The whole Nike+ ecosystem is huge, you have the Fuel band, the SportWatch, the SportBand, the iOS app, and of course the iPod Nano integration. But Nike wants to make it even bigger, and to do so has released an API as part of the Nike+ Accelerator project.
The Nike+ Accelerator will host 10 companies in a bid to tie Nike+ in with more other companies and services. By opening a developer portal, and releasing (an admittedly limited) API, this is the first step in devs attempting to get on board with the Accelerator.
Here’s how Nike describes the API:
The portal provides tools and resources that enable developers to explore the Nike+ API using the developer’s own profile and activity data, including NikeFuel, running pace and distance, running routes, records, streaks and more.
Hopefully, this will mean that in the future, your favorite fitness apps will be able to tap into raw data from the Nike+ line of products.
