How to Calibrate Nikes´╗┐

The Nike+ SportBand is a device that monitors the distance, pace, length and calories burned by the wearer while she is walking or running Nike Free Run. This device can be strapped around the ankle or inserted inside a specially designed pouch included in some Nike shoes. Although the Nike+ SportBand is 90 percent accurate, serious runners may want to further improve the precision of the device by calibrating it so that the results reflect the wearer's natural running and walking strides.Other People Are ReadingHow to Calibrate Nike With the iPhone 4How to Calibrate the Nike+ SportBandThings You'll NeedNike+ SportBandNike+ Utility SoftwarePC with a USB portInternet ConnectionShow MoreInstructions 1Open your Web browser and navigate to the Nike Plus "Downloads" page.
