Latest news about Nike Fuelband and Polar Loop:



18.07.15. Activity tracker Polar Loop 2 adds notifications . Polar just released a brand-new version of its activity tracker, the Loop 2 that now competes directly with the Fitbit Charge and Jawbone Up. Like its predecessor, the Loop 2 is all about passively tracking your activity during the day — it’s not just for when you’re running. It comes with an LED display very reminiscent of Nike’s FuelBand to display your activity. But this time, the display can also show your phone notifications, and the band vibrates. It’s not ideal, as it seems the Loop 2 can only display a few letters at a time, but it should be enough to get caller ID on your wrist and see if you should bother looking at your phone. It can also act as a silent alarm clock on your wrist, gently vibrating in the morning. It costs $120.



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.
