Nike + iPod Sports Kit


Nike and Apple has come out with a gadget and software which gives athletes another excuse to run. The Sport Kit2 allows your Nike+ shoe to talk to your iPod nano. The sensor uses a sensitive accelerometer to measure your activity, then wirelessly transfers this data to the receiver on your iPod nano.



What do you need?: Get in gear.

A pair of Nike+ shoes, an iPod nano, and the Nike + iPod Sport Kit (see photo).

How it interacts?:Rock ’n’ run.

With a sensor in your shoe and a receiver on your iPod nano, your run takes on a whole new dimension. See the minutes tick by. Watch the miles unfold. Hear real-time feedback. All to your favorite music — including the one song that always gets you through the home stretch.

Review your run and interact with your trainer:Stay in sync.

Sync up after you cool down. Just as seamlessly as it syncs your music, photos, and calendars, iPod nano also syncs your run. Simply connect iPod nano to your Mac or PC, and your workout data syncs to both iTunes and nikeplus.com, where you can see your runs, set goals, and discuss with your trainer or coach. You could also utilise a running site by Nike.

Here's how the Sports Kit2 is advantages for our workout:-

1.Connect
Any mere pedometer can show you stats while you run. But thanks to the Nike + iPod sensor and receiver, iPod nano also transfers your workout data to the Internet as soon as you sync. Connect your iPod, and iTunes takes over, automatically syncing all your run data and sending it to nikeplus.com.

2.Compare
Remember each run. Analyze your performance. Break your last record. Stay in tune with your goals. Nikeplus.com keeps stats on every step. Check your speed, distance, and calories burned — by run, by week, or by month — all from a graphical interface as intuitive as it is stunning.

3.Compete
Nikeplus.com keeps you connected with runners from every corner of the web. And that’s where the real race begins. Use nikeplus.com to challenge anyone, anywhere to a virtual race. Run on your own time, on your home turf, then log on to nikeplus.com to retrieve your results. Users have cloked more than 20,000,000km globally and is increasing every second.

Disadvantages:
1. You will need a pair of Nike shoes and an iPod before you start.

What's the price? US$29 for the kit; (RM138 at Nike, One Utama)

You guys should checkout the shoes that came out from

Nike with Ipod applications. Nike and Apple coming

together is a perfect combination and if this can

motivate a healthier lifestyle than more power to them.
