Metrics Plus Motivation Equals Progress

As the old adage proclaims: You can’t improve what you can’t measure. 

Thanks to the evolving global “smartwatch” market, runners now have access to all of their running data, along with a host of other features like text notifications, calendar updates, and weather status available at the quick glance of the wrist.

These watches deliver time, distance, pace and, more recently, heart rate, recovery advisors and race predictors. The intersection of these personal metrics allows runners to derive maximum insight with minimal distraction, an advantage akin to having a personal coach beside you. In recognition of this progress and the ongoing mission to connect Nike+ running with more runners, Nike and Garmin have partnered on an exclusive black-and-volt colorway of the Garmin Forerunner 235.

Beyond traditional smartwatch monitors, the Garmin Forerunner 235 watch has a desirable new form factor and innovative new features, including convenient wrist-based heart rate monitoring advantageous to runners of all levels. The watch syncs all of your running data to Nike+, supporting the ability to track with your preferred device and enabling participation in a global community of runners.

The Nike colorway of the Garmin Forerunner 235 is available on and at select Nike retailers across North America.
