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.

    • Ah yes, Terry Fox!  He was quite famous after the first running boom (sometime in the 70s to early 80s) I even saw a TV movie about him when I was in grade school (OMG, My age is showing 😵 LOL) And to think he was an amputee! 
    • I’m usually self supported when I do my solo LSDs, so I can manage up to a marathon’s distance (ultras will need at least some form of support however, at least for me) . I can’t replenish at any public faucet like you guys do over there, but there are stores everywhere.  I can also lug at least 2L in my hydration vest if I’m in the mood to shout:  “THIS... IS… SPARTAAAAA!” 😜 😜 😜 but I haven’t been that motivated lately. At least not since this pandemic broke out.  Nothing beats the convenience of having a route clear of cars, and hydration at least every 5km (IAAF rules) in an actual organized race though, but these just won’t be possible for the time being so we’ll just have to be patient. I look forward to the day when they find a vaccine to this plague… and we’ll all be partying, cheering and giving high fives after crossing the finish line once more. 😊
    • Incredible feat! The other person I know of running a marathon every day for a cause was Terry Fox.
    • I’m sharing this interesting story of a Korean monk doing a 5,200 km charity ultra run from LA to New York City, running 50km each day. He was forced to halt it in the meantime because of the pandemic: https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/culture/2020/06/141_290579.html    What struck me most was that where he expected prejudice, he found only kindness, and that the ones who had the least to give... actually gave the most: “I received heartwarming care from those in poverty” I guess it’s really true that what you sow, so shall you reap. I'd like to read more about this guy and his story when he continues his run. 👍
    • Thank you for sharing the hints, totally agreed. So I need to make a good plan on the routing. 😊👍   Yea, in a race of last year, the experience of a lot of runners has proved that... 💪🤣
