Nike Amp+

November 28th, 2006

Looks good, just the bluetooth thing bothers me a little … my iPod nano doesn’t have bluetooth. So running is all about wireless these days … your wireless heart rate monitor, your wireless Nike+ kit and your wireless Nike+ remote …
There’s some more background at Ars Technica.

Playlist miscues can ruin a run. That’s the impetus behind this wrist-mounted Bluetooth remote, which lets you browse through songs on your iPod or check your run times without fumbling with the player. It syncs up with the Nike+iPod running system via Bluetooth wireless connection, displaying information on an illuminated LED readout hidden beneath the matte-finish face of the bracelet. Just stash your iPod in your pocket – no more fiddling with the sweat-slicked dial.
