The Nike+ Sensor: Run Tracking Made Easy
The Nike+ Sensor makes it easy to track your time, distance, pace, and more while you run. Afterward, upload your run data to Nikeplus.com, the world's largest running club, where you can monitor your progress, join challenges, map your runs and connect with friends.
The sensor is sold individually, so it's ideal if you're due for a replacement, want another one for a second pair of Nike+ ready shoes, or need one to hook up to your Apple device.
How it Works
Simply place the Nike+ Sensor under the sockliner of your left Nike+ ready shoe and start running to sync it with your Nike+ SportWatch GPS, iPhone 3GS, or other Nike+ tracking device. The sensor measures your pace, distance, time elapsed and calories burned. This information is transmitted wirelessly to your device for real-time feedback while you train.

The Nike + technology includes this little device that fits in a little hollowed out area beneath the insert of your favorite Nike shoe. The device is essentially a pedometer that is pretty darn accurate. It transmits information to either a Nike armband/wrist band or an iPod nano and helps runners or walkers track their distance, time, and speed.
First, you won't feel the device in your shoe. I read a review on another website in which a nice lady was complaining bitterly about how she could feel it in her shoe. Chances are, she failed to remove the little foam patch that currently occupies the little area where the Nike + sensor is supposed to go. Once removed, the sensor will fit in that hole and is flush with the bottom of the inside of the shoe. Once you put the insert back in over the sensor, you'll never know it's there. I also read someone else indicate that they could feel a weight difference once it was in the shoe. This is, in a word, absurd. If your body is so finely tuned that you can detect a weight difference between the shoe with the device and the shoe without it, you are truly an amazing human being, and I suspect you have x-ray vision and can run faster than a speeding bullet.
The reason the product gets 4 stars and not 5 is this: The website is less than impressive. The sensor transmits information to your wristband or iPod and can then be used to track your performance on Nike's website. It's nice that you can do this. The device comes, right out of the box, essentially "accurate" for the average runner, but it can be fine tuned for those that want even more accurate results.Read more ›

So for those people using this with iPods or iPhones without GPS, it's been a great product. I only wish Nike was more clear about the fact that its sensors are now completely unnecessary in many cases.
I'd also suggest reading reviews about the Nike+ website before purchasing this. When it works, it's fantastic. Along with the sensor or the iPhone app, it makes running much more stimulating and fun. But the website often fails, certain pages load very slowly, and sometimes not at all.
I don't own Nike+ shoes, but the sensor is secure on the tongue of my Saucony shoes with the help of a velcro "sticker" backing that I attached.
Calibrating the sensor was simple as I ran a known distance and let Nike+ know how far it had been. I then ran the distance again and the sensor was on the money. Since then, I've run a 10k and the race's mile markers were on the money with what Nike+ was telling me.
I'm now rather addicted to checking my pace and distance via the one-touch feedback of the iPod. A click of the home button mid-run gives you your time, distance, and current pace. Seeing stats after the run is nice - progress (or regression) is clear. Then the uploading that information to NikeRunning.com is easy (after initial setup) and motivating - I'm working on several goals and "competitions". Fun stuff.
As for cons, I find it annoying that the battery isn't replaceable in the sensor. A few bucks for a new battery would be better than twenty bucks for a brand new sensor. And it's also too bad that settings can't be saved for multiple runners. My wife and I use the same iPod when we run, but only one of use can be calibrated and saving stats with Nike+.
