    great addition to iPhone 3GS

    • Written by from East Wenatchee

    I bought my sensor and received it early this month (Jan. 2010) and have used it for six workouts, and I think it does a great job. I have not had any problems with syncing the device to my iPhone and I like the option to have spoken feedback whenever I pause my music or the workout. I do not own a pair of nike+ shoes so I also bought a pouch to strap to my laces, and the sensor works in the very cold, in snow, and when it's wet. I look forward to my workouts now because I know exactly how far I have traveled. Thanks apple and nike!

    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.

    Am disappointed

    • Written by from Dallas

    I thought my unit was the only defective one - turns out it wasn't and I am not going to spend another $20, plus buy another pair of the shoes.

    I'll wear my heart monitor and my pedometer (that was given to me free) and get the same results.

    Wish I had the original packaging still to send it back!

    Im on my 4th sensor in 1 year.

    • Written by from Mount Vernon

    The first sensor I got lasted about 6 months,
    second one a few weeks , I finally got good about turning it off completely when not running, the third sensor broke after a couple months, it didnt even give the low battery signal. Im about to get my 4th - havent given up yet.

    10 runs

    • Written by from East Aurora

    I only got ten runs out of my sensor! That's not cool! I have to buy a new one for 20 bucks when I bought the whole kit before for twenty one! I am not really happy. I like the shoe and the whole system but twenty bucks every couple of runs!?!?!
    That's silly. I think I am done with the Nike + as well!

    Love it!

    • Written by from WILLIAMSON

    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!

    Battery life is horrible

    I bought it last fall. I had 11 runs and the battery died. Simply unacceptable!

    Poor battery life

    • Written by from Orem

    I was pretty excited when I purchased the Nike + iPod Receiver and Sensor from a local shoe store. I would only use shoes with the sensor for running, so the sensor didn't get much other use. The low battery icon came on while I was running my third 5k. I am pretty bummed I have to fork out another $20 for a new sensor, only a month after the initial purchase.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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").

    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.

    One walk and it is dead. ZERO stars

    • Written by from Marietta

    I could not recommend this product to anyone. I took one walk with the sensor and liked it. I took the sensor out of my shoe to work out on the elliptical during the 90 degree + heat. Put it back in my shoe when going for a walk/run outside and it was already DEAD. I had turned it off (at least I think I did because it has no way to tell if it is off or on) and now it is useless unless I shell out another $20 for the same sensor that needs some re-design before it is worth buying a new one. And it will not allow you to rate it with ZERO stars!

    Only 3 months on battery life

    • Written by from Hoover

    I've loved using the product, but it's dead after only 3 months. I sure wish I had the guy's luck who wrote about it lasting for an entire year, b/c I've only gotten 3 months out of it!

    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.

    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.

    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.
