Prizefight: Prizefight: Get that summer bod with tech!

4:46 /

Fitness tech is an emerging trend, and we're facing off the Nike+ FuelBand and Fitbit Ultra. Is Nike's branding power alone too much for the Fitbit? Let's get it on!

What's up price five fans. I'm Brian Tong in Digital Fitness Devices. A (??) new emerging trends and text we're bringing you the best of the best. Here's the price five punch out between the Nike+ FuelBand and the FitBit Ultra. Our judges for this device are Senior Editor of Brian (??) and myself (releasing?) Tong. Now we'll take both judges (??) stores and (averging?) amounts in their empty (??), the final price fight for would be average of all rounds to do these names at decimal system. It's four round we'll finish; first one is design. The Nike+ FuelBand is a comfortable rubberize wrist band with a real click (elegy?) display, that's colorful and animated. It's water resistant so you can shower with it and for better or worst, it's a fashion name and because you really can't hide this thing. Now the Fitbit Ultra may not be splashy but that's why I personally like it's clean clip on design, that's pretty much invisible to others and (upper lift?) to wear. It's monochrome display, the simple and does the job and it's a semi water resistant but you can't shower with it and really where are you going to wear this. The Nike+ FuelBand take round one with a 4.5 and the Fitbit Ultra will get a 4. Next round is features. The FuelBand is simple to use and operate but it's a pretty basic feature set. It attracts your overall activity level but it's (vagus?) feature and the ability to sync it's data to the Nike+ FuelBand (apple?) wireless over bluetooth anytime plus you can earn an achievement badges and match up your status friend with social hooks for Facebook and Twitter. Now the Fitbit Ultra is that data freaks playground. It attracts your overall activity level that's more detailed but also includes a sleep mode to assess the quality of your sleep plus to the Fitbit app you'll be able to answering your food and water intake, track your weight and the web interface has an (app gallery?) that plugs into even more services and Twitter integration. It is (vague?) negative though is that there's no bluetooth syncing and you'll have to be within 15 feet of the USB connected (phase?) station to computer to sync your data. The Fitbit Ultra feature set (will build set?) to Nike+ FuelBand and it takes the this round with a 4 and Nike gets a 3. Dr. (Advin?) he rounds a (5th field?) by little, next round is data. With the devices like these it's all about the data. Now the FuelBand collects your steps calorie burn and Nike (Fuel?) metric called Nike Fuel that's our own calculations based on your overall activity level. It's fun to obtain more fuel, reach your daily goal and I'll do your friends but the problems that we don't know how it's measured and it's not anchored in reality. Now I found I could booth my number of steps and Nike Fuel score just by swinging my arm back and forth rapidly. That's not a good thing and the data here just it doesn't feel very accurate. Now the Fitbit Ultra shine when it comes to the data that's much more reliable clicking your steps, calories, (life of stairs?) and your current level activity with this cute little flower graphic. You can see how reckless your sleep was from the (19th floor?) and (actually?) learn from it and some pair of that with other Fitbit users. Calorie burned (??) differentiate from those products but the Ultra appears to be more reliable. Fitbit take this round with a perfect 5 and the Nike+ FuelBand gets a 2.5, ouch. Now there's one more round left to go and the final round that decides it all is value. At $149 for the Nike+ FuelBand you're gotta be paying for that Nike brand and it might worth you with a bluetooth syncing. I love him (ten?). Whatta amazing company like Nike is finding a way to consumerize fitness with text and it'll be able to drawn more users while leverging social networks from competing with friends. Now the Fitbit Ultra range in 99 buzz and it's a really sweet price (??) for gadgets that people won't even know you're using. There's also an optional premium service for 99 a year that gives you even more advance data analysis with the social hook are is strong. Now we're split on this what and we're calling this round a tie as 3.5 point (of pick?). With average all four rounds with a Nike+ FuelBand took an early (win?) with a Fitbit Ultra, staying strong and would not be denied taking this battle 4.1 to 3.4 and it's your price five winner. I'm Brian Tong thanks for watching (Gadget?) guide next time for another price five.
