Nike + Sports Band

Being an athlete makes me very picky about sport products.  Most athletic gear is expensive and is usually really great or really annoying.  As a runner I have found that I love or hate many of the products on the market for running.  One of the first pieces of equipment I wanted was something that measured the distance and pace of my runs.  I tried using mapping software and calculating out my routes beforehand so I would have an idea of my distance and pace, but that took the fun out of running.   The other options are GPS enabled devices which range from $150 to $400 or the Nike+ which is under $100.  I opted to go with the Nike +.  Several months later I use it religiously as a part of my running.  Nike has a great web site that logs my runs and pace.  Its nice to have a measure while I am out running.  The only downside is that I am not sure how accurate it is.  For example, if I start sprinting it  measures my pace as much slower (this is because my stride is longer so my foot hits the ground less).  For those that want to measure with out the high cost of GPS its a good alternative.  I would say if you are going to take running seriously, just buy GPS enabled gear since its much more accurate.  However, its a great buy for the price.

    This is so cool! I would love to have something like this. I always jog/run the exact same path because it it measured out but it would be great to change it up but still know how far you are going! Very useful!

    Right now, I think if I use a Nike + iPod it’ll be with my iPhone. I’d eventually like to use a full GPS for runs, but the cost seems too high right now.
