Wearable Activity Trackers: Nike + FuelBand

Nike + FuelBand

The Nike + FuelBand comes from one of the most respected names in fitness and sport equipment in the world so it’s not surprising that in this emerging market Nike would have one of the top products. The Nike + FuelBand has many of the same features of other wearable activity trackers but with a Nike + twist. Instead of just showing you how many steps you’ve taken or miles you walked or calories burned it also gives  you this information in it’s proprietary Nike Fuel Score. The fuel score is shown to you in a series of lights like a graph that allows you to see were you stand with a quick glance. The other thing that it has that many others don’t is a time mode making it double as a watch. The FuelBand looks like a thick version of the rubber wristbands you see so many people wearing these days with a single button for scrolling through the options Nike fuel score, calories, number of steps taken and the time. These are displayed through a series of white and colored LED lights that magically light up when you push the button. This is how Nike describes their product.

Nike+ FuelBand measures your everyday activity and turns it into NikeFuel. It tracks calories burned, steps taken and more. It’s also a great watch. Nike+ FuelBand tracks running, walking, dancing, basketball and dozens of everyday activities. So put it on and get moving.

The Nike+ FuelBand uses a sports-tested accelerometer to measure your movement in NikeFuel, a universal metric of activity.

Decide how active you want to be by setting a daily NikeFuel goal. Then, get moving and see your progress along the way.

No doubt the Nike + FuelBand is expensive but if it’s doubling as your watch that can take a little bit of the sting out of it’s $199.00 price tag.
