World’s Most Dynamic New Watch

The Collaboration between Nike and TomTom has created Nike+ Sports Watch, which is powered by GPS provided by Tom Tom. The great new watch gives athletes the chance to enjoy the best motivational and dynamic running experience anywhere in the world. This is due to the watch being beautifully designed and with unique functions. It also connects directly to www.nikeplus.com This is the leading community of runners in the world with nearly 4m members.

The Nike+ Sports Watch has been designed to deliver a high performance, and the easy to read and user friendly interface delivers all the information an athlete could need while running. It can also be personalised to improve self-motivation. These include audio features, run reminders and challenges. The watches are now available both online in store for £179.
The Vice President of Nike digital sport, Stefan Olander, is understandably enthusiastic about the  Nike+ Sports Watch. He said that the watch was an item which would ‘change the game’ and it shows Nike’s continuing commitment to provide runners with the tools to motivate them to improvement.

Corinne Vigreux, M.D of Tom Tom consumer is equally enthusiastic. She said that moving into the fast growing sport and fitness market is part of Tom Tom’s long term strategy. She added that combining the strengths of two major companies could only result in quality products being delivered to athletes. It is certainly a different route for Tom Tom to take, who was regarded as the leading provider of navigational products in the world.
