Nike+ iPod Sport Kit

The most important fitness equipment I make sure to bring with me for every workout is my Nike+ iPod Sport Kit. Whenever I’m running, it’s always useful to track my run so I know exactly how far I’ve ran and how quick I was able to complete my run.

So how does it work exactly?

Grab your iPod nano, iPod touch, or iPhone 3GS, a pair of Nike+ shoes, and the Nike + iPod Sport Kit or Sensor. Put the sensor in your Nike+ shoe — there’s a built-in pocket specifically designed for it under the insole. Then connect the receiver to your iPod nano. iPod touch and iPhone 3GS include built-in support for Nike + iPod, so no receiver is necessary. The sensor tracks your run, then sends the data to your iPod.

With any Nike+ running shoes and a Nike+ iPod Sport Kit or Sensor, your iPod nano, iPod touch, or iPhone 3GS sync up to motivate you mile after mile. Your shoes and your iPod can team up and take on your entire run. You get to see the minutes tick by and watch the miles unfold.

What else can it do?

As you run, your iPod or iPhone 3GS tells you your time, distance, pace, and calories burned. And it gives you feedback at the halfway point and in the final lead-up to your goal. You can also see the details of your workout on your iPod or iPhone 3GS.

When your run is finished, connect your iPod nano, iPod touch, or iPhone 3GS to your Mac or PC, and your workout data automatically syncs to nikeplus.com. Go there and see all your runs and share motivation with runners across the world. Know of friends that run? You can connect with them on nikeplus.com to motivate each other.

Another cool feature is that you can even connect your iPod to a Nike+ iPod compatible cardio machine at the gym and track your progress from one workout to the next.

So what’s our opinion?

My Nike+ iPod Sport Kit definitely helps with motivation as I run my 5ks so I definitely recommend this product! The amount of information that it can track along with everything you can do with it definitely makes it a great buy and an affordable one at that!
