Set up Your Nike+ Device using Connect Instructions

The devices that require Nike+ Connect are Nike+ Sport Sensors (for Nike+ Basketball and Nike+ Training), Nike+ FuelBand, Nike+ SportWatch GPS, and Nike+ SportBand.
English is currently the only supported language for the Nike+ FuelBand, Nike+ SportWatch GPS, and Nike+ SportBand. You can change the language for the Nike+ Running App (iOS and Android) through your mobile device.
Now begin setup. Go to www.nikeplus.com/setup and choose your Nike+ system from Nike+ FuelBand, Nike+ Training and Nike+ Basketball. You can download the software directly from this webpage.
