Why: This may be one of the best things you ever buy your guy (V-day gift – hint, hint). Trust me. He will love you forever as you tap into one of the coolest new gadgets that is revolutionizing the fitness world. Apple and Nike have come together to make working out an entirely new experience. Here is what you need – the new Apple Nano 3.0 edition (it is square with a video window) and the Nike and iPod Sport Kit. The Nike Sport Kit comes with 2 pieces – one piece is a receiver that connects to the Nano and the second piece is a sensor that you put on your shoe. After a very easy setup, your man will be ready to roll.
While you run, the sensor in your shoe is able to calibrate your running time, distance, pace, and calories burned. It then transmits that information to the receiver attached to your ipod and stores all of the information. When you get home, you plug your ipod into your computer and all of your detailed information is transferred to www.Nikeplus.com – an incredible website that becomes your fitness hub. At Nikeplus.com you can challenge friends or complete strangers to see who can run more miles over any amount of time you wish. This gift will keep your man healthy and make the experience incredibly fun.
Special Note: It's recommended to purchase a cheap shoe pouch to hold sensor – or better yet- you can buy him a custom Nike Shoe that has a space for the sensor built in!
Bonus: The Nikeplus website allows you to download songs that include inspirational coaching mixes that tell you when you should walk, jog, or run as fast as you can. Some of the current coaches include Lance Armstrong and Serena Williams. You can also choose a 'powersong' that allows you to play your most motivational workout song like 'Eye of the Tiger' with just the push of one button.
