Nike Amp+ watch wants to make you Rocky

Training strap provides performance feedback as well as controls for the iPod.

Nike

Someone over at Nike's product design team must be a fan of the crazy watch site Tokyoflash, because the new "Nike Amp+ Sport Remote Control" looks as if it could have come directly from the Japanese retailer's catalog. At least Nike's product goes beyond just the usual indecipherable flashing LED lights , providing "instant voice feedback of a runner's time, distance, calories, and pace" when used with Nike+ Ready shoes and the Nike+ iPod Sport Kit , according to Electronista.

It controls the music, of course, and has a dedicated button that plays the "power song" you've chosen for your exercise theme. But please, no more Eye of the Tiger .
