Nike will be offering a "Nike+iPod Sport Kit", this kit connects running shoes with the digital audio player, not to playback music, but to store and display workout data.
The first product to be able to connect to the Ipod will be Nike's Air Zoom Moire, a higher-end running show that will retail for around $100. According to Nike, the model is equipped with numerous sensors that calculate various types of workout information such as time, distance, calories burned and pace. The information is transmitted wirelessly to an Ipod Nano, where it is stored and displayed. Alternatively, the device can also provide real-time audible feedback through the player's headphones.

After a workout, the Ipod can be connected to a computer system to synchronize and store workout data in a customized workout log on Nike's website. According to the company, the application allows users to track training goals, and review distance, time, pace and calories burned.
