    Excellent product

    • Written by from langley

    My husband bought his first and wore it daily for about a year before I bought mine . I also put it on first thing in the morning and keep it on all day . Once you get used to how it works it really motivates me and I love knowing exactly how I am doing that day . Several of our friends have now purchased and love the fuel band . It is fun to set your goal and see how you can accomplish it . The web page when you sync and charge it is really fun as well . I love all the information it provides .

    Worth Every Penny

    • Written by from honeybrook

    While I can understand the issues everyone posts I personally love my Fuel Band. My first one was replaced free of any charge by Nike after a few of the lights blew out but the replacement is working just fine. Combined with an iPhone you can truly unlock all of its abilities in the best way. My first fuel band was linked to my old Android device and while it was still a great product it is nothing compared to being linked with the iPhone (just my personal opinion). Either way you can not go wrong purchasing a Fuel Band. It is worth every penny. It is very stylish and just overall a very cool product as well. I highly recommend the Fuel Band.

    Lasted only two months

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I bought it last May 2014 and I thought it was great from the start. The app is great as it gives me the information I needed. It motivated me to take a regular walk and I wear it every time except when going to sleep. After a month, the link became loose and I tried to find where I can purchase a replacement link but unfortunately I can't find anywhere, even at Nike online. I continue using it while still looking a place to buy replacement link, but through time, the other end of the bracelet where the link connects came off. I tried to fix it last night and found out that the spring for the lock was dislocated. Now I'm worried if I can still claim the warranty for it. It's too expensive to get broken easily.

    Sync Problems

    • Written by from Beaverton

    I have owned the Fuel Band SE for about 2 months. I love the features of the band, and as other users say, it keeps me motivated. I like it more now that I have discovered "Sessions" for walking, training, etc. Those times when you aren't using your arms too much so Fuel points are harder to track. My biggest issue with the product is it's inability to sync properly. I have the Iphone 4s and I have had trouble getting it to sync properly with my phone. I contacted Nike customer service and tried everything I was told to do and now it won't connect at all! It is very frustrating and now I will have to send it back and wait for a replacement. Their customer service team is fantastic and very helpful, so I am hoping getting a new band fixes the issue.

    Not reliable

    • Written by from SAo Paulo

    I had two of these. Both ended with button broke. Other thing to notice is that the battery is not replaceable. There are better choices in the market with excellent synchrony with Apple products.

    I enjoy this

    • Written by from Sylmar

    So to be honest it really doesn't track everything its just certain motions and movement. I bought it cause i saw it on vogue and thought it was really cool looking. Especially with the whole wearable tech thing being in. I like it i keeps me motivated. what does frustrate me though is when I'm at the gym it doesn't really track some of that. but whatever i compete with my friends to see whose the laziest!

    Outstanding motivational tool for improving overall fitness

    • Written by from NEW ROCHELLE

    There is a simple elegance to this product that will benefit anyone interested in improving their overall fitness level. First, wear it daily for a week to get a baseline. Then choose a daily target to aspire to. You'll find yourself taking the stairs more often; parking the car a little further from the grocery store, going for a walk during your lunch hour. You'll be looking for ways to earn points. The Nike iPhone app will reward you with accolades for your efforts which will inspire you to push further.

    Resist the temptation to dissect Nike's proprietary Fuelpoint system. Like any other activity tracking device (including heart rate monitors, pedometers, fitness machine calorie calculators, etc) it is neither perfect nor an exact scientific measurement. However, it will keep you in tune to how much you are moving which will, for many, drive you to move more often - which is the whole point.

    I've had mine for about 4 months and wear it every day. I take it off at night. Battery can last for several days and charges easily via standard USB port. I have accidentally gone swimming with it without incident (note: Nike does not claim it to be water proof). This simple device created an awareness that has removed me from the couch and played a key role in loosing over 40 pounds.

    FuelBand SE - Hoping for more

    • Written by from Longmont

    I received my FuelBand SE for Christmas. The first one I received was a large and was uncomfortable so I exchanged it for an XL and it fit much better. Although still a bit uncomfortable. The big issue was lack of consistent connectivity with my iPhone. I had several exchanges with Nike technical support and they did a good job of trying to solve the issues (the reason it gets 2 stars). Each time my fuel band was recharged, it would not reconnect to my phone. The most reliable solution was to uninstall the Nike app from my phone, re-install it and then it would re-connect. Seems a bit inconvenient. In addition to the issue each time it was recharged, it would just randomly lose it's connection to the phone. Sometimes rebooting the phone would solve the problem. Way too many issues for not much benefit. I finally returned mine.

