This morning I was browsing Engadget like I do everyday, and something caught my eye. The Engadget team posted a Review for the Nike+ GPS App! I had no idea Nike / Apple had this in the works and it is a very welcome surprise!
As you may or may not know, I run with both the Nike+ Sportband and a Garmin 405. The reason I wear two devices is pretty simple. I enjoy the super accurate GPS data of the Garmin, but also really like the social aspects of the Nike+ community. So I can’t really pick one over the other.
This app can be used on a iPhone or iPod touch. So for those of you who own either of these devices, its a slam dunk! I am not a big fan of apple products so I own neither, however, there are a few really great benefits to this app:
- Super accurate GPS data!
- No more Nike+ footpod (you can wear whatever shoes you want!)
- No more Nike+ sportband
- No more Apple adapaters
- Great price ($1.99)
The Nike+ GPS App can be downloaded right now from the App Store and appears to address all the current short coming of the Nike+ system. It has gotten stellar reviews all around, and for only $1.99, what are you waiting for!
