The Nike+ SportWatch GPS builds all of Nike's popular running software into a watch with TomTom GPS technology inside, allowing you to track and monitor your workouts from your wrist. But many runners will be better off with an iPod and a Nike+ Sport Kit, which provide much of the same functionality for less money. quote

The big numbers and three-button interface let you check training data without breaking stride. Stuck on the treadmill? The included foot pod works indoors and is almost as accurate as the GPS. It all means you can focus on running. Yet the simplicity belies a high IQ.

For most runners, the Nike+ SportWatch GPS is a great and simple way to track your workouts. We wish it cost slightly less, but you're also getting the shoe sensor as part of the deal ... That said, serious runners or triathletes might find the SportWatch a little too simple ...

At $199 the SportWatch is a little pricey but I would agree that you’re getting what you pay for. Again, I’m no longer a huge fan of the whole “all-in-one” sports watch system but this one performs quite admirably and is amazingly easy to use.

The price is a little on the high side, as you can find rival devices for quite a bit less, but the overall design, the simplicity and the experience make us think it is a price worth paying.

A simple yet effective sport watch which tracks your time, pace and route easier than models twice the price. While not flawless in its performance, it's a reliable piece of sport kit for runners of all abilities.

The Nike+ SportWatch is a single-minded device that does what it does very well, but won’t get much use when it’s not collecting sweat.

Overall, the Nike+ SportWatch GPS is a great first effort for a sports watch from Nike and TomTom. If you are already a user of nikeplus.com I can see the lure of continuing to have access to your library of running data with a new sports watch

About May 27, 2012

The watch is attractive, if somewhat bulky for small wrists, and is easy to use. Its feature set is somewhat limited compared to high-end GPS sport watches already on the market from Garmin and Timex.

I've used the Nike+ SportWatch over the course of a mont, running distances of varying length all along a similar path. I'm also training for my first half marathon taking place in the fall and thought using an electronic device will help me achieve my goal of finishing my first half-marathon....

Very good product. Use it now on every run. Drawback: no independent data export, only wirk swith nike+ service (which is very good since its recent june 2012 redesign)

I've been using this for about 5 months now (running nearly every day). I haven't had any of the problems with acquiring satellites or accuracy issues that others are seeing. I run on wooded trail runs for reference. My acquisition times are less than a couple of minutes at most - less than...

I've had this watch for almost a year now. Run many a times with it. So far it has been a wonderful experience. I love to run, but I also like to know that I'm getting better at it. I wouldn't be very interested in running if I didn't know that I was improving. And having this watch lets me keep...

The fonts are really clear and easy to read - unlike the garmin I don't feel the need for reading glasses whilst on my run. It has fewer functions than the Garmin but it has enough for most runners and it is pretty flexible - you can set up laps or intervals, time or distance, & you can choose a...

Major fail on consistent recording of runs. I had several instances where the GPS must have lost signal and the mileage registered was no where near the actual distance I ran. I mean they were off to the tune of 30+ miles. Runs also just randomly stopped synching to the Nike website and that...

I have a narrow wrist and I can barely fit this watch on mine (small band). I also have trouble getting a fast GPS fix from time to time. However, when it works it works wonderfully and more accurate than a nike+ sensor and an iPod (which I've also had).
