RealClear Summary


The Nike+FuelBand is a fitness tracker that allows you to measure your daily activity and goad yourself -- through the shaming power of data -- into being more active. The waterproof bracelet tracks your steps and syncs to a smartphone via Bluetooth to deliver data to the Nike+ app. Through the app you can set goals, compete with friends and get a clearer view of your daily activity.

The $149 FuelBand sports a small LED screen that can display settings as well, if you're moving too fast to stare into your phone.

The Nike+FuelBand was mostly well-received by reviewers, but most everyone advised serious atheletes and runners to look elsewhere, as the FuelBand seems designed to motivate the unmotivated.
