Nike Nike+ Sportwatch GPS
Pull on your shoes, strap on the Nike+ Sportwatch GPS and watch the miles tick by. Nike is all about the running experience, and now they've teamed up with TomTom to use GPS tracking technology to help you track your progress, set goals, challenge friends and even find great new running routes. The large, high-res display has a tap-activated screen to light it up and to mark laps while you run. This GPS watch tracks your time, distance and pace, even when out of satellite range indoors if you have the included Nike+ Sensor in your shoe. When you're at home, connect to Nikeplus.com to see your mapped route, pace data and elevation changes all while recharging the battery through the USB port. You'll need a computer with internet access to fully take advantage of it, but once you start recording your running and you're getting attaboys from this sporty little Nike watch, you'll be hooked. Think less, run better and stay motivated with the Nike Plus Sportwatch GPS.

Ditch the Armband!
I loved the traceability of Nike+, but my Nano didn't have GPS and obviously couldn't utilize the mapping features of the site. I got the Nike+ GPS app on my iPhone, but who wants to run long distance with their iPhone in their hand? And armbands drive me absolutely crazy; it's an impossible feat to find a comfortable and functional one! So what's the solution? The Nike+ Sportswatch GPS! It's comfortable, easy to use and has a cool design (in my opinion). Obviously a major dependency of the product is the GPS signal so if you run in places with little to no signal it may not work as well. Having a Nike+ sensor in your shoe will help when there is weak GPS signal, but it won't be as accurate as true GPS. Luckily I run routes with good signals so I have never had any issues. The build in USB plug makes uploading from your watch to your computer so easy. It is a bit pricy, but for me it was well worth it to be able to ditch all the things slowing down my running while increasing my route accuracy. A good friend of mine got this watch as well and has similar feelings about it as I do. We would both recommend it to anyone looking for something to track their running. Time to ditch that armband!
