Hello Can anyone help, I've got a NIke GPS watch , fine as it is but When running my MInutes per mile seem greater than it is, I used Endomondo this morning with the watch also, and Endo read 8.32 mpm while Nike read 9.07 mpm, does anyone have problems like this? Any advice? W thomas

Hi Wyn. I used Nike as well. I had a bit of trouble to begin with but when I calibrated it a couple of times via the Nike site it seemed fine. Nike are also very good at resolving problems when you contact them via email or twitter. Hope it helps

Hello fool runnings

Thank you for your message , how did you Calibrated it? i had to rest the watch on Monday! I agree with you about Nike they've given me a further 7 days, and I can return the watch if I'm not happy. But don't really want to return.

There's a calibrate section on the tool bar that pops up when you connect to your pc. It's best if you run a route you know the exact length of then calibrate it to that when you go to sync. I found a bit of info about it on the Nike website. Good luck with it.

Nike may give you the opportunity to have it replaced. My watch broke and was just in warranty so they replaced it.


It takes about 2 weeks but worth it.


Good Luck

Fool Runnings - think you may be confusing the Nike Sportband (uses the foot sensor in the shoes) with the Nike Sportwatch (which uses GPS).

Wyn Thomas - I have the GPS one and it seems pretty accurate to me. Only thing I can think is that it supports both GPS and the Footpod and in one of the menus you can switch each on/off. It could be that you have GPS switched off and the footpod switched on (in which case you would need to calibrate as Fool Runnings says).

Only other thing I can think of is that when I connect to the PC it almost always downloads updates to the GPS settings. Maybe connect to the PC, see if it updates them and maybe this could solve it ?
