Boosts performance with GPS tracking
Nike has introduced its new Nike+ SportsWatch GPS at CES 2011. It leverages the shoe-based Nike+ sensor to track time, pace, distance, calories burned and heart rate. Using Tom Tom navigation technology, the SportsWatch GPS will track what a user does, how they do it, and then motivates the user to improve on previous performances over the each route.
The watch connects to a user's PC via a built-in, but retractable USB dongle in order to allow users to upload their data to NikePlus.com to view completed runs, set new goals and interact with other runners. It has already taken home two awards from the CES for innovation in the Health and Wellness and Personal Electronics categories.
Information on how to pre-order the device has been posted on the Nike website.
