For now, after a few days, the novelty of the gadget wears off when you realize the data doesn't really tell you much more than how much you moved, in the broadest of strokes, compared to the previous day.

The Nike+ FuelBand SE is a minor upgrade to last year's FuelBand, adding Bluetooth 4.0 and a few new motivational wrinkles to its software, but the band's design is more successful than its package of features.

The Nike+ FuelBand SE fitness-tracking bangle looks sporty and feels comfortable, but it's priced higher than other devices that measure more meaningful data.

If you're new to the FuelBand concept, then the SE is a strong contender in the fitness category. The end result is great, particularly if you have an iPhone to get the most out of all the data.

The Nike+ Fuelband SE costs more than some other fitness trackers, but it's simple to use and will teach you more about how you move throughout the day than ever before.

It is certainly a great gadget for tracking your overall sports performance, but for those looking for something that’s more geared up for tracking walking or more sedentary activity during a working day, there are better alternatives out there for less money.

The Nike FuelBand SE reckons it's an Olympic leap beyond the original, but if you're not making full use of Sessions on a day to day basis, its strides forward aren't massive.

In all honesty, however, incremental change is going to be enough for FuelBand SE to succeed with plenty of people. From our perspective, a wearable accessory only wins if you actually want to wear it, and FuelBand SE has the right weight, sizing, and look to appeal broadly to a large cross-section...

The Nike+ FuelBand SE is one of the more mature activity monitors on the market and it shows. Accuracy is good and the unique Fuel accruement system is a motivator for those looking to get more active.

...the fact that there's not much to get excited about for current users doesn't negate the fact that the Fuelband itself is still a great, simple and engaging device.

Nike’s updated FuelBand still isn’t perfect, and there are some features that I’d like to see added to the next model. Right now, though, I do feel that the FuelBand SE has the best balance of form, features, functionality and flexibility.

On first glance the band looks the same. It's roughly the same size and features the same OLED display, but it now adds a hint of colour to the proceedings although that is mostly hidden. But it's what's inside that has changed ... We love the hourly challenge feature and think this will add a new...

There's still the odd gap, but the SE does a great job of fixing the flaws of the original. Is it a smartwatch? Who cares? It's a brilliantly focused piece of fitness wearable that we guarantee will get you moving more throughout the day.

So, it's still like being manacled to your personal trainer – only now he's bigger, stronger and has upped your regime. If you were hoping for a completely new FuelBand, Nike's announcement may come as bit of a disappointment.

In hardware, it's pretty much what you know and love from the Fuelband. The new bands have an added touch of colour (on the inside), but wearing it feels about the same. The water resistance has been boosted, the socket feels more secure.
