Nike+ coach to partner iPhone?


According to, Nike is looking to partner its Nike+ software/hardware with Apple's iPhone. If true, this will mean that the software will be able to take advantage of the iPhone's built-in Wi-Fi capabilities and, if the 3G version of the iPod makes it to UK streets, that information would be updated in real-time and sent, wirelessly, to your PC or Mac instead of uploading it manually, as you have to do at the moment.


Currently, Nike+ asks you to place a small sensor into a specially made pocket, in the sole of your Nike shoe. You then connect the associated sensor to an iPod Nano. The sensor then uses an accelerometer to measure your activity, then wirelessly transfers this data to the receiver on your iPod Nano.


You can track your time, distance, pace and calories burned. If you choose, real-time, spoken feedback can even alert you to milestones throughout your workout.
