How to Change Your Weight on the Nike GPS Watch

When you initially configured your Nike + GPS watch, one of the questions that you were asked during setup required you to enter your weight. The watch then uses your weight as part of its’ formula for calculating the number of calories that you burned during your run. For people that pay close attention to their caloric intake and output, this is very valuable information. But if you set your weight a long time ago, then the value may no longer be correct, which might be resulting in incorrect calculations concerning the number of calories that you have burned. Fortunately it is easy to learn how to change your weight on the Nike GPS watch, which will help you to get the most accurate information regarding the number of calories that you burned on your run.


Adjust Nike GPS Watch Weight for Calories


As with most of the changes that you will need to make to your Nike watch’s display and settings (such as manually adjusting the time or date), you will need to connect your watch to your computer on which the Nike Connect software is installed. This requires the USB cable that you use whenever you upload a run from your watch to the Nike + website. With your watch, USB cable and computer in hand, you can proceed with changing the weight setting of your Nike GPS watch.


Step 1: Launch the Nike Connect software on your computer.

Step 2: Connect the USB jack on your watch to the USB cable, then connect the other end of the cable to a USB port on your computer. If you have any runs stored on your watch that have not yet been uploaded to the Nike + website, you will need to wait a minute or two until that information has been downloaded from the watch.

Step 3: Click the Settings button at the bottom of the window.
