Archived - Nike + iPod: About the sensor battery
The Nike + iPod Sensor's battery is not replaceable or rechargeable and has a life of over a thousand active hours. The sensor has a sophisticated built-in power-management system, allowing the sensor to consume power only when active (that is, when it senses motion).
When the sensor has approximately thirty hours of active use remaining, it will send a low-battery signal to your iPod nano, iPod touch, or iPhone 3GS, indicating that you should replace the sensor. Your iPod or iPhone will notify you of your sensor's low-battery status right before and after each workout you initiate.
The following are examples of low-battery indicators on some of the different generations of iPods and iPhone 3GS:
|iPod touch (2nd generation) and iPhone 3GS|
|Your iPod touch (2nd generation) and iPhone 3GS will alert you of the sensor's low battery when you launch the Nike + iPod application:|
|iPod nano (4th generation)|
|Before beginning your workout you will be notified to "Replace Sensor Soon":||During your workout, the sensor icon will also flash on and off:|
|iPod nano (3rd generation)|
|Before beginning your workout you will be notified to "Replace Sensor Soon":||When you end your workout, the End Workout screen will also notify you of the sensor's low-battery status:|
|iPod nano (2nd generation)|
|Your iPod nano (2nd generation) will notify you of a low sensor battery by alternately flashing the image of a battery and a shoe on your Now Running screen (see the image below) during your workout. You will also be notified at the bottom of your Workout Summary screen with the following text: "Sensor - Battery Low":|
If your Nike + iPod sensor needs replacement, you can visit an Apple Service Provider or Apple Store for a replacement kit.
