Nike Fuel Band Review — what's up?

nike fuel band review
At last, my Nike Fuel Band has arrived! I've been waiting anxiously for it the past couple of months! 

I'm so glad I'm finally able to get my hands on the new Nike Fuel Band, and that is exactly why I'm about to publish this Nike Fuel Band review.

Nike had been teasing me with promotional emails of some kind ever since January - so needless to say I was kind of anxious to try this thing out.

Also — I work as a personal trainer with a lot of different clients all day long. I think that's what made me wanna buy it in the first place - being able to track how active of a lifestyle it is that I have. I have always been wondering how much energy I am releasing throughout the day.

The packaging of the Nike Fuel Band made me feel like I had just bought an iPhone or an iPod. I got this tingly feeling inside my stomach right before opening the package. It just seemed too good to be true. Could this product really live up to its expectations?

After downloading the software for the Nike Fuel Band and resizing it to fit my wrist — I was ready to rock! Contrary to what I had originally believed — the Nike Fuel Band is not a heart rate monitor. I repeat - the Nike Fuel Band is not a heart rate monitor.

The Nike Fuel Band tracks your steps, your calories and your "fuel" — which is what the Nike Fuel Band is really all about. Fuel.

While Nike's website may not do a great job of explaining what it is this little bad boy does — it's great to use while losing weight as it gives you motivation.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the most positive thing about the Nike Fuel Band. It both helps and encourages you to reach your goals. You can even set goals inside the watch and track them along the way. How does that sound?

Favorite thing about the Nike Fuel Band: Adjust-ability, calorie tracking, and the flashing LED lights when you reach your goal.
Least favorite thing about the Nike Fuel Band: That it doesn’t work as a heart rate monitor. (it never claimed to)
