Nike updates Nike+ Sport Armband


In line with complaints iLounge voiced in its review of the original version, Nike has quietly released an updated Nike+ Sport Armband for iPod nano featuring a clear window for the screen. Like the original, the updated version remains large enough to house both an iPod nano and a Nike+iPod Sport Kit receiver, and is still made from Nike Pro Compression fabric. The Nike+ Sport Armband is available now for $29.

About time they updated this.  I bought the original before reading the review and the arm band is seriously unusable.

If you have the old armband and would like to see the screen, you can carefully cut a window out with an Xacto knife.  That’s what I did for mine.  Works great and the fabric doesn’t seem to try to unravel.

Why haven’t they come out with a transmitter that works with 5G ipods?  I run with my 30gig ipod and would love to be able to use Nike +.

What about Canada? I don’t get why they can’t realease these things worldwide at or near the same time?

I don’t think they’ll ever release Nike+ for 5G iPods. Apple don’t want to be seen to be advocating that people run with a sensitive hard disk drive strapped to their arm. A few too many jolts and just imagine the huge surge in warranty claims!
