The USB plug of the SportWatch GPS, when plugged into a Mac or PC USB port, immediately launches the Nike+ Connect interface, allowing you to automatically store your runs on the system's online community (at www.nikeplus.com). The dot matrix LCD display of this watch is clear and readable. The user interface of the SportWatch GPS allows you to create personalization and motivational features. Motivational features include recognition of personal records, run reminders that appear after five days if a run has not been logged, and post-run acknowledgement. This interface, which is geared toward easy use, features only three buttons, and a Tap Screen for navigation. You can tap the screen to indicate a lap, or activate the backlight. During a run, the GPS receiver of this watch captures location information while showing runners their time, distance, pace, and calories burned. Throughout the run, the GPS receiver works in tandem with the shoe-based Nike+ Sensor (an optional add-on) to deliver accurate pace and distance data. The Nike+ SportWatch GPS is heart rate monitor compatible.
