The only annoyance so far was having to wait till it finished charging before I could use it. You can see it parked in my laptops’ USB port. I was anxious to wear it right away! You have to admit, it’s pretty cool how the band plugs directly into the USB port!

So, what does the NikeFuel Band SE measure?
Here is the million dollar question, what exactly is Nike Fuel? According to Nike themselves, Nike Fuel is a universal way measuring activity. Nike says that it is “Uniquely designed to measure whole-body movement no matter your age, weight or gender, NikeFuel tracks your active life.” Ok, so that explains a bit what Nike Fuel is, but what I’m having a hard time grasping is that since its a new unit of measure, how to do I know what is a little or a lot? I guess I will find out once I’ve worn the band for a while.
The Nike Fuel Band wants to encourage everyone to do at least 5 minutes of activity every hour. So, when you have achieved 5 minutes in an hour, you “win” an hour, hence hours won! The first day I had 3 hours won! Today, I only got 2. I’m guessing I should work towards winning more hours!
I think that the price for this gadget is right on target. Any more and it wouldn’t be worth it! For counting calories and steps and tying in with an app, $99 is a fair price. If it were any more expensive, I would expect it to do much more!
So, on a last note, I would say that I am happy with my little techno gadget! I haven’t yet used it when I’m running. It does sync with the Nike Running App. I’m looking forward to seeing what the two will do together! I can only assume that I will have a more accurate calorie count? I’m curious to find out how the Nike Fuel Band actually calculates the stats! Maybe that’s for another post!
Do you have a Fuel Band? How much Nike Fuel do you record in a day? I’d like to find out to see where I compare!
