Competitive Athletic Wristbands

Track and Share Your Workout Results with the Nike Fuelband Ice

— October 1, 2012 — Lifestyle
There are a lot of gadgets out there that will track your daily workout routines for you but they're not all as chic and convenient as the Nike FuelBand Ice.

Reminiscent of a futuristic communicator or sorts, this wristband can log more than just the number of steps you take or the calories you burn from running. The Nike Fuelband Ice measures "time, calories, steps, and NikeFuel -- a metric that will be the ultimate measure of your athletic activity." As a motivational piece for athletes and people who want to get fit, "the more you move, the more NikeFuel you earn" and you can earn the fuel by jogging, playing basketball and even throwing a Frisbee. The wristband is also equipped with a Bluetooth application that can upload your daily results into your phone so you can easily keep track of your progress.
