Running. For some it’s a hobby, for some it’s a sport, for some it’s exercise, and for most it’s just a pain in the ass! However, if you are one of the select few like myself who engage in this torturous activity on a consistant basis you might want to consider Nike+.
The interface of the application itself (after its brand new update) is pretty cool, and the same goes for a great deal of Nike shoes in general. Being able to make a running shoe look good isn’t an easy task, but I think Nike has dug their feet in and begun to try.
Once you get past the looks and the flash you hit a very ugly core. The shoes don’t have much utility and are mediocre at best, with their lightest shoe offering no support and their more conventional shoe being awful support for your back and legs. Even ignoring all of that the app is disappointing, unnecessary, and over all a plain annoyance.
It’s nice to get your speed, time, accuracy, and distance, but with it being wrong more often than right I would recommend a pedometer and doing the rest of the math yourself.
