Nike launches rival to Adidas runners app

September 8, 2010

Sportswear manufacturer Nike has launched an application called Nike+ GPS to rival the launch of the Adidas Mi-Coach app, which was released last month.

Nike’s new product is labelled as the first “Runners App” and is engineered to operate between GPS and an accelerometoer for an accurate, motivating and entertaining runner’s tool.

The new app allow runners to visually map every run while tracking pace, distance, time and calories burned. It also includes instant feedback during and after each run, from athletes including Paula Radcliffe and Lance Armstrong

Nike+ GPS is available now in the Aple iTunes App store for US$2 and requires an iPhone or iPod touch.