    New and Improved.

    • Written by from Fresh Meadows

    Bought this when it first came out. Got the volt green color. The fuelpoints are very engaging and motivational, sort of like a game in a sense. Love the animation when I reach my goal for the day. At first, I synced via USB on my computer, had no issues there. Now I sync with my 5s and it's easy and does the job well. Only wish it a vibration setting for sleep/wake like other fitness wearables have.

    Not ready for prime time?

    • Written by from Cuba

    A year ago I owned the 1st Gen FuelBand and found it generally trouble-free (until it died after a year of continuous use!) and the Nike software/infrastructure relatively responsive and reliable.

    My experience (since December 2013) with the new SE model has been far less satisfactory. The device works well some days but the bluetooth connection can drop out for no apparent reason (and it's difficult to re-connect without rebooting the iPhone).

    The Nike+ website is often "down" or won't accept my attempts to log on. When I do get logged in successfully, the data recorded doesn't match what I see on my iPhone.

    Nike+ support is, in general, helpful and sympathetic but I've had FAR more issues with the SE than I had with the first model AND the problems are more annoying.

    Nike's development of this product seems to be moving backwards, not forwards.

    Not very good

    • Written by

    While this might work well for walking and running it does not work well for Biking, eliptical etc. My husband actually go thousands of points for golfing....with a cart. It is not able to differentiate different activities at all. For simple motivation....it is okay.

    Good Tracking

    • Written by from Cumming

    I have the original Fuel Band and love it. For Christmas, purchased the SE for my mother to help keep her motivated on her walks. Does a great job. Noticed a lot of people having issues with the set up. Setting hers up was quick and simple. Took less than 5 minutes. Syncing with her iPhone is great and fast. Just wish this was water proof and had the ability to add a heart rate monitoring sensor. But for a motivation tool and decent tracking, the FuelBand is a great product.

    Issues? Where?

    • Written by from Edgerton

    Not sure why there's all the bad reviews online - I've had zero issues with syncing/data/online/band/etc. Using the SE with iPhone 5s and synced to both an iMac and a windows desktop. So far - loving this thing! Fit for me was great as well, without an extender either (included in the package). 6'3" - 220lbs and the M/L fits great!

    Disappointing

    • Written by from mansfield

    Had high hopes for this product,but couldn't be more disappointed. After trying all day just to get the fuelband se set up, I gave up and returned it. I went with the fit bit force instead and haven't regretted it. It syncs to either apple or android devices and was much easier to set up.

    Upgraded from v1.0

    • Written by from Chicago

    I purchased Nike's first version of the Fuelband in July 2012 and received the Fuelband SE as a Christmas gift.

    Pros
    Upgraded HW - Better HW response, faster LCD scrolling, Bluetooth LE (better battery life), and data sync is very fast.

    Cons
    Nike needs to refine the algorithm to allow the calculation of other activities like bike riding and yoga. I would like to see more integration with other apps like weight tracking. Neither are show-stoppers (for me), but are nice to haves.

    Cant sync properly at all

    • Written by from Ithaca

    The bracelet has done wonders to motivate me, but its currently a half baked product. Sync simply doesn't work unless you force restart the app. And if it DOES sync without a restart, it doesn't know what day it is the second time you refresh. Gave me the same score on a second day and a bunch of badges i didn't earn. As soon as you restart the app and resync, all disappear and a correct score displays. They rushed it for xmas, and its obv they didnt care if a good product shipped.

    No sleeptracking, some connectivity issues

    • Written by from Moscow

    It is my first Nike bracelet and my first activity tracker at all (except some tracking experience using iPhone apps) and in general I like this product.

    First disappointment was that it is actually do not track sleep activity. You can just start a session and select "Sleep" type for it, and after that you can see sleep time and fuel you got from it. As for every activity, you can specify location and friends with who you slept, get cheers and share it on Facebook...

    Also some issue with iPhone integration. Sometimes it lost bluetooth connection, sometimes Nike+ service is unavailable. This leads to situation when you can see some strange results in iPhone app and need to wait some time while bluetooth connection is restored and app is synced with bracelet. Not a big deal, but it leads to issues with "Win the hour" feature which can skip some reminders or not properly track the hours you actually won. Yesterday I had 11 hours won in my app and only 4 displayed on bracelet.

    Would love to see proper sleeptracking with "easy wake up" feature using vibro in feature product. Also vibro would be great for "win the hour" notifications displayed on bracelet, not pushed by the iPhone app.

    Battery life is good, appearance is good, size adjusting is good. Would like to see software updates to get rid of sync issues.
