how do you know the distance you run?

No, you don't have to have Nike trainers (Nike+, specifically) to use the bands. You just need to be able to attach the sensor to your shoe, which can be done with a little pouch that sits on the lace, or stuff it in the tongue label if you can.

I am just looking into getting one, the sportsband are £30 on Amazon and the pouch for the sensor is about £2.50.  Its either that or I spend abit more and get the Garmin Forerunner 205 for around £80

@Intermanaut - The Garmin is defo looking more favourable, I keep thinking if I spend £30 on the Nike its £30 towards the Garmin

If you're looking at upping the spend to the Garmin for the extra £12 or so you may as well go for the 305 and get the HRM as well.

Being able to train in specific heart rate zones (or in my case see how far off cardiac failure I am) is very useful and is definitely worth the extra spend.

Have you tried ebay at all for deals on Garmins?

Still don't get the point of training to a heart rate. I train to pace because I know whether I'm on target for the time I want. If the HR programme tells me to lower my heart rate, that means slowing down. Screw that. If I want to finish in a given time, and that means that the engine has to work harder, so be it.
