Nike has release an updated version of its Nike+ FuelBand app for iPhone and iPod Touch. If you own the Nike+ FuelBand running accessory, you should be using this mobile app as it talks to your device to let you see your progress by tracking each step you take and the calories you burned as you run. The update brings in one essential feature if you’re also into the social networking app – Path. With the integration, you can now sync your Nike+ FuelBand activity with your Path profile. This allows you to keep track of the places and moments where they collected their NikeFuel. With Path, you will now see a graph of progress against your goal and the Path moments related to your progress. In short, Nike+ FuelBand and Path enables you to share your daily NikeFuel goal with those people who matter to you.
Aside from the Path integration, the updated Nike+ FuelBand app also now lets you do background syncing. All you need to do to start synching is to hold down the button on the Nike+ FuelBand for 3 seconds and let the app finish your sync then notify you when the syncing is done. So, you can start syncing and do other things while the process is ongoing. Other new features included in the update are the ability to set the time via the app instead of just on your desktop, offline availability of your activity data and the ability to check your device’s battery level through the app.
Update your Nike+ FuelBand app now or get it installed on your iPhone or iPod Touch if you still haven’t done so. But make sure that you have the Nike+ FuelBand running accessory as well.
