NEW YORK -- Get ready to cash in your sweaty old Nike "FuelBand" because you might not have been burning as many calories as you thought. Nike and Apple have reached a settlement that allows fitness band owners to receive partial refunds, according Gilardi & Co.
For the past two weeks I've been testing out two wearable fitness-tracking devices, the Nike FuelBand SE, and the Fitbit Force. Nike's FuelBand SE is a follow-up to last year's FuelBand. There aren't major overhauls to the FuelBand this year. It added more sensors for better accuracy, and Bluetooth 4.0 for better connectivity.
Get your ass in gear - and keep it there There was a time in my life when I recorded every piece of food I ate and every step I took. I kept a meal and exercise journal - an actual journal - before I had one on my computer.
As we predicted, 2014 was the year of wearable tech but 2015's new product introductions have made the category even more exciting and user friendly. Companies are coming out with new gadgets to help you reach your weight and fitness goals.
The Nike FuelBand is an activity tracker that aims to get you moving, and allows you to compare your activity with others in the Nike+ community. I tried out the device to see how easy it was to use, and whether it provided meaningful health information.
