90% of the problems with this watch are from poorly educated product users who don't take the time to understand how it works. These ARE 90% accurate out of the box and I just ran a half marathon with 96.8% accuracy. (Watch said 13.52 as apposed to 13.1 miles). These are NOT 100% accurate, but for 59 dollars they are a steal compared to the $200-$400 dollar gps units from garmin. These are an excellent value. They can be recalibrated as many times as you need. Treadmills are not accurate so you can not compare to treadmill distance. You must compare to an actual track.

Now for the bad. My fiance and myself both have the sportbands. She is now on her 3rd while I'm still on my first. Together we have logged over 1,000 miles and I don't know if it was a fluke or what. I have no problems with their durability while my fiance may feel otherwise. However, on each account she has been able to return the product for a replacement at no cost.

The website is a little slow, but has not been so slow as for me to really count it as a con. They have sent out emails and promotional material saying how they are working on the website to greatly improve it and add features.

One thing not mentioned in the reviews is how great the website is. It keeps track of details of every run you ever ran. Allows you to challenge friends, play "tag", and join challenges. It is also very informative for the novice runner.

On a side note, I currently run in Saucony shoes, and the little pockets work great when not running in Nike's.

I purchased this watch about two years ago and I loved using it. After calibration, the watch was very accurate and it was a great addition to my training. Nike recommends that you wear the watch with the face on the inside of your wrist so it is easy to check while running. I tried this and it was more convenient. However, this was a HUGE MISTAKE! The USB part of the watch is held on by a single snap, and a single flick of the wrist can cause the watch to come loose and fly off. This happened to me three times. The last time, it flew off somewhere on a trail and I was unable to find it. I contacted Nike and they told me they would not do anything, but recommended the $170 Nike SportWatch with GPS.

I'm upset about this huge design flaw that doomed this awesome watch. Although it is a LOT cheaper than the other watches, it's probably worth the extra security. I'm out $60 and lost 3 weeks of training data. Overall, I'm disappointed in this watch.

I liked this watch at first. It read my distance, I could easily link it to my nike+ sensor and upload it to the nike+ website. Well a year later and it just stopped working. Maybe that's why it was only $60.

I like this watch a lot. It has its flaws, but for the price, its pretty great. Originally I used my phone to track distances with one of the many available apps, but I don't like carrying my phone around and it also drains my battery pretty badly. This is a pretty great option for those of us who don't want to spend 150+ for a GPS watch.

The good parts:
It tracks mileage pretty accurately AFTER calibration. I ran 2.5 miles on a track the first night I had this watch to calibrate it. The initial reading (before going in to calibrate) had me at 2.93 miles. Clearly it was pretty far off. However, the next weekend I ran an organized 5k race and wore the watch. It tracked me at 3.13 miles, which is probably pretty spot on when you figure in a little bit weaving on the race course.

Its cheap. Like I said, if you want a GPS enabled watch, you'll be spending AT LEAST 150 bucks, probably far more if you go for one of the more advanced Garmin models. They're great watches, I'm just not a place where I can afford that.

The Nike+ website is awesome. All of your data is easily imported to the Nike+ site and you can see your entire run in detail. Its awesome, I get detailed feedback and it keeps a history of my runs for no extra charge.

The bad:
There's no backlight. I assume this was done to converse battery life (which I can't attest to due to not running more than 5 or so miles with it), but it sucks for night runners. If you don't run in a relatively well lit area, you'll be doing a fair amount of squinting.

The face orientation is kind of awkward. The watch is very slim, which looks nice, but also puts the face at a perpendicular angle to the average person. It makes it much harder to see what your current distance or time is while running. You can't just do a quick glance.

All in all, I think its worth the price. However, if you want to spend more, there are better options out there.

My wife has tried two of these sport bands from Nike. They don't work. The site is always down and their facebook page is FULL of complaints from others with he same problem. Great idea, lousy execution.
