Nike and Apple are linked in a partnership bringing the worlds of sports and music together with the innovative Nike+iPod products. The first product developed through this partnership is the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, a wireless system that allows Nike+ footwear to talk with your iPod Nano to connect you to the ultimate personal running and workout experience.
The new Nike+ Air Zoom Moire is the first footwear designed to talk to an iPod. Nike plans to make many of its leading footwear styles Nike+ ready, connecting millions of consumers to the Nike+iPod experience. With the Nike+ footwear connected to iPod nano through the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, information on time, distance, calories burned and pace is stored on iPod and displayed on the screen; real-time audible feedback also is provided through headphones.
The kit includes an in-shoe sensor and a receiver that attaches to iPod. A new Nike Sport Music section on the iTunes Music Store and a new nikeplus.com personal service site help maximize the Nike+iPod experience.
Specially designed Nike apparel, including jackets, tops, shorts and an iPod Nano armband, bring together the Nike+iPod experience with waterproof pockets that accommodate iPod nano and are designed to make it easy to operate while staying tuned to your music during an active workout.
Nike+iPod Sport Kit RRP: $48.00 through the Apple Store and Apple Authorised Resellers.
The Nike+iPod Sport Kit requires a Nike+ shoe and an iPod Nano with a Mac with a USB 2.0 ports and Mac OS X version 10.3.9 or later and iTunes 6.0.5; or a Windows PC with a USB 2.0 port and Windows 2000, XP Home or Professional (SP2) and iTunes 6.0.5.
