This wireless sensor works with your iPod nano*, iPod touch (2nd generation or later), iPhone 3GS or later, to track your workouts. Insert it into the built-in pocket beneath the insole of your Nike+ shoe and pair it with your existing Nike + iPod receiver attached to your iPod nano.
iPod touch (2nd generation or later), iPhone 3GS or later, include Nike+ support built in. So you can get all the benefits of the Nike + iPod Sport Kit without the extra receiver.
This sensor is also perfect as a replacement for a sensor that has been lost or has exhausted its battery. Or it's great if you want to have a sensor for a second pair of Nike+ shoes.
Please note: This package includes only the Nike + iPod wireless sensor. If you also need the wireless receiver for iPod nano, purchase the complete Nike + iPod Sport Kit.

Ratings & Reviews
I bought the new (at the time) second generation Nano back in Oct. 06 and bought the Nike+ kit the same day. I've ran over 270 day I bought the new (at the time) second generation Nano back in Oct. 06 and bought the Nike+ kit the same day. I've ran over 270 days this year and all of them have been with the Nike+.
I can't believe all the reviews talking about how bad the battery life is. Not only that but they mention following the instructions on how to maximize said battery life. In a year I've not done one thing to my sensor except put it in two newer pairs of shoes. I never take it out. I never turn it off. It's in my shoes through -5º days, it's in there in 95º days. It's been through rain, sleet, snow and not once have I even thought about removing it to dry out.
Finally a year later it's time for a new one. For about a week I knew I was running faster/farther than the data showed. Sure enough today I received a message on the Nano stating my sensor battery was low and needed replacement. Not bad.
I think I can pony up for a new sensor yearly. Especially since I've found you only need to buy the sensor and not the whole kit. …

Good, but you have to buy one every year
My wife and I have really liked using the Nike + Ipod system for the last year or so. We both like how it keeps info about each of My wife and I have really liked using the Nike + Ipod system for the last year or so. We both like how it keeps info about each of our runs and I know I definitely run more after buying it. However, be aware that you'll need to buy a new sensor every year. We bought ours at the same time last year, and this year, within a few days, both of ours had ran out of juice and needed replacing - $40 + shipping for two of them. Still worth it, but it would be nice if future versions had a way of replacing the battery. …

Save your money
Save your money and get a gps watch instead. All that this sensor monitors is a pace count. It doesn't track cadence, acceleration 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. …

Nice Concept but has bugs!
I really liked the sensor, but, as others have indicated, it keeps pausing mid-workout. It's so frustrating. It pauses for no re 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. …
