The Nike Plus Sensor is a sensor designed to sync with your iPod -- including the iPod touch, nano and the iPhone. With the Nike Plus Sensor, you are able to track the distance of your workout, the time, pace and the number of calories burned. You can also view the distances you have run and listen to your iPod music while running. To start your Nike running program, you need to insert the Nike Plus Senor into your shoe.
