  • Durability I have been wearing this for over a year. I wears it 24/7, bump into things regularly. Band still works fine. great!
  • Portability No comments great!
  • Ease of use Press the button to cycle through informations, you can choose what to display. The band has built in USB port, so it does not require additional accessories great!
  • Design and form factor The band is small and sleek. But it will still hinder task like typing. And because it is made with soft touch rubber. It will stick to your clothes. good
Detailed review
I love the idea of an all day wearing device that keep track of your activities, the Nike+ Fuelband not only track your activeness throughout the day, it also functions as a watch. The LED display on the band is very easy to read and it has a built in ambient light sensor to adjust the brightness of the display. I have no problem reading it on any light situation. The band is water resistant, you can wear it while you wash your hands or shower (not swim however). The iPhone app is easy to use albeit a bit slow, for example, it doesn't cache your data, so every time you switch your view, like from week view to day view, it has to pull data from server again and it takes maybe 5 seconds. It doesn't sound like much, but when every action require 5s load, the app feels a bit slow. The band pairs up with your phone easily. And when it is paired, the fuel point update in real time. a single charge last for 4 days. It will tells you when it is nearly run out of battery when you press the button. It's a very well thought out device and it does its job very well. I imagine it is not the most accurate activity tracking device but I would definitely recommend it to anyone trying to improve fitness.
