HTC Re Grip vs Nike Fuelband
Desire can be measured. Its units are time, distance and speed. And the more desire you put in, the more your training gives back. Track every minute, mile and rep.
The Nike+ FuelBand is designed for anyone who wants to be more active. It measures your daily activity and turns it all into NikeFuel. So you can set a goal for every day and then go out and beat it. Life is a sport. Make it Count.
Latest news about HTC Re Grip and Nike Fuelband:
04.03.15. HTC targets fitness fanatics with its first wearable, the HTC Re Grip. HTC is getting into fitness wearables, with a fitness band, drawing on a strategic partnership it announced earlier this year with fitness gear maker Under Armour — who will be supplying the tracking software that the band hooks into. HTC’s first wearable, Grip wrist band is being positioned as a ruggedized, water resistant wearable for athletes and sports oriented folk, rather than as a general step tracker to motivate people who don’t move very much (although it does do step tracking). Different types of activity will be trackable, from walking to cycling to gym sessions. The Grip has a pedometer and GPS, the latter being relatively rare for fitness wristbands — although Microsoft’s fitness band includes GPS, as do more fully featured sports watches — along with Bluetooth Low Energy so it can hook into additional fitness devices, such as a heart rate monitor, for more granular tracking.
13.07.14. Nike FuelBand is available on Android. Two years after launching the FuelBand activity tracking wristband with iOS app, Nike finally has released the app for Android users. The companion app provides access to NikeFuel score information and history, and makes it so that your Android device can connect to your FuelBand as long as it has Bluetooth LE capabilities. Other features include the ability to track and receive progress updates for a daily NikeFuel goal, tracking by individual session, the new “Win the Hour” feature for FuelBand SE owners, leaderboard with friends, syncing in the background over Bluetooth LE and more.
22.04.14. Nike will stop developing FuelBand. Nike fired much of the team responsible for the development of its FuelBand and shelved plans for a new version of the fitness tracker. Why run for the exit now? Nike FuelBand is now one of the market leaders and receives generally good reviews. Nike isn't leaving behind wearables - it's just not going to make any new hardware. The company said it will continue to support existing FuelBands, and its team will work to adapt the software for more platforms. Given Nike's close ties to Apple, this only fuels speculation about an upcoming release of the long-rumored Apple wearable — the iWatch.
