    ipod touch and nike+

    • Written by from Eagle

    I have yet to get my runs to upload to the website and no ability to sync. Contacted the help desk but they just indicated that problems had been reported and they were working on it. Probably will go back to Garmin and excel spreadsheet. Tried to use the Nike + Running but I can run the same route and it will be off a mile from the day before. Same response from support desk.... problems have been reported. One star only to get it to post.

    Simply doesn't work.

    I used it for two 1 (one) mile runs, and now it is completely unresponsive. The iPod tells me over and over to keep walking around to activate sensor to no avail.

    Product great. Battery replacement not good.

    • Written by from Prairie Village

    I love this product to help keep track of my running. It has been a great motivator to keep my cardio training on track. I love setting goals on the website and beating them! The battery just died. It bad you have to pay $19 for another sensor. I guess Apple doesn't like to let you buy just replacement batteries (see the ipods!).

    1 use, 15 seconds

    • Written by

    After buying this product at the Nike Outlet Store, I realized it did not work with my new 80gB IPod, which was only 6 months old. So I ordered a refurbished Ipod Nano ($75) to use exclusively for running with this system. After waiting for the Nano to arrive, I finally got to try the Nike Run system- I registered my product and turned on the sensor to try it out. I shook it in my hand for 15 sec to simulate running, and to see how the thing worked, and got excited when it registered distance. But the screen said sensor battery low, which I thought was strange.
    I then turned it to sleep mode, because I had read reviews that stressed saving the battery power, plus I had that strange low battery warning. The next day I turned it on to go running and it was not recognized by my IPod, even after attempting to locate it and repressing the sleep button, in case it was still asleep.
    I tried it again the next day, and its officially dead. And the warranty is invalid, because I guess the outlet store had it for at least a year.

    All in all, $29.99 for the kit + $75 for the required Nano + 2 days of frustration = one dissatisfied customer. However, now that I bought all the stuff I'll probably end up dishing out the $20 for a replacement, even though it makes me furious to think of it. I just hope I don't get another dud sensor.

    Not Good

    • Written by from everett

    This gadget thing is not accurate at all I run a mile in about 9.30 and it keeps giving me inaccurate distances. I recently did a 5K and at the end of it all it said I had done 1.94K Even after calibration

    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.

    Great Product!

    • Written by from Hugo

    This device is great. I use the nano, so I usually buy the set but have purchased this individually when it has died. It is amazing. You must calibrate it for accuracy but if you know the distance of a short sprint or if you have a track you can calibrate on, it works great. Once it's calibrated it works great & gives you everything you need to know about your run. The website keeps track of it all and everything organized. Absolutely no complaints about this product!

    This product works great with my ipod touch (2nd gen.). I just bought the extra sensor since my ipod touch has a built in remote.

    Good Product

    • Written by from Jackson

    I have read a few of the other reviews and some I agree with and others I do not. Mainly some people complain about a short battery life. $20.00 a year is not a bad price for something each year. Think how much your power bill is a month. Second, some people say poor desgin but I think with some off brand extra stuff I have a good fit for mine.

    Love the nike+

    • Written by from Mahwah

    I got the nike+ for Christmas and I love it I can defiantly say I have ran farther and more since I have gotten the nike+. I think this is a great product. It is so easy to use you just plug the wireless receiver into your ipod and u are ready to run and at the end of your run you have how many miles you ran, how many calories burnt, what your pace was and your time. I am a nike+ costumer forever!!!!!!!

    This sensor has lasted me more than 200 miles of jogging for a year! To me, any battery/sensor that can keep on chugging for so long is awesome in my book! I love nike+ it has changed my life and how I approach my workouts.

    So far so bad

    • Written by from Maplewood

    I bought this last night and it synced real easily. Then I went to run and my iPhone 4 will read it every now and then. All the sudden it pauses my workout. I hate it! I'm going to give it another shot tomorrow and see what happens.

    Garbage! Won't work with iPhone 4S

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This will not work with an iPhone 4S. I took it to the mac geniuses and 3 of them couldn't get it to work. We tried everything in the book including several sensors. Many people are having the same problem online. I wouldn't suggest buying it. You can get the Nike+ app for free. Better app and gives you more info. So glad I spent $100 on Nike shoes when this garbage sensor does nothing.

    Awesome until it stopped working

    • Written by from Saint Helens

    I loved the Nike + iPod. I bought the Nike+ shoes. It was wonderful and then the device said the battery was low and stopped working. This was after about 200 miles. I went to a Nike store and bought a replacement sensor. It didn't work. I returned it for another sensor, it didn't work either. I bought my brother a Nike + iPod. His worked fine. I tried to use his with my sensor. It didn't work. I tried using his sensor with my unit. It didn't work.

    I finally broke down and bought a whole new unit. I hope I have better results with this unit. I am saving all my receipts.
