iPod-ready Nike+ heart rate monitor to launch by June 1st

updated 12:10 pm EDT, Tue May 18, 2010

Caps long series of fitness-related Apple patents

A new Nike heart rate monitor -- the first compatible with Nike+iPod technology -- should launch on June 1st, says a spokesperson for the company. The representative adds that it may actually be in some American stores "slightly sooner," while Canadians will get the accessory before the end of June. Launches in other countries are scheduled only for sometime this summer.

Nike is otherwise staying quiet on the gear, noting that it will not talk about prices, device compatibility or even colors until closer to launch. The launch could be timed to coincide with an Apple announcement of a new iPhone, widely expected to happen at WWDC 2010, which begins June 7th. Apple has regularly submitted applications to the US Patent and Trademark Office depicting advanced fitness accessories and software, but until now Nike+iPod has been limited to tracking data like distance, timing and pacing.
