July 13, 2006: Apple releases its first activity tracker, the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, which combines a portable music player and a smart pedometer.

Running is a great form of exercise, regardless of your fitness level. Getting motivated to run is a different story. Some running apps are designed for run tracking, others offer training, or make exercise a game. Nike+ Run Club blends all three to get you started and keep you moving, from your first run to your thousandth mile, and beyond.
Nike+ Run Club has picked up a new Challenges feature that aims to keep you motivated.
Much like the Activity app on Apple Watch, Challenges gives you weekly and monthly goals and rewards you with achievements when you reach them. You can also see how you stack up against the global community of Run Club users.
