The numbers are staggering: One-third of Americans are obese; another third are overweight. Some 26 million Americans have Type 2 diabetes. An additional 79 million more are pre-diabetic. Thanks to these figures, the children of today have a good chance of becoming the first generation of Americans to die at younger ages than their parents.

AHHHH!!!

The Nike fuelband has arrived.

It came on Monday night, and I was quickly surprised and disappointed (for some reason the connection wasn’t working and it wouldn’t charge)… Thankfully, I somehow got it to work yesterday afternoon.

I think the most useful thing for me to understand is how your personal information is displayed.  Going through the motions of interacting with the information has been really helpful. 

Instant Feedback

Pressing the button on the device, and seeing the number of steps I’ve done is really pretty neat. I’ve read a lot of reviews and I think this is really crucial. My friend Kristen has oh so kindly let me borrow her  (broken) jawbone Up, and it’s really unsatisfying to have this thing on my wrist, and not know if it’s on, or if it’s correctly counting. (Maybe I’m being predisposed to the interaction of the Nike Fuelband…

(lights are cooool.)

texture & actual physical design

worried about it snapping/pinching me, but overall, I think it the band doesn’t really fit my ‘average’ (non athletic lifestyle). The real focus has been about the lights/experience of the ‘fuel’. 

+the metal clasp has been scratching on my computer..

Confused About two websites that I have to interact with:

I’m a little confused about how to share things with my friends. It’s really weird because there is a Nike Fuel website vs. a ‘NikePlus Running’ website…

It was originally exciting, because my brother just got the Nike Watch GPS tracker thinger, and I thought we could compete… but it’s hard to find him / know more friends that already have the nike plus and remember their email- (you would think there would be an easy facebook friend finder). Plus it’s really weird that I have to go onto a different website (nike running) to think about my network.

Other Feedback/Frustrations:

I don’t have an iPhone 4G. :( It doesn’t work with my 3G… The interaction where the device bluetooths to your phone.. is reeallyy. cool…. makes me want to get the iphone 4G

» along with that, I wish the bluetooth ‘magic’ also worked with your computer… the only way to see your progress throughout the week if you don’t have the newest iphone is to plug in the USB.  I understand that that’s how you get to charge it.
