iphone/nike running stuff

Postby fjacky » Mon Sep 03, 2012 3:59 pm

Have an iphone....been using the Nike Running app for quite some time. Just wondering what accessories you can get that will work with the app and phone.

Anyone have suggestions? Heart rate monitor...other sensors?

I use the Nike running app along with my Garmin FR60 which has a heart rate monitor and foot pod.

The foot pod a bit redundant but easier to quickly check my pace on my wrist rather than pulling the entire phone out. Plus the Garmin works with my bike aswell.

I used to use the shoe sensor but i found it flaky. Wouldn't sync, no way to tell the battery life, wouldn't give accurate readings and it's just plain expensive to have to replace on a regular basis.

I tried the foot sensor but couldn't get it to work. Also wasn't a fan of lugging the phone on runs. Ended up getting one of the Nike+ running watches. Absolutely love it.
