I live in New England and Winter is coming. (Thanks Ned Stark.) I plan to start running at a gym, and I like the Nike+ Running app on iOS. Nike says to hold your iPhone in your hand as you run to use the accelerometer, but I would prefer to use the device on an armband. Since my arm moves while I run, does anyone know if this would be accurate enough? Has anyone tried this?
The man today at the Nike Factory store told me I didnt need the actual sensor for my shoe if I have the app on my iphone 4. So I didnt get it, and came home and tried to get it to work (with no sensor) and typically enough, it didnt work. So How is this phone supposed to recognize a shoe with no chip?!?! And if it is a case of the device is the only thing tracking everything, than why cant i run in KSwiss or Adidas? Please help before I spend money that I may not have needed to.
I am not planning on running down the street with the iPad in a giant arm band. But What if running on a treadmill, I could use it to track my run and watch videos on the large display. Even if you have to use the receiver like on the nano. I doubt this will work but just curies.
Has anybody tried this one with Snow Leopard on a Mac?
