Summary: I was pleased with this watch all winter. It worked well, seemed to be pretty accurate and had a nice backlit screen for runs in the dark. However, once spring came and I started running without long sleeves, I found it very uncomfortable on my wrist. If I made it tight, it cut off the circulation to my hand. If I loosened it, it jammed in to the bones in my wrist with each arm pump. I am a small woman and perhaps it is just too bulky a watch for me.
Summary: This product is not reliable . First problem is the GPS connectivity very bad . I lost most of my runs because it just keep losing signals and during my last race event it did not pick up anything . This product has lot of other flaws as well you cannot discard your run if by mistake you start tracking .
Unreliable - good when it works, but doesn't consistently work

Summary: Consistency is the most important criteria for any GPS watch - if the watch can't connect to the satellites, then it doesn't matter what features the watch has. The SportWatch unfortunately fails to consistently connect. When the watch connects, its speed readings, time elapsed, distance elapsed, or whatever selections you choose (I rotate between those 3) are accurate and terrifically helpful for a distance runner like me.
Summary: Worst customer service experience I have ever experienced! I purchased this watch for my son for his birthday in January, he is a cross-country runner. The band started to come apart in June, so we contacted Nike regarding the issue since it was still under warranty. We were emailed a UPS label, and mailed the watch back to Nike for replacement. After 2 weeks of no communication, I called Nike and was told that the watch was received but nothing had been done with it.
Summary: Good tool to measure distance, and speed for paddleboarding and running. There is a real benefit to use GPS in unfamiliar water or new running routes. Two issues: 1) the watch band barely fits at the last loop and therefore is somewhat tight and uncomfortable. Since I purchased online, there was no opportunity to check the fit. 2) After a few weeks, the watch started pausing during active running and paddleboarding, therefore not providing accurate data.
Summary: I'm just not that big. Muscular, but not huge. I'm usually on the second to last hole on most watches. This watch doesn't even come close to fitting. If you have a larger wrist, I would definitely try it on at a store before ordering. That said, the display is huge and the user interface fairly simple, which is nice. But I had to return it. If a watch won't go on your wrist it's not much good.
This Watch Is Too Fragile For "Sporting" Activities
4 February 2012
Summary: This watch is not durable and I do not recommend it if you plan to wear it during any active sport. While taking off my Nike+ Sports Watch, I dropped it about 2 feet onto a hardwood floor and the screen cracked. I called Nike to inquire about a replacement and they instructed me to send it back. After returning the watch, Nike denied my claim without any explanation.
Summary: I wanted to really like this watch, which I won at a conference and used for the first time after my Garmin 610 broke, but the watch was seriously lacking in pace accuracy. During a marathon, the watch routinely was was about 15 seconds off in terms of pace calculations in an area with normally excellent satellite reception. So, I was running thinking I was doing 8:50, then when the lap data would show, it would actually be 9:02 to 9:06.
