    Save your money

    • Written by from Howards Grove

    Save your money and get a gps watch instead. All that this sensor monitors is a pace count. It doesn't track cadence, acceleration, etc. If you plan on running at the same pace all of the time, this may be for you, but if you vary your pace and distance regularly, this sensor is useless. I've been training for a race and have been varying from fast sprints to slower, longer runs, and the speeds are always wrong. Five miles one day might be four or six depending on your pace. Just save your money and get a gps watch instead.

    So far so bad

    • Written by from Maplewood

    I bought this last night and it synced real easily. Then I went to run and my iPhone 4 will read it every now and then. All the sudden it pauses my workout. I hate it! I'm going to give it another shot tomorrow and see what happens.

    Nice Concept but has bugs!

    • Written by from Livingston

    I really liked the sensor, but, as others have indicated, it keeps pausing mid-workout. It's so frustrating. It pauses for no reason and, when you try to resume workout, it asks to "walk around to activate sensor", but it never activates. This has happened numerous times now, and I've only had the sensor for two weeks. Plus, it keeps coming out of my shoe. This morning, it fell out somewhere along the way and you know...I don't feel bad at all.

    Almost Useless

    • Written by from Pembroke Pines

    Even with constant calibration after every run, the Nike+ is incapable of providing an accurate distance. I've confirmed the distance I run with several websites, and a calibrated sensor I use on my bike. The distances between the website and the bike sensor are the same. The Nike + sensor was a waste of money. I strongly recommend NOT buying one.

    It is a cool idea but I do not recommend. After trying all the many different tips and tricks I could find in the manual and on the Internet I still could not get the sensor to connect to my iPhone. I purchased the sensor as I thought it would be fun and motivating but after the frustration of trying to get it to work I decided I would prefer to just go for a run - minus the headache.

    Not Good

    • Written by from everett

    This gadget thing is not accurate at all I run a mile in about 9.30 and it keeps giving me inaccurate distances. I recently did a 5K and at the end of it all it said I had done 1.94K Even after calibration

    Garbage! Won't work with iPhone 4S

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This will not work with an iPhone 4S. I took it to the mac geniuses and 3 of them couldn't get it to work. We tried everything in the book including several sensors. Many people are having the same problem online. I wouldn't suggest buying it. You can get the Nike+ app for free. Better app and gives you more info. So glad I spent $100 on Nike shoes when this garbage sensor does nothing.

    New sensor doesn't link up

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I've used this product for a few years now but have noticed a decline in the quality of the sensor in recently (I've gone through 4 sensors). I just bought a brand new sensor to go in my Nike running shoes and have only managed to get the sensor to activate 3 or 4 times since (have done at least 20 runs during that time). It keeps saying 'walk around to activate sensor' and never actually links. I've tried to find troubleshooting for this problem on the Apple and Nike + running site without much luck. I'm wondering if it's the battery that ran out while at the store..very frustrating at this was a total waste of money!

    Linking Nike Sensor to iPhone

    • Written by from Calgary

    I spent several hours trying to get my brand new sensor to link to my iPhone. I kept getting the message to "walk around to activate the sensor". Finally I found a trouble shooting page on Nike Plus website with information that helped me solve the problem. USING THE TIP OF A PEN, PUSH THE SMALL BUTTON ON THE BACK OF THE SENSOR SEVERAL TIMES TO WAKE THE SENSOR UP. When the small button on the back of the sensor is PUSHED and HELD , it puts the sensor to sleep. When I performed this action, the sensor linked with my iPhone right away and seems to be working perfectly. I don't know why it was so hard to find this information on the website. So many people seem to be having this problem...

    Must Read Don't Buy This Item

    • Written by from Corby

    I bought this item at a apple store and not many of the people could give me any information on the item. I wanted to start running to keep fit but you have to buy shoes to fit the devices which are not that cheap. They tried to out do them self with a single button to turn the device on and off but it has no way of saying if it is on or off and this is a problem because the battery cannot be replaced or recharged but it says it has 'over 1000' hours' of battery life. And if you do not know whether the device is on or not it could run out of battery quickly. I had high expectations on this item but this item failed to even get close to them. If you have money to burn then it would be a good product but I have no way to return this it therefore I regret this purchase.

    ipod touch and nike+

    • Written by from Eagle

    I have yet to get my runs to upload to the website and no ability to sync. Contacted the help desk but they just indicated that problems had been reported and they were working on it. Probably will go back to Garmin and excel spreadsheet. Tried to use the Nike + Running but I can run the same route and it will be off a mile from the day before. Same response from support desk.... problems have been reported. One star only to get it to post.

    Reading innacurately

    • Written by from seaside

    I do not need motivation to run or workout. I feel the IPod Sensor is very inaccurate. On my first calibration attempt i walked a mile, and the sensor read .13 miles. the most i could calibrate it at was .35 so i did the best i could. I then ran a mile at an average pace, and it said I ran less than a half a mile. I calibrated it to .75 which was the most it would let me at the time. Since then i have been able to calibrate it to the distance i run. But i have to calibrate it is always anywhere from .25 to a mile and 1.5 miles off. Even if I run the exact same rout over again. I will give it a couple hundred miles, but if it does not start calibrating somewhat accurately, I will probably just launch it into the ocean with a sling shot.

    Love to use it!

    • Written by from Johor Bahru

    I bought a couple of this item and love to use them installed in our shoes, mine and my wife's.

    In such hot weather like Singapore, it is usually reluctant to spare time to go out for jogging. But after bought this, I love to do it now.

    It's great product able to be found out in the market as well as iPhone and Macbook !

    Third day and final chance to make it work before return it to Apple Store, work itself out of my shoes and gotten ran over by a car half way in to my run.

    can't be bettered

    • Written by from dublin

    Yes, the nike website is not great, although its improved recently. But that's simply irrelevant to the simplicity of this product which works perfectly, always.
    And for the battery issue, my first one has just died, 3.5 years and 5000 kms after first using it. Superb.
