Nike, Apple Unveil iPod Running Gear
Submitted by Rickshaw :: Tue May 23, 2006 5:52 pm
With iPod headphones dangling from seemingly every runner's ears these days, it was only a matter of time before Apple teamed up with an athletic gear company to make a specifically runner-focused product. Today Apple and Nike announced a jointly developed wireless system to enable certain Nike shoes with an embedded speed/distance sensor to communicate with Apple's iPod Nano music player. Data on running time, distance, pace and calories burned would be stored on the iPod, which could then display the information on-screen or deliver it audibly through headphones. Celebrity athlete Lance Armstrong assisted with the product launch announcement, predicting "it will take working out to a whole other level." The Nike+iPod Sport Kit is expected to be available in two months at a price of $29, while the first compatible Nike shoes will be the $100 Nike+ Air Zoom Moire.
