Has some flaws, but gets the job done First word of advice – do not buy this watch on Amazon.com until the product is available for the MSRP of $199.99 that it is currently selling for on the manufacturer website.Initial SetupThe packaging for this watch is compact and easy to open – very similar to how Apple packages their nanos and related products. The box contained the watch, a foot pod, cord, and very very brief instructions. The instructions basically tell you to plug the watch into your computer and download the user guide (and then this is repeated in 15 different languages). The edge of the watchband serves as a USB port so you literally just plug the watch right into the computer. This port has a plastic hinge which I’m already afraid will break, but so far so good. Once plugged you download some software and either set up a nikeplus account or login using your existing nikeplus account. While your watch is charging you can customize your settings giving you a display that most interests…

Nike Plus for Marathon Training I’ve run 6 marathons so far (a little over 1 per year), and always love to have new technology to play with during training. I bought the Nike Sportwatch shortly after it came out. I was not impressed. It really liked a lot of critical features, and the website was constantly having issue.Multiple months and 600+ mileson it later, I’m happy to say that I really enjoy it. Nike has been incredible about this launch. Every couple of months they’ve continuously added more and more new features. The website is still slow, but they are launching a new one in ealy 2012. The new features on this watch put it among the best out there.New features:- Walk/Run timer (interval timer as well)- Avg, Pace- Improved Mapping- Set time on the device (no computer needed)- Incredibly fast satellite connection (even in the city)- Auto calibration of foot pod- Faster upload speeds to add your runs- Integration with Facebook…

Track Your Runs: A Nike+ SportWatch GPS Powered by TomTom Review I was familiar with using Nike+ GPS on my iPhone to track distance and pace while taking our dogs on long walks. Then I signed up with Team In Training to compete in my first half marathon. I trained with a large group of runners with varying experience levels who were split between using nothing, a wrist trainer, or a smart phone. I considered purchasing the , but my coach advised against spending the money. At the time it was probably good advice, but now I want something more sophisticated than the Nike+ GPS app.The stylish Nike+ SportWatch GPS, made in China, can be worn as a fashionable watch. When used for tracking runs, the SportWatch utilizes GPS satellites used by TomTom to map and track your run while auto-calibrating the shoe pod sensor. When the SportWatch isn’t linked to the TomTom GPS satellites, the shoe pod sensor will track your run but may not be as accurate…
