Nike+ Fuelband Review

In my 2013 Resolutions post I told you about my new toy that is helping me keep motivated in getting my sweat on every day – today I wanted to share with you what it was!

For Christmas, Santa surprised me with the Nike+ FuelBand – I have been using it everyday for about a week now & I am happy to say I really love it.

Here is the breakdown of my Nike+ FuelBand – This bad boy tracks my daily activity, which is referred to as my Fuel. It knows my height & weight as well as what arm I wear it on. The band’s LED display lights up from red to green showing my progress throughout the day, so I can see how far I have to go to my daily goal.

 It tracks my calories.

How many steps I take each day.

And can also be worn as a watch because it tells the time of day.

It comes with an extender, if needed – I got the small size & it fits my wrist perfectly.

For size reference – it’s about the same size as  my Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor

Everyday I set a goal for a certain number of Fuel I want to hit, it tracks my progress throughout the day to keep me motivated & let me know how far I am from my daily goal.

Another great feature that I love is that there is an app for my iPhone that easily syncs with the Fuelband over bluetooth. streak

It’s cool to see when I am more & less active throughout the day – the one extra thing the app tells me is how many miles I walk throughout the day, it pairs my walking around on a daily basis with my workouts, which I think is pretty cool.

The app also tracks my activity by week..

By month..

And by year..

There is also a fun little character that throws me a little party every time I hit my goals, which I really enjoy. I need to think of a name for this little guy.

So there you have it. My new little toy, fitness tracker & motivation all in one. I really like it – its easy to wear all day, I forget its even there & I love all that it tracks for me.

      HI Fara – The Nike+ tracks more than the FT7 – I use the FT7 specifically for the gym & wear the Nike+ throughout the day. Let me know if you have any other questions!
