PROS

  • The Nike+ FuelBand SE features a simple, sturdy design that comes in basic black and a few colorful options.
  • The tracker includes social features for connecting--and competing--with other Nike users, and Sessions, a feature for tracking specific workouts and exercises.
  • The FuelBand displays the time, steps, calories burned, and Nike Fuel on the band itself.

CONS

  • The FuelBand is not waterproof, so it cannot be worn in the shower or while swimming.
  • Nike Fuel is an arbitrary means of tracking activity.
  • The FuelBand does not track heart rate, sleep, or steps climbed.
The Nike+ FuelBand SE is the second version of Nike's line of fitness trackers, which were groundbreaking when they were introduced but have since been discontinued. The FuelBand SE is still available through third-party retailers. It tracks steps, workouts, and calories burned, and converts the wearer's overall activity into Nike Fuel Points. All of this information is displayed on the Band's LED or through Nike's mobile app. The FuelBand is a basic black wristband with neon-colored accents. It comes in three sizes.

It’s clear that you can still wave around your hand for a few seconds and add 10 or so Fuel points. Cheating the system is still possible and that’s invariably something Nike is going to continually need to address.

The big, bannerlike LED array feels like a mini billboard on your wrist, and glows futuristically up from the rubberized black band. The readout runs across the band, so you have to turn your wrist -- it's odd, but it works.

The SE is more waterproof than its predecessor, but it's still the kind of thing I'd take off in the shower, which meant sometimes I'd forget to put it back on, and then I'd just neglect to wear it for the rest of the day. Oops!
