Looks like Nike is planning to release a new product that lets runners record and upload Nike+ data without an iPod: The Nike Speed+ Watch. Many thanks to quick-thinking reader Steve who saw the Speed+ listed on the new Nike Store Europe site just after it went live on Monday night. He was able to save a screen grab before the product was removed from the site.

Nike Speed+ Watch

The Nike Speed+ (Style#WM0009) is described this way:

See time fly. The Nike Speed+ watch tells you exactly how far you’ve come while you log mile after mile.

  • Watch receives signal from Nike+ sensor and converts data to speed and distance information.
  • LCD displays distance, pace, elapsed time and calories.
  • Summary run data is sent to USB for tracking on nikeplus.com
    Nike Electrolite delivers one-touch backlighting.

The Speed+ comes in black only. No price or availability date is given.

I’m guessing from the description that data from the Speed+ watch will be sent wirelessly to a USB dongle connected to your computer for uploading to Nikeplus.com.

You may remember that in November Men’s Health Magazine leaked details of another Nike+ watch, the Amp+, which lets users control their Nike+ enabled iPod nano and view running data. The Amp+ watch has yet to be released.

The LCD face displays distance, pace, elapsed time, and calories. There are obviously no music controls. Replacable battery. Men’s and women’s styles. Retail price: $129. [...]
