"Great Product, Great Motivator"5.0 starson by ecks618
Pros: Small attachment so no that much difference of size, good information, power song is awesome
Cons: Must have all 3 to use, some sneakers not as comfortable as others
Summary: I was always into the Ipod Video instead of the nano for many reasons but when I saw this coming out I thought it would be pretty useful to get the nano for this since I am lazy and getting some kind of motivation or reason to run would be nice. I picked one, I was one of the first people to get this along with the sneakers at Finishline. At first it took time to get the two pieces to recognize each other but then after the initial time it worked flawlessly. My first run was short just to try it out and it was great, I mean this is one of those things that is just amazing.
I immediately went out and bought my girlfriend one and we went to a park close by and ran about 2 miles together and came home to connect the ipods to the computer and update to nikeplus.com. This feature was even more amazing, it automatically updates your progress(if you want it to) and displays it very very nicely. It shows overall runs per day, then you can click on and one run and it gives you a full rundown of your whole routine, speed, calories, etc. You can also have challeges(I currently have one with my girlfriend and my brother, first person to run 50 miles) or set Goals for yourself for a certain time period.
Overall this is a great product, the only downside being is that you need the nano, the right sneakers and the sports kit, so minimum $280+tax for mens and women have some sneakers at around $85. I would highly suggest this to anyone who already runs, or someone that needs that extra boost to get you running.Updated
I had to go and change my sneakers today, my feet were killing me when I woke up. I think its just the sneakers and my foot not going well( I have a high arch, yes its a pain in the ass) These are the ones I had: http://www.footlocker.com/catalog/productdetail.cfm?TID=5555-46140622162146220793250-0&module=search&action=getpage&supercat=home&model_nbr=71155&sku=14024081&size=
I picked up the new ones today( http://www.footlocker.com/catalog/productdetail.cfm?TID=5555-46140622162146220793250-0&module=search&action=getpage&supercat=home&model_nbr=70832&sku=14324011&size= ) and they are alot more comfortable and was able to run 2 miles and they felt extremely light. Anyways I still think this product is great and highly recommend it to anyone.
And to all those people without an Ipod Nano, i guess your out of luck, but complaining about it isnt going to do anything. I got a nano because I gave the Video to my younger brother and the nano is just easy to have in the pocket since I already carry my whole house with me.
