1.0 out of 5 stars Firmware updates make this unusable, 31 May 2013
This review is from: Nike+ Fuelband with Calorie Counter and Range Finder (Sports)
When I first bought this, it worked perfectly and I was very pleased with it. However, progressive firmware "updates" have made it virtually unusable. Sometimes it doesn't reset to zero fuel at the start of each day. Sometimes it just won't display anything at all. Sometimes it doesn't synchronise properly. The behaviour of the device has become increasingly random. I have tried a complete factory reset several times with no luck. I can no longer recommend this device, It feels like an unfinished, beta product that keeps changing. Nike - if it an't broke don't fix it! These constant software updates have ruined this device.

Actually, I had the same problem BEFORE I updated the firmware (must have been some time in May, I think). Afterwards my fuel band worked perfectly - but then I only ever connect it to my computer every other week or so. Meaning, I might have missed some of the updates that may have caused instabilities.
I'd be interested to hear if your problems have been resolved by now...?
