Heard the new Sportsband may also include HRM function. :Thinking:

So will definitely be worth it for 1-2-1 exchange. :Nerd:

Does this mean that the new version of the sport band is going to cost the same? maybe they will launch it just before the nike human race this year to encourage people to buy the sportsband!

Nike Debuts New Nike+ SportBand

Get running! Nike gives you extra incentive to hit the road with an enhanced Nike+ SportBand. The device is worn like a watch and shows you your distance, pace, running time, and calories burned with just a glance. It does this by receiving information from a sensor inside Nike+ running shoes. I've always liked the SportBand since it doesn't rely on GPS data and can work on treadmills as well as the open road.

The enhanced Nike+ SportBand offers a new screen with a white background to enhance visibility. It also offers an improved watertight seal, so a little rain won't ruin your run. It now comes in a range of colors (gray with pink interior, dark gray with yellow interior, and black with red interior).

Runners with an iPod Nano, iPod Touch, or iPhone will be able to hear their running details as they go. The SportBand will be available in the U.S. for $59.

In related news, Nike has merged the nikeplus.com site with nikerunning.com, to create a one-stop destination. The company also announced it would launch a new Nike+ iPhone site optimized for mobile use.

they will recommend that you get a nike+ enabled shoe for the better accuracy but if you are not wearing a nike+ shoe then you can get an external shoe pouch from marware or switch easy to attach the sensor to your running shoe. accuracy should be between 95-98% if i remember correctly.

hope that helps!

I went to Nike Flagship Store at Wisma Atria and there is a pamphlet introducing the news Sports Band. It said available on Sep 1. I guess they could launch it earlier but it seems that we will still have to wait a bit more!

Nike Human Race - radio silence... guess it won't happen this year leh... must say it was not very well organised last year - from the pick up of kit to the congestions with the route...

    • Was looking forward to the actual run as I've never participated in this event before. Completed the 21km virtual run yesterday. Initially thought was only given 2 weeks to upload result which would be unfairly difficult given the short notice if one has not been running regularly. Fortunately, I've been running 21km every weekend since March. First time did 2x 21km within 4 days. Thankfully my Plantar Fasciitis is still holding up.
    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done ūüĎć ¬† Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong,¬†can apply.¬† ¬† I scare scare, should I call?¬†
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...
    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
    • I‚Äôm not a local, so I didn‚Äôt know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover ¬†19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
