Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was hesitant about spending money on a new pair of running shoes just so that I could use my Nike+ with my ipod. So when my husband bought me a pair of Nike+ I really wanted to like them. Unfortunately they just weren't as comfortable as my regular running shoes. After trying a few different pairs I gave up. I saw an ad for a shoe pouch for the sensor that looked about the same size as the shoe pouch that I already had, so I tried it. It worked but the accuracy was way off. The pouch was so big that the sensor bounced around too much and only 9 out of the 10 miles that I ran were measured. Oddly enough my husband had the same trouble when he was running with his Nike+ shoes. I thought maybe the sensor was bad, but once I got my Shoe Pouch and took it to the track I found that it was far more accurate than the bigger pouch and even the shoes. I don't know why the shoes wouldn't work, but that's just one person's experience!

Have you found a way to make this product more accurate? I have had a terrible time with the accuracy even with the lace lid. I will be running a steady 7 MPH and have it read anywhere from a 8:06 mile to a 18:56 mile. I have my iPod clipped to my waistband. Wondering if that was creating problems. Tried running with iPod in my hand without any better luck. Calibrated the thing twice. Three weeks of trouble. Ready to throw it away! HELP!
