Apple + Nike = Awesomeness
So, I went to the Apple website to check out new products, and the first thing that caught my attention after the big picture of the new 27″ iMac that is. I clicked on store and noticed something called the Nike+ iPod sensor, being the curious person that I am, I clicked on it just to find out what exactly a Nike + iPod sensor is.
I noticed after clicking on the Nike+ iPod sensor that on the left pane was a link for a Nike + iPod Sport Kit. What followed after the click on the Sport Kit was pure amazement.
It seems that Nike has developed a pair of Sneakers called “Nike+”. These special shoes come equipped with a built in pocket that will house a special sensor that Apple sells. This sensor will track your movement during your workout routine and communicate wirelessly with your iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPhone, etc…
The information that is tracked is stored on your iPod and when you sync your iPod with your iTunes is uploaded to Nike which will track your workout routine, goals, etc…
According to the description you can share your results with other members and even challenge other members to a virtual race. I don’t know how much Nike charges for the shoes but Apple only charges $29.00 for the kit. I’m thinking about buying this kit to try it out.
Has anyone had the opportunity to try this yet? How well would you rate the product? Does it help keep you in shape?
