Let me start off by saying I have an iPhone which comes with the Nike+ iPod software already installed on it. (I assume a version of this is available for Android devices, but to be perfectly honest I'm not sure.) All I had to do was put the sensor in my shoe (after removing the foam piece occupying the space the sensor first in), open the app, walk around a little bit to activate it and viola! I was ready for my first workout. If the sensor has been properly installed, it will sit completely flush with the rest of the shoe under the insole. No, it doesn't matter which way it is inserted as long as it's in its designed space flat. It's also easy to remove should the need arise. The sensor is so lightweight it's 100% undetectable. The only reason I know it's in my shoe at all is because, well, I put it there. If not for that, I'd have no clue which shoe it was in. The 2014 Nike+ shoes now have a space for a sensor in both shoes, but this kit is just for ONE sensor to place in the left shoe. Just FYI.
Now there are also NUMEROUS Nike+ apps available, including Nike+ Running which I thought I would like, but it works off GPS...doing me zero good right now when it's -50 degrees outside. Okay so I just made up that temperature, but it is very cold outside and I'm not very brave, especially when it comes to taking on the elements in this weather. THIS is where the sensor and the Nike+ iPod app perfectly meet my needs. While I run on the treadmill, the app tracks my time, distance, pace and calories burned all while whispering sweet nothings in my ear. These sweet nothings depend on what I've asked it to let me know. If I've selected a workout with a distance goal, in a rather pleasant voice it whispers to me every half mile or kilometer the distance I've traveled. If I want to workout for a certain amount of time, it whispers to me every so often an update of how long I've been working out. Same for calories burned if calories is the primary goal I selected. A basic open ended workout is also available if you're unsure what your primary goal is before beginning a workout. As I'm training for a 5k, I find this to be an incredibly useful tool as many other devices I've tried using to help me keep track of my distance have fallen short. None of them have updated me on how far I've traveled, how far I have left to go and when I've completed said distance while running on the treadmill. This feature alone makes the sensor with every penny!
The Nike+ iPod app also keeps a history of workouts. The history includes the date and time of day of the workout, type of workout (basic/distance/time/calories), distance, time workout lasted, pace per mile and total calories burned during workout. The app also lets you know your time for your best mile as well as total distance for all workouts combined. All this info from just a little sensor in your shoe!
I also use the UP24 band by Jawbone. Yes, Nike has the Nike+ Fuelband, but it didn't when I bought my UP24, which I happen to truly love, so I don't know how well those two products work in conjunction with one another. I know it will convert your workout into Nikefuel points and you may not need to log your workout in the Fuelabnd app, these just aren't features I can attest to having firsthand knowledge about, not are they features I'm willing to fork over another $150 to find out about, but I doubt it's all that different than with the UP24. I've also used the Fitbit Force, but it just wasn't for me and I imagine the Nike+ Sensor works with it in much the same way as it does with the UP24 as well. Anyway, the Nike+ Sensor tracks all these great things while I'm wearing my Nike+ shoes. I wanted something to track all the total steps I take in a day so that's why I wear the UP24. All the steps I ran during said workout have already been added via bluetooth so at the end of a workout I enter in the amount of time I spent on said activity (e.g. running) and the UP24 lets me know the distance I traveled while running during that time frame. To my surprise the first couple of times this happened, the distance report from the UP24 was spot on accurate with the distance report from the Nike+ Sensor and Nike+ iPod app, letting me know both are working accurately. The UP24 doesn't let me know my progress while I'm working out which is why I'm so glad I got the sensor for my shoe even though I already had the UP24 band. They are not redundant purchases as each serves it's own purpose, yet both come together to paint a beautiful picture of not just your workouts, but your day as a whole.
(1) It only comes with an on board internal battery that cannot be swapped out. So when it dies you have to purchase a new Sensor. It could get expensive depending on your level of exercise, and whether or not you put the unit into sleep mode after running or walking.
(2) It should have some sort of visual indicator that let's you know when you put the unit into 'sleep mode' (in hopes of saving the internal battery).
(3) Should be cheaper. (But I do believe that if you are going to splurge on anything in this life it should be on something that attempts to keep your heart healthy and strong.)
Overall: I really like my sensor. It works well for me. I am not a crazy runner but have run nearly 40 miles since buying it 5 weeks ago. I think that it is a really good and necessary product that will do you a lot of good.
I recommend this product.
