Fitness Swellness: Nike+ GPS watch in new colours

>Nike+ Sportwatch GPS

The Nike+ GPS watch is in some fancy new colours. Guess which one I covet? Yes, the neon green Volt above. Although the white one may actually be winning my heart more now…


The Nike+ system is what I have always used to track my marathon training. I used to use the Sportband as the actual gadget to do so, but now use the Nike+ Running GPS app on my iPhone.

The problem, though, is that I’m always worried my iPhone battery will run out. When I forget to actually shut down all of my apps before a run, some days the iPhone battery gets very close to zero power. What with the Nike app actually doing its thing along music playing (lately, I use Songza for my workouts), on long runs (which can last more than three hours — gosh when I actually type that out, that seems kind of cray cray), it’s a real worry. Big pet peeve? A run not being recorded properly.

So I’m thrilled to test out the Nike+ GPS sportwatch ($169) — no more stressing about that teeny iPhone battery. I will start running with it now so I have time to get used to it before running the Vancouver Marathon on May 5. The watch has got TomTom GPS in it, so you don’t need to have the Nike chip in your shoe to use the watch (although you can have the chip as a backup if you often run in remote areas where it’s hard to get a GPS signal or if you often run indoors).

(And oh, btw, Nike+ tells me I’m nearing 5,000 kilometres in my running career. which is roughly the driving distance from Montreal to Vancouver. Like, whoa.)

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
