Get in Gear: Nike + Ipod Sports Kit

I love it when two great brands collaborate to make one cool super product. Nike and Apple have done just that.

To find out what it is,

First you're going to need the following:

  • An iPod Nano, $199-$249

  • Nike ready shoes (like the AirMax 180), $110
  • The Nike + iPod Sport Kit, $29

Once you have all three products (and a lot less money in your bank account), they work together with special shoe sensors, that are unobtrusive and waterproof and will feed your workout information to your iPod. During the workout the Nano screen will show you time, distance, pace and calories.

Why I am not selling everything I own (just yet) to get this product:
As of yet, the Kit does not provide a way to display your heart rate, which I'm guessing is the next step. Also, I usually wear my iPod in a holder on my arm so it may be annoying to hold the Nano through my run so I could see the stats.

Why we love this product:
Nike and Apple usually make great products-- so you know you're not throwing your money down the toilet on some random brand. The kit comes with programmed workouts which are great for people who like a little direction. All in all, the whole concept is just cool and we all need a new toy every once in a while.

Buy it all here, or you can look up a location near you to try it out before buying.

I want the Air Structure Triax+ 10! But I just bought a pair of New Balances a few weeks ago...

This is great but I don't have any of the items. I guess I know what I'm asking Santa for Christmas. :)

I, too, am a New Balance fan ... I don't have a Nano anyway though, so I'll just continue using the armband like Fit.
