Innovations:

Nike and Apple have teamed up to design a certain shoe that will track people's cardio work outs. The Nike shoe will have a small chip under the sole of the shoe. This chip will store all the information such as, distance traveled, calories burned, and elapsed time. This is done because there is a receiver that connects to the ipod which allows you to either upload on your computer or while working out you can view your ipod or listen to the information that is being recorded.

Nike+ FuelBand
