Make it Count with Nike+ Fuelband

Nike+ Fuelband 1

I’m not normally one to go in for gadgets, not withstanding anything by Apple. And I prefer high touch to high tech. However, this Nike+ Fuelband, made to synchronize with the iPhone, caught my attention as something both stylish, practical and discreet.

The sleek wristband tracks your daily (or nightly) activities with an accelerometer and displays them with tiny LEDs. The USB port is seamlessly designed into the band or connect with Bluetooth. Walking, dancing, running and other indoor pursuits are readily converted to information you can use, like calorie count or endurance. And, when you’re not in performance mode, it doubles as a pretty cool watch. As with next season’s handbag or latest restaurant opening, you’ll have to get in line and pre-order through Nike. Retail price will run you $149.00

  1. MUST. HAVE. ONE. NOW.

    …even though I have no idea what I need it for, it looks beautiful. As long as it can tell time and maybe wake me up, I need it. Wait, I meant to say:

    NEED. IT.

    • If you’re not doing any activity at all during the day, perhaps you could wear it to sleep and see how many calories you burn in those restless nights of tossing and turning. It would also be a great conversation piece. Better yet, you could take on the challenge of setting some workout goals.
