Nike launches iPodless jogging accessory called Nike+Sportsband


It looks as if Nike is taking its while-running data systems solo, announcing a new product called Nike+ Sportsband.

Similar to the Nike+iPod product from last year, the Sportsband wraps around your wrist and acts as a wristwatch, but also reports the same data wirelessly as the Nike+iPod device, such as distance run, calories burned, etc.

It features a removable USB drive that stores the data and can be used with the Nike+Coach software to log your routines and make suggestions for improved performance.
