Nike bows new SportBand, iPhone site

Nike SportBand and iPhone

Nike today upgraded its Nike+ running gear with a new SportBand and an extra feature for iPhone users. The tracking device for calories, distance and speed has a new background to be more easily readable on the run and is weather sealed to prevent it getting wet. It can work as a stand-alone device or as a supplement to an iPhone or iPod that saves having to look at Apple's players to check run information.

The new SportBand arrives in three two-tone color schemes and should be available on Wednesday for $59.

Simultaneously, Nike also said it will soon launch an iPhone- and iPod touch-specific version of its Nike+ website to let owners of either device find their long-term data, such as their run history, without having to turn to a computer and use the Flash-heavy regular page. No timetable has been given for when the site will be ready.

    Runkeeper > Nike

    Runkeeper far surpasses nike and is the much better solution IMHO
