accessory

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    I have been running with the Nike + for over a year and I LOVE it! The most important thing to me is that it motivates me to run faster and longer. There are a lot of goal setting tools online that I have used some and plan to use more in the future. I have found that sometimes it tells me how far I've gone and sometimes it is silent- I have yet to figure out why. Generally I have found that it works the way I expect it to.

    You have to have one!

    • Written by from LAKE OF THE FOREST

    works great! helps me keep going to the Gym and do some work outs! :) although you have to have a nike shoe that is compatible with the sensor, it's worth it! have an online account with nike, set a goal on burning calories, i totally love it! best invention ever! :)

    Awful product

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    It never recorded a precise run. It always marked 5 miles by the time I was barely over 4 miles in a perfectly defined trail. The last time it marked 1.7 miles in the 5 mile trail! The nike application is ages away from mediocre.

    Bought in June, used 7, seven times! in a 3 month period, and then ran out of battery.

    I know it has a warranty but, Who these days keeps a ticket of a 20 dls purchase?

    Totally disappointed.

    Poor battery life

    • Written by from LAS VEGAS

    Enjoyed using it for the 6 months it lasted. Run 5 x per week but didn't always use it, so it's not worth buying another unless they can improve the battery life. Can't believe I have to buy a new one if I want to keep using it.

    Fun Toy

    • Written by from Swift Current

    It took me a couple of sensors before I got one that worked. I like being able to track my mileage and time per km, as well as personal bests. Makes me want to run more often!

    nike sensor

    • Written by from Rocksprings

    It works well with time and distance. However, it is defective on the calorie. Today, I was tired and sweating after walking for more than 18 minutes, but it said that I burned 0 calorie. It doesn't work well at all on an elliptical. In brief, it works OK. The price is a little expensive.

    A waste of $20

    • Written by from chicago

    I really need what the Nike+ is SUPPOSED to do. Unfortunately, it is a useless piece of plastic destined for the landfill. I used mile markers on a local trail, turned around and re-walked the exact same route - the sensor registered 0.8 one way, 1.1 the other (yes, I had calibrated at exactly the same place previously). Then walked five more miles - it only recorded 1.7. Useless.

    Also, the Nike+ site doesn't let you correct the sensor's mistakes. The mapping part of the site only works on occasion, not reliably (other walking map sites are far easier, so it's not user error). Site support and instructions from Nike are sketchy and don't seem to have been updated in a long time.

    Not Reliable

    • Written by from Forest Grove

    The sensor is very unreliable. On several runs the sensor just stopped recording. Once the time recorded but the distance didn't. It's just not reliable for keeping a history of your running since you are not able to edit mistakes that the device makes.

    Connectivity problems

    • Written by from Greensboro

    I have been using the Nike + iPod Sensor for a month along with my Iphone 3GS. The most important problem I have is connectivity. Before I start a workout, the application allegedly detects the sensor. But once I start the workout the applications fails to measure my speed or distance. Apparently it looses connectivity. This happened to me already several times. An easy fix is to double check your sensor is working once you start running, but this is annoying as I use another application to train. Moreover, the nike webpage gives you very little info about the actual speed and pace during your workout.

    So much better then a watch!

    • Written by from Kansas City

    I really, really love this accessory. I've only logged 40 miles or so on mine so far, but it's made such a difference in my approach to running. I love the instant feedback, and it's tracking capabilities, and syncing it to Nike really helps me target my weak points in my run. Since upgrading to iOS 4 on my 3Gs, I've noticed that sometimes it can be buggy, but I find that if I simply restart the app it does fine. Seamless tracking and feedback from a reliable product. THANKS!!

    Nike Sensor

    • Written by from norfolk

    I have bought 2 of the sensors for the shoe and both times they didn't work right out of the package. Its kinda like a crapshoot whether or not they work. I think it is a great concept but they need to address this inefficiency in order to have confidence int he product. Please fix it 'cause I love to use it (when it works)

    Great Idea Poorly Executed

    • Written by from Ramseur

    I really wanted to love this thing the way that I love my macbook pro and my iphone but I can't. There are times when it is hit or miss and I constantly walk around in circles trying to calibrate it and nothing happens. Additionally the battery life on this thing is something that needs to be addressed. I can deal with buying a new one yearly but surely there has got to be a someway apple can put an LED on there to let you know the battery is dying or running low. I also don't like the on off button simply because I can't tell if the thing is on or off. Again, an LED light or an ON OFF switch would be more user friendly. That said, when you can get it to work it does it's job and does it pretty well. I just expect it to be more simple from the company that told me to THINK DIFFERENT.

    I would not recommend this product it is inaccurate at tracking the distance you run. I have calibrated the sensor but it seems to be off still. Last one i will buy.

    Great Product!

    • Written by from Hugo

    This device is great. I use the nano, so I usually buy the set but have purchased this individually when it has died. It is amazing. You must calibrate it for accuracy but if you know the distance of a short sprint or if you have a track you can calibrate on, it works great. Once it's calibrated it works great & gives you everything you need to know about your run. The website keeps track of it all and everything organized. Absolutely no complaints about this product!
