Nike+ GPS App

Nike+ GPS

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!  :-)

    Sounds great. Now they need to make one for Android.

      Agreed! Windows Phone 7 too when it comes out. Although, Im not super excited about running with my expensive smartphone and getting it all sweaty…

    I didn’t think the iPod touch has GPS. How does it work without it?

      From Engadget: “And all it asks in return is access to the accelerometer and GPS modules inside your iOS 4-equipped iPhone or iPod touch (the latter’s lack of GPS means it loses out on route mapping, but all other features are retained).”

    Is there an ipad version of this?
