So the boyfriend woke me up this morning blabbering something about Nike and iPod.
“It’s time to buy the iPod nano! Now it can sync with your Nike shoes and tell you how many steps you take and all that. So cool!”
Or something like that (exclamations all his).
From the press release: “With the Nike+ footwear connected to iPod nano through the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, information on time, distance, calories burned and pace is stored on iPod and displayed on the screen; real-time audible feedback also is provided through headphones. The kit includes an in-shoe sensor and a receiver that attaches to iPod. A new Nike Sport Music section on the iTunes Music Store and a new nikeplus.com personal service site help maximize the Nike+iPod experience.”
Two of my favourite brands joining hands to produce something as kickass as this, there really is no reason for me not to start running. And maybe it is time for us to adopt an iPod nano. Soon.
The Nike+iPod Sport Kit is expected to be available within 60 days for a suggested retail price of US$29. Everybody say ayyye! Let’s hope this thing reaches us before the Shape Run.
