In an attempt to widen their product range Nike have launched a fitness related product called the FuelBand. This electronic wrist band lets users decide at the start of each day what level of NikeFuel they want to achieve. The FuelBand then displays how close you are to achieving your goal by way of displaying a series of 20 LEDs that gradually change from red to green as you near your fitness target. In particular, the Nike FuelBand uses accelerometry to record data about your daily exercise, which it can then relay to you in the form of time, steps, NikeFuel or calories, whichever you prefer. The band certainly has an eye-catching appeal and may even provide the motivation you need on a daily basis and you might want to also check out the rival product Motorola’s MOTOACTTV to see which suits you best.
