Not everyone wants to pound the streets listening to hard house, trance techno or Celine Dion. Some want to hear the birds in the trees, the children playing and the sound of the car that’s just about to run them over. Enter Nike+ Sportsband.
It’s an evolution for the Nike+iPod kit, in that is dumps the iPod element. Instead, you monitor your workout through the band/watch/wrist contraption, and the monitor in your Nike trainers.
It’ll give you real time access to pace, distance, time and calories burnt, which can be transferred to your computer via the USB interface. As well as 16 hours of workout data, the wristband can be used as a USB key, to store documents, photos and the like. Once you’ve transferred the data, you can get all cyber-competitor with the other community members at Nikeplus.com. I wonder if the Nike+iPod and the Nike+Sportband members will play nicely together…?
On another note, is that really the nicest Nike trainers they could find for the picture?
