Computer Business Apple Teams Up with Nike to Offer New Sports Kit

Computer business Apple recently announced a partnership with Nike and its popular iPod. The computer business will offer a new Nike+iPod Sport Kit, a wireless system that enables Nike footwear to talk to the Nano model of the iPod.

The new kit requires a Nike brand shoe and an iPod nano with Mac and a USB 2/0 and Mac OS X version 10.3.9 or later along with iTunes 6.0.5. The product can also be used with a Windows PC with a USB 2.0 port and Windows 2000, XP Home or Professional and iTunes 6.0.5.

The first model of Nike shoes that will work with the computer business’ iPod is the Air Zoom Moire. The new system provides information for runners on time, distance, calories burned and pace that is stored on the iPod once the shoes and the device are connected and displayed on the screen. The device also provides real-time audio feedback through headphones. The kit comes complete with an in-shoe sensor and receiver that attaches to the iPod. Computer business Apple is set to add a new Nike Sport Music section to the iTunes music store and a new personal service site for customer support. Nike will also release a series of apparel designed to accompany this new offering.

The Sport Kit will be on the market within two months and available for the price of $29 through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores, certain resellers and Nike stores.
