TUAW First Look: Nike+iPod on your iPhone 3GS

When the second generation of iPod touch was announced, one slide on the presentation included built-in support for the Nike+iPod sensor. The cool thing was that you no longer needed the unsightly dongle hanging off your device. The touch just "sees" the Nike sensor and you could add it to the...

BusinessWeek gives Nike+iPod thumbs up

In a review of Nike+iPod today, Mike Vella of BusinessWeek gives the combination a good review saying the unit is easy-to-use and accurate, despite it's lack of a heart rate monitor.

Look at your workout data without using the Nike Plus website

Matt is a big fan of the Nike + iPod kit, as it would seem more people who use it are. He does have on problem with it, though. There is not an easy way to share your running data with others.

To say that the Nike + iPod sports kit has been a hit would be something of an understatement. His Steveness told us on Sept. 12th that 450,000 of the kits had been sold in just 90 days, but I wondered if anyone was actually using them. It turns out that lots of folks are, and Nike has just...
