Anyone else use the little Nike+ sensor when running or jogging??
HAHAHA people still run?
Actually I used to sell them and the special shoes they work with at Finshline, what do you need to know?
Nothing, actually. They couldn't me simpler to use. I was hoping to add some friends from here over at the Nike site.
I just don't see how people can run with those in their heel and not feel it. Despite having callouses that seem to be an inch thick, my feet get tender easy. I almost always wear sandles, and they are Timberlands that are like 8 years old. No joke. About the only time I don't wear them is when there is snow on the ground. I haven't bought a new pair of shoes since I worked at Finshline. I used to have a pair of Nike 360's I LOVED until the bottom bubble got a hole in it. They have a life time warranty on the bottom, BUT then someone stole all my shoes. I had like $1,000 in shoes that I only wore with certain outfits...one pair was a nice pair of the old really cool white and silver Tailwinds. LOVED those shoes.
OMG, the ugly green pair are on eBay for $199!!!
I don't use the Nike shoes made for it. Nikes are toooo narrow for me. I have vury wide feet. I use Skechers Go Run and Go Run Bionics. I have this little thingamajig that holds the sensor at the laces area.
This isn't my shoe, but that's the little holder dealie.
I had a pair of Sketchers dress shoes I wore until the sole came off of them.
I always used to wear Keds. Then sneakers got all fancified and expensive.
what does it track? i have a garmin edge that i use for cycling and occasionally when running, that tracks the usual, heartrate, distance, time, mph or minute mile etc also has gps navigation. What does the sensor offer?
It tracks how much money a person has to waste.
my mrs does that quite effectively.
It does all the same things you've mentioned - heart rate and + calories burned. It's a very similar idea as a garmin bike computer, but it's for running. I use mine with my iPhone, which also serves as my music while I run, but the sensor also works with iPod Touch and iPod Nano. Since the sensor isn't something you have to hold or pocket and I would have my music with me anyway, it's one less then to have to hold when running or walking.
Don't know where to put something like that on my trail shoes:
