"How are You Supposed to Run With a Touchscreen?"1.0 starson by rynojp
Pros: Beautiful screen, iOS
Cons: touchscreen hard to use while working out, no longer a good option for nike+ users, requires the user to slow pace and look at screen to use, what happened to video?
Summary: I have owned 3 nanos primarily for use while running and to use nike+. The 6th gen is a disaster. The touchscreen is impossible to use while running. It requires way too much attention and is a complete distraction. The on-screen controls are so small that you have to slow your pace to hit them accurately and you have to actually look at the screen to use it. I bought the 6th gen specifically to use while running and to use with the Polaris nike+ heart rate monitor (the nike+ heart rate monitor can only be used with gen 5 & 6 nanos) I plan to give this 6th gen to my wife and go to Best Buy to see if they still have any 5th gens in stock.
