The 7th generation iPod nano can be used with the Nike+ Running Sensor (using Bluetooth capabilities) or without (using the iPod nano's built-in accelerometer). Here's how to get started with each method.
Generation 7 iPod nano with Nike+ Running Sensor
Generation 7 iPod nano does not need the Nike + iPod receiver to link with the sensor. It requires only the Nike+ Running Sensor.

Note: If you have previously linked a Nike+ Running Sensor, before you begin you will need to switch the Sensor button to the "off" position. To do so, please tap the Fitness icon on your home screen, tap the "i" icon in the lower right-hand corner to access Fitness Settings, tap "Nike + iPod Sport Kit Sensor," and toggle the Sensor button to the "off" position.
The 6th generation iPod nano can be used with the Nike + iPod Sport Kit (using the Nike+ Running Sensor and the Nike + iPod receiver) or without (using the iPod nano's built-in accelerometer). Here's how to get started with each method.
