Nike has released a series of infographics -- put together from data obtained through the NikeFuel activity tracking system -- which show how weather conditions influence the activity levels of amateur athletes across the USA. The graphics are based on NikeFuel-generated data obtained through the so-called Nike+ ecosystem and Nike+ apps such as Nike+ Running, Nike+ Training Club, Nike+ FuelBand, and Nike+ Move.
The infographic shows that the perfect temperature range for physical activity in the US is between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit (between 15.5 and 21.1 degrees Centigrade), while the 'sweet spot' -- the peak physical activity temperature -- US is 66 degrees Fahrenheit (18.9 degrees Centigrade).
The infographics offer comparisons on activity levels between cities. Portland was found to be more active than Seattle, while Las Vegas bested Phoenix in the comparison of the desert cities.
