TIME, Mossberg look at Nike+iPod

updated 09:55 am EDT, Thu July 20, 2006

Nike+iPod reviewed

The Nike+iPod shipped last Thursday to much fanfare and hype, including a CNBC preview deemed the product 'revolutionary', and now critics are agreeing. This week, TIME magazine gave the Nike+iPod the honor of being the "Gadget of the Week: "For a field already glutted with gadgets, the Nike+iPod kit is the most elegant of high-tech runner's aids." The mini-review notes that the kit (unfortunately) requires users to purchase Nike shoes--though as MacNN reported recently, the kit can be used with almost any shoe. Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal is also pleased with product, but said "We hope this product can improve in the future to do other things like distinguishing walks from runs, automatically triggering your PowerSong when you slow down..." Mossberg also suggested incorporating a heart-rate monitor in a later version.
