    Good for iPod users but waste of money for iPhone4&3GS and iPod touch users

    • Written by from Normal

    Works great at the beginning but accuracy seems to change as batteries die. With the Nike+ GPS app out there its a lot more accurate with or with out GPS and is a one time buy no replacement needed.

    Love this product

    • Written by from Tyler

    I use it with my iphone nike app. I really wanted to start running and actually being able to hear in my headphones while listening to music how fast/far I was going pushed me to keep going. This is made for the Nike free shoes and they are super comfy. Thanks!

    Effective

    • Written by from New York

    If you looking for a gadget to keep track of your workouts without having to carry extra stuff this is it. It small and compact and it works with your ipod. I love this gadget weather your are running or walking it will keep track of your workout.

    Great, but doesn't last very long

    • Written by from Toronto

    I recently just started running and have heard this is a great thing to have. It works nicely with the iPod and it tells you the distance you've covered without having to Google map your route. But I've only used it twice and it's already died. Not sure if I want to get another one if it's going to happen again.

    Make sure the sensor is linked

    • Written by from LONG BEACH

    if the sensor all of a sudden stops working, it may not be a dead battery. Just happened to me. I thought the battery died. But actually, it must have been my iphone 3gs as I started having problems with the volume and shutdown buttons while I was jogging and had the Nike app open. So to resolve the phone issues, I went to the apple store. Luckily I was able to get a new iphone (since it was still under warranty). then tried my nike+ again but the sensor wasn't working. I went to the settings on my iphone. scrolled down to the Nike setting. selected Sensor and even though it said "sensor is already linked" I hit the "link new" button. This solved the problem and I'm able to use my sensor again. Havent gone for a run yet so hopefully it isnt a weakening battery after all. Whatever issues I had with my iphone (don't wanna get into it), it must have somehow unlinked my sensor. glad i tried this before getting a new sensor. I got the sensor and started using it in June 2010 so it would have been very disappointing if the battery was already out since I only run about 1-2 times a week for about 40 minutes each time. Just try it!

    sensor continues failure with iOS4

    • Written by from Cupertino

    Worked fine for months., But with IOS4 upgrade stopped syncing/ working reliably. So I bought new one figuring the battery died. Nope. Nike 's app is just brain dead with iOS4 upgrades. Check the NIke website or apple Discussions on recent Nike+ product. There's so much bad mouth that Nike's locked out the discussions.

    Very Good!

    I just bought a pair of Nike LunarEclipse shoes, and the nike + works like a charm. Very happy that i don't need the pack, as I have a iPod touch.

    Sensor is not recognized

    • Written by from PHOENIX

    I had the same problem what I have seen others post...used few times, had it for over a year and suddenly the sensor does not work. It was frustrating and it took me a while to figure out why it is not working. Battery is dead. Why battery can not be replaced? This is not practical. Another scheme to have you spend few more bucks every year.

    Good product, but....

    • Written by from Bracknell

    I love the sensor and it seems to work. I find it really supports my running training.

    What I don't like is that I have now the Iphone with sensor, the latest Ipod Nano with a pedometer. Now I could finally get the Pulsar belt for heart rate monitoring. It would be so nice for a change to have all these functions within one Apple gadget. Also, my iphone does not play music on some of the speakers I have for my ipod. Have not tried the Nano yet. Chargers do not seem to be compatible amongst ipod gadgets either. PLEASE can you not unclutter my life and drawers, by making thins cross compatible?

    Phone Doesnt Recognize Sensor

    • Written by from Johannesburg

    I used the sensor once and it worked very well. The next time I tried using it my phone -iphone 3gs, couldnt pick up the sensor - it kept saying "walk around to activate the sensor". Does this mean the battery is dead? I have only used it once for a 30minute run...

    NOT WORTH IT!

    • Written by from albuquerque

    I am never motivated to write reviews, but this product is so bad I have to warn others. I bought several sensors, and went back and forth to the apple store multiple times with my two small children. Finally I met with a "genius" at the apple store, believing it could not be multiple sensors - it had to be something I was doing wrong. Well, same old deal - product still does not work. I guess I will be making my final drive back to hopefully get a refund.

    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.

    Awesome little thing

    • Written by from Jerome

    Just slip it in the shoe laces and run. Syncs with the iPod in four steps, at least it did for me. Very accurate on tracking my distance, and I love seeing the results. Other reviews say you have to buy a new one every year, which I wouldn't mind. This motivates me to run even more. So it'll help me to stay running when I'm not with my friend anymore. A little tip for everyone; run in the morning.

    Changes the Way I Run!

    • Written by from Elizabeth City

    I love the Nike+ sensor. I have used it in my new 6G Nano for 3 weeks now, and it is perfectly reliable. It has completely changed the way I run. The competitive aspect of using the Nike+ website, coupled with the fact that I am no longer chained to pre-defined running tracks, makes this product leave me with the drive to run one more mile, and the drive to hit the street more often.

    I love the ability to hit my sleep/wake button and here instant vocal feedback about the distance I've run, the pace I'm on, the total time I've run, and how close to I am to my set goal.

    I have also left it in the shoe without using the sleep button or doing anything else special. It goes to sleep on its own, and it just works. Runners... seriously... do it.

    My favorite Running accessory

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    I have been running with the Nike + for over a year and I LOVE it! The most important thing to me is that it motivates me to run faster and longer. There are a lot of goal setting tools online that I have used some and plan to use more in the future. I have found that sometimes it tells me how far I've gone and sometimes it is silent- I have yet to figure out why. Generally I have found that it works the way I expect it to.

    Awful product

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    It never recorded a precise run. It always marked 5 miles by the time I was barely over 4 miles in a perfectly defined trail. The last time it marked 1.7 miles in the 5 mile trail! The nike application is ages away from mediocre.

    Bought in June, used 7, seven times! in a 3 month period, and then ran out of battery.

    I know it has a warranty but, Who these days keeps a ticket of a 20 dls purchase?

    Totally disappointed.

    Poor battery life

    • Written by from LAS VEGAS

    Enjoyed using it for the 6 months it lasted. Run 5 x per week but didn't always use it, so it's not worth buying another unless they can improve the battery life. Can't believe I have to buy a new one if I want to keep using it.

    It took me a couple of sensors before I got one that worked. I like being able to track my mileage and time per km, as well as personal bests. Makes me want to run more often!

    nike sensor

    • Written by from Rocksprings

    It works well with time and distance. However, it is defective on the calorie. Today, I was tired and sweating after walking for more than 18 minutes, but it said that I burned 0 calorie. It doesn't work well at all on an elliptical. In brief, it works OK. The price is a little expensive.
