Nike+ Fuelband finally hits Android, now free on Google Play
Nike has finally released its popular Nike+ Fuelband on the Google Play store, allowing Android users to enjoy the app as well.
So far, the app had only been available for iOS users, and Nike received plenty of criticism for this exclusivity. While the company previously said it had no plans to make a version of this app for the Android platform, it now seems that Nike has changed its mind.
After lots of pressure from Android users, the Nike+ Fuelband is now officially available on Google Play, bringing most functions that iOS users have been able to enjoy for quite some time. The companion app works with the Fuelband fitness accessory and aims to make it easier for users to keep track of their fitness data.
It's worth pointing out, however, that the Android version of Nike+ Fuelband is only compatible with a limited number of high-end Android devices, and it doesn't support other gadgets other than the newer Fuelband SE.
The Nike+ Fuelband app requires Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or newer, and it also needs Bluetooth LE. In this context, only a few Android devices will work with the app. Compatible handsets include the HTC One, the Google Nexus 5, the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy S5, and the Motorola Moto X.
One of the most popular highlights of the Nike+ Fuelband app is its NikeFuel Daily Goal feature, which allows users to easily create, edit, and keep track of the progress they made toward a certain fitness goal. Combined with the fitness accessory itself, users can even keep track of their full workout sessions in order to see a detailed analysis of their effort once they're done sweating.
Leaderboard support, meanwhile, aims to give users more incentives by allowing them to compete against friends or against other users across the world. There are also other neat features designed for fitness enthusiasts, and the app's launch on Android marks a long-overdue step forward.
If you've been waiting for the Nike+ Fuelband app to become available for Android users as well, you can now head over to the Google Play store at this link and download the app for free.
