With 30 million users, NikeFuel is rapidly becoming the universal measure of activity. Now, with the launch of the Nike+ FuelBand App for Android we’re delighted to help even more athletes get better, This is another important step in the continued growth of our powerful ecosystem of digital products and services.
Just like the iOS app, the Fuelband app on Android communicates with the fitness band via Bluetooth and syncs up your information. Any Android phone running Android 4.3 and UP and Bluetooth LE support can download and run this app, right now that list includes the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One, Nexus 5 and the Moto X.
So if you were waiting to get your hands on the fuel band and the Android device in your pocket was the only hurdle, you might want to get to it. Now should we wait for the Windows Phone variant?
The app will monitor the same activity, and users can sign in using their Nike accounts or Facebook Logins, once you have your Fuelband registered to your account all you need to do is log-in from the same account to get up and running. Some of the features highlighted by Nike:
