I have long wanted a quality GPS driven running watch but could never quite afford the $200 minimum pricetag. For Father's Day this year, my wife and kids came up with a pretty good alternative in the Nike Fit+ Sportband. At around $60.00, it is much more affordable than a GPS watch and is pretty darn good for the price. There are just a couple of points that anyone considering buying one should consider:

- You DO NOT HAVE TO PURCHASE NIKE SNEAKERS TO USE THE SPORTBAND. Nike would tell you otherwise but the sportband system works just as well with your favorite brand of running shoe. You must simply find a way to attach the sensor to the laces of your shoe. I initially used a folded over piece of duct tape holding it in place under my laces. I looked online and found numerous devices designed for this purpose specifically, ranging from $2 to about $10. I picked a latex case that attaches to my laces and holds the sensor in place. It works as well as the Sportband is expected to work. Thank goodness because I personally find Nike running shoes overly expensive and of poor quality.

-The Sportband is generally pretty accurate. It is surely accurate enough for everyday use. Even without doing calibration on the system, it is generally within 1/10 of a mile on my workday morning 5 milers. The only place I have found that it falters is when I try to include speed work into my routine. When I do my usual 8:10-8:20 miles the accuracy is as I mentioned, however, if I speed up my run to under 8 minute miles, it changes my gait and, clearly, this effects the accuracy of the unit. On such runs I have "lost" up to 1/4 mile on the same 5 mile route I run 4-5 days a week.

I bought the Nike+ SportBand to easily keep track of my running progress as I train for a half marathon. I do not use an ipod but bought Nike shoes that are Nike+ ready. I am entering my second week of use of the SportBand and I am very happy with it. It is very user friendly, comfortable and easily uploads run info to the Nike+ website. The sensor (included with my purchase) seems to be very accurate.

I don't run with music because I have this fear that I won't hear the car that is about to hit me, the man in the bushes that is about to mug me, or the meteor from the sky that is about to incinerate me. Accordingly, I don't use my iPod nano with the Nike + technology. Instead, I use this Sport Band. Mine is yellow. Because I think it shows up better. And because they didn't have red.

This review is for the Sport Band itself, not the Nike + system, which I have reviewed under the Nike + Sensor.

The Sport Band is a slim, comfortable item that has a built in USB device that will download your run data to the Nike + website once you've created an account. The device is easy to use... assuming you read the directions. They're not overly complicated, but you might need a refresher if you haven't used it in a week.

I've complained in other reviews that Nike tends to make wrist oriented things (like watches) too small.... they tend to fit the very fit, but for the beefier element of society - and that would be me - they can be uncomfortably snug. I was pleased that the Sport Band fit me, but I will tell you that if my wrist were 1/4 inch larger in circumfrance, you'd see a big ol frowny face here.

I've had no interface problems. The device unplugs and goes right into my laptop and the information has downloaded, without fail, each time.

A word of caution - if you are not moving fast enough (i.e. standing at a street corner waiting to cross) you eaither need to pause the device (so it isn't counting time while you aren't advancing) or it may do this for you.

I had heard about the Nike + system and thought it sounded really cool, so I went out and got the Sport Band. First off, the thing is still only about 90% accurate (as far as distance) even after you calibrate it. I saw the first time that it was incorrect with the distance, so I wiped the Sport band clean to factory settings and tried to recallibrate it again. Still, messed up. I also think it probably estimates mile times a little on the fast side too. It's good for a solid estimation, but I wouldn't take it 100% seriously. I think it's meant to be a marketing ploy "Wow, look how fast/far I am running! I'll buy Nike stuff cause it makes me more athletic!" Blah blah blah. So I guess what I am trying to say is that you can get the Sport band but be prepared to take out a calculator and figure out what 90% of your calories, distance, and time would be since it's that off target. With all that being said, this is probably the best you can get for your money as far as something that charts your run/distance/calories.

I have been using the sport band for about 18 months. A few glitches became apparent early on but were remedied by customer service. As time wore on, the unit dropped more and more runs, meaning that they were not transferred to the web site to be recorded. The main reason to use the sportband is as a fairly accurate record of runs and times but it also is a motivational tool to encourage you to run further, faster and more often. When the software loses 100s of miles over a six-month period, it sort of has the opposite effect. Many, many calls to customer service usually got the unit to work acceptably but never recovered lost runs. After I grew exasperated with reloading the software and rebooting my computer every other time I ran, I asked for a replacement as mine was obviously defective. I was told that I was past the one-year warranty and was out of luck. When I pointed out that the problems had begun well within the warranty period, they magnanimously offered me a $15 gift card to help buy a new one. That was several months ago and I am still waiting. I don't expect to ever see it. The website is great, the challenges are fun, the integration is fantastic. Losing the runs, including my first marathon, is intolerable. I am going to try one more time with this because I like the online community. If this one doesn't work very well, I will just get a nice GPS watch and stop buying Nike products.
