I have the first gen Nike Plus watch and am trying to pair it with my iPhone 3gs. Does the first gen watch definitely work with the 3gs? I get to the pairing screen and try pushing all of the buttons on the watch, but it's not connecting. I just put a fresh battery in the watch.

    1) Turn off your iphone 3gs and then back on.
    2) Pull the sensor from your shoe and set it on the table next to the iphone.
    3) Go to settings/nike+/sensor
    4) Press the small button on the sensor 5 or 7 quick times to wake the sensor.
    5) Set the sensor on the table and tap (sort of hard) in a consistent rhythm.
    6) When the sensor is recognized, click done.

    Go to Nike+ iPod -> Settings, and then press pause/play button on your Nike Amp watch. Now, if you look back at your iphone screen, the "Remote" option should now appear under the "Link" option.

    Matty,

    I have the very same problem with my Watchremote (n.b to the other posters, this is NOT the same as the Amp)

    No solution seems to work -- removing the battery, cycling the iPhone, unpairing...

    Ive got the very same Problem, i have tried to pair it with
    ipodtouch 2G
    ipodtouch 2G (late 2009)
    Iphone 3GS

    non of them could be linked from nike+ to the watchremote (latest edition).

    Im dissapointed, but perhaps its a problem from nike manufactor.

    NIke + Sensor for the shoes works perfectly .

    Greetings

    The problem could be the sensor. It may not support dual synchronization. You are trying to use the 3G(S), Nike+ Watch and the sensor. Nike probably did not add dual synchronization to the sensor in which case you only have one of two you can have running. Either the iPhone or the Nike+ watch.

    Try shutting off the Nike+ on your watch and use the iPhone and see if that works. In which case proves that it is not dual sync compatible like Bluetooth.

    just want to say, my problem is now solved

    the battery was to empty to link the device, after changing battery it works flawlessly. Anyway, im angry buying a new item with an empty battery….

    Cheers

    Nike and Apple definitely support syncing the iPhone with the sensor and the watch. It is the watch's entire reason for existing. There is a preference in the app for linking the watch to the iPhone as well as linking the sensor.

    No, I had a watch remote and sensor and the two worked perfectly with my iPhone 3GS for about 6 months.

    Now the watch doesn't work, and when I try to link the remote the iPhone can't find it. I suspect one of 2 things:

    1) Either the latest iPhone update somehow killed the watch remote, or

    2) I need a new battery for the watch remote ( which I hadn't suspected this because the visual display on the watch remote still works – I can see the time and signals associated with pressing different buttons clearly – but perhaps those are 'low power' uses and the power to send a signal to my iPhone has conked out).

    I'll get a battery as soon as I can and let you all know if it works.
