I love, love this watch!! I've been using the Nike+ running app since I started running. Love the app but felt I wasn't getting everything I wanted. I had purchased their Sport band but just wasn't pleased with it much. Enter Christmas and telling my wonderful hubby the one thing I wanted. The Nike GPS Sport watch. I even dropped hints on Facebook.
A few of the things that I do miss about the app is hearing the cheers. Sounds small, but it really does motivate you to keep going. I also miss being able to hit a power song when I need it as well as hearing the mileage at each mile. Not a big deal, just gotta look at the watch for that. The watch does feel a bit chunky, but its not bad at all. I'm not one to wear a watch anymore, hello isn't that why we have our cell phones?! ;) I still have my app on my phone, just so I can stay updated on who's ahead in running the most. Just have to refresh and it updates with the latest run. And the best part....my phone battery doesn't die as quickly on runs. Running both the app and my music was killing it quickly. You don't have to have the sensor, but it does help especially if you get in areas where the GPS signal could be blocked. I don't wear Nike shoes, but have one of the pouches on my left shoe.
So, on a scale of 1-10. I give it a 10!! Love it!
|It lists up to 50 runs and gives all the stats just like the app does.|
|You can use the side buttons to arrow down to where you wanna go. Or if you are running, just hold the blue button|
for 3 seconds for a quick start.
|It lists all your records. Fastest Mile, 5k, 10k, longest run.|
|This is one part I'm nervous about. It seems this would be easy to break off. It comes with a USB to|
charge and upload your runs. It says you can also just use this, however I feel it isn't best to do that.
|It has a back light as well. It took me a few times to figure out how to work it. You have to double tap the screen.|
Make sure you do hard taps. This is so you don't accidentally hit it when you don't need it.
|Ignore my shoe..its time for an new pair. ;)|
|The issue I had with the app when using a treadmill was how inaccurate it would be.|
Even using the tip Nike provided by having my phone on me and not on the treadmill.
With the watch, just turn off the GPS and get to running.
|To pause the run, just push the blue button. Push it again to start back.|
I hope my review helped with any questions anyone might have. Feel free to ask any questions you have. :)
