justrunning, I have used the Nike+ app with great success outdoors. Never used it on a treadmill. Outdoors, I find it is pretty precise -- I used to run the same 5K route every day, and knew the quarter-mile marks by heart, and the Nike+ app always got me within a few feet of them. That said, it can be wonky for very short distances -- every now and then it will give me something crazy for a quarter-mile split -- but it seems to even out over several miles. I probably wouldn't consider it accurate for distances under one mile, but as you start to do longer runs, it will be more reliable. I definitely would not trust it on the treadmill.
Thanks for answering according to the treadmill, I ran 2 miles and total distance with warm up and cool down was 2 1/2 miles. Maybe I'll save the app for after I 'graduate' and work up the nerve to run outside. I'm running again tomorrow so I may give it one more try on the treadmill and see what happens, because I'm stubborn
