    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.....

    It's Okay

    • Written by from Cape Girardeau

    I bought this so I could lose weight and while it has helped me want to meet my goals I have set, the math it uses to calculate calories is messed up. You would think it would use time, distance and weight but it only uses steps. So I can run a mile or walk a mile and because when I run I take less steps it shows I burn less calories. I think they could fix this and make a version 2.0 but it when I talked to Nike they did not seem real interested.

    Glad to see Sensor for Sale!

    • Written by from Algonquin

    My battery finally died and I just needed the sensor.
    Glad to see you have it available! Thanks.
    Love this product. Can "race" my sister in England while I am in the states by using the Nike site. Keeps us motivated!

    Good but, c'mon apple you can do better

    • Written by from POMPANO BEACH

    My battery lasted through over 1 years use and almost 500 miles. Not bad, I guess, especially compared to other reviews I have read. But I expect more from Apple than the way some of these other customers were treated. I also do not like the fact that the entire device is disposable. I should be able to return this to the store and purchase another one in person. Apple could then recycle this product. This product should also be functional with the i-phone. I run with my i-phone, why should I have to carry my nano?

    DON'T BUY!!! Sucker to buy Nike+Ipod

    • Written by from Fresno

    The sensor link is horrible. There is no way to know that the sensor actually works. Nano and 3GS ask to walk around and I walk around. If It asked me to jump up and down and pat my belly and top of my head, I would probably do that too to see if the sensor activates. I was a sucker to buy this garbage. Nike makes a special hole to place the sensor and makes you pay for it. If it weren't for the fact that Nike shoe, I would never had thought of buying the ipod sensor. Save your money.

    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.

    A little frustrating...

    • Written by from Dana Point

    3 stars for sensor/5 stars for Nike+ system/kit!

    I can agree it is a little frustrating to have to replace the whole sensor - and not be able to easily find one when you walk into a Nike store or an Apple store...that is a little ridiculous. Mine died while I was in a competition for losing bodyfat so I wasn't as motivated to beat my past performances because I couldn't gauge my current performances without the sensor. I took time out of my schedule to go buy the replacement and couldn't find one...here I am several months later...

    Hopefully I won't have to recalibrate the new sensor either - that's a bit of a pain if you have to keep doing that...

    ****It would be helpful if the ON/OFF function on sensor was easier to use (I could never tell if it was on or off until after trying to walk with it).****

    On the PLUS side: the kit is a great motivating piece of equipment at a very reasonable price!

    stock sensors on the store shelves!

    • Written by from Grapevine

    I agree with others that this is a great product, although the sensor doesn't last long. I wear these sneakers exclusively for running and still only managed to eek out about a year and a half on the sensor before it died. I went to the store and they had no idea how to replace a dead battery in the thing and all they could offer was for me to buy another kit. I'm glad I didn't buy the kit just to get another sensor. These sensors need to be out on the shelves.

    What's Wrong With This Picture?

    • Written by from Beaverton

    I was given this product as a BD gift. I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread for tracking work outs. But that all ended after only 6 months of usage. It seems to me that the engineers for the battery life and those that design printer ink jet cartridges have to much in common. I suggest that someone go back to the drawing board and figure a redesign battery replacement for the end user.

    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.

    Registers incorrect pace while running

    • Written by from Coppell

    I run 3-4 times a week and I have been using Nike+ for well over a year now. I was very happy with my initial purchase. The sensor lasted just over an year, which in my assessment was fair. Then my problems started. I bought a new sensor and the receiver could not detect it at all. So I returned it to the store and they exchanged it for a new one. The new sensor worked fine for a few weeks and after that, it would only register the pace correctly when I am walking (+ or - 5%). It just does not work correctly when I am running. I use it with a second gen iPod in a Nike+ arm band. To test the problem, I took the iPod out and kept it in the cup holder of the treadmill while I ran. While I walked it registered the pace correctly. The moment I started to run the pace reading went haywire and fluctuated randomly between 0.0 min/mile and 29.30 min/mile (0.0 most of the time) while I was running at 10.00 min/mile.

    Now I am not sure if this is a problem with the battery or not. Probably not, because then it would not have registered the pace correctly even when I was walking. Right?

    If anyone has faced this issue and knows of a solution please respond.

    Not for Serious Runners...

    • Written by from South Lyon

    Even after careful calibration - this device is 3-5% off per mile. If you run 8+ miles at a time like I do - this level of accuracy is not acceptable. This might be fine for walkers and casual joggers - but this is not a serious training tool. Garmin 4Runner series is far superior. At $29 dollars, I guess it is a good value - but not for serious athletes.

    Sensor lasted 1 year

    • Written by from Chesterfield

    I like the product. I never turn mine off and I went through two pair of shoes but I only use them to run in. I think the key is to make sure you aren't using the shoes as "walk around" shoes or when you are not going to log a run. If you are you need to take the sensor out to save the battery life.

    not for serious runners.

    • Written by

    I'm sure this product is great for those people who only do a slow jog every once in a while, but for people like me who run more than 5 miles a day, this product is not worth the money.

    I recieved the nike+ system for christmas and was very excited to test it out. it worked great for about 3 weeks. once track season started, and i began training more vigorously, i began to notice the recorded distance and time of my runs was a bit off.

    finally, the battery completely died in the very beggining of february, after only about a month of using this product. i have yet to buy a replacement, and i'm still not sure whether the $20 is worth only a month of workouts.

    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!!

    Was given one used (my co worker's watch failed) he got the iPhone 3Gs, did not use it. I got the iPhone 3Gs and wanted it. They sat for 12 months or so, already used. I have put 215 Km on them (that's over 100 miles) still going. Love them.

    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.
