Love Nike but this product is questionable
on March 18, 2013
This product was purchased for me from Nike directly and while I was excited to receive it on Christmas day (2012), I was extremely disheartened that the accelerameter went bad before having the fuelband for 3 months. The accelerameter is a part inside the band that tracks your movement. I might add that the fuelband is not as accurate in my experience as the much less expensive pedometer. If you are not moving your arms, it is not accurately counting your movement. So for instance, if you are on the treadmill on a steep incline and holding on to the bars, it is not calculating your steps...that's just one example. Also, I just had to have the white ice color and within days it discolors to a dismal grey color. When I tried to return the product to Nike for the replacement since it was not calculating my movement any longer, I asked for a replacement in black ice and they declined, despite the two bands being the same price...go figure! The warranty on the band is better than you would expect at 1 year, so I still await my replacement...let's see how long this one will work...I am not encouraged!
