The Nike+ SportWatch GPS is definitely worth a look if you're after a watch to monitor your running. It's easy to use, comfortable to wear and the Nike+ service is a great way to keep track of your run data. However, more advanced users may...

The Nike+ Sportwatch GPS is one of those things you think you can do without, but once you try one you then realise it actually fits right in. As a watch, its oversized case, super wide strap with wild colours (mine is black with a vivid yellow) might...

The Nike+ SportsWatch is a neat and highly practical sports training watch that helps you with your training regime by telling you how far and how fast you’ve run. Sure, it’s not the cheapest on the market but we’ve found it to be one...

Since 2003, I’ve tried several fitness accessories that use the GPS system to tell you how far and how fast you’re running. I’ve generally liked them, except for the fact that they don’t work well in big cities.Many runners I...

The Nike+ SportWatch is an excellent running companion. Nike and TomTom have clearly thought long and hard about the user experience and have pulled the whole thing off pretty well. It's not perfect, as several features still need improving, but we...

We really like the Nike+ Sportswatch. It’s a stylish device that functions great and links up (and adds to) the data you might already be capturing with a Nike+ on your iPod or iPhone. It’s great to map your runs as well as just track them....

The big numbers and three-button interface let you check training data without breaking stride. Stuck on the treadmill? The included foot pod (not pictured) works indoors and is almost as accurate as the GPS. It all means you can focus on running. Yet...

If you already have an iPhone, the SportWatch might seem like overkill. But for serious athletes (and anyone who doesn’t already have a Nike+ device), this is one piece of tech that can take some of the pain out of your daily workout. Product GPS...

For runners looking to keep track of their workouts, the Nike+ SportWatch GPS offers a very attractive and simple solution, but it's on the pricier...

There are many different reasons why you might like a watch such as this. You may be a serious athlete, you may be training for your first marathon or you may simply be looking to keep fit. And so it is difficult to anticipate every feature that each...

Nike, in collaboration with GPS-maker TomTom, offers its first GPS device in the form of the $199 Nike+ SportWatch GPS. The watch is attractive, if somewhat bulky for small wrists, and is easy to use. Its feature set is somewhat limited compared to...

The Nike+ SportWatch GPS builds all of Nike's popular running software into a watch with TomTom GPS technology inside, allowing you to track and monitor your workouts from your wrist. But many runners will be better off with an iPod and a Nike+...

While I am aware that my body generally looks like poorly mixed pizza dough spread over a misshapen skeleton, I do like to get my runs in when I can. For years I’ve tried all sorts of sports watches, from GPS devices from Garmin that looked like...

The Nike+ SportWatch is a single-minded device that does what it does very well, but won’t get much use when it’s not collecting sweat....

When the Nike+ Sportswatch GPS was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas, it turned a lot of heads. The prospect of TomTom’s GPS smarts and Nike’s user friendly Nike+ fitness credentials coming together in a fitness...

Vi i Mobilen.no liker mobiltelefoner. Hvis ikke hadde vi funnet på noe annet å gjøre. Men noen ganger kan det være praktisk å slippe å drasse med deg mobiltelefonen når du skal ut og løpe, men likevel få...

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

La SportWatch est un excellent compagnon. Nike et Tomtom signent un produit qui montre leur maîtrise dans l'expérience utilisateur. La perfection n'est pas atteinte car il reste des détails à améliorer, mais nul doute...

Pulsklockor med inbyggd GPS, där du kan överföra dina jogging- eller cykelturer till en dator och få ut närmast oändliga mängder information om din träning är inget nytt påfund. Bland annat Polar och...
