In the last article, we discovered the FuelBand.
Now let’s play along and see what we can or can’t do with the FuelBand and how it works.

So now you walking/running/exercising like crazy with your Fuelband. Don’t move your arm more than usual, it won’t change anything or give you more fuel πŸ˜‰ just act normal, like if it wasn’t there.

When you meet someone wearing the Fuelband, the 1st question is ‘What’s your goal ?’ and ‘How much Fuel are you at?’
Push the button, and it tells you the steps you took, the calories burned based on your activity, the time and your Fuel (which reflects your level of effort).

If you sync the band with your iPhone, you’ll have also the distance traveled.

How to sync your bracelet ? Easy, just push 2-3 secs the button on your bracelet until you see ‘sync’ blinking. Then release, your bracelet is talking to your iPhone and your profile will be updated.

If you check your performance online (computer or iPad), you’ll have more informations as

  • Your last achievement
  • Comparisons with your category of age&sex (most Nikefuel, average Nikefuel/day, daily goals hit).
  • It also challenges you to accept new goals (I start with a Fuel goal set at 3000 and now, I increased it to 3200, an athlete tennis player goes between 5.000 to 7.000 easy).

Be aware that letting the Bluetooth on will reduce your iPhone battery life, so turn it off when not needed or bring your Mophie with you πŸ˜‰

Next article will crunch the datas and analyze my day.

PS:

  • I don’t dare to wear it under the shower, I could do it but I don’t dare
  • I wear it when I sleep
  • It’s not necessary to have an iPhone you can update your profile through connecting the bracelet to a computer
