A reader who has seen Nike’s Spring 2007 product catalog, which has been distributed to Nike retailers, confirmed the existence of the Nike+ watches… and adds some juicy new details.

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 […]

Ever wonder why it’s so difficult to find iPod nano cases or armband that are guaranteed to fit the Nike+iPod Sport Kit receiver? I spent several days at Macworld last week, speaking to the dozens of iPod accessory makers on the Expo floor, in an attempt to find out. I wasn’t prepared for some of […]

I woke up this morning to several email messages asking whether the Nike+iPod Sport Kit works with Apple’s newly announced iPhone. I spent the better part of yesterday wandering around Macworld taking pictures and asking questions, and I’m afraid I don’t have good news to report.

A reader has pointed me to a clever German product which attaches the Nike+iPod sensor to any running shoe, the Chip-Clip. This clear plastic cap fits on the tongue of the shoe and features a slot to thread a shoelace through, which keep the cap in place. There’s also an extended lip at the front […]

BusinessWeek has just posted a review of the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, and while it’s a thorough and positive (if not somewhat delayed) look at our favorite fitness gadget, I have to take issue with Matt Vella’s description of people who choose to use it with non-Nike+ shoes as “penny pinchers.” From the review: From a […]

Yes, I was happy that Nike (finally) released desktop widgets for tracking Nike+iPod workouts and challenge stats, but honestly, no one but me ever sees my desktop. I can’t for the life of me figure out why there isn’t an official Nike+ plugin or widget for popular blogging platforms. The Nike+iPod Sport Kit seems to […]

The crafty blogger over at Yarn-A-Go-Go has posted instructions on knitting your own shoe pouch for the Nike+iPod Sport Kit sensor. It should be a pretty easy project for someone with basic knitting skills, and the finished product looks much better than most of the other popular “shoe hacks.”

I wrote yesterday about Nikeplus.com’s Nike+iPod New Year’s Resolution Challenge, and mentioned that I though too much emphasis was being placed on on people not reaching their goals. I really wanted to see some recognition of people who do reach their goals. Well, my wish has come true. Nike has announced that they will donate, […]

Nike has added a New Year’s Resolution feature to the Nikeplus.com website. Registered Nike+iPod users can participate by setting a distance goal for themselves for the month of January, along with deciding what the consequences will be if they don’t reach the goal. At the end of the month, Nike will publicly display the consequences […]
