GPS and the Nike+ sensor combine to give you accurate info -- indoors or out -- without the wait. Using the Nike+ sensor, you can start a run without having a GPS signal. Also, if you?re running outdoors in an urban canyon or tunnel where the GPS signal is obstructed, the Nike+ sensor kicks in for seamless data tracking.
