... but the Apple/Nike lovechild failed me. I've tried to calibrate my Nike + sensor and flip it every which way, to no avail. It would've been such a cool toy to run with if it actually measured the distances I've run properly. I really liked the interface on the Nike website and how it keeps track of your workouts. But it keeps recording my runs inaccurately, so there's no point keeping it. While it did goad me into running 4.5 miles on my first run, now that I've wised up it's just frustrating. I had such a cute sensor holder too! It looked adorable on my Asics kicks. Darn.
I'm using iMapmyrun now instead, a free iPhone application that tracks my run using GPS. It's pretty accurate but you can't exit the application and go into, say, your iPod because then it stops recording your run. Which can be troublesome when I decide that "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" isn't cutting it right now, and I need a push from "Uprising" by Muse.
I went to the Nike store today to return the sensor. I think it's really smart of them to give you a 20% discount that you can spend within the next 2 hours after returning something. But even smart companies have their low points. Like my disappointing sensor, and this WTF commercial over here ...
