    Still going strong after 700 miles

    • Written by from Beaverton

    I have been using the Nike+ system for a year this April and couldn't be more pleased. As long as you read the directions carefully you should not have any issues. I have run over 700 miles with one sensor. My shoes have been water logged, muddy, and close to frozen but the sensor keeps going strong.

    Works great, and is super motivating!

    • Written by from Nanaimo

    I've had it for a month now, it works well straight out the box, but even better when calibrated. Turning the sensor to sleep mode is not necessary unless you want to use your shoes for things other than running. Also you can get a strap so that you don't have to have Nike Shoes. If you want to run and stay motivated, get this for your iPod.

    Ipod sensor reactivation

    • Written by from Brownsburg

    I love the product but it is not easy to reactivate a sensor. I tried 3 different sensors until my original one started working. Apple when you review this product find a way that the owner can tell if the sensor is on or off. Find an easier way to activate the sensor also. I must have walked 2 miles without knowing if it was on or off. The apple support people were super and encouraged me to write a review.

    Great Runner's helper!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Bought it with a new pair of Nike's. I am running about 20-25 miles a week and have been using it since late November 09. It's very accurate and now that I am in my 200 miles still works great. I switch it on when I am getting ready to run and it's recognized quickly by my iPod mini and switch it off after my runs. My wife has it too and it works great with her iPhone 3GS. Syncs up wonderfully to the NIke site and gives you a lot of great information. Just make sure you are switching it on and off as well as removing the transmitter from your iPod to not drain the battery. It's really easy!

    I love this product! Just some advice though...

    • Written by from APO

    I would read the instruction book in detail to learn how to work all the functions. Also, it says it has over 1000 hours of active time, but this is not just when you run. The sensor is on by default, which makes 1000 hours about a month and a half if you never turn the sensor off. You can do this by holding down the button on the sensor for 3 seconds. If you turned it off, and try to do a workout, it will eventually say it cannot find a sensor, and it flashes no sensor in the top left corner. Hope this helps!

    I would still buy this and it is totally worth the price!!!

    Works Great

    • Written by from Spanaway

    The sensor works great. It was very easy to connect to my ipod and is incredibly accurate. My only complaint is that there is no way to tell if the sensor is on or off short of trying to connect to it from your ipod.

    I must have a dud

    • Written by from Sydney

    I think it's a great little gadget. However, I've used it only six times and now the receiver can not detect the sensor. The only thing I can figure it that the battery is dead. I'm not very impressed on having to buy another.

    Loved 5 runs, then dead, unreplacable battery.

    • Written by from Buffalo

    I was so excited to use this. And it worked beautifully for my first 5 runs. Then, no synch between my iphone and the sensor despite repeated tinkering. I never got the low battery warning either. You might be thinking then that the battery may not be dead. Me, too, but there is no troubleshooting guide to suggest anything else. So, I'm assuming its the battery. I was planning to come online and buy another one for $19, until I saw how many negative reviews there were. I'm less concerned about the $19 than I am about the likelihood that it will just be a series of $19 charges, as the device doesn't seem very reliable. Moreover, tossing these things in a landfill doesn't make me feel good either - how hard would it be to have a device with a replacable - or even rechargable - battery. For the masters of innovation - and I do believe that, as I write this review from my macbook pro - Apple just sometimes takes such shortcuts, and then of course clams up about it rather than being responsive. Apple, are you out there? Read the reviews and make a change. Until then, I'll have to go back to using PowerPoint to track my runs and goals.

    Loved it 'till I had to replace it.

    • Written by from Bristol

    I bought the Nike+ ensemble and enjoyed it while it lasted. When the sensor died I thought it would be a fairly inexpensive thing to replace. 19.00 is way too much. My opinion is spend the money on a GPS device.

    Simply doesn't work.

    • Written by

    I used it for two 1 (one) mile runs, and now it is completely unresponsive. The iPod tells me over and over to keep walking around to activate sensor to no avail.

    Pish of rubbish

    • Written by from Norman

    OK. I order it from amazon.com Dec 2009. I used it several times, but total running hours less than 2 hours. Whenever I don't use it, I take it out from my shoes and put it in a box. Now it's Jan 2009, I put it into my shoes choose work out from my Ipod Touch. My Ipod just tell me walk around to activate my sensor. I took the sensor out of my shoes and try to activate it by my hand(push the button) It still didn't work.

    Don't buy it cause it doesn't work

    • Written by from Woodbridge

    I have used two different Ipod Touches with three sensors. I recently purchase a new sensor after the previous worked fairly well for three months and then stopped working. The new sensors works for 6 minutes and then the sensor and the Ipod stop communicating. It requires shutting the iPod off, setting up the sensor as a new sensor and then it stops working in 6 minutes again. The old sensor only logged about 40% of the distance and ran or walked.
    This system is a failure.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Memphis

    I've had my sensor for a year now, and have logged about 500 miles so far. I used it initially with my ipod nano, and now with my iphone and it works great. I haven't had any problems with battery life and haven't had to replace it yet. My only problem was during my last half marathon- I couldn't get it to link with the phone and I did the whole race without it. It's very accurate and consistent for me (5'4") but isn't accurate at all for my husband (6'4").

    Okay for runners that want to keep track of miles

    • Written by from Princeton

    I am not a runner but do run sometimes just to be outdoors or utilize the treadmill when the weather is bad. My battery has lasted a long time not sure how many miles I have on this but has been in use for around 8 months. The only downfall is it does not take into acct other types of activities such as biking or other exercise equipment machines.. I know some gyms have compatible equipment but I would guess there are more that do not have this equipment than those that do... For me it was sort of a motivator to run and kind of fun to keep track on line just wish it would do more than just for running and walking....

    Battery life questionable

    • Written by from Centerport

    I love the product, its perfect for keeping track of all my data as I train for my first marathon. However, my sensor only lasted for 110 miles and on my last run nothing was recorded. I guess I will have to buy three more now in case this happens again, as I will certainly be putting in a lot more miles over the next several months.

    Short battery life

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I'm not a runner, just a walker and sporadic at best. This sensor didn't last 50 miles. I love the technology but the battery life needs to be better, or there should be an actual 'off' button on the sensor. Obviously putting it to 'sleep' didn't do much to save the battery.

    Don't know what I would do without it!

    • Written by from Cornwall

    I love this product! I've tracked all my runs for the past two years. It is a life saver for training. I travel a lot and I can always get my runs in without having to plan out distances wherever I am. Its great to see progress too!
    I've had two sensors now and will probably need a new one soon, so they could improve the battery life or make a unit with replaceable batteries for convenience and enviro reasons. Also, I find its good to recalibrate it once and a while. Seems to lose accuracy after a while. But hey, it helps me tremendously so I'm not complaining!

    Good product but battery super limited

    • Written by from Bountiful

    They say that the battery is supposed to last 1000 active hours, but that must be under some crazy unrealistic conditions. I was always very careful about making sure I put mine to sleep when not in use and still had to replace the sensor after only a few months. But I will keep replacing it because I like it. They should make the sensor cheaper! But i guess they would not make as much money.....
