Nike released its companion app for the sports tracker wristband on iOS at launch &ndash; two years ago&nbsp;&ndash; while Google&rsquo;s OS got no love whatsoever.

With three sizes and the ability to adjust the fit further with the bundled &#39;link&#39;, getting it comfortable takes a few minutes.</p> <p>There are two other physical changes. The FuelBand SE has better water-resistance, which means it&rsquo;s fine with a daily shower (though, sadly, not swimming). And connectivity is now via low-energy Bluetooth 4.0, which helps boost battery life to the upper end of Nike&rsquo;s four-day estimate. With average use, you&rsquo;ll need to recharge twice a week &ndash; about average for today&rsquo;s fitness bands.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper brightcove-player-wrapper"> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script> <script src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/APIModules_all.js"></script> <div class="brightcove-player"> <object id="myExperience-2772312323001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /> <param name="playerID" value="" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAEgPmGlk~,Fzd-TvXcznw-P3piHaryQBMeIzWITldz" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="2772312323001" /> <param name="autoStart" value="" /> <param name="htmlFallback" value="true" /> <param name="includeAPI" value="true" /> <param name="templateLoadHandler" value="brightcoveTemplateLoaded" /> <param name="width" value="640px" /> <param name="height" value="360px" /> </object> <!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

This is iOS-only, and Nike says there are currently no plans to bring it to Android &ndash; a bit of a downer considering the Jawbone Up and Fitbit Flex are both Android-friendly.</p> <p>Before tackling the app&rsquo;s changes, it&#39;s worth recapping how the FuelBand works. Inside the band is a three-axis accelerometer. When you (or, more specifically, your wrist) move about, it logs the movement and converts it into Nike&#39;s cross-sport scoring system called &#39;NikeFuel&#39;. Set yourself a daily NikeFuel target, and one press of the band&rsquo;s button will tell you your score on its impressive LED display.</p> <p>Previously, the FuelBand could only gather your points and provide a daily total &ndash; not great if you wanted to see how you or your friends faired on yesterday&#39;s run.</p> <p>So now the band and app have a new feature called &#39;Sessions&#39;. Hold down the band&#39;s button, then press again, and it&#39;ll start a segment of exercise that you can later label and compare to previous workouts in the same category.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" alt="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fuelband4.jpg?1387119058" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" alt="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Nikefuel-sessions.jpg?1387119058" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Missing the target </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>This is an improvement and marks the FuelBand out as the sportiest of the fitness bands. But there is a problem. Because NikeFuel relies solely on the bands&#39; accelerometer, it has a big bias towards activities that involve arm movement.</p> <p>Some examples. A shower gave us 106 points and a brisk walk to the shops 448 points. But at the gym, a ten-minute rowing session produced only 150 points and a ten-minute cycle just 12 points.</p> <p>Nike has improved the algorithms that decide how many points each activity earns, but the estimates are, inevitably, quite rough. For more accurate step counts you really need a foot pod (such as the Nike+ sensor, which crazily isn&#39;t FuelBand-compatible) and measuring intensity ideally requires GPS or a heart-rate monitor.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" alt="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fuelband-app.jpg?1387119058" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The loneliness of the FuelBand runner </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Of course, the FuelBand SE is aimed at beginners rather than marathon trainers. And it isn&#39;t necessarily any less accurate than its rivals. But a discreet, versatile alternative to a GPS watch it isn&rsquo;t. There&rsquo;s also something a bit odd about a supposed multisport accessory being incompatible with cycling, swimming and most gym equipment.</p> <p>This wouldn&#39;t be such an issue if Nike allowed other apps to compensate for the FuelBand&rsquo;s weaknesses. But unlike the Jawbone and Fitbit worlds, which let you import data from apps such as Strava and MyFitnessPal, planet FuelBand is completely closed. We prefer our fitness engines to run on more than just Nike gas.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Bragging rights </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>This closedness does bring one small benefit, though &ndash; a smoother, simpler social experience. If you have FuelBand friends, you can now sort them into &lsquo;Groups&lsquo; and scroll through their activities in the app as if it were a sporty Twitter feed. The relatively level playing field of NikeFuel points gives this feature a glanceable simplicity.</p> <p>We draw the line, though, at taking photos on our runs, stamping them with a Nike swoosh and sharing them on social networks &ndash; unless you like feeling like a human billboard for sports brands.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" alt="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fuelband-desktop.jpg?1387119058" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Tetris for exercise </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Aside from its social features, the FuelBand SE&rsquo;s other big strength is motivating you with rewards. If you&rsquo;ve turned on &lsquo;move reminders&rsquo;, a new feature called &lsquo;win the hour&lsquo; urges you to stay active for five consecutive minutes every, um, hour.</p> <p>It might sound annoying, but virtual trophies like this are surprisingly good at compelling you to, say, walk rather than hop on a bus. Nike has also cleverly designed the app so that some trophies need to be &lsquo;unlocked&rsquo;.</p> <p>This means the FuelBand is capable of giving its owners a shot of what game designers call &lsquo;fiero&lsquo;, or that feeling you get when a Tetris line vanishes. That, for beginner athletes, provides potentially waist-reducing addictiveness.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" alt="Nike+ FuelBand SE review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Fuelband-rewards.jpg?1387119058" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-6"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The FuelBand SE isn&rsquo;t enough of an evolution to keep Nike at the top of the fitness band tree.

