Nike Fuelband Review: A Friendly Reminder to Stop Being Lazy [Fitmodo]

Friday, April 13th, 2012

A girl at a bar sees the futuristic and slim black cuff cradling my wrist, points at it and asks—well, more like demands to know—what is that? I look down, thinking I might’ve spilled beer on my sleeve, and see the Nike Fuelband. Oh. That thing. More »

The Nike+ FuelBand measures activity in NikeFuel, ready for your NikeLife

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

While Nike might have beat competitors like the MotoACTV and Jawbone Up to the active bracelet market over two years ago, its original endeavor, the Nike+ SportBand, was frankly getting a little long in the tooth. That changes today with the introduction of the far sleeker Nike+ FuelBand. It’s much in the vein of the original, except boasts a more attractive 20 LED dot matrix display and can measure activity in an additional unit the company calls NikeFuel. According to the company, that latter bit’s a normalized score that unlike calories “awards equal points for the same activity regardless of physical makeup.” We’ll have to see about that, but we’re definitively smitten with its design and that row of colorful LEDs that progressively fills as one gets closer to reaching their intended goal. The $149 pre-orders are live now on the company’s online store, but those interested ought to peep the PR and video after the break.

Girl, Apple’s gonna make you sweat with a treadmill patent

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011
Wednesday means we’re about to delve into Cupertino’s newest patents. Remember: just because there’s a patent, doesn’t mean it’ll be in your next iPad. Got it? Good. This week’s haul starts with a rather dry patent to correct bad motion sensing. Accelerometer-based devices are only as good as the data it collects, using a flat horizontal plane as a reference point — any incline and the whole show is ruined. Apple’s 3D patent can mathematically correct for gravitational movement along the “plane of motion.” The second’s about getting sweaty on sports equipment. Shove your iPod into a treadmill and it’ll record your vital statistics for uploading to a third party website for “mutual encouragement.” It wouldn’t be hard to imagine this working its way into something similar to Nike+, but it would be hard to imagine Nike insisting that Apple just do it.

Garmin launches Fit App, motivates you to lose that freshman fifteen

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Garmin, the company responsible for helping you navigate to the mall food court, is now hoping to help you work off those cheese fries with the introduction of its $.99 Fit App for Android and iPhone. The mobile app — which works a lot like the Nike+ — measures distance, time, calories and speed walked, run, cycled or traveled to capture your calorie burning journey. Connected users can also set goals, track their workouts and share results with others addicted to the burn. In addition to the app, Garmin is rolling out a $49.99 ANT+ adapter for iPhone, which monitors heart rate and cadence when paired with another optional sensor like a footpod. If you can’t muster up the energy to try it out right now, we’re sure you can at least head on past the break to check out the PR.

NBA Jam for iOS updated with local multiplayer support

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

When EA launched NBA Jam for the iPhone and iPod touch in February, there was one glaring omission: the ability to dunk on your friends. On Thursday EA fixed that by updating the game with local multiplayer, which means you’ll be able to take to the court and play against your buddies using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. If you use an iPad, there’s more good news – EA also launched NBA Jam HD for $9.99. NBA Jam has been a staple on our devices since its debut, and it’s been updated with the current NBA roster, too. Lace up those Nike’s and install the update.

Saturday, April 9th, 2011
It’s not all that difficult to peer at some gadgets without fully understanding the wizardry and magic that assists in driving them from concept to reality.

Nike+ SportWatch GPS now on sale, $199 adds geek cred to your workout routine

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Wrist-mounted iPod nano not quite the running companion of which you’d originally dreamed? This Nike+ SportsWatch GPS will be happy to take its place. We spotted the TomTom-branded fitness watch at CES this year, and now it’s formally on sale — though unfortunately for a price far steeper than those of its immediate ancestors. Of course, the $199 band isn’t just a replacement for the Nike+ iPod system, it also uses that onboard GPS to keep track of where you run, much like the Nike+ GPS app but without the necessity for an iPhone 4 bouncing around your person. Did we mention it’s also a watch?

[Thanks, John S.]
