Nike Amp+ bracelet remote for iPod revealed

image

The Men’s Health 2007 Tech Guide has revealed another new Nike product made just for iPods. The Nike Amp+ is a wrist strap for runners that integrates a wireless remote for controlling an iPod and the Nike+iPod Sport Kit. The magazine prices the Nike Amp+ at $80; no release date is given.

“Playlist miscues can ruin a run. That’s the impetus behind this wrist-mounted Bluetooth remote, which lets you brows through songs on your iPod or check your run times without fumbling with the player,” writes Men’s Health. “It syncs up with the Nike+iPod running system via a 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.” [via TUAW]

does this mean that it only works with the nano?

Bluetooth? The Nike+iPod receiver (or is it a transceiver?) uses a proprietary form of 802.11, I thought. It would be cool if they had been planning this from the start and it works with the current Sport Kit.

As a married but childless male skilled laborer in a technical field (aged 25-30), I am deeply conscious of both style and health.  I may utilize my sizable disposable income to purchase this accessory.

this may be the first clue for a bluetooth nano, or a new nike+ kit

if you read the article closely, it says it controls the ipod through the ipod sports kit, which works only with the ipod nano…

Gosh!!!  Just write something like “i’ll get it cause it is stylish and cool”.

Ummm, my nano is ALREADY on my wrist in a Marware Sportsuit Relay, and protected from sweat by a plastic shield - so why would I need a remote control on that very same wrist?  Seems like overkill and overpriced.
