I loved it When it Worked

Summary: Brief Introduction: ---------------------- I purchased this watch from Amazon back in June 2012. From the 1.5 years that I owned the watch, I've put in a little over 2,000 miles. I've ran about 600 miles running outside using the GPS and 1,400 miles running on treadmill. My Thoughts: ------------------ Up until December 2013, I love the watch and it served its purpose well. I thought I would be able to use this watch for at least another few years.
Pros: GPS looks future-istic You can track it online
Cons: The screen scratches really easily. bulky white, just don't get white. It stains really easy and we all wear jeans and it gets stained by your blue jeans It doesn't really tell you anything on the watch every thing is online.......
Summary: I have owned this watch since about a month after it came on the market. It is simplistic and user-friendly. I did find it motivational and I still like the nike + interface online better than say Garmin's or iFit. However, after about 1 year the watch stopped communicating with my computer. Nike will replace it but my new one also only lasted about 9 months. I'm on my third one now. It can also be a bit bulky.
Summary: I purchased a Nike+Sports Watch in Nov. 2012 within a month it began to leak moisture into the display. This is why only 3 stars. I only showered with it and did not submerse it at anytime. It's waterproof rating is 5 ATM (165 Ft) but clearly failed at far less that that. It even fogs up now by just wearing it. My watch appears to have been manufactured in August of 2011 if my interpretation of the label on the box is correct.
Summary: I run 4 - 5 times a week and always at night. This watch is not overwhelming with features which was disappointing for the price, but its accurate and comfortable. So give some and get some. My issue with the watch is the backlight........ Or the lack there of. The backlight activates with tapping the screen but only comes on for about 3 seconds.
Summary: I like the style and the fact you can plug the watch band directly into usb to sync data. What they don't tell you since there is no manual, though you can find one online ([...]), is that you need to run with the gps and shoe sensor for the an undisclosed amount of mileage so they can sync and the distance, pace, etc will be accurate. When you first run the distance will record .91 for every mile, which throws off the pace.
Lot of potential, but definitely a 1st generation product

Summary: I was very excited to get to try out this new Nike+ GPS watch with Tom Tom. I had used the Nike+ sensors for my shoes before, and while they were nice, my biggest complaint was that they weren't very accurate and if you walked/ran a lot they tended to run out of battery power within just a few months.
Summary: Great looking watch ( in it's category) and works straight out of the box. Works well with the bought heart monitor too. Not a fan of nikefuel as i'm not sure what it measures. I can earn it wearing the heart monitor on the sofa which makes the targets a little worthless. I love its simplicity and that in the world of GPS watches has to be good. Also the nike/ google map and log are pleasing if a little condescending.
