Those lucky few who got the Nike+ Sports Band, give your comments!

Recommended Posts

I'm also interested in the band, but I think I'll wait for the problem to be resolved before getting it

Anyone having problems with the display of the nike+ sportband?

The first unit I had failed within two weeks of my getting it - moisture seeping in causing parts of the display to blank out. The replacement unit already showing signs of the same problem within days.

I had some trouble figuring out how to link my replacement display unit to my sensor too. Apparently you need to hold the toggle button (the side button, not the one on top) for 10 seconds to start this process.

Refer to the "Linking to More Than One Sensor" section on Page 20 of the Sportband manual (http://nikeplus.nike.com/nikeplus/manuals/sportband/en/Nike%20_sprtbnd.man_FNL_4.pdf)

No off-line software, you have to use nikeplus.com to see your run chart.

wait for Singnet problem to resolve first. Personally i have not even uploaded 1 run yet because of the problem and seems that there are many other problems which i don't feel like facing. :(

After the initial figuring out, I didn't have any more problem uploading. It fact it is a breeze. But than again, I am using Starhub. But is it really a Singtel problem? Find it hard to understand why things like that can be affected by the ISP. Did anybody check the firewall settings on the comp?

Overall, my assessment of it is - if you want a cheap and effective method of monitoring distance, this is sufficient. It is pretty accurate even straight out of the box.

tekko, i;ve been using my sister's pc to uppload my runs and it is really a breeze. before you can blink your eyes, they are uploaded already. She is using Starhub la. I am a singnet user and I still can't upload my run using my own pc.

In case you missed it, there was a review of the Nike Sportband in Today. (you can read it online here)

It gives a good overview of the Sportband's features, but skims over its negative points.

My main grouse has been the display - I'm on to my third USB display unit as the first two have failed due to moisture seeping in. Also, display is almost impossible to read while on the run - both at night & even in daylight.

I'm very impressed with the sensor unit, though. Small, light and quite accurate straight out of the box in my experience.

Ok, think I will get it once Singnet resolves the problem only

Luckily i didn't make a hasty decision yesterday...lol

hopefully they will even update a version 2 with improved backlight! haha

Edit: was too eager and bought it today. Of coz, face the same prob as all singnet users. but at least i can see the mileage i clocked after each run. maybe will manually track via an excel spreadsheet first. max can store how many runs ar in the band? can manually delete anot once full?

Yup, i agree with you. Sadly its not mentioned in the newspaper reviews. I am sure whoever wrote the reviews is either not a runner or not a singnet user. Mine is on my desk collecting dust.

    • As long as there is still no vaccine and cure. As long as new clusters can emerge and the infection won't stop. As long as there are waves expected after another one. As long as WHO did not declare we are Covid-19 free...  dear @Lady Ice, perhaps we put the all the research of the past, and the fear of the current pandemic aside, otherwise, off-topic discussions, because timeline could be months or even years away when healing takes place... uncle ends this here - last post, shared on thoughts on how Covid-19 actually impact races, yes, future races will definitely not be the same as what they use to be because of Covid-19..."sanatized" with social distancing with responsibility...wondered how that is going to be like? best wishes to all...here at this forum thread..  
    • BTW here is about sneezing... though sneezing is not part of covid19, people who might have it and inadvertently sneeze can spread it  
    • Yes - and think we cab begin to redefine how we want the New World order to be Here is a WHO guideline about Personal Protection etc for infectious diseases: https://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/331498/WHO-2019-nCoV-IPCPPE_use-2020.2-eng.pdf
    • It’s natural to compare the two outbreaks, keeping in mind just how severe the Spanish flu outbreak was.  While Covid-19 could get much worse, if we fail to adequately adopt measures like social distancing, aggressive testing , and quarantining. It is all about social responsibility. Keep us updated on what and how UK handles Covid-19, which is a little different from SG. The role of govts are to care for their people, of course, mindful of how Covid-19 has impact the economy. Here in SG is GDP. When going running, have been taking a 10m distance from people. We don't have issues here, except now we must maintain group of 10 and below, and social distancing at 1m till mid-April Perhaps, we focus on future races with social distancing, how would that impact races - announcement to register (with transparency with if there a Refund in the event of postponement and cancellation for any reason), rpc venue, reporting to pen, is it going to be more wave starts, race routes must cater for social distancing, finishing at ending, "Move on" maintaing social distancing, exit from race site, keep 10 or 50 or 250 always...  Definitely, uncle will skip any race this year for reasons that Covid-19 is not free, and understanding pandemic operates in waves, up and down, no idea how many more after the 1st wave - 3 weeks from now. Will there be 2nd or 3rd wave..only the medical experts from WHO can advise us, with the govt implementing advisory and enforcement of rules and laws for non-compliance. Keep strong and "active" running program...whether 7m or 12m or 20m in home or outdoor. The world will not be the same after this pandemic. 😷
