The new FuelBand SE is designed to push people towards moving more through out the day. Indeed, Nike imagines FuelBand users to buy into its Fuel activity point system which the company says is even more addictive than ever.

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.

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 element ...

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.

The new Fuelband is better than the last one and if you liked the last version then this update won’t disappoint.

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.

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 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 Verge
The biggest addition to the new bracelet is Bluetooth 4.0, which enables users to track individual sessions and view the Fuel point earnings in real time. Session tracking is part of the new Nike+ FuelBand app and can be used for a variety of different activities.
