The Nike+ FuelBand, a wrist-worn activity tracker, is part of a larger wearable technology movement tied to the concept of the quantified self. At the time of its release, a metric system of fuel points offered a new way to tally fitness. The associated online platform integrated social media and included a leaderboard to motivate users. The release of the FuelBand was representative of Nike’s expansion from apparel to technology and data services.
