First Look: Nike unleashes new FuelBand SE

2:43 /

Meet the $149 Nike FuelBand SE, the second edition of the popular FuelBand fitness accessory, which is more water resistant and tracks sleep.

Hey, guys. This is Brian Bennett for CNET.com and right now, we're talking a first look at the Nike Plus FuelBand SE. Now, this device costs $149 and goes on sale right now for pre-order but also will hit the market on November 6th. So, basically, this device is a follow up to the original FuelBand fitness gadget that became really popular from Nike and has very engaging color LED screen here which shows your basic fuel status, how many points you have in Nike's Fuel system. So, Nike also says that the Nike FuelBand SE is also more water resistant, so you can take it in the shower and will also connect to iOS devices only just like the predecessor. Unfortunately, there's no Android support at the moment. So, what's really interesting about the new platform for the Nike Plus FuelBand SE is that the new Apple encouraged you to get motivated and move every hour hopefully five minutes out of each hour and essentially ensure that you are active throughout the day and that will hopefully lead to a better lifestyle and better health. Other things that are nice about this Nike FuelBand SE is that it comes in four different colors, it will come in black, a crimson color, electric blue, as well as a green sort of hue, and it's all inside the band here. So, another really interesting feature that Nike has added to its latest fuel band is the ability to log sessions or activities for your workouts. So, essentially, what you do is just press this button, hold it down and that will kick off the recording feature. So, if you go, say play tennis or go to yoga class, you could just press that button and record that activity and log it later. Also, you can log your sleep by doing the same thing, hitting that button, holding it now right before you go to sleep that will log the session that will begin sleep recording and when you wake up, just hit that button again and you have recorded how long you slept that night. So, the Nike Plus FuelBand SE will sync over wireless Bluetooth connection. It uses the profile version, Bluetooth 4.0 and if you don't wanna sync it that way, you can basically unhook the hinge and plug in to your Mac or PC using a USB port that's right here on the edge of the band. So, there you have it, folks. You've just taken a first look at the Nike Plus FuelBand SE. I am Brian Bennet for CNET.com.
