Samsung in Partnership with Nike have announced the Nike+ Running App for the newly announced Tizen Samsung Gear S, which fully utilises its Bluetooth, 3G and GPS connectivity features to bring Nike’s running experience to your wrist.
“We are very excited to welcome the Nike+ Running App to Samsung’s Gear portfolio,” said Chan Woo Park, Vice President of Product Strategy Team in Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung Gear S with its ergonomically fit design, empowered by multi-sensors, GPS and IP67, is a perfect health and fitness companion. With the Nike+ Running App, it will be even more attractive and fun for users to enjoy their running, while tracking runs, reaching goals and sharing with friends, all on their wrist.”
The Nike+ App will come preloaded on the Samsung Gear S, and lets you map runs and track your progress without having to drag your Smartphone along. You can view running metrics including distance, pace, heart rate, NikeFuel earned, and time, by simply raising their wrists.
The app also has a built in music player, which allows you to select your play lists with a simple tap. You can also use the Samsung Gear S' 3G data connection to deliver real-time cheers from Facebook friends.
