New IPOD Nano syncs with shoes (Nike)...Anyone know about this?

 

I just heard about the new nano and its ability to sync with the nike shoe.  You can also buy a kit for $40 that you can attch to your shoe which enables the nano to get distance, pace, calories and fat burned.  This is all I know.

 

 

Anyone know more?  What about a hr monitor attachment?  It would be nice to have it all in one. Now I have the pedometer on my belt or shorts and then the hr monitor with watch too.  Ithen have the ipod .  Thats 3 devices!  Wouldn't it be nice to have them all together?!!

 

 

I'd love to hear more

    I have not used as of yet my sister has the nike+ shoes with sensor and the watch set up, but you can foregoe the watch and get the ipod attachment so that you can listen to your music while the sensor tracks miles pace cals etc and then when you sync your ipod it automatically uploads your run info to a nike running site that allows you to blog, post questions comments etc like here but then it also helps you set up goals and track those goals.  you can "race" against other people in the Nike community by tracking your info.  Nike will tell you that the sensor only works with their shoes that have the special "pocket" under the insole and it lasts 1000hr/ 3yr before you have to replace if used only for running, nut in my research I have found that best but sells the ipod set up and displayed next to it is a little pouch to hold the sensor that can be attached to any shoe. There is currently no hr monitor device to go with it.
