    Works great.

    I bought the new (at the time) second generation Nano back in Oct. 06 and bought the Nike+ kit the same day. I've ran over 270 days this year and all of them have been with the Nike+.

    I can't believe all the reviews talking about how bad the battery life is. Not only that but they mention following the instructions on how to maximize said battery life. In a year I've not done one thing to my sensor except put it in two newer pairs of shoes. I never take it out. I never turn it off. It's in my shoes through -5º days, it's in there in 95º days. It's been through rain, sleet, snow and not once have I even thought about removing it to dry out.

    Finally a year later it's time for a new one. For about a week I knew I was running faster/farther than the data showed. Sure enough today I received a message on the Nano stating my sensor battery was low and needed replacement. Not bad.

    I think I can pony up for a new sensor yearly. Especially since I've found you only need to buy the sensor and not the whole kit.

    Good, but you have to buy one every year

    My wife and I have really liked using the Nike + Ipod system for the last year or so. We both like how it keeps info about each of our runs and I know I definitely run more after buying it. However, be aware that you'll need to buy a new sensor every year. We bought ours at the same time last year, and this year, within a few days, both of ours had ran out of juice and needed replacing - $40 + shipping for two of them. Still worth it, but it would be nice if future versions had a way of replacing the battery. More

    This is a great product, but a little advertising would have been nice. A month ago I needed a sensor and had to buy the entire kit. I would have much rather bought just the sensor. This should have been out since the kits started selling. More

    Works great at the beginning but accuracy seems to change as batteries die. With the Nike+ GPS app out there its a lot more accurate with or with out GPS and is a one time buy no replacement needed. More

    I use it with my iphone nike app. I really wanted to start running and actually being able to hear in my headphones while listening to music how fast/far I was going pushed me to keep going. This is made for the Nike free shoes and they are super comfy. Thanks! More
