Nike+ Fuelband gives iPhone users 24-hour workout and exercise data

Nike has announced the Nike+ Fuelband which gives iPhone users in-depth information on their daily physical activity. With development assistance from the likes of Lance Armstrong, Kevin Durant and Carmelita Jeter, the Nike+ Fuelband is able to keep track of your daily physical goals using a built-in accelerometer. The user sets a daily goal in the morning, and Fuelband tracks time, steps, burned calories and more.

One aspect I like about Fuelband is the ability to gain points from more activity based on a social metric after syncing with your iPhone.

The Nike+ Fuelband will be available for $150 and pre-orders are now being taken online, however Nike hasn't disclosed an official release date.

Is this not the same as what Jawbone have just released? Umm..... seriously though, I think the Nike one will do better because they're a known fitness company, whereas everyone knows Jawbone for their Bluetooth headsets.

It's very similar to Jawbone UP ... Although I think Jawbone was also interested in sleep rhythms and other resting metrics. Unfortunately, Jawbone has had terrible production problems and all UP orders were cancelled. (I had wanted one for Christmas, but no luck.)

I had gotten an UP when they first came out. Returned it within 4 days of getting it. You're better off having not gotten it.

Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I have truly enjoyed browsing your weblog posts. In any case I will be subscribing in your feed and I hope you write once more soon!
