Nike+ SportBand review
Runners are usually a placid bunch, but a seemingly harmless question has recently split them into fiercely opposing camps Ė with music, or without?
Those who use MP3 players claim they canít run without tunes to move their feet. But running purists reckon using earphones inhibits your balance and many marathons have even banned them. Which is why, having catered for music lovers with the Nike+iPod kit, Nike has now released the SportBand.
The SportBand is effectively the Nike+iPod system without music. For £40 you get a watch thatís smaller but similar in style to the Amp+, and a sensor, which you slot into your Nike+ shoes (or any trainers if you cheat with a SwitchEasy Runaway).
