Nike today updated their long-standing FuelBand app to offer integration with Apple's Health app and services. In the process, the FuelBand app also dropped what has long been a requirement for the app to function: the Nike FuelBand itself. Accordingly, the app is now just "Nike+ Fuel".
Users of the iPhone 5s and newer can now use the built-in constant motion tracking of the M-series co-processor to log their activity information in the form of NikeFuel points in both the FuelBand app and into Health.
The move to drop the requirement for the FuelBand isn't a huge surprise, given that the most recent FuelBand edition was announced back in October of 2013, followed by Nike closing their hardware development shop in April of last year.
Apart from Health integration and dropping the FuelBand tracker requirement, the FuelBand app also includes a new feed tracker that pulls in integrations with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Nike+ (and posts out to them) to create something of a meta social experience.
