Danish blogger, climber, and Mac enthusiast Jonas Rabbe has posted a thorough review of his new Nike+iPod Sport Kit. While Nike+iPod reviews are a dime-a-dozen these days, Jonas includes an insightful look at how the Sport Kit experience could be improved, which makes the review well worth reading.
If you’re one of the many runners who have been suffering through the recent lags and service interruptions at the Nike+ website, you may be wishing for a better way to upload and view your Nike+iPod data. The folks at Gordon Labs know how you feel. They’re currently developing an alternate website, Runometer.com, which allows […]
I don’t know about you, but I have had my fill of watch news, Nike+ or otherwise. Yet, I can’t resist linking to this cool body mod from ModBlog: the 14 gage wristwatch piercing. I haven’t come across any good iPod piercings yet. As small and light as the new shuffle is, it should be […]
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 […]

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 […]
It looks like Apple’s iTunes store wasn’t the only site to buckle under the pressure of increased holiday traffic. Nike’s Nikeplus.com, the site where Nike+iPod Sport Kit users upload their running data and track their progress, has been hit with slowdowns and service outages for the past couple of days. I didn’t write about it […]
Merlin Mann, of 43Folders fame, has posted his Nike+iPod shoe hack to his Flickr photostream.
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 […]
