Nike+ FuelBand is equipped with a single button and is 100% waterproof allowing you to swim and shower with out a worry. The Nike+ FuelBand also features 20 performance LEDs, 100 white informational LEDs, bluetooth and a built in UDB plug. Currently the Bluetooth connection only works with Apple’s iPhone app, but Nike says more devices will be supported very soon. The new Nike+ FuelBand is available to purchase for $150. Engadget explains:
“A long peruse of the user manual revealed that the two metal extender links (for bigger-wristed enthusiasts) have to be swapped out using a sizing tool — but the manual notes that if one isn’t to hand, a bent paperclip will suffice. The documents also revealed that it’s using a TI CC2564 Bluetooth radio and a stack provided by Stonestreet One. The monopole antenna is etched directly into the substrate of the flexible circuit board — ensuring it’ll bend around your bones and still operate. We also learned that once connected to your cellphone, it’ll sit in a low-power “sniff mode,” for two minutes and if there’s no further activity it’ll shut down.”
