Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Limited-Edition Nike+ FuelBand SE Rose Gold:


I tried the Nike+iPod Sensor (iPod Bluetooth-receiver/shoe Bluetooth sensor) when it came out back in 2006 - I bought two, so the top mole could track her walks as she recovered from a total knee replacement. I even bought her the dang "custom" Nike running shoes with the cutout to fit the sensor.

I had a Velcro "pocket" to hold my sensor - it looped under the laces and held the sensor on top of the laces, over my right foot's lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones. I like many other running /cross-training shoes much better than anything of Nike's that I've tried (these days I've gone well and truly nuts wearing 5.10 Camp Four - Dark Shadows to jog the three miles to the climbing gym, tighten the lacing up, climb the 5.6 routes for an hour, then jog back home).

Well, neither performed. Spouse and I took to the local college track (helps that she's a prof - I'd hate to have to score a fake ID at my age) and I lapped her 4:1 every other day for a month. We both wore our iPods in the standard bicep-wrap pouch.

No matter what I did I could never get the darn things to work with any accuracy. I could run the mile in 13 - 14 min and the data on the iPod never came close to the real world. At least I showed a couple of thousand feet - but, Mrs. Mole had bupkis on every walk.

I tried hopping. That's right, I made a fool of myself by hopping along beside Mrs. Mole while she broke in her new knee. I had some crazy idea that the sensor on my right shoe was, at least in part, an accelerometer and I guessed that the sharper acceleration and deceleration from a nice bounce might provide accurate data - I was wrong.

On Joe's advice I bought a Smooth Fitness treadmill (excellent, first rate, superb, quiet, powerful, [{}%%}% HEAVY) and both of us tried the Nike+ Sensor on the Treadmill - nada! N.B. There are treadmills out there that are sensor-friendly, or so I read....

So - nice bracelet - but I'll stick with the Brit's jewelry. Nike has no credibility with me.

Anybody need a pair of first gen Nike+Sensors? I still have them - and, I bet that they still don't work.
