LG Lifeband Touch vs Nike Fuelband
The LG Lifeband Touch is the company’s first take on a health-tracking wearable that works with both Android and iOS devices. Available in three sizes, the Lifeband Touch has a touchscreen display and a pair of sensors: an altimeter and a three-axis gyroscope. These can measure movement as well as air pressure, so they’re useful for tracking stairs climbed, for example. Because the device has just a few sensors and uses a power-efficient OLED screen, LG says the Lifeband Touch can run for 5 days between charges.
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 LG Lifeband Touch and Nike Fuelband:
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.
