Nike Plus….gadget girl

So, I’d consider myself a bit of a gadget girl, I like all the newest gadgets. My husband bought home the new Nike+ sportsband from his school for me to try out.

Funnily enough, their motto is “all you have to do is run with it”….quite funny considering I’ve tried everything, and still can’t get it to register a run. (and yes, I did run with it)

I’d consider myself the kind of person that doesn’t particularly like to read manuals either, but some kind of support for the thing would be great, particularly since it DOESN’T SEEM TO WORK!

I’m just annoyed I guess, because I just ran a whole heap, and can’t log my run. Apparently, I missed holding down the start key once for three seconds, then once for a second to start, then once for a second to end.

Not only that, but I’ve been wearing if for the last two days, and already the LCD screen is broken.

The sensor that fits in your shoe is quite uncomfortable, but you can buy an adjustment for it to fit onto your shoes, rather than inside where you run on.

Can’t say that it’s the best product I’ve seen. The website is good, however, heavily flashed based, but it does give you the option to map runs and gives you a training plan also.

I don’t like that it’s a little negative in it’s motivation (I don’t really respond to that style). For example, telling me that I’m “1km behind” gives me (and I must think most people) more impulse to give up, than catch up
