The Nike+ SportBand: Simple Run-Tracking on Your Wrist

Like the freedom of running without a media player? If so, the Nike+ SportBand could be your new favorite running partner. It tracks your time, distance, pace, and calories burned on an easy-to-read display, plus it links to Nikeplus.com, where you can join challenges, map your routes, and connect with friends--all without an iPod.

Nike+ SportBand--removing Nike+ link

How it Works

The Nike+ SportBand is easy to use. Just put it on your wrist, place the sensor under the sockliner of your left Nike+ ready shoe, and start running. The sensor measures your pace, distance, time elapsed, and calories burned. This information is transmitted wirelessly to the Nike+ SportBand, for real-time feedback while you train.

The SportBand is designed for runners, and is a one-size-fits-all solution, with a pre-curved polyurethane band for lightweight comfort. It's also water resistant, for running in the rain or giving it a quick rinsing off without worry.

Color Name: Black/Cool Grey/Silver
Pros:
- comfortable wrist band
- small and lightweight
- USB connector idea is pretty neat

Cons:
- display is very hard to read: no backlight, digits are small, watch face is oriented 90 degrees from viewing angle
- mileage tracking is grossly inaccurate (up to 30% off), even after calibration; appears to make the absurd assumption that you always run using the same length stride
- if you want the watch to display elapsed time once you push the start button without having to push any other buttons, you will not be able to see the distance run until your run is over
- cannot be used as a basic stopwatch because it must communicate with sensor on shoes
- does not display seconds for runs lasting over an hour
- recalibrated runs are not updated on web site to reflect actual distance
- web site is so slow as to be unusable
- clearly costs only a few dollars to manufacture = overpriced at $59
- by the time you discover all of these cons, you will have used the watch so that it cannot be returned

Color Name: Black/Varsity Maize
I was apprehensive about buying the SportBand after reading all the negative reviews, but in the end I went for it, figuring that the potential benefits of having a really useful and relatively inexpensive instrument outweighed the inconvenience of returning it should it prove to be a lemon or a dud. I've only had this for a day so I can't speak about its durability or longevity, but since I went through my own period of frustration in getting the watch to work, I thought I might share a few tips and save someone else a lot of hair pulling. After combing the interwebs to troubleshoot this thing, it's actually proven to be an amazing little device. What I really fault Nike for is not including and displaying this info in a conspicuous manner - say, in the instruction booklet or in the online FAQ, where people might actually see it and use it to solve the issue, rather than dreading the inevitable call to an ignoramus in customer service that will end up boosting your blood pressure and heart rate in all the wrong ways.

So anyways, if your watch won't link up to the sensor here's what you can try:

1. Wake up or restart the sensor. I understand many if not most of these units will be shipped with the sensor in sleep/standby mode. Push on the button once with a pen until it clicks to wake it up. To reset, hold the button for 3 seconds until it goes to sleep. Then push on the button again to wake it up.

2. Reset the watch. Push and hold both the top & side buttons for 10 seconds until the screen reads "Nike." You'll have to plug it into your computer and use the Nike+ software to re-input your settings for weight, time, etc.

3. Push and hold the SIDE button for 5 seconds. That makes the watch find the nearest sensor and link to it.

Color Name: Sonic Yellow/Imperial Purple Verified Purchase
I got this for my wife and it took a few times of calibration to get it to be fairly accurate. We went on a 4-mile run - I wore my Garmin Forerunner and she wore her NikePlus watch and as soon as we finished the run, we both stopped our watches. We used this to calibrate the watch and ever since then, her watch has been pretty accurate. I like Nike's software too. Easy to install, easy to find your way around but why can't I minimize the application window when the unit is plugged into my computer? How annoying! So if you're charging the unit, you'll see the Nike utility on your desktop the entire time with no way of getting rid of it until you disconnect the unit from the PC. Just a small gripe. I also bought her a shoe pouch for the foot pod since she wears ASICS. Seems to work fine.

Color Name: Black/Cool Grey/Silver Verified Purchase
I run about 40 miles a week and was looking for a less bulky item on my wrist than my 7 year old Garmin 201. I figured it would be nice to not worry about charging or leaving the Garmin turned on. I was hoping to simply walk out the front door and run without syncing with satellites. It was going to be back to low-tech running with the benefit of pretty sharp looking web site and details stats. The first two runs went fine but then I began to notice some real issues. You can't manually add runs with the Sportband. I know you can with the assistance of free app for the ipod but not the Sportband. Also you can calibrate runs but they don't update your stats they just prepare the device for the next run. As most runners, I like accurate stats not "kind of close" or completely missing runs. That was the final straw... when I ran a 14 miler and it didn't record. I also experienced the device simply stopping in the middle of a run and restarting near the end.

So needless to say I'm back to my old Garmin happy again. I just wish I would accidentally step on it so I could move up to a 305 or 405. :)

Color Name: Black/Cool Grey/Silver
Overall I am very happy with my sportband. The good:
- Consistent calorie and mileage tracking
- Can be calibrated once running and once walking, but you need to do this on a track or on a treadmill to be accurate.
- Foot sensor even when strapped on my laces was barely noticeable
- Long long long battery life
- Charge it my plugging into your computer. Charges very quickly (less than 30 min for full charge from dead)
- Easy to start and stop and pause a run
- One button push to see the time, mileage, speed and calorie count
- very sturdy wristband that is also adjustable
- Can be set to more than one foot pod. Each foot pod can be calibrated is my understanding
- Share you runs with friends on Nike+, and/or share on Facebook
- The software which syncs the sportband with the computer consistently works

The bad
- Even though calibrated, mine consistently shows slightly faster mileage than actual.
This is probably because I take smaller steps than other people, but I expected the calibration to take care of that, and
for it didn't.
- Will not work with some foot pod holders, or if the sensor is accidentally placed upside down
- Only keeps workouts for 7 days total
- Most of my gripes are with the website itself, which definitely needs work. This device is made
so that you can upload your results to Nike+. The site has some really great features, like the statistics,
and competitions, but there are some features that are lacking, and the site (to me) is fairly buggy, although
better in the last few months.
- Not waterproof
- Can only be charged to the computer, not the wall
- When you lose a sensor, basically you have to buy another sensor and do the calibration all over again.
- If you do not have Nike shoes, you have to buy a sensor holder. These are very cheap, but I guess that
I didn't know it ahead of time.
