The manufacturer's warranty would still be valid for the watch even when bought elsewhere. You would have to follow the specific instructions sent along with the Nike + SportWatch GPS to activate. And it would be wise to save the receipt we provide just in case the manufacturer would need it.

Yes, the transmitter is needed for the Nike + SportWatch GPS watch to get the heart rate functionality. It is now sku #92043571 - POLAR WEARLNK NIKE+ TRNSMTR-BK that is needed.

Not necessarily. The sensor unit is the device which is put inside the recessed cavity of a Nike + ready shoe, and is used to track time, pace, distance and calories burned. So the GPS and the Heart rate function could still be used, but you will not be able to download the other information if the sensor is not used. There might be cheaper options for you out there if you don't really care to have all of this data downloaded.

The Nike + SportWatch GPS watch uses the TomTom GPS tracking, which does cover New Zealand. However, some regions may not have coverage due to desolate areas, so it would be best to contact the vendor to give specific locations so they can tell you whether that region is up & running so to speak.

The men's Nike + SportWatch GPS watch uses the TomTom GPS system which does work in Australia. I would recommend checking out the technical specs on the vendor's website to see the regions the watch will cover tho. Australia is a big place and all regions may not be mapped out yet for GPS tracking.

Question

With this watch do you need to be wearing an insert into a nike shoe to track your pace, distance and time when running or do you just wear the watch?

I haven't got any nike runners so I was wondering if I needed a pair with the 'nike piece (oval shaped device)' in the shoe for the watch to track my pace, time and distance as I run? Or can I wear any shoes that I would like and just wear the Nike + Sportwatch GPS (tom tom) watch to track my pace, time and distance? I hope this makes sense.

Yes, it seems you will need a Nike + ready shoe to hold the shoe-based Nike+ sensor needed in order to incorporate all of the data into the watch.
