Can the Nike+ Fuelband be used around an ankle to better monitor activity?

I've been reading good reviews on the current model, however I have been curious as to why Nike chose the wrist over the leg/ankle. As a competitor bodybuilding, I'm beginning my cardio stage and would enjoy improved tracking of my workouts. This doesn't seem helpful when arm movement is measured, especially on leg workouts, etc. I was considering the extra large model, but it does not state the diameter size. Does anyone know if this can be used on an ankle? Thanks!

  • According to the Technical specs ALL three sizes are 172 mm / 6.7 inches in circumference. Obviously an error somewhere... This is about my wrist size, so I doubt if even the extra large will go around an ankle.
