Here is the official word from Nike. They say “late July”, however I just spoke with Niketown in NYC and they said July 1st (tomorrow). We shall see!
The 2009 SportBand is coming soon. We have made some updates for 2009 that include an enhanced display screen for better visibility, welded construction for improved water resistance, and we now offer two new colors: Yellow and Pink with grey accents. The new SportBands will be in US stores in late July with other countries to follow in August.
To make your running experience even better, the Nike+ SportBand will connect you to the all new nikeplus.com. We’ve updated our website with a new look, enhanced features, and new ways to connect with friends. Nikeplus.com continues to be the place to track your runs, challenge your friends, get coaching tips, and be part of a growing global community. Look for the new site to launch this summer in the US, with other country sites to follow soon.
Please check nikeplus.com in your country of residence for more news and details.
If you have had performance issues with your 2008 SportBand related to display or water resistance, you can exchange it for a new one. Please take your Nike+ SportBand to the original place of purchase for assistance. We have made arrangements with our authorized retailers all over the world to handle Nike+ SportBand returns.
If you reside in the U.S. please visit our Returns Guidelines page for additional return information.
