    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!

    It just works!

    • Written by from Pontiac

    This product works great with my ipod touch (2nd gen.). I just bought the extra sensor since my ipod touch has a built in remote.

    I'm no hardcore runner, but worked really well.

    • Written by from SPANISH FORK

    I figured I'd like to try out this little gadget with my iPhone. Now, I'm no hardcore runner, and for the most part don't really have a desire to run more than a mile at a time, but this device worked really well while I was testing it out. Since I don't have Nike+ shoes, I carved a hole in my old, but in good condition Asics. The sensor fit snuggly in my homebrew "plus shoes" and the accuracy was within the 10% threshold everyone has been saying, but that was before calibration. It should be noted that this device is great for really anyone - those who enjoy running every day, or those who like to take the dog on a brisk walk, like myself. My only complaint is the fact that many feel turned off by the fact that it is designed to work primarily with Nike+ shoes. Running a high price-tag, those shoes can make this simple trying out of a nifty gadget a expense that turns off many who want to try this. Also, with attaching it to the back of your shoe, under the laces, or even inside the tongue, accuracy is reduced. The only way to get guarantied quality recording is to buy a Nike+ pair of shoes, or cut a hole in your existing running shoes - which is not for the faint of heart. Overall, I give this product a 5 on the grounds that it does what it is supposed to do under the conditions that it is supposed to function in.

    Didn't Work

    • Written by from Salisbury

    The sensor could not connect to the receiver no matter how hard i tried and after extensive research online this problem occurred with many thousands of people online. I wouldn't recommend this because im out 30 bucks but im trying to save you the hassle.

    Accuracy

    • Written by from RATHMINES

    I have found the sensor to be inaccurate especially when running up and down hills. It is fun though and keeps me motivated. Its inaccuracy is fine as long as it tells you that you are going faster than you really are and not the other way round.

    Great except for the battery

    • Written by from Lexington

    I love the technology and having it posted to facebook motivates one to keep going. The only bad thing is the battery isn't replaceable. Apple likes to be "green" but making a product that you have to throw away and buy a new one when the battery dies isn't at all "green". Furthermore, when buying new, not all batteries are the same. Some last a year. Some don't. Perhaps some are on the shelf longer and get moved around to activate their battery? No idea, but all sensors are NOT equal in their life span. Apple REALLY NEEDS TO USE A REPLACEABLE BATTERY!

    Awesome, But Register It!!

    • Written by from Toronto

    Obviously, when it's working, it rules. Everyone who runs with Nike+ will tell you the same thing: it makes fun runs more fun and training - for speed, distance or both - way easier.

    ONE THING: make sure you register it as soon as you buy it. It says it has 1000 hours of juice but mine ran out of batteries long before that. It has a year-long warranty and most of the time if the battery isn't up to snuff, you'll know before then. If you register, Apple is amazing about giving you a new one. If you don't register? You're definitely in trouble.

    Got it not to long ago and I've fallen in love with it!
    It's the first thing I've ever bought that has actually helped to improve my motivation to go workout! The powersong function is great and I love how my stats are read out to me!

    I totally fell in love with it :)

    • Written by from Wardenburg

    I bought this sensor a few days ago and I just love it. I can listen to my music, while my Ipod and my sensor keeps track of my running.

    That means, that I don't have to pay attention to my watch anymore, because I just select the 30 minutes workout and my Ipod tells me, when I have to turn around.

    This is a great product ... and works seamlessly with my iPod touch 3rd generation. Great tool to keep your exercise on track. I did have some problems syncing data to Nikeplus.com, but it's all good now.

    Terrible Transferability

    • Written by from Marietta

    This is a wonderful product until you try to upload your workout stats to your computer. Most of the time the moment that the Nike+ sync transmitter is disconnected from your iPod, all information is lost. If this could be rectified it would be stellar.

    Highly recommend this

    • Written by from Billings

    Honestly, I am quite puzzled to see so many negative reviews. I absolutely love this product. I am on my first replacement sensor and have been using the Nike + system for 3 1/2 years. My best advice for those who complain about inaccuracy is to make sure to "accurately" calibrate the sensor. For best results, go around a track. I originally began running to lose weight and now I am training for a marathon. This has been a great tool for me to utilize the data and train accordingly. It's amazing to see where I started and how far I have come. Also, I have had maybe 2 instances where I have lost my workout data. Make sure you have enough power to complete your workout or your data will be lost. Also make sure your computer is completely charged prior to sending your workout to Nike +. Other than my own stupidity and user errors, this is a lean, mean, fighting machine.

    love the product but can't to replace the sensor is way to much money.

    • Written by from Trinity

    I've had no problems with the product but I must complain about a replacement sensor costing nineteen dollars when you the entire thing cost thrity dollars. It almost makes more sense to but everything again. This price point should be lowered.

    I called and asked and was told you can, but you can't use it with the newer model. So I wasted money shipping it, now I have to ship it back.

    Great concept, Very poor implementation

    • Written by from LUTANA

    Lovely idea from the hardware through to nike+ site but on a whole, my experience has been extremely poor. From not being able to sync my sensor, to incorrect run distances, to sensor dropping out halfway through runs with no alert, to nike+ site losing run data and a host of other minor bugs I'm far from impressed with this half baked product.
