How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

If you're willing to forget about calories, steps or other measures and embrace "NikeFuel" as your new metric for workout success, the Nike+ FuelBand may well work for you. However, if your fitness regimen is based on time, miles, or other more traditional goals, you may be better off with another product, such as the FitBit Ultra or Nike's Nike+ iPod sensor. That said, if NikeFuel catches on and all of your friends start comparing their Fuel point goals, you may find the FuelBand unavoidable.