The addition of this next-gen Bluetooth tech helps to bolster one of the Fuelband SE’s main new features: Sessions. Here, users can track individual sessions and check out their Fuel Rate – so keeping a watchful eye on accumulated Fuel Points in real time.</p> <p>This is all part of the new Nike+ FuelBand app and can be used alongside a variety of different sports and activities that Nike has already programmed into the app, ranging from running to boxing to playing football. This also means sleep tracking – if you’re into that kind of thing. The idea is users can track exactly how much NikeFuel they earned in that specific session of activity for more precise Fuel Point earnings.</p> <p>Perhaps more interesting is the FuelBand SE’s new ability to track exercise lacking any arm movement – like Yogo or cycling. The Nike+ FuelBand app lets you calibrate the FuelBand SE to ensure you earn the right amount of Fuel Points. This added intensity measurement means you get the curate the intensity of your movement, while ensuring you're being rewarded correctly.</p> <p>And since we’re all about sharing, you can add photos and location to your workouts – you can even get friends to cheer you on in the form of a like or comment that will appear underneath your post.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_SAM2321_0.JPG?1384402023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_SAM2346_0.JPG?1384402023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_SAM2322_0.JPG?1384402023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_SAM2318_1.JPG?1384402023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Motivate not procrastinate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Nike recommends users should maintain constant movement throughout the day in order to stay healthy and live longer. Of course, Nike isn't suggesting that purchasing a FuelBand means you’ll outlive your unborn child, but rather that constant movement is conducive to a healthier lifestyle.&nbsp;</p> <p>So rather than just participating in short spurts of activity or cheekily doing a vigorous work out at five to midnight to ensure you hit your daily goal, the Nike+ FuelBand has introduced the Fuel Curve graph that charts your activity by the hour to showcase how you’ve been moving throughout the day, with five consecutive minutes per hour of sustained activity being the minimum to achieve an hourly goal using its Win the Hour feature. It’ll even throw up hourly reminders to get up and move.</p> <p>Flipping the app into landscape will mode give you a new view for tracking your weekly goal, the hours you've "won" and the intensity of your movements, while comparing weekly stats with preivous figures and friends has also been introduced.</p> <p>There’s nothing like a well-earned pat on the back to keep that motivation alive, which is why Nike has paid particular attention to awarding users as part of its milestone features. Now, users can earn Achievements and unlock not just for the amount of NikeFuel racked up, but also for Sessions, Fuel Rate and hours won.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_SAM2320_0.JPG?1384402023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_SAM2333_0.JPG?1384402023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_SAM2334_0.JPG?1384402023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_SAM2335_0.JPG?1384402023" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> It’s a team effort </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>For many, sports and exercise is all about team work.
