There are around 30 models of Nike running watches, not counting variations in colors and bands, so plan to spend some time making your decision. They are divided into two styles, Triax and Imara. Both styles have all the features a runner could want, and good looks as well.

Nike Running Watches: Triax

The most noticeable feature of the Triax collection is the unusual S shape. This watch is designed to curve around the wrist bone for a more comfortable fit, which is especially welcome to people who have smaller wrists. Triax watches range in price from around $50 to $370.

The Triax Elite HRM/SDM, the top of the line of Nike running watches, wirelessly connects to your PC or Mac, allowing you to download workout data and upload the next workout's plan. Digital transmission eliminates interference from other wireless devices. This watch comes with software to help you plan your workouts and a customizable view so you can display the data that is most important to you, whether that be lap time, heart rate, pace, or time.

The Imara is an uncluttered oval style designed specifically for women. The Imara HRM has a heart rate monitor which displays data either as beats per minute or as a percentage of the maximum heart rate you program in. It also has an audible alarm for when the zone is exceeded and a counter to show how many calories have been burned. Its data memory stores information from your last workout. Women athletes are finally being given what they need with Nike running watches.
