Though Nike scored big with its excellent Nike + iPod Sport Kit, its dreary Nike+ Armband for the iPod nano begged for alternatives. Now Marware has delivered a better one for the same general price: Sportsuit Relay is a combination of a wrist- or arm-mounted iPod nano (aluminum) case and one of the company's previously announced Sportsuit Sensor+ pouches, allowing you to use the Sport Kit with any pair of shoes. You place your nano and the Nike + iPod Sport Kit attachment in the case, wrap the case around your wrist (or with the optional Velcro attachment on your arm), and place your shoe-mounted Sensor inside the Sensor+ pouch. The pouch uses Velcro to wrap around any shoelaces and provide accurate tracking of your motion - note that the sensor is shown upside down here for illustration purposes only.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
