As of 4.30.18, we are retiring the Nike+ FuelBand, Nike+ SportWatch, and additional older technologies. Find out what this means for your NikePlus data and download the NRC and NTC apps to continue to track your progress.
If you use the SportWatch GPS to record treadmill workouts, your watch will use the Nike+ Running Sensor rather than GPS satellites to collect pace and distance data.
In order to get the best results from your Nike+ Running Sensor, you'll need to record a calibration workout outdoors before using your SportWatch GPS indoors. An outdoor calibration workout allows your SportWatch GPS to use GPS data, which is highly accurate, to fine-tune the sensor for stand-alone use indoors.
Here's how to record a calibration workout on your SportWatch GPS:
Note: You will not see a specific indication that calibration has occurred. Calibration occurs invisibly and automatically when an eligible calibration run is recorded.
After you've calibrated, you'll want to toggle "Shoe Pod" to the "on" position and "GPS" to the "off" position whenever you run indoors on the treadmill.
