Apple, Nike Exercise iPods to Track Workouts

Apple and Nike have unveiled an iPod gizmo to put more rhythm in your run: the Nike+iPod Sports Kit, the first product coming out of a new partnership between the companies. The wireless kit lets Nike's new Air Zoom Moire shoes send fitness data to your iPod Nano via a sensor you tuck inside the running shoe.

The wireless kit lets Nike's new Air Zoom Moire shoes send fitness data to your iPod Nano - via a sensor you tuck inside the running shoe and a small receiver that attaches to the Nano. As you run, the sensor records your distance, time, pace and calories burned in real time and displays data on the Nano. At the push of a button, audio feedback is delivered through Nano's earbuds.

The $29 kit will be available within 60 days at Apple stores and shops where Nike footwear is sold.

Of course, you'll have to spend at least $149 for the Nano and $100 for the shoes. Six other iPod-ready Nike shoe models are coming.
