Fitness Monitoring : Upcoming Nike Sensor Shoes

Incorporating the same shared fitness data ideas as the Fuelband.


Near the end of the latest episode of This Week in Google (video below, about 1h15m in), Jeff Jarvis discusses the recently released Nike Fuelband and some of the upcoming Nike footwear products. These shoes* will incorporate the same shared fitness data ideas as the Fuelband, or something like the FitBit.

Will be very interesting to see how products like this are used (by athletes of all types, professional and amateur) over the next few years.

* We'll certainly be testing these shoes once they become available. In the meantime, there's a great summary of the shoes' stated capabilities over at All Things D.
