Latest news about Nike Fuelband and miCoach:
23.08.14. Adidas opens miCoach APIs to developers. Adidas is gearing up to open its miCoach platform to developers. The developer tools will allow other apps to integrate movement, tracking, and even coaching data from Adidas miCoach products, which include the miCoach Smart Run watch, the XCell heartrate and activity tracker, the sports-tracking Speed Cell, and tools for tracking and supporting whole sports teams. The company is also soon to launch Fit Smart, its own wristworn activity tracker. The device tracks heart rate, calories, pace, distance, and stride rate and is designed to help athletes when they are running or training.
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.
