You don't have to be some kind of super athlete or super geek to use the Nike + iPod. In fact, it is made so it is easy to use and it does really enhance your workout plus you look really cool. What's it like? Well, a super soothing and nice female voice, who is like your own little personal coach, will tell you when you have accomplished 10 minutes or that you only have 1 more mile to go. Your music will just fade up and down but will not stop, and you don't have to do anything but keep moving. This is a great gift for any exercise enthusiast.
