The Nike+ SportWatch GPS offers you a new running experience. The GPS receiver works in tandem with the shoe-based Nike+ Sensor to deliver highly accurate pace and distance data while in-run. Adds personalization and motivational features to the running experience, including audible sounds, challenges, run reminders and more. Connects directly via your PC or Mac to www.nikeplus.com. Water resistant up to five ATM (50 meters).
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.
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.
I've used it in Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, India. I'm pretty sure the GPS covers anywhere in the world you might be.

The Nike + SportWatch GPS uses the TomTom GPS system, which should cover Australia & Hong Kong. I will leave the vendor link for you so you may get more specific map information. https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/shop/m...
It appears as if an update is needed for the Nike + SportWatch GPS that will add a stopwatch mode.
Firmware Update This update is for the firmware that runs on the Nike+ SportWatch GPSpowered by TomTom and is required for all users. It includes the following: Adds stopwatch mode. Improves tap sensitivity for manual laps. Adds alarm capability. Adds the option to adjust the time of day or date on the watch without using Nike+ Connect. Adds the option to display either speed or pace. Adds support for inverting the screen to display black text on a white background. Adds support for choosing any favorite metric when in auto or manual laps mode. Adds an auto looping option for the upper metric.
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.
