LIFE IS A SPORT
A wristband that tracks your every movement? — and tries to convince you to maybe add a little more movement to your life as well.
The FuelBand tracks time, calories, and steps, as well as NikeFuel, which is essentially points earned for being active. You set an activity goal, and as your NikeFuel points add up, LED lights on the wristband glow to show how close you are to your goal. Everything gets uploaded through Bluetooth or USB to the Nike+ website, where you can track your progress and history.
Users set a goal in Fuel points and then try to engage themselves in enough activity (of any kind) to reach the goal. A sedentary day shows red lights and increasing activity lights up toward green as the Fuel counter approaches 100%.
The device is as connected as one may expect: there’s an accompanying iOS app that can communicate with the wristband via Bluetooth, and there are also social network hooks to boast goals met on Facebook or Twitter. On the Web or on their phones, users can see their performance graphed out with visuals borrowed from the existing Nike+ product for runners.
Charging also shouldn’t become a chore as the two lithium polymer batteries embedded in the band allows four days of use between charges.

personally, i am obsessed with my NIKE FUEL BAND
i find myself checking it regularly throughout the day
to see what workouts rack up the most points,
what classes that i teach that take the msot energy out of me,
and if/when i will reach my goal each day
