You’ll for­get this dis­creet ac­tiv­ity tracker is there un­til you glance at it for a spot of mo­ti­va­tion. It con­nects to your Ap­ple de­vice and you use the Fuelband app to set daily and hourly goals. The wrist­band’s col­ored LEDs then tell you how well, or badly, you’re do­ing at burn­ing en­ergy.

Simplicity is both its strength and its weak­ness. There are no com­plex con­trols, just a sin­gle but­ton to tell it you’re start­ing a yoga – or show the time when press­ing twice.

But its ac­tiv­ity tracker is less so­phis­ti­cated than some. For ex­am­ple, there’s no al­time­ter up a moun­tain and it’ll log you as be­ing mod­er­ately ac­tive.

Fea­tures in­clude sleep track­ing and the op­tion to share and com­pete with the huge Nike+ com­mu­nity.
