    love the product but can't to replace the sensor is way to much money.

    • Written by from Trinity

    I've had no problems with the product but I must complain about a replacement sensor costing nineteen dollars when you the entire thing cost thrity dollars. It almost makes more sense to but everything again. This price point should be lowered.

    Love the Nike + iPod system

    • Written by from University Place

    Love this system. It really helps motivate me to workout. I have the iPod Touch so I only need the sensor. I have had my sensor for a year and it just died today - not too bad it lasted longer then I would have thought. I will buy another one and keep on going!

    Great Way to Track My Runs

    • Written by from Arlington

    I've customized all my running habits onto one easy program. It's great to track my good and bad days. Although a heart rate monitor attachment would make it better, I still get what I need from this equipment.
    Good job Nike & Apple.

    Excellent

    • Written by from San Diego

    I really enjoy the way this product works. I recently found out that if you are currently listening to a podcast or audio book, another option becomes available when you go to the Nike Workout called: "Now Playing." I had assumed you could only listen to playlists/music when working out, so I was happy to learn about this option.

    A great product that works seamlessly and is very user friendly!

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Good product

    I really like this product and it really can help keep you running. I had Nike + Shoes but then i bought my Mizunos, Just make a little slit in the toung of your shoe and slide it in and your good to go.

    Great Runner's helper!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Bought it with a new pair of Nike's. I am running about 20-25 miles a week and have been using it since late November 09. It's very accurate and now that I am in my 200 miles still works great. I switch it on when I am getting ready to run and it's recognized quickly by my iPod mini and switch it off after my runs. My wife has it too and it works great with her iPhone 3GS. Syncs up wonderfully to the NIke site and gives you a lot of great information. Just make sure you are switching it on and off as well as removing the transmitter from your iPod to not drain the battery. It's really easy!

    I love this product! Just some advice though...

    • Written by from APO

    I would read the instruction book in detail to learn how to work all the functions. Also, it says it has over 1000 hours of active time, but this is not just when you run. The sensor is on by default, which makes 1000 hours about a month and a half if you never turn the sensor off. You can do this by holding down the button on the sensor for 3 seconds. If you turned it off, and try to do a workout, it will eventually say it cannot find a sensor, and it flashes no sensor in the top left corner. Hope this helps!

    I would still buy this and it is totally worth the price!!!

    6 months & still going

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    I've been using my sensor for 6 months now & have put 330 miles on it & it is JUST now starting to act funny. Every time I'm done running a voice comes on & says congratulations you just finished 500 more kilometers...even though I haven't. Overall - AMAZING product! I hope I don't have problems with my replacement....

    Great product.

    • Written by from Lake Jackson

    I know lots of people have had battery problems, but I've had mine for over a year and it has worked great. I don't turn off the sensor between runs, but I also do not use my running shoes unless I'm running. (Walking in my case) The cool factor and the Nike web site has encouraged me on and changed the way I workout. Thanks!!

    Sensor died after 2 1/2 months!

    • Written by from Needham

    I love the Nike + iPod system; it's awesome. Unfortunately, my sensor battery died after just 2.5 months. I'm buying a new one, but not happy about it. If it dies again after a short period, I think I'll have to say goodbye to the whole system. C'mon Nike! Get a better sensor!

    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...

    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!

    Connectivity problems

    • Written by from Greensboro

    I have been using the Nike + iPod Sensor for a month along with my Iphone 3GS. The most important problem I have is connectivity. Before I start a workout, the application allegedly detects the sensor. But once I start the workout the applications fails to measure my speed or distance. Apparently it looses connectivity. This happened to me already several times. An easy fix is to double check your sensor is working once you start running, but this is annoying as I use another application to train. Moreover, the nike webpage gives you very little info about the actual speed and pace during your workout.

    great addition to iPhone 3GS

    • Written by from East Wenatchee

    I bought my sensor and received it early this month (Jan. 2010) and have used it for six workouts, and I think it does a great job. I have not had any problems with syncing the device to my iPhone and I like the option to have spoken feedback whenever I pause my music or the workout. I do not own a pair of nike+ shoes so I also bought a pouch to strap to my laces, and the sensor works in the very cold, in snow, and when it's wet. I look forward to my workouts now because I know exactly how far I have traveled. Thanks apple and nike!

    Loved it 'till I had to replace it.

    • Written by from Bristol

    I bought the Nike+ ensemble and enjoyed it while it lasted. When the sensor died I thought it would be a fairly inexpensive thing to replace. 19.00 is way too much. My opinion is spend the money on a GPS device.

    Am disappointed

    • Written by from Dallas

    I thought my unit was the only defective one - turns out it wasn't and I am not going to spend another $20, plus buy another pair of the shoes.

    I'll wear my heart monitor and my pedometer (that was given to me free) and get the same results.

    Wish I had the original packaging still to send it back!
