Good news everyone :)

I bought a Nike sensor a long time ago, with the promise that I would start running/walking more often and be able to track my progress. Turns out I didn't use it and when I finally decide to give it a try the sensor was dead already. :(

Not willing to buy a new one ($20.00) value I decide to search for options.

This instructables offers my take on replacing the battery of the Nike sensor.

Step 1: Disassemble the Sensor

The way I did was using a X-acto knife to open the sensor, be careful not to cut yourself, this is a task that takes time and patience. Since I didnt take pictures during this part of the process I am using someone's else pictures.
<p>Hi <a href="https://www.instructables.com/member/pcapelo" rel="nofollow">pcapelo</a> .. man your work-around is pure genius .. I had a couple of these units in my drawer .. how I can give them a new life!!!</p>
hot glue... I love it! where does the sensor go? can't be the bottom of your shoe right?
:) <br>no, it will go to a little pouch that I am also making. <br>I still have to cover the sensor with shrink tube, to make sure everything will be in place and then in the pouch. <br> <br>I will have more info about the pouch, as a &quot;bonus round&quot;, here, as soon I have it done. <br> <br>thank you again
