Once an owner of an Iphone, I recently switched to the dark side: Android. While the feel and aesthetics of Apple products cannot be denied, Android offers far more customization. It also helps when your first Android phone is the greatest one of all-time: The HTC One.
Okay, enough about phones. Let’s talk about the real issue. That is, the Nike FuelBand and it’s unwillingness to adapt an Android version for the mobile features. Nike has always been tight with Apple and seems to have something against the Androids.
Will the Nike FuelBand 2 be Android compatible? Think not.
Here’s an update on from the Nike Twitter account:
“To deliver the best experience for all Nike+ FuelBand users, we are focusing on the FuelBand experience across iOS and nikeplus.com, where you can sync your activity, set new goals, and connect with friends. At this time, we are not working on an Android version of the mobile app.”
Pissed off? You don’t need to be. There’s a product that is far superior, costs less, and supports Android.
It’s called FitBit.
I’ll be soon to do a full review of these two products!
