Whether or not you love running or loathe it, Nike has released a new product to make the experience a little more worthwhile. The footwear company has released an updated version of the Nike+ SportBand. Like it’s predecessor, the SportBand records the number of calories burned, the distance covered as well as the pace via a transmitter placed in a Nike+ Shoe or tied to the shoestrings of a regular running shoe.
Some notable improvements are the enhanced display for easier reading and enhanced water-resistance through a welded seal. The biggest improvement has to be the fact that now running fanatics can keep track of their progress sans the bulky armband that used to house your iPod. It’s as simple as strapping on the SportBand and start running. The streamlined wristband is lightweight and also doubles as a watch.
