I wore it every day, to track my fuel points, which is the system Nike built to measure activity.
Alf
So I called customer support and they were very quick to tell me I could exchange or return the band as the message was bad news and they couldn't troubleshoot it.

Been through two of these so far, after 6 months the first one stopped working, now the new one stopped after 4 months.

First off, there are alot of bad reviews for this product from people who received broken ones, and while that's unfortunate and really poor business on Nike's part, those reviews really shouldn't be counted against this device's product rating. I, however, was lucky enough to receive a working one.

If you want my review summed up in one sentence here it is: This thing is absolutely fantastic for the non-fitness nut who wants to improve their health with exercise.

So here's why I say that.. First off, if you run, bike, swim multiple miles a day, or play on a high school sports team, you're not gonna need this. You get loads of exercise and all this thing is gonna do is tell you you exercise a real lot. Yes, it will allow you to set even higher goals for yourself, but when you're at that level you probably have other reliable ways of tracking your progress.

But if you're only hitting the gym a few times a week, or are getting even less exercise than that, as I am, this simple thing can provide you with some surprisingly useful tools, and you'll get more than your moneys worth out of it. I, for example, am recovering from Cancer. I used to run every day, but after cancer and multiple cases of pneumonia due to a suppresseed immune system, i'm lucky to stand up for more than 2 minutes, and that will leave me gasping for air. I have a physical therapist who comes to see me, and parents and doctors who encourage me and remind me to keep moving, along with my own desire to get better and return to my former athletic prowess. Exercise, for me, is often a very brief activity, like getting up and going down a flight of stairs.

With the fuelband, I can see an actual number to gauge how active I'm being during the day, and at the end of the day.

Verified Purchase
Great idea, low profile system with a nice display, simple to use, custom-fit, hooks into mobile devices. Here's my two cents.

Quality of Construction:
I bought a Fuel Band in May. I wore it for about 3 months. I wore it every day, to track my fuel points, which is the system Nike built to measure activity.

The Fuelband fit well. There were problems with the interface, and I had to reset it after a week because the firmware update didn't work right, it wouldn't connect, so I lost all that data. I talked to a service rep and got it fixed. Then I synced it to my iPad and it worked for about 3 weeks, I tracked my workouts, and then the sync stopped working, and it asked me to go to the Nike website and update my account. I did that, and it started working again, until today, and now it appears to have finally given up, just telling me to plug it in over and over, sometimes with a firmware update, sometimes not.

Then there's the LEDs that display everything. They started to burn out after the first month, line by line. I'm down to about 75% of the lines working at this point. Its unreadable now. I was pretty gentle with the thing, so I don't know why they are burning out.

So the quality of my $200 band withstood 3 months of moderate use, and was maintenance heavy throughout that period, and now it is pretty much useless and I'm looking for a new watch. I've done 3 factory resets, the past two haven't done anything and its just giving me the "Error returned from Nike+" when I plug it in to the computer, and the display is giving me the "plug me in to the computer" symbol.

I have been wearing my fuelband since early January (three months). I like the idea that I'm more conscious of my activity, but here are some things I've noticed:

The fuelband registers fuel points for activities where there is a slight vibration involved... snowblowing your driveway, or driving four hours to Minneapolis (worth 2,000 points). Apparently the accelerometer is not very discerning
The bluetooth connection and iPhone interface is clumsy and unreliable. It takes forever to get connected and takes a long time to update. There are an annoying number of trophies and Nike marketing propaganda to boot. One week I ended up with two Wednesdays... go figure.
Last week I got a Fitbit Flex free through my employer. Just to compare the two devices, I wore the fitbit on my other wrist and have now had the opportunity to compare them for several days. Here's what I've seen... The Fitbit tracks perfectly with my steps (good interface, I can see it live). Turns out the Nike Fuelband is consistently recording about 30% less steps than the Fitbit. The Fitbit counts all calories burned (sedentary + activity), whereas the Nike counts only activity. The Fitbit tracks sleep, the Nike doesn't. The Fitbit allows me to log my swimming time and calories... Nike doesn't.

In short, the Nike Fuelband is an overpriced device, with less functionality than the Fitbit. It doesn't accurately track activity... giving points where it shouldn't, and undercounting when it should. The interface is clumsy and unreliable. It is a thinly veiled, full-time Nike marketing device on your wrist. It does not have capability to track activities other than running and walking... and even then it can't get it right!

Nike Fuelband is a big disappointment. Absolutely not living up to my expectation of the Nike brand. Sorry I wasted the money.
