Nike+ SportWatch GPS
After a run is finished, the runner can upload the tracking data to their account at nikeplus.com and share their accomplishment on Facebook and Twitter. The website offers coaching tips, tools for setting and tracking progress towards goals. The site also has maps that display previous runs and helps runners find popular new locations to do future runs.
The watch can combine GPS with the included Nike+ sensor to track distance, stride, time, and calories burned. While the watch is out in the open, the GPS receiver determines location correctly to record time, speed and distance. When inside a building, the watch uses different sensors to produce the same information. Together, GPS and the sensor magically synchronize to the wearer’s pace to provide accurate stats wherever the wearer is, even if the GPS signal is sporadic.
