Nike+ SportWatch GPS

Recommended Posts

Thanks Jerry. I did research on the Internet on this watch. There is even a facebook page on its problems. Moreover, DC Rainmaker's review was not good. Decided to go for the FR210 myself last month.

You've made the right choice. Regardless, the Nike+ Sportwatch is inferior compared to the Garmin Forerunner series.

Is anyone facing problem signing in using iPhone Nike+ GPS?

I kept getting "Connection Error. Connection Timed Out. Please try again later"

It was fine just a few days back during SCMS.

Frustrating!

Been using for almost 2 months. Tried a couple of other apps, yet i still return back to nike. Maybe it can have an add-on heart rate monitor in the app. Than it will be awesome.

Comex is selling the Nike Gps watch. I dont think its worth it la. you can choose up to 3 colours, with or without footpad. cost is about $237 if I remember correctly. No heart rate function. just purely gps function. After comex and if you wish to get it, you may get it at Funan. I dont know the shop name but it sells tomtom products. haha

Having used the Nike+ sports band for more than 3 years and loving the simplicity, then one fine day, not sure what happened, backside itchy, I bought the Nike+ GPS watch.

And after more than 10 runs with it, I can now say I love the watch. It's equally simple to use (compared to the sports band), and I actually start looking for different routes to run, and that in turn adds fun to the running. The Nike+ website is still a pain when it refuses to let me login, but when it does, it is fun to see the achievements and retrace your steps on the map. I'm definitely having more fun with my runs right now... in fact, I'm writing this in Guangzhou where I just did a 8km this morning for which the GPS locked on and function flawlessly.

I'm a happy camper.

I was one of the first to get the Nike GPS Sportwatch when it was launched in the US back in April 2011. Loved the simplicity, and it does look sleek eventhough a bit oversized. The Nike+ portal is interesting, which you can join virtual competitions with other runners or create one among your friends. The Sportwatch was working like wonder until one day, it decided to stop synching my running data into my PC in September 2011. It can still be charged via the USB, but just cannot connect to my PC at all.

Tried connecting it to different PCs, reinstalling the software, updating the patch, hard reset, soft reset, you name it, i did it. But the result was just the same. That was when i started to look into various forums and found out that i was not alone, and it was a chronic failure in many Nike+ GPS sportwatch worldwide. Nike could not solve the problem at all and can only replace 1-to-1 to most affected users. I had no choice but to send my Sportwatch back to the US for my warranty exchange, and had to wait 1-month to get my replacement.

The replacement watch worked fine, but had the same problem after 1 month!!! That was when i had enough of the Sportwatch and was forced to switch to a Garmin that is less sexy, less exciting but more functional. I hope that Nike has already solved this chronic failure after a year, else they will just get more of their fans switching to other GPS watches just because they are more reliable.

However, i just found a page on Facebook which most users suffering from the defects above are still airing their grievances. Seems that this problem is still not really solved:

    • Ok - so am old lah ūüėõ¬†- been¬† on this forum for far too long...
    • Saga 1: The SA's internal carding system - which allocates athletes up to $1,200 per month based on various criteria - had expired month without the necessary follow-up. (info:¬†https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/officials-say-track-body-must-sort-out-disputes) ¬† Saga 2: Against paying Singapore Athletics share of award money¬† (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/football/soh-against-paying-sa-share-of-award) ¬† Summary: Soh (did not take part), Michelle Sng (did not win a Gold Medal), and¬†Shanti Veronica Pereira ( Collected 2 Bronzes), the 2 Sagas will not affect Shanti Veronica Pereira because she can stay on¬†with the $1,200 monthly allowance, happily with her Coach, and she gets her 2-Bronze Award for her Performance (and surely gladly give 20% to SA). SA will be delighted with the 2-year Excellence Peak Performance Program till 2021. The greatest loser in the Sagas is Soh because he will not have both - $1,200 monthly allowance, and already based on his PB, he could have collect a Gold¬†Medal from 2019¬†SEA Games with an Award of $10,000. Even if he will be unwilling to share with the 20% to SA. SA only loss "$2,000" but save $1,200 monthly allowance for Soh for the next 2 years (savings of $28,800). SA -+$28,600 vs Soh -$10,000 - $28,800 (2020-2021) As for Michelle, she already said she wants to retire in 2017, but the surprise Gold Medal on that year makes her a defending Champion. Pain, Injury and Tears - for every jump. Plus she has reached beyond 30, and to be family-focused should be her entitlement in life. High Jump has given her a sporting life and to announce her honourable retirement from the call of Nation. It will be expected. SA - which has been controversial from the core. Change the whole SA? How many times have SA changed? Life as Usual. No change is better then to Change. Whatever. Marathon has been a Gold Medal for SEA Games. We will surely make a comeback. Without SA, marathoning is the only key spark in Athletics that even without¬†$1,200 monthly allowance, Mok and Soh can be regional champions. So you know what Mok's Saga with SA, "Uncle, you say¬†lah, the $1,200 monthly allowance, don't have money how to go overseas for marathon qualification mark closer to SEA Games, use personal paylah!" Now, everyone knows what is SAga is about right? "Money Not Enough, how to run overseas Marathon races." "What I win, is all Mine not yours, SA."¬† "SA :¬† gain $28,600 vs Soh¬†minus $10,000 minus¬†$28,800 (2020-2021)" "Ashley Liew demands S$120,000 in damages from teammate Soh over ‚Äėfalse‚Äô claims about sportsmanship act still outstanding."¬†¬† Uncle wishes Soh Gets Lots of Money for¬†the year of the Metal Rat (2020).¬†¬† ¬†
    • The shorter answer may be there are many IAAF races but only 7 WMM (at the moment). So its a combination of scarcity and prestige.¬† And one more thing. STPB no more P liao. STPB was established in 1964. Nowadays it just¬†STB¬†(since 1997!)
    • Why WMM over IAAF? Think you'll find that is down to how WMM markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. Especially with medal chasers. Look at who is in this exclusive club....2 major financial hubs, and with Brexit - perhaps Berlin is set to be a financial hub. Assume being part of the WMM will also come with a fee.¬†So between IAAF and WMM, the STPB would find WMM more attractive and this would give Singapore special recognition in their want¬†to progress with greater sporting achievements.¬†Joseph Schooling's Olympic win, allows more to dream big.
    • Uncle salutes to Michelle Sng for her best effort for the Nation with this interview¬†of her painful and also exiting moments when she took up High Jump for Woman because of her passion of "why not?" (info:¬†https://mothership.sg/2018/01/michelle-sng/) A prodigy (she says she is not), a performance High Jumper (she says is unexpected), "no pain no gain" and with tears - she had to go through as her journey -¬†making¬†a come-back, an unwilling Champion (humbly just do my best), and she did it for the Nation because there was no representative for the sports she loved and she has¬†passion about it because she participated as a school-girl - just for the sure fun of it. Thank you, Michelle. You are always the most inspired High Jumper (Gold) and aptly the high jump mama...a respect and inspiration for all here. We wish you the best in everything your heart desire.¬† What's next - SA: a SA-ga-ble NSA.
