TomTom and Nike unveiled today a new range of the Nike+ Sportwatch, coinciding with the launch of a brand new Nike+ website www.nikeplus.com. The range includes several editions and colour combinations, and introduces a starter product for those new to running.
Whether they own an original or new edition, all Nike+ Sportwatch users can now access Nike’s measure of athletic ability, NikeFuel. This converts a runner’s mileage into universal units that measure movements in a wide variety of different sports.
As a result, it’s easy for people to compare their performance against that of athletes in other sports, and share their achievements with friends.
