Anyone here using (or tried) this Nike+ Fuelband? http://nikeplus.nike.com/plus/products/fuelband http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2399096,00.asp Nike+ FuelBand Turns Life Into Exercise By Mark Hachman January 19, 2012 02:18pm EST Nike unveiled the Nike+ FuelBand on Thursday, a personal accelerometer that measures your activity in what Nike calls "Fuel," or your movements in three dimensions. Users will be able to preorder the FuelBand for $150 on the Nike online store at 5pm EST, Nike said. Using the tagline "Life is a sport," Nike's FuelBand basically takes the pedometer a leap farther; the company claims that the band can measure everything from breakdancing to basketball, with the exception of swimming. Each motion contributes to a running daily tally of the "fuel" you've consumed, which can be measured and tracked both on the band itself, on the PC, as well as a related smartphone app. The FuelBand seems relatively similar to the FitBit Ultra, which is a cheaper option at $100. The FuelBand can also be considered the next generation of the Nike+ SportBand, another wristband pedometer that Nike debuted in 2009. Nike claims that any aerobic movement—dancing, walking, skipping rope, boxing—is tracked using the three-dimensional accelerometer and converted into its own arbitrary "fuel" metric. (It's doubtful, however, that the band can measure resistance, or activity where the wrist is stationary, such as a pushup or bicycle riding. With the FitBit, such activities must be manually entered.) It's water-resistant, but not waterproof, so don't try swimming. The band itself contains two arrays of LED lights. The first, a horizontal strip, measures your progress against your daily goals. As you exercise more, more of the lights light up, turning from red to green as the goal is met. An array of white lights above it serves as a basic display screen, lighting up "steps," "cals" (calories) or "fuel"—all categories that the FuelBand tracks. Using the FuelBand starts on a PC. There, users can charge and connect the FuelBand, decide upon a daily goal, track and chart progress, and share accomplishments, including achievements for which Nike will provide rewards. An app pairs with a smartphone via Bluetooth for monitoring your progress on-the-go—but just iPhones using iOS 4 and 5; Android versions will arrive soon, Nike said. Each FuelBand should stay charged for four days, Nike claims. The wristband comes in three sizes, small (5.79 inches) to medium (6.77 inches) and large (7.76 inches) and weighs a maximum of 1.13 ounces at its largest size. It can also be adjusted with either an 8 mm or 16 mm "link" to modify the size further. Nike claims that the device is made of a combination of TPE (a thermoplastic rubber) and polypropelene.
