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...

    • Run for Heroes 2020 All it takes is for you to run, walk or dance a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude!Upon completion of your run, you will receive two wristbands - one for yourself and the other will be sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks from you as a tangible show of gratitude.Come join us from today until 8 August to show our support as one Singapore! (info - https://www.runforheroes.sg/)                  
    • Actually, one of the things I always look forward to in coming over for SCSM would be carboloading at some hawker stall. Once, after asking for a sixth order of rice, the uncle who owned the place just exclaimed  "哇!!!" (Waah!) 🤣 The only problem is that there always seems to be new construction constantly in Singapore. One place I ate at before was already closed with a new building being built over it the next time I came back, so its hard to have a favorite place to eat.
    • Now, what I'm going to say next may be a somewhat unpleasant topic among runners, but the reality is that among fellow athletes.... there are some who cheat. 🤔  Although this has been minimized now in modern races with timing mats/chips and vigilant marshalls on the course, in less sophisticated events, some dishonest runners take shortcuts, surreptitiously exchange bibs with a faster runner somewhere along the course (so their times come out better), and in one ultra, board their support vehicle when they think nobody is looking, then get off 10-20km later down the road! I don't know what goes on in the mind of those dishonest people who later claim their finisher shirts and medals just so they can brag on their social media accounts of something they did not rightfully accomplish. They are only fooling themselves. They may be actually very few in number, but if they are so thick skinned to be able to do that in a real race, how much more in a virtual one based on an honesty system? They may have  rode a bycycle, or used roller skates/ a skateboard for all we know! IMHO, that is why a medal/finisher shirt from an actual race will always command more respect and honor amongst us runners than that from a virtual one.    
    • I agree. Crossing the finish line at SCSM by analogy, would be like earning a diploma from NUS, while a virtual run on the other hand, would be like getting a certificate of some online course from some shady internet school. You may have truly done the coursework and gained the appropriate learning in both cases, but when you present your documents to a potential employer, the former will be solid proof of your accomplishment and hard work compared to the latter.  
    • I like this statement: We all look forward to a positive future and I believe that this is a great first step in that direction. Marathon is a sport whereby elite athletes and fun runners are actually racing in the same race. It's what makes our sport unique and I find the essence of this to be beautiful.
