    Love the Product! But it HATES the Earth!

    Non-serviceable with non-replaceable batteries.
    I still don't understand why the same pimply-faced geeks who rant about global warming (yet do nothing about it except preach) are willing to let Apple skate on this issue!
    Mighty Applons, make your devices end-user serviceable and they will be perfect!

    Why cant we replace the battery?

    • Written by from Newport News

    I have had this unit for about 11 months and the sensor stopped working. I thought I would be able to just replace the battery and keep going. But, now I have to buy a whole new sensor!!!! It would be so easy just to design the unit to be able to replace the battery. Apple and Nike just want to keep that big buck coming in and care less about the consumer. $19 ????? How about $5 for the replacement? Sounds better than 3/4 the cost of a whole kit!

    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.

    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!

    If it lasts

    • Written by from Tyrone

    I have bought two of these, one lasted 13 months the other lasted 3 months! My ipod is telling me the sensor battery is low and it needs replaced, I find it very hard to believe that Nike can't come up with a better sensor battery replacement process

    No good for serious runners

    • Written by from Spring

    The display shows kilometers though the voice and computer are correct in miles. Many of us are waiting for a software fix.

    Just ran 6 mi with a friend same start same finish time but my ipod show 17 seconds shorter than hers. Timing it right now with my own watch and after 26 minutes it is 6 seconds slower!

    After calibrating twice , the distance measured is always around 6% off of actual.

    If you don't care about acurate pace or distance this will work just fine for you!

    Dead after 19.48 hours

    • Written by from College Park

    I cannot recommend this product. I ran for just 20 hours in the last 10 months and the battery is empty now. That is 1$ for one hour of running (if you count the sensor without receiver) ... really not worth the money. And to build products with non-changeable/rechargeable batteries is not environmental at all (and this company claims to be).

    The only good thing ... for the 20 hours it worked fine.

    Good, but you have to buy one every year

    • Written by from Bellingham

    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.

    Nice Idea.... but hit & miss quality

    • Written by from READING

    Great when it works... I have had a sensor last as much as 450 hours and as little as 8 hours before needing replacing, some switch into sleep - some don't....

    Like the 3G nano, could have done with a little longer in development, methinks...

    Works great.

    • Written by from Greencastle

    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.

    Needed this a month ago...

    • Written by from Richfield

    This is a great product, but a little advertising would have been nice. A month ago I needed a sensor and had to buy the entire kit. I would have much rather bought just the sensor. This should have been out since the kits started selling.
