From the Manufacturer
You don't just take the iPod nano on your run. You let it take you. Music is your motivation. But what if you want to go further? Thanks to a unique partnership between Nike and Apple, your iPod nano becomes your favorite workout companion and coach.
A complete workout companion. See it in detail.

Run to your favorite music while getting valuable workout information.
Get in Gear
Meet the three must-haves for the ultimate synthesis of sport and music: a pair of Nike+ shoes, an iPod nano, and the Nike + iPod Sport Kit. Find out what happens when the leading name in sports and the leading name in digital music team up to take on your workout.
First, get a pair of Nike+ shoes. Only Nike+ shoes feature a built-in pocket under the insole specially engineered for the Nike + iPod sensor. For seamless, stylish integration, add Nike+ apparel that holds your iPod nano and receiver.
Next, get an iPod nano. Skip-free playback, a brilliant display, and up to 1,000 songs in an impossibly small iPod keep you light on your feet. And only iPod nano syncs your complete workout data with both iTunes and nikeplus.com.
Lastly, you'll need the Nike + iPod Sport Kit. The Sport Kit allows your Nike+ shoe to talk to your iPod nano. The sensor uses a sensitive accelerometer to measure your activity, then wirelessly transfers this data to the receiver that's plugged into the dock connector on your iPod nano.
Rock 'n' Run
See the minutes tick by. Watch the miles unfold. Hear real-time feedback. All to your favorite music--including the one song that always gets you through the home stretch. As you run or walk, the sensor sends information to your iPod nano, tracking your time, distance, pace, and calories burned. If you choose, real-time, spoken feedback can even alert you to milestones throughout your workout.
Stay in Sync
Sync up after you cool down. Just as seamlessly as it syncs your music, photos, and calendars, the iPod nano also syncs your run. Simply connect your iPod nano to your Mac or PC, and your workout data syncs to both iTunes and nikeplus.com, where you can see your runs, set goals, and challenge friends. The Internet is an open road. Staying in sync is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Connect: Any mere pedometer can show you stats while you run. But thanks to the Nike + iPod sensor and receiver, the iPod nano also transfers your workout data to the Internet as soon as you sync. Connect your iPod, and iTunes takes over, automatically syncing all your run data and sending it to nikeplus.com.
- Compare: Remember each run. Analyze your performance. Break your last record. Stay in tune with your goals. Nikeplus.com keeps stats on every step. Check your speed, distance, and calories burned--by run, by week, or by month--all from a graphical interface as intuitive as it is stunning.
- Compete: Nikeplus.com keeps you connected with runners from every corner of the web. And that's where the real race begins. Use nikeplus.com to challenge anyone, anywhere to a virtual race. Run on your own time, on your home turf, then log on to nikeplus.com to retrieve your results.

I bought this for my wife (forget about having to have Nike+ shoes - it works fine slipped into laces or in a shoe wallet). She plugged it into her first-gen (1G) Nano, and instantly the Nike+ menu option appeared. There's a little calibration that has to be done, but once you get going, it's just neat. You can specify your workout type (distance, duration, just go), and then select a playlist (or shuffle, or something else) and you are off!
There's even a built in voice that will give you a verbal run summary at the touch of a button (and at scheduled intervals).
I run with a fourth-gen (4G) big (disk) iPod, and no, it doesn't work with my iPod. Too bad. I might have to get a Nano just for running - this is too cool, and saves the time off of keeping a running log - it keeps one for you, which you can upload.
-don't need Nike shoes
-works amazingly well out of the box
-easy to use
-neat features (like voice alerts about pace, distance, etc)
-only works with the Nano
-supposedly can't replace the battery in the shoe transponder - we'll see about that
-some calibration required
The main reason that this is so motivating is the Nike website. When you sync your iPod your information is uploaded to the Nike website where you can view great charts and graphs of your runs. It tracks your records as well (fastest mile, furthest run, etc.) It allows you to set goals (run 40 miles in 4 weeks, burn 10,000 calories in 4 weeks, etc.) It also allows you to challenge other people with this device. Well, my best friend got one for Christmas as well. He lives 250 miles away and we are already on our second challenge. The first was who can run the most miles in 30 days. The current is who can run 60 miles first. The website keeps track of your progress and shows you how far each participant has gone so far. So you can see if you are ahead or need to pick up the pace. It is great and makes you want to run further and more often.
I always knew I was competitive but I never realized how competitive I was! The other day I ran 7 miles (further than I have ever gone at one time in my life) just so that I could get a good headstart on my friend!
The main problem with this gadget is that it is disposable. Its battery is NOT RECHARGEABLE, I've had two experiences with it:
-The first time i took it to travel with me and forgot to put it to sleep, since it is motion activated, it completely discharged during travel. HAD TO TRASH IT.
-I bought a second device, and this time, when I was going to travel, I put it to sleep as the manual suggested. I took it with me on my travel and when I was going to run in my destination, my surprise was that I COULD NEVER BRING IT OUT OF THE SLEEP MODE. Since it desn't have any light, or indicator you cant really know for sure whether the device is On or Off, in my case I was not able to bring it back to life. This happened twice, since I bought one for my wife also (actually I've owned three of this).
I want another one, but I am not motivated to do it until NIke make improvements on this issue.
If you are considering buying one, please dont take it with you if you are travelling.
Hope this review gets to the ears of Nike, Inc.
