The Nike + iPod Sports Kit

Why carry both your iPod and a pedometer?
The Nike + iPod Sport Kit includes a pedometer that fits inside and communicates wirelessly with your iPod nano – very clever, eh? Note: this system is meant to be used for walking or running workouts rather than total daily steps.The pedometer provides audible and visual readouts of your time (appear on your iPod), speed, and distance while listening to music or podcast workouts.
The Good is there’s no doubt that it is one of the best workout companions ever to have been made. What could be better than listening to music and at the same time receiving information (by voice feedback – optional) such as the total distance travelled and the number of calories burnt? Furthermore, the special are not a requirement.
The Bad is that one of the main disadvantages is the fact that this is basically a “disposable product”, therefore the non-rechargeable, non-replaceable battery will eventually run out after approximately 1000 active hours of regular use (assuming you turn off the transmitter after each workout session).
The + iPod Sport Kit includes free access to the Nikeplus.com website. Simply plug your iPod nano into your computer and it will open up the web site, as simple as that. Having registered and signed into your account, you can now view graphs and totals of all your workouts. You can also set goals, challenge your friends to virtual races and goals, and buy workout music via iTunes.It's written by kakak on 4.16.
