For people who know me they’ll know I’m a gadget guy. I love playing with new technology and seeing how it can fit into my life and make this easier, efficient, fun, interesting, etc. So when @weathlybigpenis posted the following tweet:
I had to check it out.
So I headed over to Nike’s website for the FuelBand and checked it out. The site it’s self while okay, really isn’t clear on exactly everything is can or cannot measure. I ended up having a conversation with Scott over twitter and it was enough to peak my interest in actually thinking further about maybe purchasing it.
I think the biggest motivation as to why I purchased it was a few things. I’m attracted to neat innovative gadgets, I’m looking to get back into shape by hitting the gym, and I’ve been picking up activity on MyFitnessPal and watching what I eat. I figured if this device could help track my calories and cardio then why not. I’m all for an advantage if there is one to be had. I picked it up today (Saturday) and have been wearing it since around 2pm.
Here are a few pictures of the packaging and how it looks on my wrist.
While I don’t have much more to write at this point, since I’ve only had it less than 12 hours, I will write more in about a month and let you know how I’m finding it and if it really is worth the $150 dollars I paid for it. So far I think it’s a “nifty” little piece of technology and can’t wait to show it off.
Have a great weekend!
