    I am actually considering it, cause I run routes through San Francisco streets and have been getting more paranoid when crossing streets with my music on. Not to mention using an armband with my Nano is fairly annoying. Anyone thinking of (or already have) the Nike+ bracelet?

    Nah. I would like to be able to run without my nano, but my fundamental gripe with the nike+ system is that it's just not very accurate. At the end of the day, I don't trust its pace data as far as I can throw it, so although I find it fun to participate in the MR challenges, I'm not going to throw another $60 at flawed technology. When I prefer to run without music (which is more than half the time), I just put my ipod on my waistband and don't wear headphones.

    What I want is this. :D

    Hell no, 60 bucks is a bit ridiculous.

    As for accuracy, you can't really expect it to be perfect, but if you calibrate it often enough it does a decent job.

    i would love one of those as well, i just really can't justify the cost.

    but i am going to get the nike+ sportsband. most of my runs, i run with the ipod and not headphones, so this is perfect for me. spending $60 is one thing, but $300 is totally another

    Thats my position as well. As for running with the iPod and no headphones, do you just hit "Start" and off you go? There's no hidden things you need to do to get it to register is there?

    on the ipod? after you select the music, and you've "walked around to activate your sensor", you just press the center button to start the workout, and off you go.
