Have any of you tried the Nike Sportband? I’ve been tracking my runs using Runningmap.com and it’s worked out well to give me an approximation of my kilometres except that I want to know precisely what my kilometres are as well as my pace (which I’m pretty good at approximating too) and elevation so that I can start tracking my runs in terms of distance and not time spent. I also need something with a stopwatch function. The Nike Sportband retails here in Canada for $79 but were going on another US shopping trip soon and it’s $59 over there. Or I can get a Garmin 110 for $199 like a reader suggested to me. I think I’m also being swayed by the nice sleek packaging and pretty colors. And also the fact that it’s pretty simple, all you have to do is plug the USB portion into your computer and it uploads your workout without the need to have an iPod (my iTouch is too old for the Nike+). I know eventually I’m going to want the Garmin but for now, can I make do with the Nike sportband? If you have one of these doohickeys please let me know if your happy with it.
