Nike watch and running chip

Friday, July 15, 2011

I purchased new Nike running shoes, the watch and chip around 3 weeks ago. I am so happy with it that I thought I would share the info for anyone who is running and wants to track their mileage. It is the handiest little device and not too expensive. Firstly you need a pair of Nike shoes that are made with a place for the chip. Then you purchase the watch and chip together. It is super easy to set up an account online, then everytime your run, you take the part out of the watch and put it in your computer and it automatically uploads and stores your info, including distance, pace, calories, and time. I have previously only ran mostly on a treadmill and did not like the idea of not knowing how far or how fast I was running. Now with this little set, I can run outside and still track everything. Very handy and highly recommended!

P.S. I do not own stock in Nike :-)

    It sounds like a neat gadget. I'm glad to read that it is working well for you. Does it tell you your pace as you are running?

    Sounds like a great investment! I have something similar on my droid phone - run keeper app - and I love knowing my stats during and after a run. The only problem is that my phone is pretty heavy, but it's totally worth running with it!
