Will the Nike+ Polar Heart Rate Monitor work with the iPhone4, if I plug the Nike+Sport Kit device into the iPhone4?
All the online discussions indicate that the Nike+ Polar Heart Rate Monitor is incompatible with the iPhone4. All Nike literature says that the Nike+ Polar Heart Rate Monitor will work with the Nike+Sport Kit. The Nike+Sport Kit is advertised as compatible with the iPhone 4 (although it says the dongle is not needed).
If I use the Nike+ Sport Kit dongle in my iPhone4, would that make my phone compatible with the Nike+ Polar Heart Rate Monitor?

No, but if you have the dongle you can use the ADIDAS micoach app and it will read heart rate and pace.

No it won't work.
When you attempt to plug your sports kit receiver (dongle) on the phones a pop-up alert message comes up telling you that you already have a receiver built into your iPhone.

If you have an Iphone 4 you can use:
1.- Nike+ GPS
2.- Nike + iPod
Nike+ GPS don´t need a sensor because this program use your GPS to calculate all information.
If you use Nike + iPod, you need a sensor... but if you wanna Polar Hear Rate Monitor, just work with Ipod 5th Generation (or SportBand) because in iPhone don´t appear that function. In settings just appear how to link to a sensor or remote.
"Linking a Nike + iPod Compatible Remote or Heart Rate Monitor
To link to a Nike+ compatible heart rate monitor (sold separately):
m iPod nano (5th generation only): Connect your Nike + iPod receiver to your iPod nano,
choose Nike + iPod > Settings > Heart Rate Monitor > Link, then follow the onscreen
I hope this answer your question.
