Nike & TomTom Release GPS Exercise Sports Watch
They’ve tried to keep the watch simple by including three buttons and a ‘Tap Screen’ for navigation.
When on a run, the watch will record you’re route by capturing location information, calculate your pace, calories burned and running time. To accurately determine this information it works in tandem with the shoe-based Nike+ Sensor.
Once you’ve finished running, the watch can be plugged into a computer (Windows and Mac) where it will automatically open the Nike+ connect interface and transfer your information to nikeplus.com. The site presents a runner’s GPS mapping, total kilometres, pace and elevation data for their most recent run in an easy-to-digest fashion; one resembling the Nike+ GPS iPhone app.
“With more than 150 million runs logged since its launch in 2006, Nikeplus.com captures the pulse of the running world everyday,” said Stefan Olander, VP of Nike Digital Sport.
“Providing runners with accurate pace, distance and location information during and after their run gives them the information they need to better train and track their progress,” he added.
