No problems Leyton,
The best option would definately be Nike+ shoes, but I cannot get on with Nike shoes unfortunately. (Maybe keep the tape idea as an emergency option in case the holder gives you any trouble)
Ive been using wristband for several months with no problems.
It was a fiddle to get the nike+ downloaded but I think most of it was down to my error(especially when I hadn't put the usb part into the computer the right way!)
Accuracy is similar to mapmyrun so im happy with that.
I've had my nike+ band for a few weeks now and love it, I like others think mine is not accurate totally but am happy to go along with it for now.
I love the utilities it offers and especially the kilometer splits etc which helps me sort out my pacing for my upcoming 10k.
I have just recently bought an IPHONE and noticed the Nike+ app can anyone tell me what this does and if it is good value?????
Save your pennys and get a decent Garmin and be done with it.........................................................
Been using once since October 2009 and not had a single problem with it.
Really like the nikeplus.com site as well.
I've also had my Sportband for a number of months with no problems...
The calibration is almost spot-on too - in fact, matches up almost exact to MapMyRun and that Nike map thing.
The only real trouble I've had (which I've also experienced with a Garmin so rules out the 'the more you pay, the better it is' debate) is that if the USB chip gets sweat/grime/rain on it, you sometimes have to wipe it a few times before it uploads properly - not exactly a hassle considering it's £35 though is it?
