Following the recent launch of Adidas’ (free) miCoach running app, Nike has launched Nike+ GPS as an iPhone app to help educate runners on their training and performance progress. The advantages of the mobile app over its precursor – Nike+ hardware – include utilization of GPS radio in compatible iDevices to track, plot and map your runs, utilizing the accelerometer in the iPhone to record your pace. For $1.99 (vs. $29 for the Nike+ chip), you can track your progress online, browse previous runs, and share it on the Nike+ site – and do much of this from the same hardware from which you’ll play your music playlist during your run.
