I bought this before I reupped my gym membership and it doesnt make much sense to use it while running on a treadmill. Break that stereotype of the fat guy living in his mothers basement and use this to get in shape! Below is what Nike says about the watch. I am asking $50 lower than I paid for it. I want $160 shipped
. If you are a runner and want to keep track of your runs, distance, pace, etc this is a great watch to have.
This is obviously the stock photo, I will add one of the actual watch, box, GPS, cord, and paperwork when I get home at 2300.
The Nike+ SportWatch GPS powered by TomTom®: Never Run Alone Again
Think Less, Run Better
Put on your Nike+ SportWatch GPS, go outside and run. The Nike+ Sensor is optional. Tap the screen to mark laps and activate the backlight during your run, and personalize the data that you want to see during your run. For direct connect, USB contacts are built into the watch strap—just plug the watch directly into a USB port on your computer to upload run data and recharge the battery.
Using GPS by TomTom with the Nike+ Sensor, you can start tracking your run instantly, and get accurate speed and distance information, indoors or out—even if the GPS signal gets interrupted. The Nike+ SportWatch GPS by TomTom tracks your time, distance, pace, heart rate and calories burned. It also shows your mapped route, with pace data, and changes in elevation on Nikeplus.com. And it's heart-rate monitor compatible with the Polar Wearlink+ Transmitter.
You'll Never Slack Again
