* Look and feel:
I'm a fit guy, not skinny nor bulky, so I got the medium/large size. It came in the box with one link attached, but I removed it leaving no link. That way it fits really well. After a while you forget your are using the Fuelband because it's comfortable to use. I've read that Fitbit is more comfortable to wear and it seems that way, but I have no problem wearing the Fuelband all day long.
I got the Black/Volt one as I wanted it to match most of my fitness gear and it looks great. People at the office or in the neighbourhood ask me about it and it's good for starting a conversation. I wear it with gym clothes and even with formal/party clothes and I find it really nice to have.
* Ambient light sensor detects environmental light levels and adjusts accordingly:
That's actually true. The LEDs' light adjust according to the environment where you are using the Fuelband making it easier to read. There was that one time I wanted to watch the time under the midday full sun, and there was nothing the Fuelband could do. It was hard to read the time even when I used my other hand to make a shadow, but hey, it's not a Kindle (worship the best electronic reader! just my opinion) so I think it's OK. And it's not like you are going for a run at midday, al least not in warm/hot places. For the rest of the day or indoors I find the LEDs' light adjustment to be a piece of art.
Another reality. I take showers twice a day with the Fuelband on me and it's all fine. Just remember that water-resistant is not equal to water-proof, so don't go diving with it.Read more ›
1. Nike announced at their 10-15 press conference that this device would have sleep tracking features similar to the Fitbit. When the SE arrived, the downloadable instruction manual did not mention anything about sleep features. I called the Nike customer service people and they said it was a last second decision to remove the sleep tracking features. If you are wanting to track sleep patterns like the Fitbit does, this device has zero ways to track sleep.
2. The big new feature in this model was supposed to be increased internal technology to track all kinds of different exercises a person does. This would therefore give a more accurate gauge of the Nike Fuel expended with those exercises. So after work yesterday, I went off to the gym for an hour on the elliptical machine. I cranked the resistance and speed way up and my shirt was soaked in sweat after my hour was complete. My Fuelband SE said that workout was worth 211 Fuel points. To give you a comparison, that is similar to the fuel points a person could obtain by walking slowly on a treadmill for 15 minutes. I am a 6'2 200 lb man. 211 points? You have got to be kidding me. That workout was brutal and should have been 1000+ Fuel points if the device had worked correctly.Read more ›
- Looks good and feels comfortable
- Screen is great, very readable white digits, and the rainbow-colored LEDs are refreshing every time
- Very useful as a watch, best watch among the fitness trackers I have used
- Water resistant - I wore it in the shower without a problem
- Nike Fuel points are fun! I used to think steps are the way to go based on Fitbit, but I realize that there are different activity levels and points actually make a lot of sense
- iOS app is gorgeous
- Charges straight off a USB port, no cables or adaptors needed
- Battery lasts about a week
- Step tracking is not very precise - could be 20% off from Fitbit One which sits at the waist and is very accurate
- Nike disbanded the Fuel team and announced they are getting out of the trackers market = no future?
- No sleep tracking - the sleep sessions feature needs to be manually started and stopped and it is basically a stopwatch for time spent in bed, no analysis or tracking
- Sessions feature was not useful to me, besides the amusement of being able to create and name my own sessions
- Not really waterproof for swimming
- Cannot track anything else besides walking and running (although I suspect it does OK at running-based sports like basketball, tennis, etc)
- Plenty of negative reviews about poor reliability
I sold mine after a week or two of use because I had two more trackers already.Read more ›

It won't hold a charge and this seems to be a common theme for the Fuel band. Not surprised Nike stopped making them. Went out and bought a fitbit. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Douglas s. Kim
