We’ve all seen it somewhere, or heard the rumors that Nike’s killing the Nike+ FuelBand to focus on just fitness software. Nike proved the rumors wrong as they just released a Nike+ FuelBand sync app for Android users. We all know that Android owns a huge chunk of the mobile phone market, so this strategy proves that the sportswear company still has good plans for the Nike+ FuelBand brand. Coming late to the Android platform means they have to battle with already existing alternatives live FitBit, Jawbone UP and others. The Android app works like the iOS companion app, it communicates over Bluetooth, and compatible with the newer Fuelband SE and a select list of Android phones. You should be running Android 4.3 and have Bluetooth LE support, or own any of these phones (Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One, Nexus 5 and the Moto X) if you plan on using the Nike+ FuelBand on your Android OS.
