So the tip we mentioned a few weeks ago turned out to be true!
Nike just launched a Heart Rate Monitor made by Polar that is compatable with the Nike+ Sportband and iPod. Here is the official update from Nike.
To be honest, I am not super excited about this one. It would have been cool if the price point was right, but it seems priced rather high. By the time you buy a Sportband ($60) and the Heart Rate Strap ($70) you are all in for $130. For another $20 you could grab a Garmin Forerunner 305 and have GPS functionality.
Don’t get me wrong… I love my Nike+, but my Garmin is a monster
