This product is made for you serious athletes! If you’re working your butt off and can’t keep track of all of your daily activity than this product is crucial.
The NIKE+ FuelBand is a smart wristband that counts your physical activity in a proprietary form of points called Nike Fuel.
One review describes this product saying:
It measures activity in steps or calories. The updated device adds the Fuel counter as well as a series of colored LEDs that measure the day’s physical activity level. Users set a goal in Fuel points and then try to engage themselves in enough activity (of any kind) to reach the goal. A sedentary day shows red lights and increasing activity lights up toward green as the Fuel counter approaches 100%.
The NIKE+ FuelBand is a constant reminder to reach your daily goal! Every move you make is tracked and made into NIKE Fuel!
Its simplistic, light-weight design will not get in the way of you getting your sweat on. Aside from the button that scrolls through calories, steps, and the time, there are no other ports or extras. One end of the FuelBand is actually a USB connector, so you can undo the clasp to connect it to a computer and sync your data.
While this product may seem like the key to pushing yourself to do more, there is a downside.
There’s no way to measure distance for specific runs, so it isn’t useful for athletes or people who train regularly. At $149, it’s also pricey for what it does.
Is this product worth it?
Do you sometimes forget to log you activity or are too busy to log? Do you work out every day or most days? Is it important to you to know the calories you’re burning and the number of steps you’re taking? Are you a fan of NIKE products? Are you willing to spend the money on this product?
This pricey product is able to tell you what you are unsure about in your workouts.
You be the judge, after all you know your body better than anyone else.
The key to doing more, is knowing more. Life is a sport, make it count!
