Having had my Nike Fuel for 10 days, heres the reasons why you're probably better off guessing the daily figures in your head then paying attention to anything this band has to say.
Firstly, one of the main reasons I bought this band was that I believed it told you how many miles/kilometres you did in a day. I believe that, whilst this used to be a feature, Nike have done a software upload to take this out as they didn't see it to be accurate. So I had to do without and use the dodgy 2,000 = 1mile rule!
So now that I was forced to base my exercise routine on steps, I wanted to set a daily step goal function that most pedometers come with. No.....Nike fuel doesn't do that either. The only goal you're able to set is your daily Nike Fuel points, which lets face it, when you first start using the band, it is impossible to set a target that will challenge you as you do not know the value of the fuel points.
Another problem I found with this was that it was hideously inaccurate. I only have myself to blame as most of the bad reviews focused its inaccuracy but again I thought how bad can it be. I found that if you walk with your hands in your pocket (which, lets face it, isn't entirely uncommon), it won't register the steps, which means you were better off taking the car - at least then you have a faint hope that changing gear will count as a step!!Read more ›
Introducing "NikeFuel" as a system of measurement is just awkward. The Nike website won't tell me what it is. Just some sweeping statements. So if I walk for 10 minutes and earned 50 NikeFuels, what is it? Just like Swatch's Beat, who cares other than the companies that created them?
When I first logged on to the website, I was asked to choose my goal. By default, there is a Fuel target of 2400. They should have explained what it means to me. Poor first impression. I easily achieved this target, but I am not sure how much to increase. There is a better way of choosing a target, but it's not apparent. The website and the accompanying software is so sparse it is annoying. I cannot really find specific answers.
I am sorry but I can't get around using the band efficiently. Connecting the band to the PC is a hassle. It won't connect at times, the accompanying app for the PC is too clever for its own good - there is no shut down function other than unplug the band. And which side to connect the band to the USB? Should have included a direction sign. To get to the time on the FuelBand, I have to press thrice. After a while, I am bored with it and I am relying on other means to tell time. Unless the band do more than just an expensive pedometer, I am not having it attached to my body day and night.
Finally, to the head-honcho up in the head office. I use my mobile a lot. Hardly on the PC. Not supporting Android is absurd. In these day and age, lack of choice means segregation. I am not having this.

Nike+ fuelband have lots of IT problems
Essentially this means that these are completely useless. You end up spending £180 for a rubber band.
