Nike+ FuelBand SE

The Good The Nike+ FuelBand SE adds Bluetooth 4.0 for continuous syncing, more water resistance for wearing in the shower, hourly motivational reminders, and solid social connectivity with other Nike+ users.

The Bad No Android support; only works with iPhone 4S and later; Bluetooth syncing can get quirky; no vibration for silent alarms or hourly reminders; app's toolset is a little simplistic; doesn't track sleep.

The Bottom Line The Nike+ FuelBand SE is a minor upgrade to last year's FuelBand, adding Bluetooth 4.0 and a few new motivational wrinkles to its software, but the band's design is more successful than its package of features.

Welcome to the world of NikeFuel, and the Nike+ FuelBand SE, the latest version of the company's wearable wireless fitness band.

The world of wearable, smart fitness trackers is getting increasingly crowded, and there are a lot of options on the market: the Fitbit, the Jawbone Up, and lots of other assorted pedometers. The FuelBand was one of the first mainstream fitness gadgets, and it's perhaps the best-known, and the best marketed; Nike's presence as a company is far larger than any of the others.
