Summary: This gadget thing is not accurate at all I run a mile in about 9.30 and it keeps giving me inaccurate distances. I recently did a 5K and at the end of it all it said I had done 1.94K Even after calibration
Summary: I do not need motivation to run or workout. I feel the IPod Sensor is very inaccurate. On my first calibration attempt i walked a mile, and the sensor read .13 miles. the most i could calibrate it at was .35 so i did the best i could. I then ran a mile at an average pace, and it said I ran less than a half a mile. I calibrated it to .75 which was the most it would let me at the time. Since then i have been able to calibrate it to the distance i run.
Summary: This is great WHEN it works. It fails to connect to my iPhone 4 (iOS 5.0.1) 50% of the time. It's become a joke with those I run with because I spend so much time "walking around" to get it to connect. Turning off the iPhone and then back on, sometimes solves the synch issue. Also, when a call comes in, even if I keep running or walking while talking, it goes into automatic pause mode!
Definitely one of the more unimpressive products I've bought through Apple.

Summary: This product is pretty neat when it works. But I've had massive headaches getting the chip to work; getting the website login to work; getting runs to sync. I still can't get it working. I would still recommend the product, but just recognize that you're probably committing to spend time to get it to work as advertised. I hope mine might eventually work as advertised in the future.
Summary: It works well with time and distance. However, it is defective on the calorie. Today, I was tired and sweating after walking for more than 18 minutes, but it said that I burned 0 calorie. It doesn't work well at all on an elliptical. In brief, it works OK. The price is a little expensive.
Summary: I have been using the Nike + iPod Sensor for a month along with my Iphone 3GS. The most important problem I have is connectivity. Before I start a workout, the application allegedly detects the sensor. But once I start the workout the applications fails to measure my speed or distance. Apparently it looses connectivity. This happened to me already several times.
Summary: I really wanted to love this thing the way that I love my macbook pro and my iphone but I can't. There are times when it is hit or miss and I constantly walk around in circles trying to calibrate it and nothing happens. Additionally the battery life on this thing is something that needs to be addressed. I can deal with buying a new one yearly but surely there has got to be a someway apple can put an LED on there to let you know the battery is dying or running low.
Summary: This is a wonderful product until you try to upload your workout stats to your computer. Most of the time the moment that the Nike+ sync transmitter is disconnected from your iPod, all information is lost. If this could be rectified it would be stellar.
love the product but can't to replace the sensor is way to much money.

Summary: I've had no problems with the product but I must complain about a replacement sensor costing nineteen dollars when you the entire thing cost thrity dollars. It almost makes more sense to but everything again. This price point should be lowered.
