Nike+ FuelBand

Recently I received a direct message from NikeTown Seattle on Twitter. They said as one of their loyal followers, they wanted to hook me up with their new Nike+ FuelBand! Awesome!

From Nike.com website:

Nike+ FuelBand tracks your activity through a sports-tested accelerometer, then translates every move into NikeFuel. Nike+ FuelBand tracks running, walking, dancing, basketball – and dozens of everyday activities. So put in on and get moving.

It is pretty easy to use. There is one button on the FuelBand and it will scroll through each of the different areas each time it is pressed – Fuel (NikeFuel points), Cals (Calories), Steps, and Time. The FuelBand easier transfers the statistics through the USB charging dock (included!) or through bluetooth to iPhone and then updates your information on the Nike site.

You set daily goals and see if you can meet or excede them! I picked it up two days ago and have been wearing it every day since! Definitely a fun and very informative gadget to wear. I never realized how many steps taken, calories burned, and miles I’ve walked each day!

  1. Fun! I’ve seen a few of these around work lately. The similar item I’ve used is Fitbit, which I also loved because it doesn’t have to go on the wrist. Enjoy and I look forward to hearing more!
