Ladies and Gents- the new GPS watch has been ordered
It officially goes on sale tomorrow at nikestore.com. Because I am in the “know” I got to order mine a day early. I am a little sketch on buying something when it’s new because there is a good chance that all of the kinks haven’t been worked out. Ehh- if it’s not working or something goes haywire Nike will take care of it. Or at least they better!
Here are the details from the website:
The Nike+ SportWatch GPS powered by TomTom®: Never Run Alone Again
Think Less, Run Better
Put on your Nike+ SportWatch GPS, go outside and run. The Nike+ Sensor is optional. Tap the screen to mark laps and activate the backlight during your run, and personalize the data that you want to see during your run. For direct connect, USB contacts are built into the watch strap—just plug the watch directly into a USB port on your computer to upload run data and recharge the battery.
Using GPS by TomTom with the Nike+ Sensor, you can start tracking your run instantly, and get accurate speed and distance information, indoors or out—even if the GPS signal gets interrupted. The Nike+ SportWatch GPS by TomTom tracks your time, distance, pace, heart rate and calories burned. It also shows your mapped route, with pace data, and changes in elevation on Nikeplus.com. And it’s heart-rate monitor compatible with the Polar Wearlink+ Transmitter.
You’ll Never Slack Again
View your Nike+ history (up to 50 runs) and PRs, and set automatic Run Reminders when a run hasn’t been logged in the past five days. Run a personal best, receive an Attaboy. You can also find new routes, set personal goals and access training programs on Nikeplus.com.

Hey Nic- do you know if this watch is water/sweat proof? My biggest issue with my 405 is the bezel doesn’t function right when it is wet.
Hiya! I do not believe it’s waterproof so I don’t think this is a good option for a triathlete.
Sweat proof? It better be or there will be a butt ton of returns in the next 30 days! I think a concern could be rain- if it gets wet will it cause the touch screen to not function? Hmmm…glad I dont live in a place where it rains alot and if I do I usually have my watch covered under a light rain coat.
this looks so nice and slick! My garmin is chunky as heck. I wonder what features Garmin has that this doesn’t, that I might potentially miss…
