Fitness or Fashion? Nike Fuel Band

Updated on April 3, 2013

Need a Fitness Tracker? Have You Thought About the Nike Fuel Band?

Fitness is almost like an addiction for some people. For others, it's a hassle. In either case, a good fitness tracker can provide vital feedback that will help with evaluating current levels of fitness while providing the needed motivation to go harder and do more.

There have been some innovative trackers on the market in the last few years, many providing a heart rate monitor and watch-style data center. While these may seem kind of neat, there is an element of discomfort and awkwardness in wearing a strap around the body. These serve a purpose for some with specific interests, but for basic activity tracking, a wristband can be a bit more simple.

The Nike Fuel Band is such a system. It's a bit more than a glorified pedometer, and the remainder of this lens will discuss Nike Fuel Band features, costs, and functions. Additionally, you can explore second hand sources like Nike Fuel Band eBay listings and Nike Fuel Band alternatives that have lower price tags.

Is the Nike Fuel Band Cost a little high? Try second hand... - Nike Fuel Band eBay Listings

If I'm intrigued by this type of product, I often find that rather than purchase new, I can take advantage of online auctions. This is a great place to find the cheap Nike Fuel Band that someone didn't need...maybe they didn't want to track their fitness, a common issue for those who aren't quite ready for a new exercise program. Many people purchase fitness products with good intentions but never use them.

Need a Cheaper Activity Tracker?

The band trackers are probably the most sensible for the sake of not losing them. It's easy to lose little gadgets, but there are some great options that are more affordable. You just have to hang onto them.
